F1 Chinese GP: Hamilton leads Rosberg in comfortable Mercedes 1-2
Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes reasserted their authority over Formula 1 with a commanding Chinese Grand Prix victory.
Nico Rosberg had to settle for second place, ahead of the Ferraris of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, in a race that was close at times without ever truly coming to life.
Hamilton had made his intentions clear by angling his car very aggressively towards Rosberg’s on the grid.
He duly held his lead off the line, with Rosberg and Vettel stringing out behind the champion through the first stint.
The situation became more tense in the middle stint of the two-stop race, as both Rosberg and Vettel closed on Hamilton.
A frustrated Rosberg radioed Mercedes asking if Hamilton could speed up, as his tyres were wearing too much whenever he got closer than two seconds away from his team-mate’s rear wing.
When Ferrari brought Vettel in for his second stop ahead of the two Mercedes, Rosberg was pitted a lap later in an effort to prevent his countryman getting an undercut on his new tyres.
But rather than his rivals’ earlier stops putting Hamilton at a disadvantage, he was able to raise his pace considerably on his final laps on soft tyres.
Hamilton ran two laps longer than Rosberg and rejoined with a 6s cushion rather than the 2s advantage he had held prior to the stops.
Rosberg reduced Hamilton’s lead slightly before settling for second.
A safety car appearance with two laps to go – caused by Max Verstappen’s Toro Rosso parking on the pit straight in a cloud of smoke – made things even more comfortable for Hamilton, as the race finished under yellow.
Vettel was not a match for the Mercedes once all were onto medium tyres and fell away in third.
The Malaysian GP winner then came under late pressure from team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.
The Finn quickly cleared both Williams on the opening lap to make up for his qualifying frustration, and though he could not keep pace with the top three at first, he ran long in his middle stint and made up ground.
Raikkonen was still 1.4s behind Vettel when the late safety car came out and had to be content with fourth.
Williams ran a lonely and distant fifth and sixth with Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas, a minute behind the leaders prior to the field being bunched up.
Lotus scored its first points of the year with Romain Grosjean in seventh, but it was a wild race for his team-mate Pastor Maldonado.
The Venezuelan got ahead of Grosjean in the first pitstop sequence, before going down the pitlane entry escape road at his second stop.
A spin while trying to recover left him even further behind, and he then became embroiled in a spectacular battle with the McLarens of Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso.
After several fraught laps, this came to a head when Button hit the back of the Lotus at Turn 1, ending Maldonado’s race and prompting a stewards’ investigation.
Despite that, McLaren still got its first double finish of 2015 with Alonso and Button’s battered cars 12th and 13th.
Until his late engine failure, Verstappen was on course for eighth, having sliced through the field with some very accomplished overtaking.
But his problem completed a terrible day for Renault and the Red Bull-owned teams.
Daniel Ricciardo had tumbled to 17th with a terrible start and made heavy weather of coming back through the field to ninth between the Saubers of Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson, which scored again.
Daniil Kvyat was also out early with a suspected engine failure, while Carlos Sainz Jr spun at Turn 1 in the opening laps and later lost time with a gearbox problem before finishing between the McLarens and Manors in 14th.
Force India spent a while in the points as a unique three-stop strategy for Sergio Perez shook out, but in the end 11th was his limit.
A gearbox failure ended team-mate Nico Hulkenberg’s race.

Australian GP: Lewis Hamilton beats Nico Rosberg to win
Lewis Hamilton began the defence of his Formula 1 world championship with a commanding victory in the Australian Grand Prix, as Sebastian Vettel began his Ferrari career with a podium.
Hamilton led away from pole in Melbourne and only momentarily lost the lead to Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg during the pitstop sequence before securing the 34th win of his career.
Rosberg crossed the line second, 1.3 seconds adrift, as Mercedes picked up where it left off last season with a dominant performance in which the team finished 33s clear of the field.
Vettel bided his time before jumping Williams’s Felipe Massa at the mid-race pitstops by going longer to take third and confirm Ferrari’s improved pace.
Just 15 cars started the season-opening race, after both McLaren’s Kevin Magnussen and Red Bull’s Daniil Kvyat stopped on the way to the dummy grid with mechanical problems.
The field was further depleted after just a few corners, when Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen was clipped by Carlos Sainz Jr’s Toro Rosso at Turn 1.
That nudged the Ferrari into Felipe Nasr’s Sauber, which then ricocheted into Pastor Maldonado, spinning the Lotus driver into the barriers and out of the race.
This brought out the safety car and Lotus’s misery was compounded after just one lap when Romain Grosjean pitted before being pushed back into the garage having had a power issue on the formation lap.
Rookie Felipe Nasr provided Sauber with a sensational end to what has been a difficult weekend, which saw the team involved in a legal battle with Giedo van der Garde, as he finished a brilliant fifth.
It was an impressive debut for the Brazilian, who was 12s clear of home favourite Daniel Ricciardo in the Red Bull.
Nasr’s team-mate Marcus Ericsson, who started 16th, pulled off a late move on Sainz at Turn 13 to finish eighth for the Swiss team, which failed to score a single point last season.
Nico Hulkenberg scored points for a Force India team that managed just two-and-a-half days of pre-season testing because of delays with the production of the 2015 chassis as the German finished seventh.
Sainz crossed the line ninth to score points on his debut, having lost a lot of time with a slow pitstop, while Force India’s Sergio Perez, who had a messy race, closed out the top 10.
The Mexican spun, dropping to the back of the field, and then found himself facing the wrong way when he clumsily hit McLaren’s Jenson Button when attempting an opportunistic pass at Turn 3.
Button narrowly missed out on giving McLaren-Honda a remarkable points finish as he crossed the line 11th – and last.
However, it was the first time the team had managed to complete a race distance with its new car, following a pre-season littered with problems.
Raikkonen looked on course to finish fourth, but at his second stop his Ferrari team failed to fit the left-rear tyre properly.
The Finn rejoined, but pulled off the track a few corners later and retired with his engineer saying "sorry, Kimi" on team radio.
Toro Rosso’s Max Verstappen, who became Formula 1’s youngest driver by taking the start, retired when running ninth with smoke pluming from the rear of the car.

Hungarian GP: Lewis Hamilton takes his first Mercedes victory
Lewis Hamilton claimed his first victory for Mercedes with an imperious drive in the Hungarian Grand Prix.
The Briton pulled himself clear of a fraught race behind, in which Kimi Raikkonen ultimately beat Sebastian Vettel to second, Mark Webber salvaged fourth and Romain Grosjean’s chances were spoiled by a penalty.
Hamilton’s initial battle was with qualifying rivals Vettel and Grosjean, after a spicy first lap in which slow-starter Vettel had to defend hard from the Lotus as Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg also tried to get involved.
The Red Bull was right on the Mercedes’ tail at first, but as the opening stint wore on, Hamilton had some respite with Vettel instead under pressure from Grosjean.
The crucial moment for Hamilton was when he emerged behind Jenson Button after his first pitstop.
Hamilton rapidly overtook and, despite the McLaren’s best retaliatory efforts, pulled away.
Vettel could not do the same when he also found himself tailing Button after pitting.
The two made light contact, leaving Vettel concerned about his front wing and allowing Grosjean plenty of chances to attack, as Alonso closed in too.
It took until lap 24 for Vettel to finally pass Button, with Grosjean clashing with the McLaren as he tried to follow.
Both continued, but the incident will be investigated post-race.
Grosjean still got a penalty in the race as well. Following his second pitstop, he boldly passed Felipe Massa’s Ferrari around the outside of the fast Turn 4.
But the stewards adjudged that he had exceeded track limits in doing so and bestowed a drive-through, dropping him out of contention.
By the time Vettel was clear of Button, Hamilton had a commanding advantage over the world champion that he would not lose.
The other Red Bull was not defeated yet, though. Webber ran a very long first stint on his medium tyres and spent a while in the lead.
On their slightly different sequences, Hamilton twice emerged right behind Webber after pitstops, and twice passed him on the outside of Turn 3, with Webber ending up taking to the run-off in the second move.
Those passes ensured Webber had no chance of delaying Hamilton’s progress as the Briton wrapped Mercedes’ third victory of 2013.
Meanwhile Raikkonen worked his way forward on a two-stop strategy, spending the early part of the race trapped behind Massa before bringing himself into contention.
His consistent pace meant that he emerged in second place as the final stops played out, with both Red Bulls behind him.
Vettel tried his utmost to pass Raikkonen in the closing laps and complained that the Finn was over-defensive in what turned out to be a decisive dice with two laps to go.
Webber tried to chase down this pair but had to settle for fourth, while Alonso fell away from the leaders and could only fend off Grosjean for fifth.
McLaren got both its cars in the points on two-stop strategies, with Button seventh and Sergio Perez ninth.
First-lap contact with Rosberg and a later brush with Adrian Sutil hampered Massa’s day and he finished eighth.
Rosberg tumbled down to 12th in his incident with the Ferrari. He recovered to ninth before a fiery late-race failure.
The Mercedes’ retirement allowed Pastor Maldonado to end Williams’s points drought in 10th position.

Se fossi al posto di Kimi
Come è giusto che sia, da qualche giorno tanti amici mi chiedono: beh, ma che cosa ci dobbiamo aspettare adesso dal Biondino, andrà davvero alla Red Bull o resterà in casa Lotus?
Premetto che non ho informazioni certe, mica sono Filippo Vettel!
Inoltre, non sono riuscito a consultare il mio Consigliori in materia finnica, il sempre equilibrato Mazgiorg.
Facciamo così: diamo per scontato, visto che nessuno lo nega, che ci sia una trattativa tra i Bibitari e il Santo Bevitore. E supponiamo anche che Raikkonen abbia la libertà di decidere tra le varie opzioni.
Cosa fareste voi, raikkoniani o meno, se foste al posto suo (oltre a scolarvi una vodka ghiacciata)?
Ecco come mi comporterei io.
Ci andrei, alla corte di Horner the Corner.
Per le seguenti ragioni:
1) Abbiamo tutti un orgoglio e se quattro anni dopo essere stato messo a piedi dalla Ferrari mi si presenta il team che dal 2010 domina la scena, insomma, è una soddisfazione da paura, non è che mi stiano facendo proposte la Sauber o la Force India, con tutto il rispetto.
2) Poi ci andrei perchè mi importa sega del quadriennio iridato di Vettel, sono un campione del mondo anche io, fammi vedere da vicino com’è questo Vettelino, in fin dei conti un partner tripalluto non lo ha mai avuto.
3) Ci andrei perché non mi sono spostato di un millimetro quando in McLaren mi dissero con un anno di anticipo che prendevano Montoya e ne ho fatto polpette in fretta. Ci andrei perchè nell’estate del 2005, quando Todt mi offrì la successione del Sommo Sacerdote di Kerpen, ecco, non ci ho pensato su manco un nanosecondo, ho firmato il contratto in una stanza d’hotel di Hockenheim e ti saluto e sono, mi scolai una bottiglia di vodka per la felicità, naturalmente quando il Pinguino aveva lasciato la camera, l’ometto ha il gravissimo difetto di essere astemio (almeno in una cosa, lui e il Dom si somigliano, toh).
4) Infine, un anno fa, di questi tempi, sono stato io ad offrirmi alla Ferrari per il grande ritorno, visto che in Lotus non mi pagavano, forse mi avevano preso per un fornitore della Pubblica Amministrazione in Italia, non so se mi spiego. E uno che non aveva timore a tornare a Maranello accanto all’Innominato Innominabile, su, può aver paura di un confronto con Vettel?
Hamilton: “Sarebbe bello vedere Raikkonen in Red Bull”
Lewis Hamilton pensa che Kimi Raikkonen dovrebbe prendere al volo l’occasione di andare in Red Bull nel 2014. Il pilota della Mercedes ha dichiarato che Raikkonen, il quale sta al momento valutando se affiancare Sebastian Vettel o restare alla Lotus, potrebbe essere un osso duro per il tedesco.
“Sarebbe davvero figo vedere Kimi in Red Bull. Per Seb sarebbe un momento difficile” ha dichiarato Hamilton al Sun.
“Kimi è un pilota incredibile, tutti lo sanno, quindi con una vettura ancora migliore sarebbe interessante vedere cosa potrebbe fare con essa”.
Hamilton d’altra parte ha spesso faticato a tenere il passo di Nico Rosberg quest’anno ma Fernando Alonso ha dichiarato di non essere sorpreso dalle prestazioni del tedesco della Mercedes: “L’abbiamo visto battere Michael (Schumacher, ndr) negli ultimi anni, e non perché Michael aveva dimenticato come guidare ma perchè Nco ha fatto un lavoro fantastico, e ora sta migliorando ancora” ha spiegato lo spagnolo a Sport Bild.
US GP: Hamilton wins from Vettel and Alonso, title battle goes to wire
Lewis Hamilton beat Sebastian Vettel to victory in an absorbing United States Grand Prix, as Fernando Alonso’s third place kept the Formula 1 championship battle alive.
Despite his defeat at Austin, Vettel remains title favourite, as he takes a 13-point lead over Alonso into next weekend’s finale at Interlagos. The constructors’ championship is settled though, with Red Bull beating it beyond its rivals’ reach.
Hamilton’s relentless pursuit of Vettel kept tension building throughout the race. The McLaren lost second to Vettel’s Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber at the start, but soon re-passed the Australian. Webber retired with alternator failure soon afterwards, no doubt prompting nerves in the Red Bull garage.
Vettel’s car was still running smoothly, but it did not have the pace to escape from Hamilton.
The champion pulled out a little breathing space just before the first pitstops, only for Hamilton to come back with a vengeance once they were both on fresh hard tyres.
Hamilton spent most of the middle of the race tantalisingly close to Vettel, but was frustrated time and time again by the Red Bull’s superior traction. The McLaren would close in through the fast first sector, then struggle to get near enough on the DRS zone straight.
Finally on lap 42 out of 57 Hamilton managed to pull the move off after Vettel lost time in traffic before the DRS area. Vettel moved to the inside, but the McLaren’s straightline pace advantage was so great that McLaren was comfortably ahead before the next corner – prompting angry radio messages from Vettel about backmarker Narain Karthikeyan’s HRT.
The race was far from over, as Hamilton never quite escaped from Vettel. The Red Bull did not manage to get within striking range and Hamilton was able to win in America for the second time in his career, crossing the line a mere six tenths ahead of Vettel, who at least wrapped up another teams’ title for his employer.
Alonso’s progress to third was mostly achieved via a superb start from his controversial grid slot. He then swept around the outside at the first corner to secure fourth, which became third after Webber’s exit.
His Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa recovered from his generously-accepted 11th place on the grid to fourth, showing great race pace throughout.
Massa came under slight threat from Jenson Button late on. The McLaren had fallen right back to 16th on lap one, before flying through the field as its tyres came to life. Button ran to lap 35 before pitting, and then battled past the two Lotuses to secure fifth.
Kimi Raikkonen looked like he might challenge Alonso at one stage. Both lost a few seconds at their pitstops, with Raikkonen falling back into traffic and then being overtaken by Massa and Button in the second stint.
Raikkonen finished just ahead of team-mate Romain Grosjean, who recovered well from spinning on lap five then requiring a lap-nine pitstop. He fell right back to 22nd, but flew thereafter.
Nico Hulkenberg claimed eighth for Force India by fending off battling Williams duo Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna. The pair banged wheels at Turn 1 in the closing laps as Maldonado passed his team-mate.
Daniel Ricciardo starred in the first stint, rising from 18th on the grid to fifth by staying out until lap 30. But that tactic did not pay off for Toro Rosso as Ricciardo was only 12th in the end.
Mercedes had a terrible race. Michael Schumacher was overtaken by rival after rival in the opening stint, falling from fifth on the grid to 14th before his first pitstop. He would require more tyres later on too, leaving him 16th, three places behind team-mate Nico Rosberg.

Hamilton holds off Raikkonen to win the Hungarian Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton fended off Kimi Raikkonen to claim victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix and revitalise a title campaign that had begun to drift since McLaren’s last win in Canada.
Hamilton led the majority of the race, but had a Lotus on his tail nearly all of the way.
Initially it was Romain Grosjean, who dismissed a strong challenge from Sebastian Vettel at the first corner, which allowed Jenson Button to then demote the Red Bull to fourth through Turns 2 and 3.
Button (McLaren) could not match Hamilton and Grosjean’s early pace, so the McLaren and Lotus pulled away in a two-car lead fight.
Hamilton had it under control, although Grosjean did ramp up the pressure for a while in the middle stint of their two-stop strategies when he was on softs and the Briton had medium Pirellis.
When Button made an early second of three stops, Vettel was free to start catching the leaders too, but in the end it was Raikkonen who emerged almost from nowhere to become Hamilton’s main challenger.
Raikkonen had been sixth in the opening stint, then passed Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari in the first stops. His strong late-stint pace on a long run on softs in his next stint then allowed him to lead for a spell and vault from fifth to second, firmly resisting team-mate Grosjean as he emerged from his final stop.
Hamilton and Raikkonen were then tied together until the flag, but there was nothing the Lotus could do to pass the McLaren.
Grosjean held on to third ahead of Vettel, who made a third pitstop without losing a place and charged back to attack the Lotus on fresh softs, to no avail.
Alonso calmly protected his championship lead on a tough day for Ferrari, finishing fifth. For a while it looked like main title rival Mark Webber would trim a little from Alonso’s cushion. The Australian jumped from 11th to seventh on lap one, then got ahead of Alonso at the second stops. But making a third tyre stop cost Webber and he fell to eighth.
Button’s three-stop plan was also unsuccessful, as his second stop left him trapped behind Bruno Senna for a spell. He got back in front of the Brazilian in the final tyre changes then chased Alonso home in sixth.
Senna resisted Webber for seventh, delivering one of his best drives of the season on a day when his Williams team-mate Pastor Maldonado lost ground at the start then received a drive-through penalty for barging Paul di Resta’s Force India aside in one of the race’s few concerted passing attempts.
Felipe Massa was ninth – four places but just a few seconds behind team-mate Alonso. Nico Rosberg salvaged a point for Mercedes as his team-mate Michael Schumacher endured one of his most depressing races in Formula 1. The seven-time champion was left on the grid in an aborted initial start, joined the race from the pits, received a pitlane speeding penalty, then retired from 18th late on.
