Mercedes F1 Hat-trick Nostalgia

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 »

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.

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.

Confidence of Valtteri Bottas Diminishes Due to Lack of Wins in 2018

Being partnered to a four-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton and belonging to the top team in the sport today puts a lot of pressure to Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas. The Finn has not won a race since the start of the 2018 F1 season. His last victory came in Abu Dhabi last year. The highlights of his career this year so far are his six podium finishes. The statistics of Bottas definitely pales in comparison with Hamilton’s seven wins this season. It was also nothing compared to his performance in 2017, which gained him three wins, 10 podiums finishes, and four pole positions. Bottas admitted in his interview… Continue Reading »
