Spanish GP – Analisys

Mon, 11 May 2015, 12:14

Nico Rosberg gave no chance to the opponents and won the Spanish GP making the so-called hat-trick (pole position, best lap and win).

The old Rosberg finally resurfaced, but how important is it for the championship?

Well, because despite the updates Ferrari has not evolved enough to beat Mercedes on the track (and I wrote before: if they did not have a good performance in Barcelona Italians could forget the title fight) the only option we’ll do not see Hamilton champion with great anticipation is now in the hands of the German driver.

Mercedes was so superior that even with a three stops strategy Hamilton had no trouble beating Vettel and Raikkonen, while the latter fought but failed to take the fourth place of Valtteri Bottas.

Unfortunately, Spain showed what the championship will present from now on, with exciting disputes relegated to intermediate teams.

It’s not the first time we saw it in F1 and will not be the last. Dominant teams simply appears times to times and to the others the only things are empty promises, dreams and eventually a chance to win something better. It was so in the 1980s with McLaren, with Williams in 1990s and 2000s with Ferrari. Then came the Red Bull and now we have the Mercedes. Simple like that.

To the real fans of F1, Rosberg contest versus Hamilton should be sufficient, if it continues.

Still will remain a possible evolution of McLaren-Honda, the saga Renault / RBR / STR, the survival of the Manor, the raptures of Maldonado and the talent of Max Verstappen.

Who does not prepare for it, should chant the sacred mantra: boring, boring, boring!
