It has been a very controversial Formula One season with lot of heat on Ecclestone and the new engines, that are too “quiet”, making the race not as interesting.
When the season opened on March 16 at the Australian Grand Prix, the winner was Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg.
Next time at the Malaysia Grand Prix, Rosberg’s team mate Lewis Hamilton was the fastest. He also won the next three races until this Saturday’s race in Monaco, where Rosberg beat him, taking the top spot.
Even though the two are team mates, there is lot of tension between the two. Is it big egos or something else, but they are what media calls at ‘Ayrton Senna style-war’ after their relationship broke down spectacularly in Monaco.
Hamilton believes Rosberg’s mistake in the dying moments of qualifying was deliberate, though officially there is “no evidence” that Rosberg committed “any offence”.
Hamilton did not speak out loud that Rosberg did it intentionally, but mentioned “I was on target, I should have known that was going to happen.”
Rosberg says it was a simple brake lock-up that caused him to go into the run-off zone and then reverse out. As always there are people who agree with him and those who don’t.
One thing is sure that next race in Canada in early June is going to be interesting.
Is it Rosberg again or Hamilton taking the top spot? Hard to tell who is the better driver, but if you have a good guess, then you can always bet on F1 on Titan Bet.
Six races are behind us with Hamilton coming out first in four of those and Rosberg in two races. There are 13 more races with the last one scheduled for November 23th in Abu Dhabi. A lot can happen during these 13 races.
Is it going to be a battle between two man or does anyone else have a chance is hard to tell, but currently it looks like the run for the title is between two team mates, who are far from being good supporting “mates”…
