Hamilton then picked up where he left off the campaign prior by running out a worthy victor in 2017, and he now has his sights firmly set on producing another superb showing throughout this current...

Controversy in Baku as Red Bull drivers collide

There was controversy in Baku, Azerbaijan, as for the second time in three races, Red Bull Racing scored a double-DNF, this time it at the hands of their own drivers – Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen coming together on lap 40 of the 51 lap encounter. The pair had been inseparable for a great deal of the Grand Prix, and with Ricciardo seeming quicker, it was the Australian, putting pressure on Verstappen, that collided with the back of the Dutchman’s Red Bull, taking both cars out of the race.

Australian Grand Prix 2018 – Review

Sebastian Vettel drew first blood, in his red Ferrari, as the German took advantage of a ‘virtual safety-car’ period to lead home the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton by over five seconds at the opening round of 2018.

Lewis Hamilton headed qualifying for...
