Hamilton 2nd in Sepang as Verstappen wins Malaysian GP

Lewis Hamilton didn’t win the race, but it was kind of a win nonetheless. It was Max Verstappen who came home with the win at the Malaysian Grand Prix. Hamilton, however, still accomplished what he came to do–extend his lead over Sebastian Vettel in the championship race, with Hamilton finishing second in Sepang and Vettel down in fourth place. Vettel did manage to climb all the way to that spot from P19–an amazing feat no matter how you look at it–but you can rest assured this isn’t much of a consolation for the Ferrari driver. In addition, Ferrari lost Kimi Raikkonen to a turbo problem right before the race began…. Continue Reading »

Chalk up another pole position for championship leader Lewis Hamilton. The Brit struggled in the free practices but was amazing when it counted.

A crash between Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen, and a great-starting Kimi Raikkonen eliminated most of the Mercedes rivals right off the first corner. Soon enough, it was Hamilton leading the race with Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and the other Mercedes driven by Valtteri Bottas right behind. Those would be the first three retirements in a race that… Continue Reading »

Hamilton dominates Italian GP at head of Mercedes 1-2
