F1 Trophies Are Not Good Enough For Lewis Hamilton

Jul 02, 2015

Highest standards in everything (Photo: Thisisf1)

Formula One must be really boring now. Not just for spectators, but for drivers as well. Lewis Hamilton is so fed up with things for example, that he started to criticize… the trophies. Not the lack of competition, the artificial overtaking process or the quiet and not very intimidating cars, but he slapped those who provide the actual pieces representing Grand Prix wins on the podium.

He wants quality pieces, preferably made of gold, okay, who doesn’t, but it is somehow ridiculous if you hear a driver complaining about baubles. Especially if that particular driver is a two-time world champion, who won his first British Grand Prix in 2008 in pouring rain…

The Guardian: Lewis Hamilton: British Grand Prix gives me the biggest buzz

Two-time British world champion driver Lewis Hamilton is the number one favourite to win the 2015 British Grand Prix. He won four out of eight races this year and in the build up to this year’s event, he recalled the 2008 Silverstone race, where he was able to pull out a victory in his second season.

“My favourite British Grand Prix is still that win in the rain,” he said. “I qualified fourth but then the heavens opened and I knew that it was my day. I got a great start and I just followed the lines that I took from my experience of Formula Renault days. It was a great race and everybody was standing every single time I went through Abbey, in the pouring rain with umbrellas up. That was a really special time. I won by 68 seconds.”

Seven years passed since Hamilton’s first championship-winning season, Formula One is considered to be in decline, but Mercedes’ British driver is the number one personality in the business, according to British followers of sports scores. Without him, the stands of the former military airport probably wouldn’t be packed this weekend, but he is a guarantee for high spectator numbers.

The Telegraph: Lewis Hamilton is fed up with the poor standard of trophies in Formula One

Lewis Hamilton has won so many trophies in his Formula One career that he became an expert on the quality of the awards. No joke, and it wasn’t posted on a brand new gambling blog started by Hamilton either, this is really about those pieces the drivers get on the podium.
Hamilton prefers gold, though it turned out that he will be racing at Silverstone for another plastic bauble this weekend, after online gambling news revealed the trophy of this year’s British Grand Prix. Hamilton revealed that he was so annoyed by its cheapness that he took the point to Bernie Ecclestone, the owner of the commercial rights of F1.

Hamilton said, “We just need to make better trophies – it’s shocking how bad the trophies are.The trophies are as good as… at go kart level, it was really bad.” He went on to add, “Formula Renault was just little boxes with a car in the middle. Formula Three was good, and at the beginning of my Formula One career the trophies were really good. But now they are just terrible man. They are so bad. I told Bernie and he got the trophy guy in the room and I just said, ‘you know’.”

BBC.com: Nic Hamilton: From computer games with Lewis to racing history

While Lewis Hamilton was on the racing track all the time to pursue his dreams about becoming a Formula One world champion, his younger brother, Nic, who has cerebral palsy, spent virtually three years in his bedroom to do something similar in the virtual world.

Nic Hamilton became so good at computer racing games, that after a while Lewis didn’t have any chance against him, though the latter had the occasion to try a few professional simulators during his career.

Though Nic’s condition makes it difficult to walk and also causes pain for him and tied him to a wheelchair for the majority of his childhood, he was so good at simulators, that he had the opportunity to become a real racing driver.

At 23 he became the first disabled driver in the history of the British Touring Car Championship last weekend, gambling news report. “I became UK online champion in 2009”, he expressed “And it got to a point that when I was playing against Lewis I was always faster than him.”

He added, “Some people might call it sad, but for me it was a form of motorsport and actually the thing that started my whole career. That’s how it became real – basically it was his idea saying: ‘You need to get in a real car.”

Formula One returns to Europe after a trip to Canada, where Williams driver Valtteri Bottas was able to finish in front of the two Ferraris, though it was reported before the race that the Italian outfit brought an updated and more powerful engine to Montreal. Felipe Massa thinks that their Mercedes-powered car has the potential to fight for a podium finish again, while Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne revealed that he thought that four-time world championship winner Sebastian Vettel was the best choice for Ferrari. Now there is a Le Mans winner amongst the active drivers, as Nico Hulkenberg was able to pull out a victory in France last weekend in a Porsche.

Marchionne expressed that now they have the best man for the job, gambling news report. He said, “He is a complete driver. It is one of those things that is very difficult to find, he understands the car really well, and his execution style is beyond reproach.”

Marchionne also stated that he believes Vettel belongs to a delicate group of world champions. He added, “We are lucky to have him; my only objective is to give him the car that can make him win. That is it. The rest he needs to do and he can.”

 

Autosport.com: Williams F1 team aims to pressure Ferrari with Austrian GP upgrade

 

According to sports scores news, Williams driver Felipe Massa thinks that the Grove-based outfit can put some pressure on the Ferraris at the Austrian Grand Prix this weekend. His teammate, Valtteri Bottas was able to beat the Scuderia’s two cars in the last race in Montreal, however the Ferrari factory provided some key engine updates before the event in Canada.

Massa expressed that the Mercedes powered Williams cars have the potential to top the Ferraris once again. He said, “Looking at the upgrades on the [Ferrari] engine the difference [to Mercedes] is still similar and I think it shows that we can still fight at the front.”

The Brazilian driver revealed that he doesn’t know when the Mercedes factory will perform some updates regarding their engine. He said, “I don’t know when Mercedes will put some upgrades on the engine maybe when they do we can get stronger in that area.”

 

BBC.com: Le Mans: Nico Hulkenberg wins Le Mans from Mark Webber

 

Nico Hulkenberg, who succeeded with Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber in a Porsche, is the first active driver in Formula One who was able to win Le Mans in 24 years. That was the 17th title for Porsche, which is a record in the history of the competition, online mobile news report.

The last time an active F1 driver won Le Mans was in 1991, when Johnny Herbert was part of the team that came first. After the race, Hulkenberg said, “I’m speechless right now, to be honest.” The 30-year-old Tandy was more communicative. He revealed, “I could retire from racing tomorrow and look back on today and I am sure I would be happy for the rest of my life.”

Verstappen Doesn’t Change His Approach After Crashing Grosjean

Jun 05, 2015

grosjean-verstappen-crash-monaco-06052015

17-year-old Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen made a mistake while chasing Romain Grosjean almost two weeks ago in Monte Carlo, ending the race of the Lotus employee, who was challenging for points. Some said that the Dutchman’s recklessness and his dangerous driving lead to the crash, while others suggested that it was a racing accident, and however it is tempting to blame the young driver’s lack of experience, this is not right. Almost every driver and expert agrees though that Verstappen should not say anything like that he said to Grosjean after the race.

 

Crash.net: F1 Canadian Grand Prix: Grosjean upset at lack of apology from Verstappen

 

Romain Grosjean expressed his disappointment over Max Verstappen “forgetting” to apologize after their crash in the last race in Monaco. The Dutchman was trying to get past the Lotus driver, who was on worn tyres, until the young Toro Rosso driver made a mistake and hit the Frenchman from behind.

The incident divided experts and followers of sports scores. Grosjean blamed the young and reckless Verstappen, while the 17-year-old Dutchman stated that the Frenchman brake-tested him. After the incident, Grosjean was out from the race, and however he was challenging for points, what really hurt him was that Verstappen did not offer an apology at all.

“It does [disappoint me] because we went to the stewards after the grand prix and I tapped him on the back, thinking he could say ‘I’m sorry’ but, instead, he said I brake-tested [him], which is completely wrong as I actually braked later than the lap before,” said Grosjean. “It is not the way I’d like things to happen.”

 

jamesallenonf1.com: Verstappen Won’t Change Racing Style as Massa Insists Teen Was ‘Completely Wrong’ In Monaco

 

Max Verstappen was criticized by Felipe Massa several times in the aftermath of the Monaco incident, when the young Dutchman hit Romain Grosjean from behind. However, the 17-year-old Toro Rosso driver stated before the Canadian Grand Prix, that he won’t alter his driving style, though being under fire from drivers, fans and followers of live sports results.

Massa expressed after the race in Monte Carlo that the dangerous Verstappen should be penalized after the accident, and he was duly handed a five-place grid penalty by the FIA, and he also got two penalty points to his Super License. He will serve the penalty in Montreal this weekend. Massa also said that the Dutchman braked too late before hitting Grosjean.

Verstappen responded to that statement in the press conference before the Canadian GP. “Everybody can have their opinion, that’s the first thing, but I looked at my data, I didn’t brake any later,” Verstappen revealed. “I had braked later in the race before that but on the lap I crashed, it was exactly the same lap as the lap before and I got my penalty.”

 

Autosport.com: Button warns Verstappen over Grosjean ‘braketest’ crash remarks

 

Jenson Button, world champion of 2009, expressed that he was astonished by Max Verstappen saying Romain Grosjean braketested him when the Toro Rosso driver hit the Frenchman in Monaco nearly a fortnight ago. Button said that Verstappen should think twice before he speaks to the media, according to gambling news.

Button revealed however that he didn’t think that the cause of the accident was Verstappen being inexperienced. The 35-year-old Mclaren driver had problems only with the Dutchman’s remarks to journalists, saying, “He’s obviously inexperienced, it’s easy to go and jump on the bandwagon with that.”

“I think, the thing is, you’ve got to be very careful with what you do say in the press,” he went on. “To point the finger at someone and say that they braketested you, that’s serious. I don’t think that happens in motorsport these days, we’re all grown-ups and we don’t do things like that in Formula 1,” added Button.

Still Hard to Take the Famous Corner of Monaco GP

May 21, 2015
Monaco Formula 1 track

Tricky track of Monaco

Before Formula One arrived in Monaco, where the most famous race of the series is held, some adjustments were made regarding the track. With moving the barriers in the turn at the Swimming Pool complex, the track might be safer, nevertheless it is still tough to manage according to former driver Vitantonio Liuzzi.

He also talked about the importance of not touching the walls and the barriers in this depressingly tight venue. If we have a look at the most spectacular overtaking moves of the last decades, we will see that if you would like to see the chequered flag, it could be helpful to avoid touching the moving features of the motorsport competition too.

Motorsport.com: Monaco’s new Swimming Pool apex “still a challenge”

The exit at the Swimming Pool complex at Monaco street circuit was refurbished for this year with the barriers moved inwards and a kerb installed instead, gambling news report. Theoretically, with the barrier removed from the apex, it is easier to take the corner now than it was before, however former Formula One drivers expressed that it is still tough to get it right.

Vitantonio Liuzzi recently drove in Monaco in the Formula E series. He said, “Yes it is definitely still a challenge there, even though it is a slightly different line and trajectory”. When discussing the corner, Liuzzi, who spent six seasons in the Formula One between 2005 and 2011, also explained the significance of avoiding the walls in Monaco these days.

He expressed, “I still think it is the toughest part of the circuit and you can gain quite a bit still and honestly touching the walls a lot at Monaco is a myth. You might do it a few times and get away with it but generally it is not worth the risk.” Apart from the changes at turns 15 and 16, several parts of the track have been resurfaced, and some adjustments have been made at Tabac.

Crash.net: Six of the Best: Overtakes at Monaco

The Monaco GP is recognized as the most precious one in the calendar because of the status and the glamour style of the Principality. However, the race itself can be quite boring many times, as it is virtually impossible to overtake in the streets of Monaco. For the bravest, is still possible though, but to perform a move like that, one have to be patient, expedient and skillful as well.
Like Michael Schumacher in 1998, who wrestled with Alexander Wurz from the Loews hairpin to the tunnel, however, as the Austrian was equally aggressive to his counterpart, the two touched several times. Though the German won the battle, he lost the war eventually as both of their cars damaged heavily, ruining their races respectively.

Nico Hulkenberg was luckier last year, exploiting a slight error made by Kevin Magnussen to get past him in the same section of the track, without banging his Force India dangerously against the McLaren. Kimi Raikkonen made a cleaner maneuver against Mark Webber in 2006, but it was delicate as the Finn overtook the Australian unexpectedly while climbing up the hill.
In 2013 Sergio Perez provided the show overtaking Jenson Button and forcing Fernando Alonso out of the track at the chicane a few laps later, after the Spaniard had to give the position back to the Mexican. Perez’s race ended soon however, when he hit Raikkonen at the same corner.

Equally remarkable was Nigel Mansell’s pass on Alain Prost in the tunnel in 1991 when battling for the second place. Those, who follow sports scores, might remember Schumacher infamously overtaking Fernando Alonso in 2010 after the safety car went in at the end of the last lap. However as that move went against the rules, Schuey was handed a time penalty after the race.

Rosberg Looks for Third Monaco Win in a Row

May 21, 2015
Rosberg Formula 1 pilot

Looking like winner

The Mercedes driver tries to close the gap on his teammate Lewis Hamilton in his home race.
After some days of testing in Barcelona, the Formula One outfits arrived in Monte Carlo, to take part in arguably the most famous racing event in the world. This could be a crucial venue for the Mercedes drivers striving for the championship. Rosberg emerged as the winner last year, completing back-to-back victories in his home race in Monaco.

That marked the start of a four-month-long period, when the German was leading the championship. Rosberg might hope another success would trigger something similar this year, however it won’t be easy for him to take the lead from his teammate in the Principality again, as Hamilton enjoys a confident, 20-point lead.

Crash.net: F1 Monaco Grand Prix: Rosberg eyeing Monaco victory hat-trick

Mercedes’s Nico Rosberg picked up his first victory of the year in Barcelona and now he prepares to win his third GP in a row in his home city. Keen followers of sports scores might remember that after the German driver came second in Monte Carlo in 2012, he won the event in 2013 and 2014, emerging as the Monaco specialist of the field.

With the German Grand Prix being cut from the calendar, this race will be Rosberg’s only true home GP this season, as he is a Monaco resident and was grown up in the Principality as well. After he edged closer to his teammate and biggest rival Lewis Hamilton with a win in Spain, he looks forward to continue closing the gap between them.

He said, “There’s still a long way to go this season so it’s all there to fight for, I’m just taking it race by race. Next we have Monaco – the most legendary, exciting and challenging event in the calendar. Throughout the whole weekend, the atmosphere is very, very special”.
Rosberg also emphasized the importance of the rare opportunity to stay in his place for the night before the race. “It’s a home race for me and it’s strange to just walk or take a scooter to the racetrack – but also very cool to sleep in your own bed each night“, he revealed.

Motorsport.com: Mercedes and Monaco: Is history set to repeat itself?

Nico Rosberg was accused of drawing yellow flags deliberately after last year’s qualifying session in Monaco, however he was found innocent by the stewards. Nevertheless he clearly benefited from the appearance of the warning signals as his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, had no opportunity to take the pole position after the other Mercedes ran wide in turn 5.

After the controversial qualification, Rosberg went on to win the race and reclaimed the lead in the championship, but he virtually started a war within the team that lasted until the end of the year. This season is a different story however, with Lewis Hamilton leading the field confidently from the opening weekend of the season, but tensions are still there between the two.

Though they are in different shape psychologically compared to their respective states twelve months ago, a victory in Monaco would be crucial again. After winning here last year, Rosberg held the lead in the championship until the Singapore GP in September, and the 29-year-old German now obviously plans to launch a similar streak.
Meanwhile Hamilton would place another strike on Rosberg, if he managed to win his teammate’s favourite race – the German won multiple races in Monaco only. At the end of the day this should be another showdown between the two, and the best could be even happier than the luckiest Monte Carlo casino winners.
