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…

  • 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.

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.
