Mercedes won F1 after winning the Japanese Grand Prix

Valtteri Bottas’ victory on the Suzuka racetrack at noon on October 13 helped Mercedes win the race team category for the sixth year in a row.

Bottas finished first with a record of 1 hour 21 minutes 46 seconds, though coming after the Ferrari duo. The Finnish driver had an excellent race by taking advantage of Sebastian Vettel’s mistake at the start. Vettel came in second, 13.3 seconds behind Bottas. The Ferrari driver was under intense pressure from Lewis Hamilton – who finished third with only 0.5 seconds worse performance, in the last six rounds.

All the most important events of the Japanese GP stage are encapsulated in the first round. In addition to Bottas taking the lead, Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc collided, causing Red Bull riders to fall to T18 and then give up. The Leclerc car broke its front spoiler and had to enter the pit in round 4. The Monaco driver continued to race and finished sixth.

This collision was initially ignored by the referees. However, Verstappen complained that the fault belongs to Leclerc. After the race, the referees vowed to investigate further. If found guilty, Leclerc will be punished. Verstappen’s departure gave Honda – Red Bull’s engine supplier – a sad race at home, though Alexander Albon finished fourth.

The organizers announced that the result of the last lap was not counted due to the black and white checkered flag. This makes a rare occurrence. Sergio Perez’s car lost control and crashed into the barrier in the final round, but the Racing Point team driver was still counted as ninth because the result counted in 52 laps. Nico Hulkenberg fell to 10th and Perez’s teammate Lance Stroll lost points by dropping to 11.

Bottas’ victory means that Mercedes has won the F1 title for the sixth consecutive year. The German racing team was more or less struggling after the summer break, when Ferrari rode up. However, Mercedes won the last two races. One of their two drivers will be crowned in the individual race, and that person is most likely Hamilton, because he is leading teammate Bottas 64 points when the season is 4 stages.

Because of the storm hitting Japan on October 12, the organizers canceled the third test run (FP3). Therefore, the drivers spent 36 hours without sitting in the cars when they entered the qualifying round at 10am 13/1 (Tokyo time). Ferrari showed that they were well prepared for Sunday when they suddenly took the two starting positions. Vettel overcame Leclerc to win the pole.

When the convoy came into the starting position, Vettel’s SF90 showed signs of inching up before the signal light had gone out. The German racer stalled a bit and Bottas took the opportunity to steer out into the lane to get ahead. Verstappen also started well and surpassed Hamilton. The Red Bull rider then tries to outdo Leclerc, but the collision causes his efforts to go away. The referee did not penalize Vettel for an error that occurred after reviewing the video, deciding that the Ferrari driver’s car was still moving at an acceptable distance.

Taking advantage of the lead, Bottas comfortably increased the distance with Vettel through each round. Realizing that the tire was more worn out than expected, Ferrari called Vettel to return to the pit in the 17th round to replace him with the soft tire, hoping to increase the pressure on the opponent. With this return pit, Ferrari certainly used the double pit tactic for Vettel.

Mercedes may only need a single visit to the pit thanks to the tire holding capacity of the W10. But like Ferrari, they noticed that the tires were worn out quickly, and also called Bottas to the pit in the 18th round. Mercedes didn’t want to risk a race and their chances of winning were higher. The fact that Vettel was sandwiched between two Mercedes drivers also made the German team more confident when calling Bottas to the pit early.

The 2 most attractive racing world in the world

Speed – beautiful but equally dangerous, the racing tour in the world gives fans a lot of emotion.

Both cars and motorcycles have fierce, mighty, high-coverage races like F1 and MotoGP but can be as dangerous and risky as the Isle of Man TT.

1. F1 (Formular One)

Formula 1 racing (Formular One) is the highest race for cars. Originating from street races in France from the early 20th century, until 1950, the race was officially recognized at Silverstone (England). The name “formula 1” represents a series of technical requirements that teams and riders must adhere to. From the start up to now, these elements have been constantly changing to suit the development of technology, as well as increasing the appeal of the race.

Every year there are two championship awards awarded to the racing team and riders. Up to now the world record holder is still Michael Schumacer with 7 championships, including 5 consecutive times from 200-2004. Ferrari is the team that won the most championships. The race is built in separate areas, or even in the street as in Monaco (France), this is also the most important race of F1.

The average speed of the track is always over 200 km / h, the maximum speed is over 300 km / h. Pole position is the starting position, one day before each official race, the riders will participate in the race to win the pole position. F1 is a favorite sport and watched all over the world because of the appeal of speed, technology and beautiful people after the pitch.

2. MotoGP

If F1 is the most famous in the open-wheel car segment, MotoGP (Grands Prix) is best known in the world motorcycle village. Speed ​​in MotoGP is no less on the F1 race, but the attraction is even more possible, because the image of each hugging the land, hiding the wind speed that the drivers draw a lot more ‘adventure’ with F1. MotoGP comes from motor racing events held on the Isle of Man on the island between England and Ireland. After World War II, the international organization of FIM motorcycles (Federation Internationale De Motorcyclisme) organized today’s GP race.

MotoGP includes 3 categories: Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP. Moto3 previously used for 125 cc vehicles, now upgraded to a 4 stroke 250 cc engine, maximum weight of 65 kg of gasoline. Previous Moto2 for 250 cc, now raised to 4 then 600 cc. MotoGP has increased from 800 to 1,000 cubic meters since the 2012 season. MotoGP is the largest of the three, with 18 GPs held worldwide annually.

Russian Grand Prix: Leclerc won the fourth leg in a row

The fastest Ferrari Charles Leclerc driver in the Russian Grand Prix qualifier with a minute of 31,628 seconds on the Sochi track on September 28.

Leclerc won the pole in Spa (Belgium), Monza (Italy), Marina Bay (Singapore) and now Sochi (Russia). The Monaco driver overwhelms rivals in all three Russian Grand Prix qualifying rounds. He is always at the top of every race when he successfully completes the race, even with just one race in Q1. The second and third fastest qualifying rounds are Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) and Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) with 0.402 and 0.425 seconds slower than Leclerc.

Fourth place went to Max Verstappen (Red Bull) – the fastest person on the first test day – with 0.682 seconds slower than Leclerc. But due to a five-point penalty, the Dutch driver will only start the race in ninth place. Starting in fourth and fifth place belong to Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) and Carlos Sainz (McLaren). Alexander Albon (Red Bull) disappointed in being eliminated immediately in round 1.

The top five places in the Russian qualifying round are similar to those in Singapore. Ferrari continues to show that changes in aerodynamics at Marina Bay are reasonable. The SF90 is still slightly better than its rivals at Sochi.

Ferrari started Q1 with regular tires, while Mercedes used soft tires. But, Leclerc is still the fastest in the first run a minute 33,613 seconds. Vettel’s first run was not good when he made a mistake at Turn 13 – a 90-degree angle after a long straight line. In this same position, Albon hits the barricade and fails to get past Q1. The race paused after the accident of the Red Bull racer, when Vettel did not produce satisfactory results. After the race continued, Vettel had to change soft tires to ensure the passing of Q1. Eligible riders, besides Albon, are George Russell, Robert Kubica (Williams), Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso) and Kimi Raikkonen (Alfa Romeo). Host Kvyat did not attend the qualifying round because of a technical error.

Ferrari switched to soft tires in Q2, which means it will start a race with similar tires. Leclerc uses the newest and fastest tire with a minute of 32,434 seconds. The Mercedes couple used regular tires at the beginning of Q2, then switched to soft tires. But they failed to reach the 32-minute mark.

It took until Q3 for Mercedes to reach its full potential and reach the 32-minute mark. Vettel does not have a good position at the beginning of Q3, with the next car being Hamilton. Meanwhile, Leclerc leads and comfortably pushes the speed to the highest. He was fastest in the first round with a 31,801 second minute, far ahead of Vettel and Hamilton respectively 0.334 seconds and 0.564 seconds. In the last run, only Leclerc still reached the one-minute mark of 31 seconds. But, Hamilton greatly improved performance with the best results in the three (sector) region.

History of the World Tour de France cycling race

The largest cycling tournament in the world Tour de France is a sports event loved by tens of millions of people around the world but little is known about the history of this race and its history.

The idea of ​​Tour de France dates back to the 1900s. At that time, there was a major sports newspaper in France – L’Auto Velo. When L’Auto Velo published an article supporting Mr. Albert Dreyfus – a French soldier accused of selling military secrets to Germany – made L’Auto Velo sponsor angry and decided to set up a newspaper. sports to be a competitor – Le Velo. After Dreyfus, France split into two camps – those who believed that Dreyfus was guilty and those who thought he was innocent. The sponsor sided with the first, and forced L’Auto Velo to change its name to L’Auto.

The competition between the two newspapers became fierce and L’Auto quickly lost ground to the opponent. To survive, the newspaper needs to do something stronger.

This idea was formed in 1902 by Georges Lefèvre – a journalist of L’Auto. He wants to have a tough, long, scale and better bike race than any race before. The first tour de France began on July 1, 1903, starting in Montgeron on the outskirts of Paris with 60 riders participating in the competition, a 6-stage race with a total length of 2,428 km from Paris cities (and also the destination of each leg) such as Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Nantes and then return to Paris. There are many days-off between the stages. This race has fascinated the audience from 1903 to the present, except during World War 1 (from 1915 to 1918) and World War 2 (from 1940 to 1946) is not advanced. Executive organization. The race has been successful and is held every year for 3 weeks of July with the race across France and neighboring countries.

Tour de France is often seen as the most difficult bicycle race in the world and with this race has a total of 21 stages, a journey of about 3,360 km in 3 weeks, including up and down mountain routes. Not only that, the endurance of the riders is also challenged by the time of the race this year in the hot and hot sun of summer.

Usually riders will have 2 days off between rides. This year, a total of 22 racing teams including 5 French teams, the rest are from the United States, England, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Russia, South Africa, Australia, Spain, Italy, Kazakhstan.

Singapore GP racing: Opening Asia under the shimmering lights

Young driver Charles Leclerc and the famous Ferrari team had a dramatic victory against the reigning champion Hamilton of Mercedes at the Monza race.

With two straight-field victories, the #16 driver lit the double runner-up opportunity for Ferrari this season, despite the bobbing performance of his fellow team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

The 15th leg of the season hosts the island nation of Singapore. This is considered a traditional night race running on the bustling streets shimmering lights in Singapore by Marina Bay.

The first Singapore GP took place in 2008, the year that Ferrari’s Massa racer won the pole but the winner of this race was Alonso of Renault (two years later in 2010, Alonso replaced Raikkonen as a Massa teammate in Ferrari). According to information from the moderator of the Formula 1 tournament, Singapore GP will have 2 seasons held under the contract signed until 2021.

As a street race, the track is set based on traffic around the bay, the Marina Bay Street Circuit has a total length of 5,065 km including 13 left and 10 right corners. The riders completed a total of 61 laps with a total journey of 308,828 km in a counter-clockwise direction. In contrast to the high-speed Monza, the track in Singapore has the lowest entry speed, largely because of the use of narrow streets.

So this is a race with a total time of approximately 2 hours, last year is the shortest Singapore GP race with the time of Lewis Hamilton winner 1 hour 51 minutes 11,611 seconds. In order to have a perfect lap, the F1 car must be set high downforce so that the car in and out of the car can still keep up the necessary speed.

Engine (gearbox), brakes, suspension, the cooling system will be the top concern of the engineering team. The record for 1 round was set in 2018 with the achievement of Lewis Hamilton, 1 minute 36,015, improved over 10 seconds compared to the first years playing here. It is truly impressive development of the ability of F1 cars to be able to do.

Pirelli specifies Soft (C5, red) – Medium (C4, yellow) – Hard (C3, white) tires. The drivers and teams prepare their own tactics according to the list of selected tires.

With the current stormy weather in Southeast Asia, rain tires will be provided for this race by default. The track has 2 DRS segments on the two longest lines at this track, one is the line going through the starting/destination line (the point specified in front of crabs 22) and the other is in the middle of the 5-7 lane (the point of determination) 4). This year the track has one more DRS zone (bringing the total number of DRS zones to 3) located in the straight line between crabs 13-14 with the point located behind crab 12 to improve the ability to overtake the race.

However, overtaking each other in Singapore is considered by the riders to be “not easy to eat” when competing, so the ranking results on Saturday almost determine 100% of the final result of the race. In the past, Hamilton and Vettel both won 4 stages here. Two other champions, Alonso 2 (2008, 2010) and Rosberg 1 (2016), both have left the tournament.

Distinctive by the overall score with the team chasing nearly the total victory of four races, Lewis Hamilton will almost successfully defend the championship in the 2019 season, raising his personal achievements to six times the world champion after the legendary with 7 times world champion Michael Schumacher.

However, once Ferrari has truly revived, plus Red Bull’s determination to lose nothing, finding the glory in the remaining 7 races of the #44 racer season and the “Silver Arrow” appears not as simple as the monopoly seasons are over. This will be interesting for the fans of Formula 1 to follow up to the last race this season.
