Can Nico Rosberg Still Win the 2015 Championship?

All is not yet lost for Nico Rosberg. Mathematically, he could still win the drivers’ title. But with other considerations involved, his chances are quite slim. Toto Wolff advised the German driver to “switch on to 2016 mode and bounce back next year” during his interview with Motorsport website. Currently, Rosberg has 229 points under his record in Formula One Drivers’ Standings. That’s 73 points behind the F1 Drivers’ Championship leader and his teammate Lewis Hamilton’s accumulated 302 points so far. With only four races remaining and the double scoring in play, he could still snatch an upset for the championship. However, that would mean Hamilton should score very poorly… Continue Reading »

Mercedes Makes a Disastrous Performance at F1 Singapore GP

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel wins the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix. This is his 42nd career victory, which now puts him in the third position in the list of F1 racers with the most wins. He overtakes Ayrton Senna’s 41 career wins, and he is merely nine wins away from equaling the record held by Alain Prost. The current world champion didn’t fare well in the event. Mercedes-AMG Petronas driver Lewis Hamilton had to retire somewhere in Lap 33 after struggling with his car. Sources say he had an issue with the pedal.

It’s official: we have a competition in our hands for the 2015 Formula One season.

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 »
