F1 – 2016 Japanese Grand Prix : Nico Rosberg tightens grip on title race with controlled victory at Suzuka

0

Nico Rosberg took a controlled  victory at Japanese Grand Prix to extend his lead over team-mate Lewis Hamilton to 33 points in the overall standings. Defending champion Hamilton’s race was compromised by a poor start while Rosberg, who started on pole, was never seriously threatened. Roseberg crossed the line 4.9 seconds clear of Red Bull‘s Max Verstappen, who fended off a late-charging Lewis Hamilton after the Briton recovered from a woeful start to finish third.

Rosberg now leads the world championship by 33 points with only 100 still available in the remaining four races.

Suzuka result has assured Mercedes of the constructors’ title for the third year in succession.

Formula 1 2016 – Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg wins maiden Singapore Grand Prix with half a seocond lead

0

Nico Rosberg took control of the F1 Drivers’ Championship standings as he sealed his eighth win of the 2016 season just half a second clear of Red Bull’s Daniel Riccirado. Lewis Hamilton finished third and took a hit on his lead in Drivers’ standings.
Demonstrating a superb drive, Nico Rosberg was able to hold off a late charge from Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo by just 0.4s and win 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix. With team mate Lewis Hamilton finishing third, Rosberg now heads the Championship standings by eight points.

His eighth victory of the season makes him the first non-champion to win in Singapore and puts him on 273 points, to Hamilton’s 265. The reigning champion was 7.5s behind Ricciardo, but crucially 2.1s ahead of Raikkonen.

An excellent run saw Sebastian Vettel climb from P22 to fifth and deservedly secure the Driver of the Day vote from fans. Verstappen drove another typically feisty race, with plentiful overtaking, as he passed McLaren’s Fernando Alonso in the final third to take sixth place. Behind the Spaniard, Sergio Perez was eighth for Force India and the final points positions were taken by Kvyat and Renault’s Kevin Magnussen respectively.

2016 Italian Grand Prix : Nico Rosberg wins Italian Grand Prix, closes title gap with Lewis Hamilton

0

Any hope of a 50th career win for Lewis Hamilton, and matching the great Juan Manuel Fangio’s record in Monza, was over after less than 50 yards and a fraction of a second when teammate Nico Rosberg drove to the flag to take his seventh victory of the season.

Nico Rosberg of Mercedes went from second on the grid to race winner at the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix at Monza. Rosberg edged out teammate Lewis Hamilton whose race was compromised by a poor start.

Finishing just behind the Mercedes drivers were the two Ferraris of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen, respectively. Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull overtook Valtteri Bottas of Williams in the final five laps to take fourth place, just outside the podium finishes.

Rosberg’s win means he closes the gap to championship leader to just two points, with Hamilton now on 250 points to his team-mate’s 248. In the Constructors’ title battle Mercedes extend their already massive lead at the top of the table to 208 points but Red Bull’s lead over Ferrari has been cut to 11 points.

Formula 1 German Grand Prix : Hamilton extends championship lead with controlled victory in Germany

0

Lewis Hamilton dominated the German Grand Prix from the beginning to extend his championship lead to 19 points over Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.
Hamilton’s victory was largely sealed at the start when, from second on the grid, he made a much better getaway than polesitter Rosberg.
Rosberg was penalised for forcing Red Bull‘s Max Verstappen off the track.
The German finished behind Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Verstappen after being unable to make up the lost time.

Formula 1 heads into annual summer break, returning for the Belgian Grand Prix on August 28 at Spa Francorchamps, where Hamilton dominated last year.
What becomes clear in the first 12 races so far is that Lewis Hamilton is in control of this season regardless of the mechanical problems that afflicted him in the opening races.

Hamilton now has 217 points to Rosberg’s 198 with Ricciardo keeping third place with 133 from Raikkonen on 122, Vettel on 120 and Verstappen on 115.

F1 2016 Hungarian Grand Prix : Hamilton takes championship lead at Hungary

0

Lewis Hamilton registered his fifth career Hungarian Grand Prix victory ahead of Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg to lead the Drivers’ Championship standings for the first time this season. The world champion controlled the race from the moment he passed Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg at the start and ended with a six-point advantage over of the German. Nico Rosberg finished second at the Hungaroring while Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo held Sebastian Vettel for third to join the podium.
Red Bull were able to push the Silver Arrows in the early stages, but their challenge faded and Ricciardo came home 25 seconds off the lead, with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel right on his tail. Vettel’s Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen drove well from 14th on the grid but collided with Verstappen’s Red Bull in a lively fight in the closing laps but was unable to pass the Dutchman.
