A Review of the Abu Dhabi GP by Pedro Cunha

At the age of 31 and in his 11th season as an F1 driver, Nico Rosberg is finally world champion achieving a rare feat: following in the footsteps of his father Keke, who had won the title in 1982. Previously, only the Hills had accomplished this (Graham in 1962 and 1968 and Damon in 1996). […]

A Review of the Brazilian GP by Pedro Cunha

We must wait until the Abu Dhabi GP to know who´s going to be the next F1 Champion. The Brazilian GP was probably the weirdest of the current season: The start was delayed 10 minutes (after Grosjean´s crash during the installation lap) and the conclusion occurred more than 3 hours after the start. Dreadful weather […]

A Review of the Japanese GP by Pedro Cunha

Pole number 30 for Rosberg in Japan. Hamilton showed some strange behaviour during Thursday’s and Saturday’s press conferences: On Thursday he spent his time taking pictures of himself and other drivers on snapchat, posting images of himself and Sainz with bunny faces… On Saturday he walked out of the press conference without answering a single […]

Night race in Singapore, pole 29 for Rosberg in what was his 200th race and 22nd victory of his career which allowed him to return to the lead of the championship, but with a lot of drama. With 11 laps to go the German was about 22 seconds ahead of Ricciardo, but a different pit […]

A review of the Italian GP by Pedro Cunha

It was another pole for Hamilton in Italy (The 3rd in a row – and his 5th in Monza, equaling Fangio and Senna). Hamilton had a bad start (he dropped to 6th place), while Rosberg claimed position one. But a perfect pit strategy (only one stop) allowed Mercedes to get their 4th “one-two” of the […]

At home (in Germany) Rosberg claimed the 27th pole of his career and the 5th of the current season, but it was not a race to remember.
