    Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton became a two-time Formula 1 world championship after taking the chequered flag at the season closing Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. His teammate, Nico Rosberg faced the agony of defeat after the ERS on his W05 Hybrid failed midway through the race, relegating any chances of him putting on a fight to Hamilton. The German showed great sportsmanship by going to the green room and congratulating the Brit for the title. The two Williams drivers made it onto the podium with great drives from second row of the grid. Daniel Ricciardo started the race from the pitlane and finished it…

The Yas Marina Circuit will have the last word in Hamilton and Rosberg’s battle for the drivers  championship.  Permutations  Taking in account that this is the first time, and probably the last, that a Grand Prix will give double points to the drivers (adding even more excitement to the race) and with Lewis 17 points ahead of his German rival, here it is the variety of options they have to end the year being crowned as Sebastian Vettel’s…

Hamilton had the upper hand over his teammate in the first two legs of qualifying, but when it mattered the most, he tumbled under pressure. Rosberg would need Hamilton to finish in third place or lower, with him taking the top spot of the podium, if he is to take the drivers crown. Hamilton, meanwhile, can afford to consolidate his starting position of second but given his style, he would prefer to take the title with…

Toto revealed that 1st March, 2015 is the deadline for the 2016 power unit regulation changes. Everybody agreed that for 2015, not a lot could be done because of time crunch. But for 2016, apart from Mercedes and to a certain extent Williams, both Ferrari & Red Bull were unanimous to state that they want regulations changes. Christian Horner went on to state that, “Maybe we need to even go as far as looking at a different engine, a new engine.
  • Abu Dhabi GP Long run pace analysis: Advantage Hamilton

    21 Nov 2014 | 12:01 pm
    The second practice session at Yas Marina Circuit concluded with Lewis Hamilton topping the timesheets for Mercedes ahead of sole title Nico Rosberg. Two duo were separated by just one tenth of a second with Hamilton clocking a laptime of 1:42.113. In the long runs, the Brit enjoyed a much bigger advantage with his average lap time being 47.599 as compared to Rosberg’s 47.847. Hamilton is known for his supreme qualifying pace but we know Rosberg can pressurise the 2008 world champion to steal pole position, as he did in Brazil a fortnight ago.

We started off thinking that it was going to be fairly static as most of the key players had contracts that last until the end of 2015, but after a summer of discontent at Maranello, Ferrari called Fernando Alonso's bluff and signed Sebastian Vettel to partner Kimi Raikkonen in 2015.
