F1 Grand Prix Review: Hungarian Grand Prix

Qualifying 

The standard 2015 edition of qualifying followed in Hungary this weekend with Lewis Hamilton leading the Silver Arrows duo in a one-two result. Only this time, Nico Rosberg was left behind in smoke after Lewis punched a credit in the time sheets worth half a second. At a loss for words, the German could not understand where Lewis had found such good time.

Typically following the Deutsche works team, Sebastian followed in third. Behind, the unusual candidate of Daniel Ricciardo followed in fourth. His already tired Renault engine was thankful for the shorter characteristics of the Hungaroring.

The next row was filled with Finns.  Kimi Raikkonen led his fellow countryman to fifth. Valterri Bottas shortly behind the champ is the favorite to swipe Kimi’s 2016 seat at Ferrari.

The usual suspects filled the rest of the top 10 with Daniil Kvyat, Felipe Massa, a Lotus car and finally a Toro Rosso car.

Formula One Canadian Grand Prix Review

Canada Grand Prix Review

Coming off the back of a less than successful weekend in Monaco for Lewis Hamilton’s side of the garage, the Briton was eager to make amends for his dismal strategy in the principality. The Canadian Grand Prix is a favourite for most drivers in F1, and Lewis is definitely one of them. He took his maiden victory here, and the aggressive driving style that the track bares will be just one appendage in Lewis’s arsenal.
