Formula 1 2014 Summer Break Begins, Speculation For Finish Continues
On the 16th of March, the Formula 1 kicked off with the Australian Gran Prix, with Nico Rosberg for Mercedes crossing the finish line first.Rosberg is definitely seen as a potential winner and although he is viewed as the underdog at Mercedes, behind team-mate Lewis Hamilton, we could see this German shake things up over the next few races.
Meanwhile, Hamilton could be leading the championship however he is currently 2-0 down in qualifying and 2-1 down in terms of race failures.
With some major changes in the Williams team, we have seen some vast improvements including in the car itself. Pat Symonds has now stepped in as the CTO with Rob Smedley from Ferrari as the head of vehicle performance, so don’t underestimate this top team just yet.
Thanks to Jules Bianchi hitting 9th place in Monaco, Marussia scored their first points ever but this might be a little too late for this team.
Let’s face it, with Kimi Raikkonen behind the Ferrari wheel, we haven’t seen any outstanding performances yet especially after he was eliminated from qualifying in the first knock-out session in Hungary.
But Alonso could be the Ace that the Ferrari team needs so all eyes will be on him during the Belgian Grand Prix which will take place on August 24.
Among the fans, Mercedes is definitely the team expected to win the Formula 1 this year and the only big question is, which team-mate will take the chequered flag?
