Hamilton 5th, Rosberg 7th in 2013 Korean Grand Prix

It was another solid outing for the Mercedes F1 team. Solid, but most definitely not stellar. At the 2013 Korean Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton finished in fifth place, with teammate Nico Rosberg a couple of spots behind him in P7. The finish secures a bunch more important points for the team, yet it underscores the inability of the team to consistently get superb performance out of the car. At least, it hasn’t been enough to really grab some more wins. Tire wear has reared its ugly head, with Hamilton suffering from it on his right front one, right in his second stint after a stop. Rosberg, on the other hand, had… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton Had to Win Belgium for Mercedes

We knew heading into the Belgian Grand Prix this past weekend that being able to score another win would be pivotal for the Mercedes team’s campaign. Newcomer Lewis Hamilton had just scored his first race win, and being able to win another one would definitely boost the team’s chances to get back in the hunt for the title. Alas, the team was not fated to win the first race after the summer break. Hamilton, starting from pole position, had to settle for third place, behind Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso. Incidentally, Vettel sits atop the drivers’ standings with eight races to go, and Alonso is in second place. Sure, the… Continue Reading »

[F1] Hamilton Happy to Get Win, Rosberg Remains Upbeat

After winning the 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton was finally able to get a big monkey off his back. It took him nine races to get his first win as a driver for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team, but he’ll take it gladly and it couldn’t have come at a better time, heading into the midway break of the season. It was Hamilton’s 22nd career race win, and his fourth overall at the Hungaroring. “We really didn’t expect this when we came here this weekend and I said last night that I would need a miracle to win today,” said the British driver. “Well, just maybe… Continue Reading »

[F1] Lewis Hamilton Wins 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton cruised all the way to the 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix title with a magnificent drive and with some breaks going his way in a track on which it was hard to overtake. The decisive win effectively keeps his championship hopes alive. He certainly took advantage of his third-straight pole position, finally converting it into a win, which was incidentally his first as a Silver Arrows driver. Hamilton is no stranger to starting in P1 only to be overtaken by Red Bull cars off the five red lights. This time, Hamilton was able to retain P1 this time around, with Sebastian Vettel in P2 being distracted by a blazing-fast… Continue Reading »

[F1] Lewis Hamilton Grabs Hungarian GP Pole Position

When the Mercedes drivers did exceptionally well in Q1 and Q2 for the 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix, no doubt the question on everyone’s minds was whether the two Silver Arrows could hold on. While Nico Rosberg topped the first two rounds of qualifying, it was Lewis Hamilton who claimed pole position on the starting grid for tomorrow’s race at the Hungaroring. This latest pole makes it three in a row for Hamilton, the first time in his career that he has achieved this feat. It’s also his fourth pole in 10 races so far this season. So far, though, he hasn’t been able to convert any of those into race… Continue Reading »
