    Xiro Xone News F1 Sports: Russian Grand Prix Qualifying

    in News

    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.

    Xiro Xone F1 : Rosberg Wins Austrian Grand Prix At Red Bull Ring

    in News

    Race day may have started with Williams-Martini drivers Felipe Massa sitting on pole, and his teammate Valtteri Bottas second, but it was Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg who took it to the finish line and won the Austrian Grand Prix.. 


    Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg won his third Grand Prix of the season today, at the Formula One Grand Prix, in Austria.  Rosberg is ahead in points for the 2014 driver championship.  His teammate Lewis Hamilton has four wins under his belt and was his closest rival on the track, coming in second. This win gives Rosberg a 29 point lead over teammate Hamilton who is expected to win his home race in a couple of weeks during the British Grand Prix, at Silverstone. 


    Williams-Martini driver Valtteri Bottas delivered some valuable points for his team, crossing the finish line in third place.  This was the first time Bottas had been on the podium, and will most likely, will not be his last.  For the last 11-years, the Austrian Grand Prix was off the calendar until Austrian billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz owner of Red Bull Energy drink and the Red Bull team, made a deal to bring the race back to the beautiful, newly renovated, Red Bull Ring.


    Next race is at Silverstone, for The British Grand Prix.  Stay tuned to Xiro Xone F1 Sports.
