Check Out The Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Video That Hyped The Monaco GP

The video released by Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS prior to the Grand Prix is rather impressive and may make Formula One an appealing option for people looking for a sport to follow, as shown on a report from autoevolution.com. This adrenaline-pumping video can be likened to an awe-inspiring half-time talk given by a great coach. The video was meant to hype up the Monaco GP since the appeal of Formula One has been waning in the last ten years. It may be necessary to nudge the FIA to find a solution to make the Formula One stimulating again. The current state of the race was not like what it was two decades… Continue Reading »

So far in 2016, Lewis Hamilton has not had much luck. The defending Formula One drivers champion hasn’t won a race in four tries, struggling with reliability issues on his F1 W07 Hybrid multiple times. In the free practices leading up to qualifying, the car issues continued until the team decided to go with a setup that’s closer to Nico Rosberg’s–and guess what, Hamilton took pole position (the 52nd of his career and third this season) to start the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix ahead of the pack. Now, what does the Brit have to do to win the race? Get a good start “If you want to change things pole is… Continue Reading »

Mechanics Swap in Mercedes F1 is Not an Issue

Nico Rosberg is on fire. He’s been unrelenting in the first four races of the 2016 season. Some analysts claimed that his advantage may have come from swapping mechanics with the reigning Formula One Drivers’ World Champion Lewis Hamilton. However, an expert does not agree with such analysis. Dominic Harlow, a former Williams senior operations engineer, commented on the matter in an interview featured at Sky Sports F1 page earlier. He said that the swapping of the five personnel of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team between the garage of Rosberg and Hamilton posed no significant impact in terms of car performance. Harlow explained that the performance change would only happen… Continue Reading »

Mercedes gets one-two as Rosberg keeps rolling in Russian GP

It’s looking more and more like Nico Rosberg’s year, as the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 driver took home the victory for the fourth straight race this 2016 F1 season. Teammate Lewis Hamilton took advantage of an early appearance by the safety car to move from P10 in the starting grid to a second-place finish, giving the team its second one-two finish this year so far. Kimi Raikkonen took the final podium spot, but the Ferrari just did not have the pace to challenge the Mercedes cars in this one. The red cars’ efforts were also hampered early on after Sebastian Vettel was bumped from behind by Daniil Kvyat not once but twice,… Continue Reading »

Red Bull F1 Would Win Races Again with Mercedes Engines

Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone strongly believes that Red Bull Racing would be winning races again if it had managed to land an engine deal with its bitter rival, Mercedes-Benz. With the winning engine of Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team, it is no surprise that its rivals would also want a piece of its power unit, or at least be able to get its technology. As of last year, Red Bull indicated its intention to get an engine supply deal with its Mercedes. It wasn’t clear how the negotiations went, or if there was even an official negotiation between the two, as there were different versions of the story—depending on who was telling… Continue Reading »
