Penalties we NOT handed down Tuesday as we all originally thought, with the number 31 team at Richard Childress Racing and driver Ryan Newman. It was sort of strange from the beginning as Newman's team didn't really have a reason to cheat, but still got caught with an infraction. We'll talk about why the team wasn't handed a penalty, and how much of a relief this is for RCR.

Lewis Hamilton is the Formula One championship leader, but his teammate Nico Rosberg, did not let that stop him, from fighting for the championship until the final race, in Abu Dhabi.
Rosberg beat Hamilton by the slimmest of margins 0.033 seconds, and when they took the podium, Hamilton reached out his hand to his teammate, for a congratulatory handshake. This is the 10th pole for Rosberg and the best year of his career. Although teams do not get points for pole positions, Rosberg will be rewarded for his efforts when he receives the inaugural pole position trophy.
For race leader Lewis Hamilton, his use of intelligence and skill helped him win the Constructors Championship for Mercedes. It also helped him out-perform his teammate by winning 10-races this season. So for Hamilton, the fight for the championship continues until he crosses the finish line on November 23, 2014.
Interlagos has been on the race calendar since 1974 and it is the second shortest race of the season. The track was refurbished and appears to be rough on tires. According to Paul Hembrey with F1 tire supplier Pirelli, the track asphalt is oily, and if it rain, you don’t have to be an expert to know that oil and water do not mix.
Rounding out the top five in qualifying were, Williams-Martini Felipe Massa, who is Brazilian and looking for a win at home. Fourth was Massa’s teammate Valtteri Bottas, and fifth was McLaren driver Jensen Button, expected to depart Formula 1 at the end of the season.
Several drivers did better on the track today, than they have done most of the season. Perhaps it was to raise their standings before the end of the season, or, they may be afraid of being replaced by a younger driver, with the hunger they once had. Whatever the reasons, qualifying at the Brazilian Grand Prix has set the stage for what may be a dream, or a nightmare, for fans and driver.
Pole sitter Lewis Hamilton was a commanding presence, on the track today in Sochi during qualifying, at the Formula One Russian Grand Prix. He was two-tenths ahead of his teammate, Nico Rosberg who secured second.
The 53-lap street circuit with challenging twists and turns, on a purposefully built track, is in the heart of the beautiful Black Sea Resort in Sochi. The long straight before turn one is where Hamilton will likely battle with Rosberg to hold onto, first position. The other drivers also view the location as a great place to improve, their position during the race.
Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas was third. Bottas set the fastest first and second sectors on his final run, but started to struggled towards the end of the lap and lost the rear of the car in the last corner. As a result Bottas had to settle for third on the grid, with Jenson Button taking his best dry qualifying of the year in fourth.
Russian driver Daniil Kvyat for Toro Rosso, was excited to race at his home circuit. He made an impressive showing by securing 5th position, the best qualifying result of his career.
Disappointed, was Daniel Ricciardo in 7th who had a bit of a problem with the grip, of the new track stating, “It was hard to read the grip.” His Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel in eleventh position was not satisfied with the rear of the car while taking corners. He said, “The car felt nervous”.
Force India continues to work hard for points. Team Principal Vijay Mallya said “the penalty against Nico Hulkenberg was unfortunate and strategy options will be limited on a track where overtaking appears difficult.” At the end of the day, the teams learned quite a bit from qualifying on the new track.
Just when Nico Rosberg thought he would be pole sitter for the Formula One Grand Prix in Singapore, his team-mate Lewis Hamilton pulls the rug out in Q3 by seven one-thousandth of a second. Red Bull Daniel Ricciardo was 3rd, his team-mate Sebastian Vettel 4th, and Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso was 5th. This was the sixth pole position of the 2014 season for Hamilton and a much needed one, for a track like Singapore. Sundays race in Singapore will be the first test of the new radio rules.

Lewis Hamilton had a remarkable day on the home turf of the Ferrari, Formula One team. The pressure of racing at one of the most popular circuits in F1 did not prevent him from making pole position. Hamilton was fast, smart, and steady on the track, during the qualifying session at Monza. The Mercedes AMG driver and 2008 World Champion beat his teammate Nico Rosberg by half a second. While some who seem to focus on Hamilton not making pole position since May, they seem to forget that Hamilton won the British Grand Prix in June from sixth position. Winning pole position is a great and preferable accomplishment and should not be discounted. However, it is far more compelling and exciting to fans and viewers, when a brilliant driver like Hamilton can win from sixth position, or, as he did in Hungary, go from pit lane to a 3rd place podium finish. Not many drivers can accomplish such a task up against a field of so many champions, as Lewis Hamilton did. So the fact that he has not been a pole sitter since May does not diminish his brilliance, on the track.
The top six cars during qualifying were powered by Mercedes engines with the Mercedes team of Hamilton and Rosberg, locking up the front row. Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa with Williams-Martini locked out the second, while Button and Magnussen with McLaren, will be on third.
Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso has never been one to give up, even when starting in seventh position, at a home race, with the big bosses in attendance. Although teammate Kimi Raikkonen did not qualify in the top ten, both drivers are hoping to give the fans something to cheer about on race-day.
Don’t forget to pick up your tickets for the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas at Circuit of the Americas on Oct 29-31.

An almost predictable line-up will be on track for race-day on Sunday, at the Grand Prix in Belgium. The track was wet, dry, then wet, and the cars were slipping, skidding, sliding, and in Pastor Maldonado’s case, crashing. But all in all, the teams and drivers already on top continued to dominate. Pole sitter for Sunday’s race will be Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg. Right behind Rosberg will be fellow teammate, Lewis Hamilton. The 2013 champion Sebastian Vettel qualified third, while his Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo, was comfortable in fifth.
