Hamilton Picks up Another USGP Win at COTA

Full results || Notable events

  • Lewis Hamilton again beats rival Sebastian Vettel in a dominant victory at the USGP but will have to wait at least one more race to lock a world title.
  • The Mercedes AMG Petronas team got the points to insure its its fourth consecutive victory in the constructors’ championship.
  • Max Verstappen finished 3rd but was penalized five seconds for passing Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen by cutting Turn 17 on the last lap moving him into 4th place.
  • As long as Hamilton does not lose 16 points to Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel in Mexico next weekend, he will be world champion for the third time in four years, in addition to his first title in 2008 with McLaren.

The next race is the Mexican Grand Prix, 27-29 October, 2017.

But honestly, what happened to this championship? Ferrari was really great, it wasn’t just a coincidence that they were leading after Australia, no, they were leading in 12 races! Actually, Seb had more podiums in the first half of the season than Hamilton. We were supposed to see fight between them till the very end, till the last corner of the last race. How could everything be gone after 3 races? They were working so hard, Seb, Kimi, the whole team… they gave everything from yourself. Yeah, F1 is a tecnical sport and blah,blah… But I still can’t believe that Mercedes won constructor championship in USA, when there are still 3 races to go and Hamilton will win it in Mexico. I can’t even imagine how is Seb feeling right now and people critizing him for being upset after yesterday’s race, well. I don’t really know how would you react if you’d be in his situation. He proved many times this year that he is not giving up but there’s certain amount of what one can endure. He is not a robot, he is a person with emotiom and he have every reason to be damn upset. So.

Ferrari GT Teams Dominate the 6 Hours of Fuji

Ferrari dominated the 6 Hours of Fuji with wins in both GT classes, consolidating top spot in the Constructors’ standings and taking the lead in the Drivers’ Championship with Alessandro Pier Guidi and James Calado. The drivers of car #51 were always on the attack and were backed by a perfect strategy from the AF Corse pit wall. Ferrari even did the double in the GTE-Am class with a first victory for the 488 GTE of Spirit Of Race driven by Thomas Flohr, Francesco Castellacci and Miguel Molina. The 488 GTE of Clearwater Racing team came second with Keita Sawa, Weng Sun Mok and Matt Griffin.

Max Verstappen of Red Bull has won the Mexican Grand Prix, but Lewis Hamilton has won the Formula One Drivers Championship for the fourth time in his career. 

Verstappen finished first in the race, alongside Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes and Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari on the podium, while Hamilton finished ninth.

Hamilton went into Sunday’s race needing a fifth-place finish or better to secure the championship, but his top competition, Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari, also needed a win to hold Hamilton off. He didn’t get it, finishing in fourth.

Mercedes has also already won the Constructor’s Championship as a team this year, so it’s been a great season for them, even if the car wasn’t as dominant as it was a year ago.

Four the team.
Congratulations #lewishamilton, on your fourth Formula 1 World Champion title. And to each and every member of the #mercedesamgf1 team on your fourth Constructors’ World Championship win in a row. We couldn’t be more proud of these incredible achievements. #4theteam

Paul DiResta doing his best impression of Flavio Briatore on SkyF1 post race. “Ferrari will never win a championship with Kimi”

You make me laugh salty boy. 😂😂

1) He already has a WDC with Ferrari and 2 constructors championships with them.

2) He’s a better driver than you are & if your trying to lobby for his seat bc Williams isn’t looking too good- you ain’t getting it, Charles or Daniel will.

3) Get over yourself and the fact kimi told you to stay in the reporting during the Hungarian GP 2017. He doesn’t lose sleep over it like you seem to. Okay? 😁😁😁😁

Williams active suspension  1993

The Williams FW15C was a Renault-powered Formula One car designed by Adrian Newey and built by Williams Grand Prix Engineering. It was raced by Alain Prost and Damon Hill during the 1993 Formula One season.
As the car that won both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships in the last season before the FIA banned electronic driver aids, the FW15C has a decent claim to be the most technologically sophisticated Formula One car of all time, incorporating anti-lock brakes, traction control and active suspension.

The original FW15 was a new car designed in 1992 to incorporate the active suspension changes developed and implemented on the earlier FW14B. The FW14B had initially been designed as a passive car (FW14) and had been pushed into being active. This meant it had various new active components implemented on the car which had not been in the original design brief. It was therefore considered a bloated and relatively overweight package. The original FW15 was an active car from the start which enabled a much tidier package closer to the minimum weight limit. The success of the FW14B meant that the FW15 was not needed in 1992.

The FW15B was a 1992 FW15 hastily converted to the 1993 regulations featuring narrow-track front suspension, narrower tyres, raised nose and wing endplates and narrower wings to enable early season testing for 1993.


For the second year in a row, our MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team has won the Constructors’ Championship. From the factory to the finish line, we thank everyone for their outstanding performance. We are unbelievably proud of you! #wonteam
