Grand Prix of Japan to 2016: race Results

GP de JapónStarts the GP of Japan Formula 1 in 2016, with some lights and some shadows. As for the Spanish representation, many shadows, as both riders have finished in a few positions behind as it was time that we did not see. The lights have certainly been the Red Bull (and the aggressiveness of Verstappen) and Nico Rosberg, who now has almost everything done to win the world cup this year and become the new champion of F1. As for what to Max, is what we want to see fans, always and when do not ruin the career of anyone or causing a serious accident…

Hamilton lost nearly all of his options of the world in the race last due to his engine, but now with the not so good performance in this circuit has now been completed with the options of the world, to not be that Rosberg will break in the following races and Hamilton can earn the points lost, but that is something that is unlikely and should not happen. The own Niki Lauda has admitted that it did not believe that Lewis can reach these heights and due to the indentation of points to his team-mate.

Carlos Sainz Jr. GP de Canadá 2016Come with Carlos Sainz Jr., it seems that the last few races of the world will atragantan the Toro Rosso, either by the characteristics or rather because it seems that that spark that they had at the start of the season, surpassing even his older brothers Red Bull has come to be less as we have been repeating in the last few races. The spaniard has been able to be 17, a position nothing good and far from the points, and behind his team-mate Daniil Kvyat, who has achieved the 13th position.

In terms of our other representations, Fernando Alonso, the McLaren-Honda, on Honda’s home, have not given to more than a 16th in the case of the wealthy, and a 18th for Jenson Button. A few positions short of what is expected (Top5 if you made it a good rating) before hitting the circuit nippon. I sincerely believe that is a mirage because here we have had some big problems with the tyres in fast corners and with the configuration (setup). I hope it’s a bit of a fad and that Honda include some power enhancements in the engine, and not only the reliability…

Next appointment in Austin, interesting career where I was expected to also Button had the new Honda… Maybe with the performance improvements also (those 3 tokens they still have)? I don’t know, and I don’t even know yet if they are going to use this season. It gives Me the feeling that they don’t, hope I’m wrong. The house of Honda has received their guests with a jug of cold water, as last year. The japanese have two ways of dealing with these results, or as a great disappointment or as a great motivation to know that they have to strive more than what you are already doing. The japanese culture tends not to be a friend of the surrender and we’ve all seen how they have recovered from major disasters… In 2017 there will be light!
