Formula 1 2012: Hungarian Grand Prix - Hamilton start-to-finish

The Formula 1 series moved from Germany to Hungary, running on back-to-back weekends heading into its month-long summer break. Practice and qualifying in Hockenheim was marked by rain, with the race occurring in dry weather. This situation was reversed in Budapest, with dust making the track slippery during qualifying and a 100% chance of rain forecast for the race. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) snagged the pole, with Romain Grosjean (Lotus) qualifying on the front row for the first time in P2 and S...

Formula 1 2012: German Grand Prix - Alonso wins his third

Photo: Getty Images Another rainy weekend was waiting for the Formula 1 2012 teams in Hockenheim, Germany, for the German Grand Prix. Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) prevailed to take poll position, with Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) second, and Mark Webber (Red Bull) third. Webber, however, was assigned a five-spot grid penalty for a gearbox change, ceding P3 to Michael Schumacher (Mercedes) in his home race. Schumi was joined on the second row by fellow German Nico Hulkenberg (Force India). Schumach...

Formula 1 2012: Monaco Grand Prix

Photo: LAT Images And the 2012 count continues; five races and five winners from five teams, Williams’ Pastor Maldonado being the most recent following his triumph in Spain. An eventful qualifying in Monaco set up the distinct possibility of a sixth new winner. Michael Schumacher took his first pole since 2006, but had to surrender it due to a 5 grid-spot penalty stemming from a collision in Spain with Maldonado’s Williams teammate Bruno Senna, leaving Mark Webber (Red Bull) in th...

Formula 1 2012: Bahrain Grand Prix

The political tumult of Bahrain aside, competition got back to ‘normal’ this week with a front-three on the grid of Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull), season points-leader Lewis Hamilton (McLaren), and Mark Webber (Red Bull). Look just a tiny bit further beneath the surface, however, and some of the variety that has made 2012 such an exciting season is easy to see, with both Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) and Sergio Perez (Sauber) within striking distance of the top spot and Daniel Ricciardo (Tor...

Formula 1 2012: Kimi Raikkonen interview post-China

Photo: Lotus F1 Team. China was a tough Grand Prix for Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus). After qualifying P4 and running as high as 2nd late in the race an excursion into the marbles and tire degradation saw him plummet to 14th by the checkered flag. Teammate Romain Grosjean helped carry the team flag, coming in 6th after starting in P10 on the grid. Despite the tough race in China, Raikkonen's woes can't hold a candle to Michael Schumacher at Mercedes, who has 1 point and 2 DNFs to...

Formula 1 2012: Chinese Grand Prix

Race 3 of the 2012 Formula 1 season brings the series to Shanghai for the Grand Prix of China. Even before the race itself, drama was running high. Nico Rosberg drove to his first pole in 111 races and in the process gave Mercedes its first since Juan Manuel Fangio at Monza in 1955. At the same time, defending champion Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) failed to make into Q3 for the first time since 2009, taking 11th on the grid and being out-qualified by teammate Mark Webber for the third time this s...

Formula 1 2012: Malaysian Grand Prix

McLaren locked down the front row for the second consecutive race, with Lewis Hamilton once again edging out Jenson Button. But lurking at P3, his highest qualifying position since 2006, was Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher. And with rain beginning to fall, both Schumacher, a historically great wet-weather racer and Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel, who started today in P6, were looking good. Hamilton held the lead from the start, with Button also holding P2. Schumacher spun on Lap 1...

Formula 1 2012: Australian Grand Prix

Free at last! Let those racecars run! The winter was short, and even shorter what with personnel moves, technical adjustments, and shifting teams. Testing helped break the ice. But there’s nothing like actual points competition. And the season starts in Australia with a classic the-more-things-change the-more-they-stay-the-same setup. On the change side, Red Bull Racing – for which two-time consecutive champion Sebastian Vettel ran the table in 2011 -- is relegated to Row 3 of the s...
