F1: Belgium – Rosberg wins, Ricciardo follows; Hamilton P21 to P3

The summer break ended with intrigue and accomplishment. Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg won pole at Spa-Fracorchamps, while grid penalties put his championship-leading teammate on the back row of the field. With a race win worth 25 points and 19 points separating the two, the implications were clearer. Max Verstappen (Red Bull) lined up next to Rosberg, at 18 years-old becoming the youngest driver ever to start on the front row of a Formula 1 grid.

F1: Abu Dhabi – Rosberg wins third straight to close 2015

Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) won the Brazilian Grand Prix two weeks ago. He started on pole and led the entire race; the same for teammate Lewis Hamilton in second, and more or less the entire top part of the grid. Interlagos might be a fun circuit to drive, and a beautiful one to watch cars turn laps on, but riveting competition is not its forte. I love this form of this sport, but Brazil scored one for the haters. Rosberg and Hamilton topped qualifying again at Yas Marina. Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari)...
