F1 racing: Hamilton waits for the chance to win the 6th title

The victory in the Russian race helped Lewis Hamilton get closer to the 6th world championship, which could help him reach the goal of leveling the legendary record of Michael Schumacher 7 times.


Currently, the British driver is 73 points ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas and 130 points to run for the last 5 races of the season. Each stage win is worth 25 points and it also earns points for any driver in the top 10 and for the fastest lap run. The order of the scores for the first 10 finishers is in turn: 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1.

Hamilton will not be able to win the championship in the next race in Japan because the maximum distance he can reach with teammates is 99 points while there are still 104 points that Bottas can achieve in the following 4 races. But the opportunity is closer to Hamilton than in the two races immediately followed by the Mexican Grand Prix and the US Grand Prix.

Counting back the previous victories, Hamilton had the same score with Bottas even when the Finnish driver won every race, meaning that his teammates would always have to finish with more points if they wanted to enter the enemy world. Take a look back to the 2018 season.

At the Mexcio race, he needs to get a lead of 78 points or more. In the US leg, he only needs to lead 52 points or more. And so on, he will only need to lead 27 points after the penultimate race in Brazil ended. It is hard to imagine that until the last stage, the world champion is determined.

Hamilton has overtaken Bottas in 10 of the last 12 races so it is likely that he will also finish before the team in Suzuka. He will need a points gap greater than 6 in the next two races if he wants to win the championship in Mexico. He won the world title at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in 2017 and 2018 but this season there was a position swap with the track in Austin, USA. Austin promoters had hoped the change would increase Hamilton’s chances of winning the title in the United States – what he did in 2015 – but the change could have the opposite effect.

The Mercedes team driver is currently ranked second in the list of world champions of all time, ranking with the world champion Juan Manuel Fangio 5 times. A sixth title will help him take second place, meaning that only one more time, Hamilton will equal Schumacher’s record, and further than breaking the record of his predecessors. The Russian Grand Prix is ​​the 82nd championship of Hamilton’s racing career.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
