F1: Malaysian GP qualifying – Mercedes’ Hamilton takes pole; Rosberg in P3

Don’t look now, but Ferrari’s trying to spoil the party. Lewis Hamilton will start the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday in pole position, after edging out Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg took P3 on the starting grid after a rainy qualifying session. The three Q3 times for the top 3 qualifiers were close: Hamilton posted 1:49.834, Vettel 1:49.908, and Rosberg 1:50.299. Hamilton actually set that time on his initial flying lap and never actually got to improve it, allowing Vettel to edge a bit too close for comfort. In the end, though, Hamilton was able to clinch his 40th career F1 pole position. Meanwhile, surrendering P2 to the Ferrari means ending a… Continue Reading »

Formula One Speed Trap Records in Jerez Showed Mercedes was the Fastest

Ferrari stole the show last week during the Formula One testing in Jerez. Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel grabbed headlines for logging the quickest finish in three of the four days of tests in Spain. Another Ferrari-powered car driven by Sauber’s Felipe Nasr also recorded the fastest time on one of the mentioned days. So, will this signal the end of the dominance of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team, and bring back Ferrari to its former glory? Not likely. Ferrari might have gained significant improvements in its power unit this season, but teams with Mercedes engines remain as forces to be reckoned with. This is particularly true with the 2014 Constructors’ Champion. According… Continue Reading »
