Formula 1 has always been a greatly watched sport all over the world and although its audience has been decreasing since 2009, those who are passionate about cars will never stop loving such a competitive sport.
The adrenaline and blood rushes that happens throughout the races is something fascinating and even more at the start of this year in Melbourne, Australia.
The first GP (Grand Prix) was held in Australia like always but this year’s championship has come with some surprises. Sadly, the Malaysian GP will not be happening this year as hosting such a big event had become quite a burdening cost, however, the French and German GPs will be held instead, in quite exciting tracks.
The summary of the teams and drivers follows below, with only some slight changes such as:
The Australian GP also presented quite a surprise as Sebastian Vettel in Ferrari won the race followed by Hamilton, Raikkonen, Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso.
Lastly, its very interesting to notice that after several years of testing and debates, a head protection paraphernalia was implemented on the cars. The feature is known as the halo and is a roll-bar structure with a single central strut, made of titanium and weighing 7Kg.
We expect for this year’s Championship to be really exciting and at point nerve-racking and some of us can’t wait for the Brazilian GP in Interlagos the 11th of November to arrive.
