2015 Formula One Mid-season summary

July 14, 2015 Leave a comment

We are back and yes it is been a while with no postings here; hopefully we can make up some time by posting a mid-season summary here as per our friends at F1 Teammate Challenge ahead of 2015 British Grand Prix

Mercedes AMG Petronas F1
Lewis Hamilton has had the upper hand on pole positions; 7 poles to his name versus only 1 pole by Nico Rosberg. Same goes for the number of wins; with Rosberg getting his last win right (Austria) and 2 consecutive race wins (Spain and Monaco). But Lewis Hamilton has been most consistent here; beating his teammate 5 times in 8 races and leading the points game by 10.

Scuderia Ferrari
Definitely Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari are the surprise contenders this 2015. The German champion has beat Raikkonen on all fronts (qualification, race results and points). Only in Canada Raikkonen qualified better but that was due to a technical problem in Vettel’s car. When it comes to racing only in Bahrain and Canada Raikkonen ended up better than Vettel. Most points = Vettel.

One caveat for the 2015: The Ferrari F1 car looks amazing this year:

Yes! We have now seven winners with Lewis Hamilton winning the Canadian Gran Prix… Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso lost their positions to Romain Grosjean and Sergio Perez who came back to the podium. Anyhow, I am running busy with other things but here I leave you with a graph progression of a very competitive F1 championship (cortesy of GrandPrixRankings):2012 F1 Championship Progression

Okay, we have six races… and for each race we have seen a different race winner. So who is really leading the championship? Well by points surprinsingly Ferrari Fernando Alonso is the undisputable leader… surprise! well Ferrari was not (at least in paper and qualifying) the most performing car out there…

Some of the favorites to lead the Championship were: McLaren, RedBull or Mercedes… but it did not work out in their way… Read more…
