From second row to double podium finish

Scuderia Ferrari probably got the most they could out of a difficult Sunday at Hungaroring with Sebastian Vettel finishing second and Kimi Raikkonen third. However, there has to be a question mark about what might have been if no hesitation at the pit stop or if it hadn’t rained on Saturday afternoon. Despite all this, the SF71H continues to show its strength and anticipates an interesting second part of the season after the summer break. Raikkonen started the Hungarian GP from third on the Ultrasoft […]

Germany gave Ferrari a cold shower

A possible win for Ferrari at the German GP became an open wound as Sebastian Vettel retired from lead on lap 51 after making a mistake in the rain at turn 13. The Italian squad left Hockenheim with only 15 points, courtesy of Kimi Raikkonen's third place finish. Vettel started the race from pole and, having been the only driver to score points in every race so far this season, suffered his first retirement of the season. Both cars got away well at start, with the […]

Vettel:

Sebastian Vettel’s fourth place was the sole reward for Scuderia Ferrari after an uphill battle at the Spanish Grand Prix. Kimi Raikkonen was forced to retire after a loss of power. At the getaway Vettel went straight on the attack from third place on the grid and passed Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas, while Raikkonen stayed in fourth place. The safety car came out on lap 1 when Grosjean spun off and triggered a string of collisions. The race restarted at the end of the sixth lap in […]

The best man won, says beaten Vettel

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel congratulated Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton on joining him as a four times Formula One world champion on Sunday and vowed that next season would be different. “I‘m down, obviously,” said the German, who won his titles with Red Bull, after his already extremely slim hopes were finally extinguished at the Mexican Grand Prix. “It’s tough to cross the line and realise that you’re not in the fight anymore. That sums it up ... It’s Lewis’s day. He was crowned world champion and […]

Vettel:

Sebastian Vettel was robbed of any chance to fight for a victory in Japan when a spark plug on one cylinder failed. The German driver started the race on the right side alongside Lewis Hamilton and got off the line well, but not well enough to take the lead. His car was already showing a problem with the ignition as he lost one place on the opening lap. As Vettel dropped on sixth and continued to loose ground, he was called back into the pits […]

Vettel victorious at Hungaroring

Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel expands his championship lead after winning the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday over team mate Kimi Raikkonen. The four-time Formula One champion won the race from the pole, leading all 70 laps to secure his 46th career Formula One victory, his fourth of the season and his second at the Hungaroring. The triumph also gave Vettel some breathing room in the championship. Vettel came into Hungary with only a one-point lead over his nearest pursuer, Lewis Hamilton, but leaves with a 14-point […]

Did Ferrari favoured Vettel over Raikkonen?

Looking back over the last few years’ Monaco Grands Prix, a pattern emerges, where a strategy call has decided the outcome and some controversial decisions have been at the heart of it. Last year was Red Bull’s misstep on Ricciardo’s strategy and then an error in the pit stop itself, in 2015 Lewis Hamilton lost the race on a bad strategy call, in 2014 he was angry because Mercedes stopped both cars on the same lap behind the Safety Car, giving him no chance to […]

Hamilton's victory, an open goal from Ferrari

This was one of the best races from a race strategy point of view for years. Like last year’s Spanish Grand Prix, strategy decided the outcome, but the two main protagonists, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel also surpassed themselves, with heroic drives, making it a truly memorable race. Here we will analyse the momentous decisions that dictated the outcome, at how the pendulum swung from one driver to another several times. And we will also look at how the lowly Sauber team managed to score its […]
