F1 after half way: Mercedes, Ferrari split half sad and happy

The Formula 1 (F1) race is in the summer vacation after a very intense period with five races in just 7 weeks, so this seems like a great time to look back at the half of the season.


With 12 races passed and the remaining 9 races, some teams and drivers have had a good first half of 2019… and a few failed.

While Ferrari showed great promise at the test stage in Barcelona, ​​Mercedes had overcome barriers in the first race in Melbourne, and showed a dominant dominance in the first half of the season. Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas took the lead in the first few stages – in fact Bottas dominated the qualifiers until Monaco. As a result, Hamilton won eight stages, while Bottas won two podiums.

But the British champion was more brave in difficult situations when Ferrari and Red Bull became more frequent threats to Mercedes’ dominance when the spring turned summer. At this point, Bottas gradually deteriorated and was 62 points away from his teammate. This gap shows that Hamilton still retains his near perfect performance with his Finnish teammates. Above all, they are helping Mercedes towards another title and another record – the first team to win 6 double individual and team championships.

After Mercedes and Hamilton, Max Verstappen is the name to be mentioned when the Dutch driver won 2 stages and won the pole in the recent race in Hungary. In addition, Verstappen is the only driver who has not made any significant mistakes this year and while the Red Bull is not as fast as Ferrari or Mercedes in the first stages, Verstappen is constantly on the podium. podium.

By winning 2 of the last 4 stages – and almost 3 in Hungary, Verstappen showed that he could threaten Mercedes and Hamilton for the remainder of the season.

One reason for the Dutch young driver to have more hope is Red Bull’s engine partner. Although still inferior to Ferrari and Mercedes, but the progress Honda achieved is remarkable. Winning the pole in the hybrid era is the achievement of engine manufacturers after many years of failing with McLaren. Therefore, it is not surprising that Red Bull and Honda will become the main concerns for Mercedes next season.

F1 racing: When women no longer appear on the roads

If you have to point out images that always appear at racing events, especially F1 racing, then there must be hot models with standard bodies.


They are of course not the main characters of the races, nor do they play any important roles. The job of these girls is simply to put on sexy clothes, smile at the camera, welcome riders and most importantly: indirectly advertise brands by attracting glances of the audience. Sometimes, they have the task of waving the flag to start the race, but absolutely nothing is too significant.

Not significant in terms of expertise, but the image of beauty attached to supercars seems to have become common sense in the public eye. Car launches or promotions must have a beautiful model team. Many of the racing roads in Hollywood blockbusters start with a fiery girl coming out in front of roaring cars, admiring the riders and signaling to start the journey to find out who is the fastest one.

1

Yet, since 2018, the audience will no longer be able to see those girls on the roads of F1 racing again when the tournament committee decides to stop recruiting models in all stages of the race.

Sean Braches, commercial director of F1 racing, said: “We feel the use of models at Grand Prix events is no longer consistent with the F1 racing brand value and goes backward with the values ​​of modern society”.

In fact, F1 racing is just one of many sports events that use beautiful models to serve the tournament’s commercial image. Can include boxing matches, UFC wrestling matches, beautiful racing events or Billiard tournaments. And F1 is not the first sports tournament to decide to stop using the model. Earlier, the World Professional Darts Association also announced a similar decision.

This decision of Mr. Sean Braches has officially closed over 50 years of participation in F1 racing of female models worldwide. In the feminine era as the throne along with the female harassment, scandals are more and more exposed in the entertainment world, it seems time for companies to be more careful in using female images.

Of course, the elimination of F1’s female model has met with strong opposition. Since the Japanese singer, Rosa Ogawa, became the first girl to promote brands on the track in the 60s, the concept of vehicles to be accompanied by beauty has been won the world. widely received. Despite many criticisms in the 1970s because of revealing clothing, this trend still flourishes and opens up employment opportunities for many girls.

Anyway, the final decision was made and certainly, the roads of the F1 racing season 2018 will no longer be available but the beautiful female model. Does that make this planet’s number one high-end racing car lacking in appeal?

The British Grand Prix will stay in Silverstone until 2024

Just before the British GP took place, the organizers announced they had successfully renewed the F1 contract until 2024.


F1 reached a new agreement with one of the legendary races of the tournament after long negotiations. The old agreement between F1 and Silverstone will expire when this season ends. Therefore, many people are concerned that this weekend will be the last GP of England to be held at the track which has been attached to F1 since 1950.

However, F1 executives succeeded in signing a new, five-year agreement, with the British Racers Club (BRDC) – owners of Silverstone. “We believe the stronger F1 with Silverstone and Silverstone is also stronger with F1”, said BRDC chairman John Grant.

In the past, there has been speculation that London will host another race at F1, alongside Silverstone. Grant believes that Silverstone’s new agreement with F1 does not affect the likelihood that the British capital will have two races to host F1 events in parallel.

England first organized an F1 race at Silverstone in 1950. Since 1987, this track is the annual British GP organization. “We have always asserted that. If you want to look to the future, F1 needs to keep historical places like Silverstone and England is considered the cradle of this sport since 1950”, executive director F1 Chase Carey said.

F1 claims to keep the traditional races in Europe. However, the deal with the Spanish and German racetrack will expire in 2020. That will be new challenges for the leaders of the sport. Lewis Hamilton, who will aim to win Friday at the British GP this weekend, claims that Silverstone is the track that F1 cannot afford to lose.

So Silverstone is the 20th race track listed on the F1 schedule of the season 2020. Among the 2019 F1 races is still the Spanish GP, the German GP and the Mexican GP have no tickets.

Silverstone is the first F1 race to be held in 1950’s British history and is the third-largest F1 race track after Monza and Monaco. The following year F1 will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its establishment and development, so the parties are very happy with this new contract.

F1 racing: A fresh young wind, ending the nearly 13-year waiting period

F1 racing saw the top 2 in history when Verstappen had an incredible comeback after the first round to forget and prevent Leclerc from reaching his first career victory.


This is the sixth victory and the second consecutive time Max has crowned at the Red Bull Ring home turf after returning from the fourth starting position in 2018.

The Dutch driver was the last to defeat Mercedes from Mexico last year and in Austria recently, ending the successive circuit of the “silver arrow”. This was the first victory for Honda after Jenson Button’s final coronation at Hungarian GP in 2006, ending the nearly 13-year waiting period.

 Leclerc dropped the victory after leading the majority of the race for the second time this season, leaving him unable to have the honor of being the winner of all three racing modes at Spielberg (once won at GP3 ​​Series and F2 before). But anyway, the 2nd place is still his best F1 racing achievement to date and beat his teammate in the second stage in a row. Vettel started ninth but finished in fourth place after overcoming Hamilton in the final rounds.

This is the first time in 2019 they did not stand on the highest podium and ended the series of 10 consecutive victories, not being able to balance the McLaren’s 11-stage record set in 1988. Hamilton only got the top 5 results and also lost sequences of consecutive podium and Bottas have for the first time participated in the top 3 without Hamilton since Canadian GP in 2018.

McLaren won the top battle for the third time in four stages when Norris excelled on Friday. The papaya colored car showed strength throughout the weekend and even Norris had times to step into the top. Sainz also had a memorable race from 19th, he managed to finish at No. 8, helping the team to score the third double scoring of the year. Now after 9 stages, they have surpassed their 2017 scores and are only 10 points behind what they have done in 2018.

Alfa Romeo is the remaining team in the top 10 and has the first double scoring record of the year. The team made good use of the advantage in Q3 to get the 9th and 10th place finishes. Through that, Raikkonen had the sixth stage this year with Antonio Giovinazzi, and the Italian driver finally got it. first score at F1 racing and is the 18th driver to score points in the year. Currently only Williams has no score but they have the fourth stage in a row to win the title Pit Stop the fastest.

Austrian GP this year saw a lot of accidents on the 6th day of training when the racers faced strong winds. However, all 20 cars avoided the bumps on Sunday, and all returned safely. This race is the 9th stage in history that has been completed without DNF, particularly in the hybrid turbo era, this number is 5, representing the high durability of F1 racing cars in recent years and the near future.

Vettel: Easy to be angry because of losing so much

If Formula 1 (F1) needs a scenario to enliven a season dominated by Mercedes, they certainly have it at the Canadian Grand Prix. The penalty for Vettel in Canada GP is a testimony.


Each F1 supercar with a price of millions of USD is the crystallization of the peak of technology, science and technology. To see firsthand the speed machines, fans have to spend a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, but this opportunity is coming to international sports and speed lovers completely for free!

Lewis Hamilton won his fifth victory in seven stages this year and Mercedes’ winning series continued to last after Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who seemed to win, was fined 5 seconds for dangerous driving. The one who laughed in Vettel’s pain was none other than Hamilton, and therefore, the 78th victory in the career of the British racer, helping him get closer to the sixth world title, became one of the most controversial thing.

1

The moment that caused a social media storm and provoked the sulk from Vettel after the race – he initially refused to go to the podium before being comforted by officials, and then leave the interview. midway – happened in round 48.

Vettel led the race from the start, after winning a pole on Saturday, his first time in 17 races. However, Hamilton is not moderate. After entering the pit-stop, the Mercedes started chasing the German driver, shortening Vettel’s 5-second lead to less than a second in 10 laps.

In the other nine laps, Hamilton continued to exert pressure by keeping the distance within 1 second with the Ferrari. And then Vettel made a mistake.

The German racer in the 3/4 bend is too fast, the whole car gets on the grass and enters the track. When Vettel did so, he lost control and drove the car to the side of the track. It is worth mentioning that Vettel almost knocked Hamilton’s head off when the British driver was cornering properly, before being pressed by Vettel to the divider.

Canadian developments at the Grand Prix will definitely prolong the debate. However, the key point is that this is not the first time Vettel is in a situation of being under the pressure of the race. This is even a problem for the German driver in the last two years or more, when he and Ferrari have sought a hopeless solution to prevent Hamilton and Mercedes.

Last year, Vettel made five important driving mistakes, the errors slowly took away his chances of competing for the championship that he could at least maintain to the final stages, and could have won if those errors do not occur.

This year, after 7 stages, Vettel made 2 mistakes. An error in the race with Hamilton in Bahrain, and now in Montreal. People can agree with the penalty or not, but everything will be fine if Vettel makes no mistakes that lead to controversy.

3

This year is not last year. However, while Mercedes has won all seven stages, in fact, three of them are likely to belong to Ferrari – if Charles Leclerc’s engine does not encounter problems in the final rounds in Bahrain, Leclerc did not meet ears. in qualifying in Azerbaijan and Vettel are not penalized in Canada.

Even if Ferrari could improve the car to challenge Mercedes in every race, Vettel could not expect to beat an opponent of the same level Hamilton had achieved in the past three years if he could not find a way limit those mistakes.

There will be a Formula race exclusively for female riders

With the aim of helping the female riders soon approach the prestigious race Formula 1 (F1) in the future. A new sports car race of Formula 3 (F3) system for the weak has just been launched and will officially roll in the middle of next year.


This new W Series mainly uses the 1.8-liter Tatuus-F3 racing car and will kick off in May 2016, free for between 18 and 20 female riders to register for the competition. Racers will have to undergo thorough testing, evaluation and training programs before officially entering the competition.

The total value of the prize will be up to 1.5 million USD, in which the champion will receive 500 thousand USD and the corresponding bonus levels will be spread evenly to the driver ranked 18th in the final.

According to the organizers, there will be about six racing races spanning about 30 minutes each of the top European races, most of which have organized F1 races. In addition, the organizers also plan to expand the tournament to the Americas, Asia and Australia in the future. The W Series will receive support from Technical Director Adrian Newey of the famous Red Bull Racing team in charge of coaching, with mentors coming from former F1 driver David Coulthard.

The F3 is often considered to be the start of the sports racing industry for young riders, before entering the higher levels of the F2 and finally the prestigious F1 track. No female racer has ever played in the F1 tournament since 1976, but with the launch of W Series, organizers expect to provide a platform for female riders to develop skills, before joining. Equally compete with men at higher levels in the most exciting speed sport in the world.

Since the F1 tournament officially kicked off in 1950, Italian racer Maria Teresa De Filippis became the first woman to ever play fair with fellow men in an F1 race, when she finished with the position at the Belgian Grand Prix in 1958.

No female racer has ever won a single point in F1, although after Teresa De Filippis, compatriot Lella Lombardi had a half-point in the Spanish Grand Prix in 1975. Perhaps Lombardi could have There was 1 point when finishing the race in 6th place, but the race was forced to stop after 29 rounds due to an unexpected accident and the riders were only awarded 0.5 points. A total of female riders born in 1941 attended 12 races from 1974 to 1976.

Two decades after Lombardi’s last F1 race, three female riders Divina Galica (England), Desire Wilson (South Africa) and Giovanna Amati (Italy) all tried the race to classify the Grand Prix, but all are not eligible to enter the main race. And 22 years have passed after the last time Amati ever competed in the Brazilian Grand Prix in 1992, the new sports car race saw the participation of women in the test stages, with runners Susie Wolff tried to run in four stages in 2014 and 2015.

Juju Noda – the youngest F1 car racer in history

Physical training sports are hobbies and passion of many people, both male and female.


However, high-risk sports seem like only men being brave to complete the race. But Japanese girl, 11 years old, Juju Noda is the first child car racer in the world to drive a standard Formula 1 FIA racing car.

Juju Noda (11 years old) is considered the first child car racer in the world to participate in the Formula 1 FIA racing car. She is the youngest athlete to sign a professional racing contract with special privileges. But she is still not old enough to join the track until she is 16 years old.

Local tournament commentators commented that her talent was extraordinary and rare. So what about her makes others curious and interested. Therefore, when asked what her future goal is, Juju did not hesitate and immediately replied: “I want to win F1 racing (Formula 1) and be the first girl to do it.”

Maybe Juju’s talent and speed of passion inherited from his father, Mr. Hideki Noda. Her father is also an F1 driver, discovered and encouraged by the girl very early, he helped her to participate and break the record of Formula 4 racing at Okayama International Racecourse with time is 1 minute 32.8 seconds, in U17 category.

2

No one expected a girl who weighed less than 30kg to drive a race car with a mass of 4 times body weight. Previously, Juju cried because it was not strong enough and endured to drive. But Juju took it as a stepping stone to a long step forward. After all, since he was 3 years old, Juju tried driving a small race car, and more recently, she won almost every race she attended. Therefore, when asked to participate in the F4 race, Juju did not miss this opportunity.

In the unofficial F4 race in the recent U17 category, Juju defeated two other riders older than her. But things were only at the beginning when her father wanted her to continue her natural talent at a higher level, racing cars F3 (Formula 3) at the end of 2017. Naturally, to raise a level Higher requires Juju to work harder.

Although there are remarkable achievements, Juju is not complacent and continues to focus on his path. The idol and rival she always wanted to compete with was Lance Stroll – an 18-year-old Canadian F1 driver. Stroll athletes are champions F4 and F3 before reaching the current F1 champion. And that’s the way that Juju is right for her to pursue.

F1 racing and 10-year challenge

Robert Kubica has gone on a long journey since injury in 2011 and has only one month left until he officially returns to the track in Melbourne, Australia.


The F1 racing world has changed a lot since he last ran on the F1 in Abu Dhabi 2010, and there are many things fans will feel really alien.

Kubica finished fifth in the final race of the season more than 8 years ago, in the most memorable day of Sebastian Vettel’s career,when he won to become the youngest champion (23 years old 134 day). The German driver then ran for Red Bull to overcome other stunned names such as veteran teammates Mark Webber, Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) and Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) and crowned.

F1

At the same time, Hamilton was only crowned in the 2008 season and is in the fifth year unable to be championed by the dominance of Vettel and Red Bull. But at the end of March at Albert Park, Kubica will stand with the same team who has 4 championships and the other is completely mastering F1 in the last 2 years with the power named Mercedes.

In the last 2 years, a total of 10 teams competed inthe tournament even a few years ago when there were 24 cars competing in F1 races with the appearance of teams like Virgin, HRT and Lotus. Lotus is Renault at the present time.

F1

In 2010 there was a racing squad consisting of Jarno Trulli (Italy) and Heikki Kovalainen (Finland), Virgin, the predecessor of Manor Marussia, including Timo Glock (Germany) and Lucas di Grassi (currently running at Formula E) while the team The Spanish HRT race uses five different names in the same season: Karun Chandhok, Sakon Yamamoto, Christian Klien,Bruno Senna and Sakon Yamamoto.

F1

All three teams used Cosworth’s engines that season and were the only ones who could not score any points during the season. Moreover, they have not survived for a long time in the history of F1 when they were isolated after only a few years. Virgin has been transformed into Manor since 2015, but only 2 years before its withdrawal, Lotus has returned to Renault in 2016 and HRT has ended its journey since 2012.

MotoGP racing: Ducati follows Ferrari to launch “new steed”

If F1 fans will have to wait for another 2 weeks until the teams announce the new season, then at MotoGP, all have started for 2019.


This year Ducati is the first name offering with a completely new look and hope to be able to win for the first time in a decade.

From now until the start of the season at Losail Racecourse, Qatar, there are many milestones associated with the pre-season events of MotoGP. In addition to the tests, four factory teams and the new racing team appear this year, SIC Racing in the highest form will also hold its own new models. Ducati are the starters, followed by the Honda champions, then the SIC, Yamaha at the beginning of February and finally the KTM.

Ducati held a solemn ceremony at the Philip Morris R&D Cube building in the city of Neuchatel, Switzerland. They are not a name too strange in the racing car when they appeared on popular McLaren cars in the 1990s (with Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna) and then Ferrari in the glorious years with Michael Schumacher.

Philip Morris did not just sponsor F1, but they were the ones who helped the teams at MotoGP or IndyCar win the championship. Therefore, the brand “Mission Winnow”was born and appeared in the Ferrari SF70-H since the Japanese marathon GP October 2018.

And Ducati, another Italian team, will follow the “war horse” to get the main sponsor from the 2019 season. Present at the premiere was new driver Danilo Petrucci and Andrea Dovizioso, CEO Claudio Domenicali and head of the Gigi Dall’lgna racing team. The Desmosedici this year still has the main red color but is highlighted more boldly.

This is the first time since 2009 Ducati received funding from a tobacco brand. Audi Sports will also appear for the first time on the tires of Desmosedici GP19. In addition, we can see familiar names like Lenovo, Shell or Riello.

Ducati entered the next season with the task of finding the first racer since Casey Stoner was crowned in 2007. Dovizioso has had the most recent two successful seasons, but still lacks a bit to be able to beat Marc Marquez. With the emergence of’new wind’ called Petrucci, Ducati will certainly be able to make a difference with direct competitors, especially when Jorge Lorenzo will race alongside Marquez at Honda.

Dovi’s 2019 goal will still be to compete for the personal championship and he continues to team up with racing engineer Alberto Giribuola. Meanwhile Petrucci will bring engineer Daniele Romagnoli from Pramac Racing to Ducati to continue working together, meaning that Lorenzo’s former technical team (headed by Mr.Cristian Gabarrini) will come back to Pramac to coordinate with rookie Francesco Bagnaia.

Ducati’s sporting director is confident that besides the two Italian drivers in the main team, the team will still have two quality replacements from Pramac, Jack Miller and Bagnaia, who are always ready to take on the task. Therefore, Petrucci will have to make a lot of effort when his contract only lasts for 1year, and there is no guarantee for the current position in 2020. But he is still confident he can keep the position and not in a hurry to think about the future.

Pave The Way For The Weaker Faction To Attend The Fierce F1 Race

The W Series racing race was established only for female riders scheduled to start in May, 2011 with the goal of helping the weak race to compete with men in Formula 1 racing (F1).


According to Reuters, a new female car racing, just kicked off on October 10 and supported by former F1 cyclist David Coulthard and leading designer Adrian Newey. This tournament is aimed at helping female riders to participate in F1 racing.

No female racer has competed in F1 since 1976, but the W Series organizers hope to provide a platform for female riders to develop their skills before attempting to compete in high-level racing. more than just for men (F1). The prize will have a prize fund of up to 1.5 million USD, and free participation for 18 to 20 excellent riders selected through the test and evaluation sections.

The driver who wins the final race will receive $500,000,while all ranked racers from 1 to 18 have a bonus. According to Reuters, the organizers are expected to hold 30-minute races at the top European racetracks,most of which used to be the former F1 track, suitable for the 1.8-engine F3 racing car. l. In the coming seasons there will be series extending to the Americas, Asia and Australia.

Reuters quoted the organizer as saying: “The core of W Series is the firm belief that women can compete equally with men in racing sports”. However, a women’s tournament is necessary to motivate female riders to participate more.

The idea of ​​motor racing for women is not new but has been controversial in the past, when top female riders insist that they want to compete with male riders rather than in a dedicated race for girl. The Spanish racer Carmen Jorda caused a storm last year when she supported the organization of a weak-only tournament on the grounds that women are physically disadvantaged and cannot compete equally with men in the top league.

Claire Williams – Williams Formula One vice president, said this year that a tournament for female riders will be “a step back”. However, Coulthard said that female riders tend to reach F3, which often lacks funding. He thinks there is no reason why women cannot compete with men at all levels.

Mở đường cho phái yếu tham dự giải đua xe F1 khốc liệt - ảnh 3

No female racer has scored in F1, although Italian driver Lella Lombardi has scored half a point at the 1975 Spanish Grand Prix, and onlytwo female riders have ever joined the race since Lombardi took part in the 12 races from 1974 and 1976. The closest female rider who was planning to join the race was Italian racer Giovanna Amati, but she did not qualify for the 1992 qualifiers.

In June, Saudi Arabian racing driver Aseel Al Hamad drove his 2012 Lotus F1 around the Paul Ricard track in Le Castelle before the French Grand Prix to mark women in the kingdom allowed to drive on the street.
