Mercedes F1 Caps the Azerbaijan GP with 1-2 Victory

Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One finished the Azerbaijan Grand Prix with a one-two victory following the win of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton trailing behind in the second place.

In terms of number of wins, he is tied with his teammate, Hamilton, who bagged the Drivers’ Championship last year. However, despite the Mercedes drivers having two wins each, Bottas was able to grab the first place in the current Drivers’ Standings while Hamilton settled at second. The Finn has 87 points in his… Continue Reading »

Winners of the constructors title for the fifth season running, there seems to be no stopping Mercedes F1 on track. Lewis Hamilton is now a racer who can be backed years in advance to win the title, and perhaps the only regret of Silver Arrows fans is that the team spent such a long hiatus out of the game. Between 1956 and 2009, the name of Mercedes was absent from the list of Formula 1. Yet, there were some fantastic talents on board in the mid-1950s, with Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss being prominent names in that regard. They form the first part of this nostalgic list of famous… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton: The Second Most Successful Driver in F1

Lewis Hamilton finally took his spot as one of the Formula 1 greats when he grabbed his fifth World Drivers’ Championship (WDC) at the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix last Sunday. He is now tied with Juan Manuel Fangio in the record books in terms of having the most championships in the sport.

The race began with Hamilton on the pole position, so everyone saw his fifth championship reign coming in the US event. When the race went underway though, the Briton appeared to struggle when Raikkonen snatched the lead. The Finn gambled on softer tires with better grip but less durability, which paid off in his favor. The Ferrari driver maintained his position going to… Continue Reading »

Mercedes F1 Rewards Valtteri Bottas Equal Opportunity for the Championship in 2019

All that Lewis Hamilton needs to bag his fifth drivers’ championship is to win the next Formula 1 Grand Prix in the United States and hope that Sebastian Vettel finishes below the second place during the race. Some of his victories can be attributed to the efforts of his teammate Valtteri Bottas though. Mercedes AMG Petronas boss Toto Wolff warns that the full potential of the Finn will be unleashed in the 2019 season. Bottas has been labeled with a lot of names during his 2018 run. He was referred to as the “wingman“, “butler” and “second fiddle” by F1 personalities and the media because of his willingness to play… Continue Reading »
