Qualifying - Rosberg on pole as Hamilton crashes out19 Jul 2014 Nico Rosberg gave the home fans exactly what they wanted as he raced to pole position in Germany on Saturday afternoon, but Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton had another miserable qualifying session, crashing out in Q1 when his right-front brake disc failed entering the Sachskurve. Behind Rosberg, Williams claimed second and third with Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa, whilst McLaren’s Kevin Magnussen and Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo completed the top five. By the time Q1 got underway the track temperature was already way higher than the 47 degrees Celsius from FP3, nudging 55 and getting closer to the 58 seen in FP2. That made it almost certain that error-free, single-lap runs on the supersoft Pirellis were at a premium. Despite that, Rosberg, Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel, Lotus’s Pastor Maldonado and Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat all had off-track moments during the session. Of course, Hamilton’s accident was the big news of Q1, occur ...
Welcome to the Weekend Round-Up! Here, I will recap the biggest and best races of the weekend, hopefully every weekend! First to Formula One, and Nico Rosberg once again won the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix. The German driver also qualified on pole. This in itself was the subject of speculation and controversy since many believed that he intentionally out braked himself, bringing out yellow flags that stopped his teammate Lewis Hamilton, who finished second on race day, from challenging for the top grid slot. The German put in a lights to flag display of domination at the challenging street circuit, while others were halted by errors and attrition. A notable casualty was the reigning champion Sebastian Vettel, who lasted less than five laps before electrical woes halted his challenge. Kimi Raikkonen, Pastor Maldonado, Adrian Sutil and Kevin Magnussen, as well as many others, all retired or lost time during the race for various different reasons. One man to benefit from this was Jules Bianchi, who finishe ...
Lap 5 of the Monaco GP: Sergio Perez crashed on the first lap and stopped, while Pastor Maldonado has retired. Sebastian Vettel has had gearbox issues and is currently running in 20th position. While Mercedes team mates,(1st) Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton battle for the lead.

Free Practice 1 Lewis Hamilton set the pace in Friday's first practice in Spain while Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg were both hit with problems. On a morning when all 11 teams were testing updates for their cars, it didn't take long for the drivers to get down to business. Daniil Kvyat set the early benchmark time, a 1:37.986, before lowering that to a 1:36 and then heading back into the pits. After a few minutes of silence, the drivers headed back out, putting their extra set of hard Pirelli tyres to good use. Pastor Maldonado had a brief moment at the top of the timesheets before Fernando Alonso came through with a 1:29.874. Kevin Magnussen was second ahead of Jenson Button. However, when the two Mercedes drivers ventured out it was all change. Lewis Hamilton hit the front with a 1:28.028 while Nico Rosberg went second quickest, a tenth behind. Meanwhile there were problems at Red Bull Racing as Sebastian Vettel came to a stop out on track at the exit to Turn 5. He had completed just four laps at th ...
Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo recorded the fastest time in a wet and slippery final Chinese GP practice ahead of Felipe Massa's Williams. Romain Grosjean's Renault was third from Nico Hulkenberg (Force India), Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) and Pastor Maldonado (Lotus). Friday pacesetters Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso did not set a time. Qualifying starts 09h00 SA time.
Bahrain GP at Sakhir was a milestone for Formula 1, 900th GP, went well perfectly for Mercedes AMG PETRONAS as they clinched 1-2 podium finish. Lewis Hamilton took the lead from the beginning of the race from his teammate Nico Rosberg. He overtook Lewis Hamilton few times but could not hold his place while Lewis Hamilton defended and retook his position all the time. Other drivers were just fighting for P3 which kept switching from Williams F1 to Force India and the battle was won by Sergio Perez at the end. Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas seemed fine at the beginning of the race but didn't manage to stay ahead after their Pit Stops. Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo increased their position eventually in the race where at the end Daniel Ricciardo almost got Sergio Perez but finished after him. Nico Hulkenberg also looked promising for the fight for P3 but instead lost a place to Daniel Ricciardo. Jenson Button had his 250th GP unlucky as well as other McLaren driver Kevin Magnussen had the same issu ...
Bahrain F1 winner separated from second place by only 1.085s as the new era starts to show how competitive it could become. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton made it two in a row as he just about managed to hold off his teammate Nico Rosberg to take the win in the third F1 GP of the year held in Bahrain. Sergio Perez took his Force India to third to seal the final place on the podium. The race started with Hamilton managing to edge pole-sitter Rosberg into second on the race to the first corner. The pair then proceeded to have a knock-down drag out wheel to wheel race that must have had the Mercedes team wondering if it would end in disaster. By lap twelve Perez had managed to take third position with a superb move over Filipe Massa in his Williams as the Williams team continued to show they really should be taken seriously in the hunt for points this year. Hamilton held the lead until lap 17 when Rosberg got past for an instant but Hamilton had deliberately taken a wide line to allow the faster car through ...
(Race this afternoon at 16:00 CAT) Qualifying - Rosberg leads Mercedes front row lock-out in Bahrain Mercedes locked out the front row of the grid during a floodlit qualifying in Sakhir on Saturday, but in a reverse of the form seen during practice, it was Nico Rosberg who turned the tables on team mate Lewis Hamilton to grab pole position by nearly three-tenths of a second. In Q1, the pack was shuffled as Sauber led a late charge onto the softer Pirelli tyre and were followed by everyone bar the Mercedes and Daniel Ricciardo’s Red Bull. Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg ended up heading the times with 1m 34.874s from the similarly shod Williams of Valtteri Bottas on 1m 34.934s and the other Force India of Sergio Perez on 1m 34.998s. Down the back, it was very tight as McLaren’s Kevin Magnussen leapt from 19th to seventh right at the end and Romain Grosjean bumped Lotus team mate Pastor Maldonado into the drop zone, with 1m 36.654s just trumping the Venezuelan’s 1m 36.663s. Sauber’s Adrian Sutil was ...
Qualifying - Hamilton snatches pole from Ricciardo in Australia At the end of a sensational first qualifying session for Formula One racing’s new 1.6-litre turbo era, Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton ruined a fairy tale for Red Bull, Daniel Ricciardo and Australia by snatching pole at a wet Albert Park on Saturday afternoon. The Briton’s gamble to stay on wet tyres enabled him to deny the intermediate-shod Ricciardo what would have been a sensational maiden pole position, and in doing so equal compatriot Nigel Mansell’s tally of 32 P1 starts. Rain was imminent when Q1 began, and soon after Ricciardo had displaced McLaren’s Kevin Magnussen for the fastest time with 1m 30.775s, rain spots quickly turned into a sharp downpour which sent everyone scurrying back to the pits and the Lotus of Pastor Maldonado off track three times on his out lap. Kamui Kobayashi had smacked in a lap of 1m 34.274s for Caterham, and that put him into Q2, leaving Marussia’s Max Chilton on 1m 34.293s - the quickest of those who fa ...
Nico Rosberg was top in the final practice session before qualifying at Melbourne today. His fastest run was 1.4 seconds quicker then next fastest, Jenson Button. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso was third fastest, whilst Lewis Hamilton's low fuel run was hampered by off-road trips. With Daniel Ricciardo fifth and Nico Hulkenberg sixth, there are five different cars in the top six. Sebastian Vettel came in early from his low fuel run following a conversation on his team radio where he described the car's handling as 'horrible'. His problems continued when Rocky announced on the radio that the new qualifying settings may have 'damaged the engine'. Kimi Raikkonen continued to struggle with his brakes throughout the session, whilst Lotus appeared to have just endured their most distressing practice to date after Pastor Maldonado stopped out on track and Romain Grosjean was heard yelling over the radio: "Nothing is solved!" Esteban Gutierrez and Valtteri Bottas both suffered gearbox failures and Pat Symonds said tha ...
Free Practice 2 is over for the Australian Grand Prix and Mercedes posted the two fastest times. Lewis Hamilton was 0.157 seconds faster than his teammate Nico Rosberg. Fernando Alonso was third for Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel fourth for Red Bull Racing, and Jenson Button fifth for McLaren. Caterham did not get either of its cars out again and the Lotus of Pastor Maldonado also did not run a lap. Romain Grosjean hit the wall doing damage to his Lotus' left rear suspension late in the session.

So the 2014 grid has been finally confirmed today. Caterham were the last team to announce their drivers. The full grid for the 2014 F1 Season is now = (In Brackets is there numbers): Red Bull: Sebastian Vettel (1/5*) & Daniel Ricciardo (3) Mercedes: Lewis Hamilton (44) & Nico Rosberg (6) Ferrari: Fernando Alonso (14) & Kimi Raikkonen (7) Lotus: Romain Grosjean (8) & Pastor Maldonado (13) McLaren: Jenson Button (22) & Kevin Magnussen (20) Force India: Nico Hulkenberg (27) & Sergio Perez (11) Sauber: Adrian Sutil (99) & Esteban Gutierrez (21) Toro Rosso: Jean-Eric Vergne (25) & Danill Kyvat (26) Williams: Felipe Massa (19) & Valtteri Bottas (77) Marussia: Jules Bianchi (17) & Max Chilton (4) Caterham: Kamui Kobayashi (TBA) & Marcus Ericsson (TBA) * = Sebastian Vettel does have 1 as he is the World Champion but if he isn't going into the 2015 Season, he will have
Drivers had to submit three choices to the FIA before Christmas. If two (or more) drivers chose the same number, the highest ranked in the championship took their first choice, whilst the second driver takes their second choice, and so on.   They could choose between 2 and 99. With the number 1 being reserved for the champion. In this case, Sebastian Vettel will have the choice between number 1 or his chosen permanent number of 5.   Number 13 - not normally used due to its association with poor luck - has been chosen by Lotus's Pastor Maldonado.   The list also includes Max Chilton as Marussia's second driver, even though the team have yet to publically announce his place, leaving Caterham as the only team to finalise their 2014 line-up.   Adrian Sutil chose the highest possible number, 99.   1* Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull 3 Daniel Ricciardo, Red Bull 44 Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes 6 Nico Rosberg, Mercedes 14 Fernando Alonso, Ferrari 7 Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari 8 Romain Grosjean, Lotus 13 Pastor M ...
F1 Breaking News: Following news that Kimi Raikkonen is to miss the last two races of the Formula 1 season due to ‘back problems’, several other drivers have revealed that they too will be sitting out the remainder of the year. Fernando Alonso gave the excuse that his back was ‘still a bit hurty’. Felipe Massa claimed that after signing for Williams he had accidentally ‘thrown away’ all his Ferrari overalls. Lewis Hamilton announced he was missing the last two races on account of having ‘no one to look after the dogs’ Nico Rosberg said he mistakenly thought Abu Dhabi was the last race of the year and had ‘booked a two week non-refundable holiday at Center Parcs’. Pastor Maldonado claimed his seat had got jammed too far toward after the team adjusted it ‘to let Massa have a go’ Sergio Perez will be unable to drive on account of ‘crying too much’. Mark Webber will not complete the season because he ‘just can’t be arsed’. In total, 20 of the current 22 drivers have elected n ...
Meanwhile both Pastor Maldonado and Lewis Hamilton have run wide at Turns 19 and 12 respectively.
Video: Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Pastor Maldonado all struggled in P1.
Les compartimos el resumen para los que se perdieron la carrera de hoy. Sebastian Vettel finally won his home Grand Prix with a finely judged drive under intense pressure from the Lotuses of Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean in Germany on Sunday afternoon. The Red Bull driver grabbed the lead at the start after out-dragging polesitter Lewis Hamilton and fending off fast-starting team mate Mark Webber into the Nurburgring’s first corner. The World Champion then controlled the pace as the first round of Pit Stops pushed Grosjean into a challenging position as the Frenchman ran a long opening stint for Lotus. Grosjean led laps nine to 13 after Vettel had made his first of three stops, and resumed the chase thereafter. But he lost his advantage over team mate Raikkonen after an almost comedic - but thankfully harmless - moment on the 24th lap. Jules Bianchi’s Marussia ground to a halt on the rise to the NGK chicane on the 22nd lap, momentarily catching fire, and two laps after the Frenchman had abandone ...
Lewis Hamilton passes both Paul Di Resta and Pastor Maldonado, with the latter immediately pitting.
But seriously Lewis Hamilton & Pastor Maldonado both say they "can't drive the car." Not what you want to hear ahead of qualifying.
Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg headed Ferrari's Fernando Alonso in first practice at the Monaco Grand Prix. The German was just 0.087 seconds quicker than Alonso, who was on target to beat Rosberg's time before aborting his lap when he encountered traffic. Lotus's Romain Grosjean was third from Ferrari's Felipe Massa and Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, 0.274secs off Rosberg. Williams's Pastor Maldonado was sixth, from Red Bull's Mark Webber and McLaren's Jenson Button. World Champion Sebastian Vettel was 10th in his Red Bull, behind McLaren's Sergio Perez, but ahead of Lotus's Kimi Raikkonen and Force India's Paul Di Resta. BBC 5 live analyst Allan McNish said the Red Bull drivers looked less comfortable out on the track than other leading contenders, with both Webber and Vettel struggling from locking brakes. "I don't see the Red Bulls hooked up at this stage of the weekend," the Scot said. BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Gary Anderson added that the Red Bulls' tyres were 'graining' - tearing on the surface - more than ...
Monaco resident Nico Rosberg ruled Thursday morning's opening free practice session on the streets of Monte Carlo, pipping Ferrari's Fernando Alonso by just 0.087s as one second covered the first eight cars. The German lapped his Mercedes in 1m 16.195s, which resisted the Spaniard's best effort of 1m 16.282s. Right at the end Romain Grosjean pushed himself up to third on 1m 16.380s for Lotus, deposing Ferrari's Felipe Massa (1m 16.394s) and Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton (1m 16.469s). The Brazilian caused a minor stir when he cut into the pits across the bows of Marussia's Max Chilton, while Hamilton had a moment when he ran wide at Ste Devote. The biggest incident befell Adrian Sutil, however, who spun his Force India through 270 degrees at the same corner. His rear wing brushed a barrier but he made it back to the pits for checks. Pastor Maldonado gave Williams' spirits a boost with the sixth-fastest time of 1m 16.993s on a track on which he always goes well, while 2010 and 2012 winner Mark Webber was Red Bul ...
The Mercedes duo of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton claimed a commanding one-two on the grid for tomorrow’s Formula 1 Gran Premio de España 2013 after a dramatic Q3 qualifying session in Barcelona on Saturday. The Silver Arrows pairing showed speed throughout qualifying as Hamilton had set the pace in Q1 from Rosberg. In 14th and 15th places the McLarens were perilously close to missing the Q2 cut, but the first man to do that was Valtteri Bottas, with 1m 23.260s for Williams. Team mate and last year’s winner Pastor Maldonado had no fairy story this time as he was 18th on 1m 23.318s. Behind them, Giedo van der Garde snatched back the honours for Caterham at the last moment with 1m 24.661s, just after Jules Bianchi (1m 24.713s) and Max Chilton (1m 24.996s) had put Marussia ahead. Charles Pic was the final runner in the second Caterham, on 1m 25.070s. As Hamilton again set the pace in Q2, the session brought embarrassment for his former team mate Jenson Button. The McLaren man wound up only 14th on 1m ...
Barcelona F1 test summary: Rosberg and Mercedes on top The new-look Mercedes squad gave itself huge cause for optimism at Barcelona by ending Formula 1's final pre-season test of 2013 on top of the timesheets. Team newcomer Lewis Hamilton - who claims to be loving life after leaving his former job in Woking for one in Brackley - set a blistering pace on Saturday, which was bettered by team-mate Nico Rosberg one day later. Rosberg's 1m20.130s lap was set on the soft tyre and left him 0.3s clear of Fernando Alonso's Ferrari. Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and others claimed that the Mercedes performance could not be taken as conclusive proof of its pace due to the uncertainty over what fuel load the F1 WO4 was running. Alonso's final-day time was good enough for second overall with Hamilton's Saturday pace securing him third, ahead of Felipe Massa and Jenson Button. While the long-run pace of both Sauber and Force India on Sunday was fractionally adrift of what Button's McLaren managed, both also showed g ...
Nico Rosberg helped to underline Mercedes competitiveness with a new fastest time of the week on the final day of pre-season testing, beating team-mate Lewis Hamilton's best effort by over 0.4s - news from Formula 1 F1
In every season, you have to have a favourite race right? Wrong. I simply cannot pick just the one race, so I decided to write my ‘top 5 races of the season’ instead. I also asked Formula 1 fans to tell me their favourite race too, which came out quite surprising, so keep reading to find out! 5. Spain – Catalunya5th race into the season, and what would be the 5th different winner in a row. Spain has always been a good track, it’s the 6th longest track, which lasts 66 laps. Kimi Raikkonen sets the lap record here, with a 1:21:670 in 2008. Which is pretty fast, considering the man on pole Pastor Maldonado only managed a 1:22:285. However, this was brilliant news for Williams, Lewis Hamilton was stripped of his pole position for insufficient fuel, and now Williams were on pole, for the first time in 2 years (Hulkenberg, Brazil 2010). In the race, pressure was on Maldonado to bring home the win, with Fernando Alonso right behind him. Another key moment was for Lewis Hamilton, starting 24th, and workin ...

Lewis Hamilton lost the lead to Jenson Button at the start of the race while Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado collided
In what has become his 6th pole position of the 2012 season and his 36th in 100 Grand Prix qualifying sessions, Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel lapped in a time of 1'35.657 in a car with a new front wing that arrived the night before to beat Lewis Hamilton in the McLaren MP4-27 and Mark Webber in the second RB8 to the top grid starting slot in the first Formula One Grand Prix at the $400 million Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The two Lotus E20's of Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen posted the fourth and fifth fastest time, though the Frenchman faces a five place grid penalty for a gearbox change while Michael Schumacher, in the sole Mercedes to get through to Q3, ended the qualifying hour by setting the sixth best lap time. Brazilian Felipe Massa consistently outpaced his struggling team-mate Fernando Alonso all weekend with the Scuderia Ferrari F2012's in seventh and ninth split by the Force India of Nico Hulkenberg. The Williams of Pastor Maldonado completed the top ten, over two seconds ...

• F1 Abu Dhabi GP 2012: Raikkonen Wins Thriller, Vettel Third Lotus' Kimi Raikkonen won a pulsating Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with Fernando Alonso of Ferrari taking second and Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull finishing third in a remarkable performance, after starting the race from the pit lane. The win marks Raikkonen's first triumph after his return to Formula One after a two-year break. It is also the Finn's first victory since the 2009 Belgian GP. Team Lotus made its first appearance on the top of the podium, since F1 legend Ayrton Senna's victory in the 1987 USA GP. Meanwhile, Vettel, looking to become the youngest ever triple champion in F1 history, now leads the drivers' championship standings by 10 points from Alonso, with just two races remaining in the season. Red Bull were unable to seal the constructors' title, after Mark Webber went out of the race following a collision involving Lotus' Romain Grosjean and Sauber's Sergio Perez. McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, who took pole position in Saturday's qualify ...
It took the form of McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton to derail Red Bull from taking another pole position in the 2012 F1 Abu Dhabi GP. The 2008 World Champion was in a class of his own and only Mark Webber got close to post the 2nd fastest time in Q3. Championship leader Sebastian Vettel will surely be disappointed to start the race in the pit lane after his team was unable to produce the required amount of fuel sample after qualifying. Vettel who set the 3rd fastest time in Q3 was instructed to stop his car on the track before the end of Q3 due to engine fuel system error feedback by Renault engineers. Despite poor qualifying pace Ferrari has been given a lifeline given Vettel’s disadvantage. Fernando Alonso will start the race in 6th position after Vettel has served his penalty. The 2-time World Champion will grab this opportunity with both hands and try to cut the 13-point deficit between Vettel and himself. A podium will require the Spaniard to overtake William’s Pastor Maldonado (3rd), Lotus’ Kimi Ra ...
Formula 1 Funs: look up that. Vodafone Mc Lauren Mercedes qualifying by Lewis Hamilton the first position on Dubai Prix. The team is the second oldest active team (after Ferrari) and one of the most successful teams in Formula One. Therefore Ferrari by Fernando Alonso, it got to be a big effort if we want to get the first position on the podium tomorrow at the end. As you can read I am Ferrari Fun!!! However, my sister in law Margie Margarita made a positive comment about Pastor Maldonado by qualifying the fourth pole position for Williams-Renault team today. I would add that Maldonado as the first ever Formula One victory by a Venezuelan driver who got the Formula 1 Grand Prix Santander-Spain, Barcelona last May 13 2012. It seems a very aggressive pilot who contributed for his team's first victory since 2004 Brazilian Grand Prix. Not bad of all for a Latin America young fellow who took over the Spain Laps 46-66
The Red Bulls are on fire in the 2012 F1 Indian GP as reigning World Champion Sebastian Vettel led teammate Mark Webber in their team’s third successive front-row lockout in qualifying yesterday! The McLarens of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button were unable to stop the Red Bulls but a second-row lockout is a great way to start the race this afternoon. Ferrari are the 3rd fastest cars as Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa will line up behind the McLarens on the starting grid. The top 3 teams of the season continue to battle for track supremacy as F1 countdown to the Brazil with only 3 remaining races. The best-of-the-rest status again went to Lotus Team driver Kimi Raikkonen as he posted the 7th fastest time during Q3. The Finn was followed closely by Sergio Perez for Sauber and Pastor Maldonado for Williams. Mercedes Team driver Nico Rosberg completed the top 10. Fernando Alonso must finish the remaining races ahead of Sebastian Vettel to keep his Championship hopes alive. The Spaniard currently is 6 point ...
Pastor Maldonado will start from pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix after Lewis Hamilton was excluded from qualifying for not returning to the pits after setting his best lap. Hamilton's McLaren was found to not have had enough fuel on board to comply with the rules that demand a car returns to the pits under its own power after qualifying with enough petrol for a one-litre sample to be provided to the FIA.

Michael Schumacher- Keeps Valencia podium Pastor Maldonado- Drive-through penalty Kamui Kobayashi- Five-place grid penalty for next race Jean-Eric Vergne- Double-penalty Michael Schumacher has retained his podium position in the European Grand Prix after stewards decided not impose a penalty. The German Mercedes driver was under investigation after having used his DRS when the yellow flags were on track on the final lap following the crash between Lewis Hamilton and Pastor Maldonado. Although television images confirmed Schumacher's DRS was open in the yellow-flag area, the race stewards deemed the seven-time champion had slowed down sufficiently and therefore decided no penalty was needed. Pastor Maldonado has been handed a retrospective drive-through penalty for causing a collision with Lewis Hamilton. That equated to 20 seconds being added to his finishing time. The penalty - given for "failing to rejoin the track in a safe manner" - relegates him to 12th position, promoting his Williams team-mate Bru ...

The just concluded F-1 European G.P. was just crazy.F. Alonso, who started race from 11th on the starting grid took the chequered flag and in the process became the 1st driver to win 2 races in the 2012 season. S. Vettel, the pole man retired and Lotus' Kimi Raikkonen finished the race in second. Pastor Maldonado tangled with Lewis Hamilton in the penultimate lap of the race and that enabled Michael Schumacher to take his 1st podium for the Mercedes GP team. Schumacher's last podium came way back in 2006 at The Chinese GP, i think. All in all it was an exciting, drama filled race. It felt so good to see Schumi on the Podium. P.S. What a weekend the Spanish sports fans are having.Their football team made the Semi-final last night and Alonso won a Formula-1 race in Valencia, Spain.
56/57 Pastor Maldonado gets on the outside of Lewis Hamilton, he drifts off track but refuses to give up and then t-bones the McLaren driver into the barriers! Unbelievable stuff! LEWIS HAMILTON IS OUT OF THE European Grand Prix
Sebastian Vettel uses the opportunity to pit as well and rejoins in the lead from Romain Grosjean and Fernando Alonso. Daniel Ricciardo is fourth, though he has only stopped once compared to his rivals, with Kimi Raikkonen fifth and Lewis Hamilton sixth. Nico Rosberg, Michael Schumacher, Mark Webber and Pastor Maldonado complete the top 10.
Fernando Alonso makes short work of Pastor Maldonado for third place as Lewis Hamilton has pitted for new boots. Kamui Kobayashi pits, too. Sebastian Vettel still leads from Romain Grosjean.
Lewis Hamilton has tipped Lotus as the favourites to win Sunday's European Grand Prix in Valencia. Hamilton qualified his McLaren second behind Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel. The Lotuses are fourth and fifth but have been fast on race-preparation runs. "I don't know who is going to win but I think the Lotus is going to be strongest," Hamilton said. "In the race it is between us and a lot of drivers," Hamilton said, adding that Force India and Ferrari were strong. Qualifying was intensely competitive in Valencia, with only 0.218secs separating the fastest driver in the second knock-out session from Fernando Alonso's Ferrari, which was 11th and therefore did not make it into the top 10 shoot-out. But in the final session, Vettel produced a stunning time to qualify 0.324 seconds clear of Hamilton in second place. The same margin covered the next six cars, with Williams's Pastor Maldonado third ahead of the Lotuses of Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen, Nico Rosberg's Mercedes and the Sauber of Kamui Kobayashi. ...

Romain Grosjean looked strong all morning and was fifth for Lotus just ahead of Jenson Button in the faster McLaren. The Briton did one run more on the super-softs than team mate Lewis Hamilton, whose final run was spoiled when Pastor Maldonado took the left-rear wheel off his Williams after clipping the inside wall in Casino Square and then clobbering the Armco on the exit. The session was red flagged, and as there were only just over three minutes left, it was not resumed. Several people missed apexes, while Vettel just kissed the Armco exiting the Swimming Pool and Di Resta swiped his Force India’s nose against it after getting out of shape under braking for the chicane.
Just watched today's race. Glad that Pastor Maldonado won. Annoyed that Lewis Hamilton was penalised like that. So he didn't have enough fuel to get back to the pits in qualifying. I would like the FIA to penalise the 4 drivers from the Bahrain Grand Prix that didn't make it back to the pits at the end of the race cause they had no fuel left. I think having an ex Ferrari team principal as the head of the FIA is starting to show a bit of bias.
Barcelona GP produces a fifth different winner in as many races this season.. Crazy I know! Pastor Maldonado wins a F1 GP for the first time in his career.. A result which was every bit deserving for the Venezuelan for he drove with determination, confidence and cockiness! Alonso nearly had him till the 64th lap of the race.. Tail-to-Tail but at last the better man prevailed... Iceman Kimi rounded of the podium positions... A disappointing outing for Force India I believe fuel load disparities and lack of confidence from Di Resta influenced their results.. Still Hulkenberg got a point.. Well worth the drive... For Red Bull, however an evening to forget.. Webber was lapped by his compatriots.. and Sebastian Vettel boosted by a new set of tyres only just managed to pass Lewis Hamilton for a sixth place finish.. Speaking of Hamilton, he was screwed out of the podium even before the race began.. But still by virtue of his skill and determined racing managed to figure at seventh in the table finishing above J ...
Superb drive from Maldonado to win his first race in only his second year in F1! Congratulations to Sir Frank Williams, a belated birthday gift. Williams have returned to its former glory.

Another great race...awesome drive by Pastor Maldonado and, i gotta say..Lewis Hamilton from 24 place...5 races, 5 winners...you cant help but thin kthat the next race would be won by Lotus or Sauber...onto the next one...MANCHESTER CITY...please make my night !
another Cup race, another disappointment. Jeff's left rear kept going down for no reason whatsoever, and Hendrick's 200th win goes to the mighty robot with the computer crew chief, somehow I knew they'd fix it so Jimmie got the 200th win. Needless to say, all this bad stuff happening to Jeff that is out of his control is beginning to *** me off! He must have done something to deserve this by being nice to everyone for 20 years. Good drives by Marcos, who came from 2 laps down to finish 9th, and Logano, who hit the wall but came back to finish 10th. Lewis Hamilton qualified on pole for the Grand Prix of Spain, but did not return to the pits under his own power, so he is stripped of the pole and will start at the back. Pastor Maldonado inherits his first career pole and everyone moves up a spot. In a race where the pole sitter always wins, this is now wide open as Maldonado's Williams does not have the race pace to win. Alonso would love a win in his home Grand Prix and the two Lotus drivers of Rai ...
