Hamilton returns to drive his spade in Austin


Lewis Hamilton achieved his victory number 50 in Formula 1 ahead of Nico Rosberg and Daniel Ricciardo, in a race in which the Spanish pilots were the ones who got the spicy and the show, with the permission of the failures of Verstappen and Ferrari Kimi Räikkönen.

Alonso and Sainz lived a fight between good friends, which ended with the spaniard in a brilliant fifth position and madrid in a sixth square that equals its best historical results in the Formula 1 that already got in Montmeló.

New: Hamilton goes well

news Lewis Hamilton went well, though not so much his companion Nico Rosberg which was surpassed by Daniel Ricciardo in the first round. In the output there was the first moment of tension between the Spanish, and Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso is touched though without major consequences. Who had the most problems was Sergio Perez, who did not hesitate to criticize Daniil Kvyat the cry of “go you idiot” by embestirle. The most affected was Nico Hülkenberg, that by a touch with Valtteri Bottas had to leave, in addition to cause a puncture to the own pilot of Williams.

strategic warfare between Red Bull and Mercedes started very soon. Nico Rosberg gambled on tyres means to endure more than anyone on the track, while Lewis Hamilton rode soft on the first stop. Daniel Ricciardo not led him to enter before to the pits to make the undercut, and Hamilton endured without major difficulties first.

Error and abandonment of Verstappen

In the second pit stops turned the tables. Red Bull again to be a protagonist, first by Daniel Ricciardo and later by Max Verstappen. The australian rode on medium tyres, trying to get to the final, while the young Dutch pifió to enter without warning to his mechanics, who were not prepared.

This ruling, which already made him lose a lot of time, it was nothing compared to what would happen next: the Renault engine (Tag Heuer) in his Red Bull began to backfire, until he failed to stop at the bottom of an escape. The Dutch caused, unintentionally, a change in the positions above, as both Hamilton as Rosberg and Ricciardo came into the pits to fit new tyres, but the Red bulls lost the second place in this impasse.

Ferrari turns to make the ridiculous

When we were stabilizing the positions, Kimi Räikkönen came to make his third pit stop to try to settle your ‘top 5’, but the mechanic of the rear tire right is not put well the wheel, was attached to the gun and forced him to stop at the bottom of the pit lane. The reaction of the Finnish, very angry, was back in the pitlane, an action very dangerous, before retreating with gestures of a few friends.

One of the consequences of this neglect was that Carlos Sainz clinched the fifth position, who had to fight to dog face for nearly 15 laps with Felipe Massa to his wheel, while Fernando Alonso was trying to hold the seventh position.

Sainz and Alonso crushed Massa

The fight Sainz resist to Massa, while at the same time, looked through the mirrors to see if Alonso will hunting put spice to the end of the race in front was already very defined. Hamilton, Rosberg and Ricciardo did not see the jeopardy his podium in no time, and with this order, while Vettel was rolling out fourth in no-man’s land.

The fight between the fifth and the seventh are defined in a key moment: Massa tried to dive toward Sainz in one of the curves most likely to advance, but slipped and left a good flat in your tire. This fact forced him to roll a few laps in the least aggressive, while the spaniard picked up a bit of air.

Both relaxed Massa that allowed a Alonso that had smelled blood cogiese, first, and adelantase (to the touch), after. The Spanish complained that the brazilian had closed the door fully to justify the coup that occurred, and ended with an investigation of ‘post-race’.

Everything pointed to that the fight was going to be there, but Alonso had already come up and did not hesitate to go for his pupil. Sainz was not much he could do before his good friend, who threw herself to death to win the fifth and, with the cry of “YEEEHA!” showed that they had a lot of fun. Despite this slight disappointment for carlos Sainz, this remains his best result in Formula 1.

in The end, victory for a Lewis Hamilton that sum already five in u.s. territory, and that cuts off seven points in the general Nico Rosberg, second. Daniel Ricciardo completed the podium, but the heroes of the day were the flag rojigualda.
