Bottas cruises to Abu Dhabi GP win to close 2017 F1 season; Hamilton finishes 2nd

Valtteri Bottas had an anticlimactic win in an anticlimactic race, cruising comfortably from pole position to take the victory at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to close out the 2017 F1 season. The Finn had no problems closing this one out. Bottas finished 3.899 seconds ahead of teammate and champion Lewis Hamilton, who finished in second place. It was only the fourth 1-2 finish for Mercedes this season. t was also a much-needed victory for Bottas. He went through a relatively bad second half of the season that saw him post two retirements. He was renewed by the team for 2018, so it must be a good feeling to give the… Continue Reading »

Bottas second, Hamilton surges to fourth after starting from pit lane at Brazilian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton just fell short of making an improbable comeback after starting from the pit lane. The world champion finished in fourth place after climbing back up the grid, as Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel cruised to a solid win after getting out in front in the opening lap ahead of Valtteri Bottas in pole. The race finished with Bottas second, and Kimi Raikkonen took the final podium spot in the 2017 F1 season’s penultimate race. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen went fifth after Hamilton, while his teammate followed in sixth place. Felipe Massa went a solid seventh in his final race at Interlagos. Fernando Alonso posted a strong eight-place finish. Sergio Perez… Continue Reading »

Bottas in pole as Hamilton crashes at Brazilian GP quali

With nothing to play for, you’d think Lewis Hamilton could take it easy. It was Valtteri Bottas making the most of qualifying as Hamilton crashes into a wall at 160mph early into the qualifying session of the Brazilian GP. We have Bottas in pole after he just barely got past Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton did say he will still try to win the final two events of this 2017 Formula One World Championship season, so we’ll see how the recently crowned F1 champion will fare coming from the back of the grid. It’s the first time Hamilton was out by Q1 since late August 2016, at the Belgian Grand Prix. He still… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton bags fourth F1 title

Lewis Hamilton clinched his fourth F1 championship at the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix. Despite finishing a mere ninth, Hamilton took home the title and became the most successful British driver in F1 history. He now has one more championship over Sir Jackie Stewart, and he will work towards matching Juan Manuel Fangio’s 5 titles next season. Hamilton is now tied in third place for most all-time F1 titles. Alain Prost and Sebastian Vettel both have four as well. Vettel needed to finish at least second to keep the championship contested, but an incident between the Ferrari and Hamilton’s Mercedes on the first lap led to front wing damage for Vettel… Continue Reading »

Vettel takes pole at Mexican GP as Hamilton settles for P3

Lewis Hamilton isn’t going to get the smooth-sailing title-clinching run he likely hoped for before this weekend at the Mexican GP. The championship leader will have to start from the second row of the grid on Sunday, after Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel secured the 50th pole position of his career. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen had hoped he put in a good enough time to take pole and become the youngest pole-sitter in the history of the Mexican GP, but Vettel had other plans. The German driver will do his best in the last three races to complicate matters for Hamilton, who in turn is seeking his fourth career F1 title. Hamilton… Continue Reading »

Hamilton inches closer towards F1 title after US Grand Prix win

Lewis Hamilton won the 2018 US Grand Prix from pole position and put one foot in the door of his fourth F1 title. He is now 66 points ahead of title rival Sebastian Vettel, who is still in it from a mathematical perspective. But there are only three races left. That’s a max of 75 points if one can win all three. The chances of Hamilton letting this title go are really slim. In fact, the only way the title doesn’t get clinched in the next race is if Hamilton finishes sixth or lower while Vettel wins the race. Hamilton has not finished lower than second place in his last… Continue Reading »

Hamilton takes pole at 2018 US GP

Lewis Hamilton was able to secure pole position at the 2018 US GP, following a solid qualifying session that saw him post a time three-tenths of a second faster than rival Sebastian Vettel. Of course, getting pole by no means guarantees a win, and Vettel can still spoil the fun as long as he does not make any race-ending mistakes. Hamilton’s 1:33.108 was good for the new track record at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas. It is his 11th pole this season, and the 72nd overall of his career. In addition, Hamilton moved to the top of the all-time front-row list with 117 total for his career. The… Continue Reading »
