There’s nothing left to play for, but it’s clear that Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton are still going for victories.

He pointed out that engine manufacturers decided to participate in F1 because of the concept, which fits what is happening on the roads. He added, the… Continue Reading »

The 2015 United States Grand Prix was not short on action and drama, even after only 12 cars managed to survive the tough wet conditions at the Circuit  of the Americas in Austin, Texas. In the end, though, Lewis Hamilton emerged victorious–both in the race and in claiming his second-straight Formula One driver’s championship. Hamilton also wins his third overall title, making him only the second British driver to win three. This will sting for Nico Rosberg, as he was smelling victory near the end but let the lead slip. Rosberg finished in P2, while Sebastian Vettel battled throughout the race and took the last podium spot. By lap 47’s restart,… Continue Reading »

It showed how the car would automatically react to certain traffic conditions. However, it also raised some safety concerns for customers such as the car getting hacked, the unpredictability of other human drivers, and most importantly, who… Continue Reading »
