Valtteri Bottas Says He Understands Swap Decision At The Japanese GP

At the recently concluded Formula One Japanese Grand Prix, Mercedes AMG Petronas once again emerged victorious with Lewis Hamilton winning the race. Along the way, Valtteri Bottas was given a team order to move over for his teammate. However, he said he completely understood the decision of his group. Earlier, Bottas was slapped with a gearbox penalty so he was forced to run an alternative strategy based on a report from ESPN. He got the lead at some point in the race but after a pit stop, Hamilton was catching up with him. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was also charging at them, which added to the intensity of the situation….

Hamilton wins 2017 Japanese GP

Lewis Hamilton won a relatively tightly contested race at the 2017 Japanese GP, with the challenge coming from an unexpected source. With Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel having issues with his car, and eventually needing to retire, the coast was clear for Hamilton – but Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was not going to just hand the victory to the Brit. Hamilton had to keep Verstappen at bay for a while, and this led to some tyre management issues later on. Still, the points leader managed to pull through with the win. Thanks to the race win and Vettel’s retirement, Hamilton was able to extend his lead in the championship race to 39… Continue Reading »

Hamilton takes first career pole in Suzuka

Lewis Hamilton achieved his first-ever career pole position at the Suzuka circuit, giving him an edge heading into the 2017 Japanese Grand Prix, where he expects another good battle with the Ferrari team. Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas was actually second-fastest in qualifying, but he will be slapped with a five-place grid penalty. This bumps Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel up to the front row. The Red Bulls qualified next, followed by Kimi Raikkonen in the other Ferrari. Raikkonen, however, will also be given a five-place gearbox penalty. It was a record-breaking qualifying session for Hamilton, who shattered the track record of 1:28.95 held previously by Michael Schumacher. He had already been close… Continue Reading »

Hamilton wins Singapore GP after Ferrari duo crashes out

Lewis Hamilton needed to do something special at the Singapore Grand Prix in order to have a shot at winning the race. Turns out, he needed only to wait. The Ferrari cars were ahead of the Mercedes team on the grid, as were the Red Bulls, which were sandwiched between the two red cars.
