F1: Vettel Wins 3rd Straight Title; Schumacher Bids Farewell with 7th Place Finish

The safety car escorted the remaining cars through the chequered flag at the end of the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix, effectively ending the 2012 F1 season—with Sebastian Vettel officially taking his third-straight drivers’ championship and being the youngest player to do so. Meanwhile, compatriot Michael Schumacher was able to hold on for some nice points, finishing at 7th in a chaotic rain-filled race. Upcoming Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who managed to wrest the race lead from erstwhile leader Nico Hulkenberg, got clipped by the same car with 15 laps left and the McLaren-Mercedes suffered suspension damage that forced him into retire. As expected, the rain led to many slips and… Continue Reading »

F1: Brazilian GP Preview—End of an Era as Schumacher Retires

It’s the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix, the last stop of the current Formula One season. As it is the end of another exciting F1 year, this race will also likely herald the end of an era—the Michael Schumacher era, in the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team. It will be the 7-time champion’s final race for the team, as Lewis Hamilton has been signed for next year to run alongside Nico Rosberg. Calling Michael’s brief, and rather uneventful, 3-year stint with the Mercedes team an ‘era’ might be a tad premature, but considering what he brought to the team, he still had a definite impact in the identity and visibility for… Continue Reading »

F1: Mercedes Fails to Finish in Points in Indian GP

It was yet another dismal run for Mercedes AMG Petronas at the 2012 Indian Grand Prix, as both drivers failed to finish with championship points.
