    Nico Rosberg Takes Win at Formula One Grand Prix in Austria

    in News

    In a dramatic start in turn one, Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg, got out in front of pole sitter Lewis Hamilton, and drove all the way to the finish line, at the Formula One Grand Prix, in Austria. It was a must win race for Rosberg, and in his mind, there was no doubt that he could win. Rosberg’s closest competition since the start of the season has been championship leader and teammate, Lewis Hamilton, followed by fellow German and four-time champion, Sebastian Vettel. Neither if the champions could catch Rosberg on the track or throw him off his game.

    In a desperate bid to win and stay in championship contention, Rosberg did not let anything faze him until the last few laps of the race when he was heard on team radio nervously telling his team he felt vibrations, and asking them to keep an eye on it. Rosberg’s lead was never in jeopardy as he drove a steady, and confident race.  This is Rosberg’s third win of the season, and closes the gap between him and Hamilton to, 10-points for the driver’s championship.

    Lewis Hamilton, in spite of a five-second penalty for crossing the white line going into the pit lane, held on to a second place win. All week long, Hamilton had been experiencing issues with the set-up of the car, but still managed to achieve pole.  Hamilton congratulated his teammate for the win and is looking forward to his home race at Silverstone, in Great Britain. 

    Surprisingly, Williams-Martini driver Felipe Massa was third on the podium, his first of the season, while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel came in fourth and Massa’s teammate at Williams, Valtteri Bottas was fifth. 

    Winning in Austria was very much connected to Rosberg’s sense of pride. The Austrian Grand Prix was as close to his birthplace of Germany, as he will get all season, and winning there, was important to him.

    Formula One Rock Star Lewis Hamilton Wins Grand Prix Du Canada

    in Sports

    Two-time record setting champion Lewis Hamilton won his fourth Formula One Grand Prix since the start of the season. Seven races in, Hamilton has turned in nothing short of excellent drives for the Mercedes AMG team giving them a comfortable lead towards their second, Team Constructors Championship.

    Crossing the finish line second was Nico Rosberg, to complete a Mercedes one-two, Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini third, Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel both with Ferrari fourth and fifth, respectively.  Vettel started in 18th because he received a red flag infraction grid penalty, but skillfully worked his way up to, fifth. Rounding out the action on the track and in the points were, sixth place Felipe Massa who started 15th, Lotus driver Pastor Maldonado in his best showing in the last two years coming in seventh, Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg, Red Bull Daniil Kvyat, and Frenchman Romain Grosjean who qualified fifth, finished tenth.

    Pole sitter, Lewis Hamilton, got off to a great start in the Formula One Grand Prix in Canada at, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a street circuit on the city's Ile Notre-Dame.  His Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg had to fight for second at the starting line with Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen trying to squeeze him out. Rosberg held his position and Raikkonen fell in behind Rosberg at third.

    It was a bad day for the McLaren team when exhaust problems ended the race for Fernando Alonso, and shortly thereafter, a drive thru penalty on Jenson Button lead to his early retirement.  Sauber’s Marcus Ericcson had a challenge for fourteenth with Max Verstappen finishing 15th and Sauber’s Felipe Nasr, was 16th.

    Stay tuned to Xiro Xone News and Sports.  Next Race, Austria.
