That Is Why Rosberg Threw the Cap at Hamilton

Oct 27, 2015
Hamilton has now three F1 titles

Hamilton is the latest driver to defend his Formula One World Championship title

Lewis Hamilton clinched his third Formula One World Championship title in Austin on Sunday, however the race will be renown as the one when Rosberg threw the cap at Hamilton.Hurricane Patrica, one of the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded gave a hard time for Formula One drivers, teams and organizers during the weekend of the 2015 American Grand Prix. Qualifying was run on Sunday instead of Saturday and the intense rain only let two phases of the qualification to be completed.

After such troubles, the eventful race, that is a must in Austin, compensated the fans of Formula 1 and live sports results however. After a lot of position changes, overtaking maneuvers, incidents and several safety car spells on the drying Circuit of the Americas, in the final laps, Nico Rosberg was on his way to achieve his 12th Grand Prix victory the fourth this year.

However, the German driver made a mistake that costed him the leading position and eventually, the win. Thus his teammate, Lewis Hamilton was able to win the race and since his main rival, Sebastian Vettel finished third, Mercedes’ British driver clinched his third Formula One World Championship, matching the record of his idol, Ayrton Senna.

It is easy to understand how emotional was this win for Hamilton and the frustration of his teammate is also clear. After the race, in his joy, Hamilton threw the baseball cap for the second placed driver towards his teammate. That hurt the German’s feelings, and Rosberg threw the cap at Hamilton instantly.

 




 

After the event, Hamilton said that he understood the frustration of his teammate, while Rosberg defended himself emphasizing how big his frustration was after he thew away the victory in the end.

Though this will be the race that we will remember as the one when Rosberg threw the cap at Hamilton, this is also a historical one. By his 43rd GP victory, Hamilton joined three-time Formula One World Champions Jack Brabham, Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda, Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna. As experts of gambling facts know, after Stewart, he is the second British driver to collect three titles, and the first who was able to defend his championship.

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.”

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.

Action-Packed Year Expected in 2015 Formula 1 Season

Mar 10, 2015
F1 2015

Formula 1 2015 Adventure is about to begin!

Australian Grand Prix, the first race of the new Formula 1 season, will start next weekend on 15 March, in Melbourne. The new racing year is expected to be very exciting and intriguing with many great sportsmen behind the wheels who already have their fame, and many young pretenders wanting to take over their famous rivals.

The current champion, Lewis Hamilton, is said to be mentally stronger than ever before, and his team mate, last year’s second placed driver Nico Rosberg, is also looking for a way to prove himself better than everyone else. Meanwhile 4-time world champion Sebastian Vettel and 2-time world champion Fernando Alonso are also looking forward to revive their careers with their new teams.

NDTV Sports: Formula One Gearing up for Another Eventful Year of Rivalry

This year’s championship will see less racers and less teams as 24 drivers took part in the tournament in 2014 while only 18 are competing this year. Well, it might be 20 in case of Manor-Marrusia, the team that was built from Marrusia, will succeed to qualify for the requirements.

It is true that there will be less drivers compared to the previous season, however we can expect the same amount of excitement due to the quality of the competitors. Latest gambling news regard Lewis Hamilton as the favorite for winning the title having set the odds at 1.53 (8/15) by Bet365, while those for his teammate Nico Rosberg are set at 3.50 (5/2).

The British, however, has many contenders, such as Sebastian Vettel who will start the new season at Ferrari or Fernando Alonso who left the Reds for McLaren Honda. So Vettel, Hamilton and Alonso are looking to claim their fifth and third championship title respectively but they have many young contenders.

The new season comes with many new names and most of these are incredibly young drivers. Toro Rosso launches young pairing with a combined age of only 37, while 20-year-old Russian Daniil Kvyat will race as teammate of emerging star Daniel Ricciardo at Red Bull. Sauber will also trust the young with their drivers being 22 year-old Brazilian Felipe Nasr and 24 year-old Swedish diver, Marcus Ericsson.

Eurosport: Formula 1 – Lewis Hamilton arrives in Australia in style and ‘stronger than ever’

Lewis Hamilton seemed to be very confident when arriving to Melbourne and stepping out of his red private plane. He tweeted a picture of himself saying „Australia, we are here!“ to which he received mixed responses from his followers.

Online gambling news quoted what he thinks about his mental strength after being asked about the rumours of his berak-up with Nicole Scherzinger. ” I think last year, I adapted… a mental attitude that was kind of, I would like to say, impenetrable In the previous years it has been the case where personal issues have affected my life in general but I feel that I still carry that kind of mentality from last year.“

The Englishman also talked about his wish to achieve even better results than he did during the previous season. “It’s not easy to better a season like last year. In terms of performance, it was the best year that I think I’ve ever had, but it doesn’t mean I can’t beat it so that’s what I’m trying to do.”

Lewis Hamilton also declared that his negotiations with Mercedes about renewing his contract are at the final stage and they are close to reaching an agreement. “Hopefully we’re in the final stages. I don’t really know what the timeline is for that but we’re not rushing. but we’re very much in the last stages of it. So for the foreseeable future, I’m committed to this team.”

NDTV Sports: Mercedes Won’t End Hamilton-Rosberg Rivalry: Wolff

Even though the fact that Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were already teammates in the previous season, they were each other’s greatest competitors as well. Last year, on the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa the two drivers collided when the German was trying to overcome his partner.

The team has blamed Rosberg who was given an unknown punishment after the incident and he also apologised publicly for his dangerous maneuvers. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff claims that the collision between the two drivers was good for the sport but they had crossed a certain line.

Executive director of Mercedes AMG Petrol also added, “We are not going to change our approach in terms of philosophy on how to let the drivers race. Even if it is not always easy. For us, for our brand, for Formula One, it was important to let them fight, one against the other.”

According to gambling news, Wolff also stated that emotion is very important in sports, and even though the two pilots went over-board, the team found a good solution. He proved his word by saying that his team has won the following 5 races after the accident.

The executive also said that Formula 1 is the number 1 car racing sport in the world so people who work for Formula 1 should stop talking negatively about the game. “We are the number one auto racing sport in the world and we must promote and support this image.”

The week in pictures: November 4th – November 10th, 2014

Nov 12, 2014

Weekly news in pictures

We saw some big stories breaking throughout last week and so lets take a look back at some of those that hit the headlines

In Berlin Germans celebrated the end of the cold war and the collapse of the Berlin Wall that for so long divided their city. Built by the communist authorities in 1961 to stop people fleeing to the west it collapsed in 1989 in triumphant scenes flashed around the world. To celebrate events were held across the city with 8,000 white balloons released along the length of the wall, only a few miles of which remains, to remember the numerous people who died trying to escape the east during the cold war. The Brandenburg Gate saw the biggest party with Peter Gabriel playing David Bowie’s “Heroes” to a massive crowd.

Massive crowds were not in evidence during the US midterm elections on Tuesday where a scant 36.5% of the voting public bothered to actually vote. This coupled with the Republican stoked unpopularity of President Obama saw the Democratic Party take a decisive beating at the ballot box. As the results rolled in it became apparent there was a lot of work to do before 2016 if they wish to retain the White House. Republicans celebrated their victory and new control over the Senate but insisted they would be working with the President in the final two years of his presidency, a sentiment echoed by Obama. And if you believe that…

Talking of unbelievable the new head of GCHQ, the British equivalent of the NSA, Robert Hannigan has called on tech giants to cooperate more closely with the intelligence services in the fight against extremists and terrorism. Apparently our all having social media sites and the ability to encrypt our communications is making his job a little bit too difficult, which is ironic since most of us only started using encryption after we found out Mr. Hannigan and his friends were listening in on everything we said online. In an almost pleading article for the Financial Times he called for a “mature debate” on privacy, security and civil liberties. Yeah. Good luck with that, Bob.

In sports the Formula 1 drivers championship was still neck and neck as Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton went into the Brazilian Grand Prix. In an action packed race that saw Hamilton spin off at one point, the two Mercedes drivers romped home in first and second place with the German Rosberg winning cutting Hamilton’s championship lead to just 17 points with 50 available in the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi. Who’ll win that and take the season? Find out in our daily news pages but before you do that check out the stories that hit our headlines last week.

1. Apparently, the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino is so profitable that two rival groups of the tribe who owns it are fighting over it with guns and firearms, just like in the Wild West.

2. Macau is in big trouble. With VIP customers avoiding the gambling hub due to China’s crackdown on corruption, the city’s casinos are posting huge drops in profit.

3. After pumping millions into their pro-casino campaign and dangling thousands of jobs in front of Massachusetts voters, Wynn, MGM and Penn National finally got what they wanted: the majority vote allowing them to move ahead with projects in the state.

4. As if making online operators pay extra to gain access to British players wasn’t enough, the UK Gambling Commission has also put restrictions on sports sponsorships.

5. Marriage is hard and David and Sam Mackie know it only too well. In two and a half years of marriage, they didn’t even get a chance to go on a honeymoon! Well luck was on their side last week, when they won a trip to Australia and GBP1 million.

6. After Macau, it is now Singapore’s turn to bleed because of China’s crackdown on corruption, which has chased away VIP customers. While gambling news talk aboutpainful losses in casino revenues, no one is bothering to figure out what these high-rollers are actually hiding from.

7. Reports suggested that British driver Lewis Hamilton could potentially suffer a similar fate at the Interlagos circuit as in previous years.

Meanwhile Swedish scientists have shown human stem cells can be used to treat the effects of Parkinson’s Disease with a study displaying an alleviation or reversal of the brain damaged caused. Hailed as a break-through this test on rats may lead to clinical trials on humans by 2017, and last week the drummer from AC/DC was charged with attempting to arrange a murder amongst other things, and whilst those charges were dropped he still faces up to seven years for making threats to kill, a charge his lawyer says will be contested, will he get off? Find out in our daily news pages.

Slight underdog Hamilton outlasts Webber, takes Belgian Grand Prix, no. 1 in standings

Aug 31, 2010
Lewis Hamilton wins 2010 Belgian Grand Prix

That’s how this Formula One Drivers’ Championship is going: Another race, another leader, another bunch of storylines. Lewis Hamilton blew past Mark Webber early in the Belgian Grand Prix and hung on to take an easy win. With Hamilton’s victory came his new no. 1 standing on the table, three points ahead of Webber, as his McLaren team completed a two-race comeback.

“This last push in the championship couldn’t have started better for me,” Hamilton stated on the official Formula One website. “This victory was the perfect way to bounce back from Hungary.”

Webber won pole position for the first time in six races and snapped Sebastian Vettel’s four-race streak at the position; however, it did him little good, as he found himself in sixth place going into the first turn. Hamilton had claimed the lead by the end of the second lap, which was followed shortly thereafter by a downpour and the safety car’s appearance.

Still on something of a dangerous track, Vettel collided with Jenson Button in the 16th lap to take the latter out of the race and Vettel out of contention for good.

Hamilton increased his lead when race resumed but his teammate Jenson Button’s championship aspirations suffered a setback when Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull hit him during lap 16.

Interestingly, Hamilton was considered the underdog at the sportsbooks among the big four going into the race at 5/1 odds, while Webber was third on most bookmaker’s tables at 4/1. Vettel was getting 9/4 odds in most shops, while Fernando Alonso, who was never in it in Belgium, had been the favorite.
