Also in the second free practice at the Spielberg racetrack, both Mercedes racers were the fastest. Lewis Hamilton was once again faster than his teammate Valtteri Bottas, the third this time was Sebastian Vettel. Mercedes brought a new aerodynamic package to Austria this weekend, and the racers took the first two places in both of today's free practice sessions. Hamilton set the fastest time of the second free practice 1:04 .579 soon at the beginning of it with the hardest hardness of tires (soft) that Pirelli brought to Austria. Although the Briton continued to use ultrasoft tires he did not improve his best time. Valtteri Bottas was 0.176 seconds behind him in second place. Sebastian Vettel was the closest to the Mercedes racers.
Lewis Hamilton was voted the best athlete in Europe in a vote involving news agencies. The Briton won with only a point advantage over the goalkeeper of the German national football team Manuel Neuer, but spectators and fans of motorsport reacted to the results with indignation, as the world champion of the MotoGP class, Marc Marquez, was only the ninth best athlete in Europe. rally champion Sebastien Ogier is not even among the top ten. Viewers, not just motorsport enthusiasts, blame the winner's selection for the fact that Formula One is not least a team sport, so it's unfair to say that a driver whose success or failure depends heavily on the race car and hundreds of team members is a better athlete than for example, a skier whose r
The Formula One caravan will test a new system in Abu Dhabi called the Info Wing (roughly translated, data wings). It is an LED screen mounted on the car above the racer's head, which will show where the racer is driving. This will make it easier for spectators in the stands to watch the races, and from the stands it will also be possible to see on which tires the racer will drive and who set the fastest lap. The system will receive data directly from the race management and was invented by Anthony Hamilton, the father and former manager of Lewis Hamilton. The FIA will initially test the system on Thursday or Friday on its safety car, and later, on Tuesday, when the two-day test will take place, on the Force Indie race cars. "It is a system that will inform viewers about the racer 's place, as well as some other information
Lewis Hamilton became the most successful British racer in the history of Formula One by winning yesterday’s race in Austin, Texas. For the win, he clashed, as is customary this season, with teammate Nico Rosberg. Hamilton could not keep up with the German at first, but after a stop in the pits he started to drive faster and overtook Rosberg somewhere in the middle of the race. The former McLarn prodigy thus recorded his 32nd career win, one more than Nigel Mansll, and it was also his fifth consecutive win in his career, the longest string of his victories since a Formula One race. The Briton also increased his advantage in the overall standings of the World Cup. He now has a 24-point advantage over Rosberg, which means that the season can in no way be decided before the last race in
Italian media have been buzzing about the arrival of Lewis Hamilton in Maranello, sparking rumors of the British moving to Ferrari, where other rumors say they are parting ways with visibly disgruntled Kimi Raikkonen. All in all, La Gazzetta dello Sport calmed down a bit, where they explained that Hamilton was looking at Ferrari road racing cars in the city, which he would like to add to his collection. Nevertheless, many are speculating that Hamilton may have deliberately sparked rumors with the visit, putting pressure on Mercedes to support him more heavily in this year's World Cup fight, or to negotiate better terms with his current employer when renewing his contract. . At Mercedes, they have repeatedly stated that their two racers do not enter the duel
Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg got involved in a psychological war started just this season, when Mercedes put such a dominant race car on the track that they only have rivals in each other, after only a few races of the season. All in all, it got even hotter before the race for the Monaco Grand Prix when the Briton said he was a shade better than his team rival this year, mainly because he is much more “hungry” for success. “I grew up in a not-so-beautiful place called Stevenage,” Hamilton said before the race. “I lived on the couch in my dad’s apartment and Nico grew up in Monaco with planes, hotels, sailboats and the like, so I want to succeed more,” he added. Well, the reckless statement he wanted to gain sympathy for had just the opposite effect. Hamilton is ours
Lewis Hamilton said after the race for the Monaco Grand Prix that he was happy to have managed to limit the damage with second place. When he couldn't pass the German in the first corner at the beginning of the race, Hamilton was left with no ideas on how to break through in front of his teammate throughout the race. However, when the dirt under the visor tempted him towards the end of the race, he had to focus on defending himself against Red Bull's Daniel Ricciard. "It's a good day behind us. I'm pleased we managed to catch another double win," said a visibly upset Hamilton. "I felt very strong, but it's very difficult to overtake here. Luckily I didn't make any mistakes," he added in an otherwise very sparse conversation after the race. The 2008 season champion is now four points behind Rosberg after six races.
Nico Rosberg is again in the lead in the overall standings of the World Championship after winning the race for the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday. The Mercedes cart ended up in front of teammate Lewis Hamilton, who narrowly overtook Red Bull racer Daniel Ricciard, who approached the Briton dangerously when rubbish hit him in the eye under the visor. Despite the penalty after the race, Jules Bianchi secured the first points in Formula One for both Marussia and himself. After heated relations between the Mercedes racers, a possible complication between the Silver Arrows was expected at the start of the race, but Rosberg, who had bad starts in previous races, immediately escaped from the first place, so Hamilton did not even have a chance to attack. Behind them, Ricciardo fell to fifth place, they overtook him
Mercedes racer Lewis Hamilton has recorded the fastest time of the morning part of the first day of testing taking place in Barcelona this week. The winner of the race in Spain finished the three-hour morning training as the fastest with a time of 1: 44.291 on a wet track, and drove 27 laps. The teams were greeted by rain at the Katalunya racetrack in the morning, which delayed the start of testing by one hour, and what was happening on the track was also limited due to low temperatures, which hovered around 16 degrees Celsius. The afternoon portion of today’s testing will begin an hour earlier, and teams are hoping conditions will improve. The second fastest time belonged to Williams racer Felipe Massa, and Red Bull reserve racer Sebastien Buemi was third. The fourth time was set by McLarn’s Jenson Butt
Niki Lauda, the non-executive director of Mercedes, said Lewis Hamilton is invincible after recording his fourth consecutive victory in Spain. Although teammate Nico Rosberg narrowed the gap slightly towards the end of the race, Hamilton, who started the race from the best starting position, was not even attacked. With the fourth victory, the Briton took the lead in the overall standings of this year's championship. “Lewis is invincible, we can say that without hesitation,” Lauda is convinced. "He's getting better with every race, he hasn't made any mistakes so far and no one can beat him at the moment. Nico tried to beat him in every way. He tried hard but he couldn't overtake him. Lewis is excellent!" Hamilton and Rosberg are separated by only three points in the championship, and the next race will be next weekend in Mont
