Mercedes AMG driver Lewis Hamilton just won the Italian Grand Prix at the home of Ferrari. The 2008 World Champion was in pole position but got off to a bad start due to car trouble. His teammate Nico Rosberg took the lead pushing Hamilton back, and into fourth position. Pressure started to take its toll on Rosberg and he made two mistakes, the second of which proved to be an opportunity for the faster Hamilton to move back into first position. Once Hamilton regained the lead, he kept it throughout the race. Hamilton's teammate Nico Rosberg came in second and Williams-Martini driver and former Ferrari driver Felipe Massa, crossed the finish line third. The disappointment of Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso's DNF did not prevent the fans from showing their love of the Ferrari F1 team. The Ferrari organization was out in full force along with the Ferrari family. The Mercedes Team is currently in the lead for the constructors’ title, and with six more races before the end of the season, it looks as though Mercedes will maintain that position. The Italian fans were gracious, excited, and seemed to emjoy the event. The after race entertainment was, the still popular musical group, Duran Duran.
The Formula One Grand Prix at Spa, in Belgium, was jam-packed with excitement, tenacity, and some have said, “dirty tricks.” Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo drove a spectacular race all the way through the finish line. He started the race in 5th position then used speed and precision to overtake Mercedes driver and pole sitter Nico Rosberg. Once Ricciardo moved into first position he stayed there. He defended his position and held on for a back-to-back win, making this his third of the season.
Boos, Boos and more Boos for Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg today. Fans and race viewers watched as he appeared to deliberately make contact with teammate Lewis Hamilton just enough to damage Hamilton’s tires, and derail any opportunity Hamilton had, to earn points. Rosberg is in the lead for the driver championship and Hamilton, the 2008 World Champion was his biggest threat with an 11-point gap. Hamilton did not finish the race today due to damage to the car while Rosberg went on to finish second. Finishing third was the always friendly and reliable Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas. Bottas really put the Williams-Martini team in a respectable position for championship points, which means millions to a team. Valtteri has become a very reliable driver with enough confidence, to duke it out on the track, for team points.
Xiro Xone F1 Sports Award for Guts goes to McLaren rookie Kevin Magnussen who fought to keep his position against Alonso.
The Stop stressing me out award goes to, Sebastian Vettel, the 4-time champion with Red Bull. He made the podium on qualifying day, but missed it on race-day. Vettel has done a much better job with the car of late, and could have landed on the podium had it not been for a couple of hiccups, on the track. Now that he is more acquainted with the car we can expect to see him on the podium quite a bit more, next season.
Another win for the smiling man at Red Bull, Daniel Ricciardo. He is proving to be well worth the efforts of Red Bull's decision to bump him up from Toro Rosso to a seat on the team with four-time champion Sebastian Vettel. Ricciardo seems to make winning easy, or perhaps its the fact that he is having so much fun on the track that he does not let fans see him sweat. Standing second on the podium was Fernando Alonso with the Ferrari team. And In what has to be the most spectacular racing comeback of the season, Lewis Hamilton went from pit to podium in Budepest Hungary. The brilliant brit who won the world championship in 2008 as a McLaren driver, showed the world what a true professional can do out on the track even when starting in the pit. After being plagued with several mechanical problems this season, including qualifying, when his car mysteriously caught fire, Hamilton manage to land on the podium with a 3rd place finish.
The heart and soul of the British Grand Prix was Lewis Hamilton. The 2008 champion driver for the Mercedes AMG team showed true grit, as he raced 57 laps to take the win at the, Formula One British Grand Prix.
Hamilton, who was 6th place on the starting grid quickly moved into 4th when, Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen hit a wall at 150mph causing a delay in the race. Raikkonen was okay, but exited the car with some assistance and a limp.
Once the race continued Hamilton set the fastest laps on the track moving into second place but still 5 seconds behind teammate, Nico Rosberg. Hamilton closed the 5-second gap and was on the tail of Rosberg whose radio transmission to the garage revealed a gearbox problem, just as Hamilton was taking the lead.
Lewis Hamilton showed true grit, tenacity, and the skill of a champion when he took the lead and kept it, then comfortably cruised across the finish line to win his home race, at the Formula One Grand Prix in Britain.
Williams-Martini driver Valtteri Bottas was a very impressive second, and Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo came in third. Lewis Hamilton may have missed getting pole position, but he did not miss winning the Formula One British Grand Prix.

Thanks to the skillful driving of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, the Mercedes AMG team is 161 points ahead of their closest rival Red Bull. German driver Nico Rosberg has become a netter driver since Lewis Hamilton started sharing his data with him, something his former team-mate and 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher did not, do. They may be friendly competitors on the track but they are the epitome of a good team. Rosberg and Hamilton’s efforts to score points for the team have been very successful all season because points, translate into revenue.
A welcomed surprise was Marussia driver Jules Bianchi who got the first ever points for the team this season, placing them 9th in the Constructors. They gained entry into Formula One in 2009 and have been a hard working team struggling to gain Constructor points.
