After two races in 2015, Ferrari is happy with its driver line-up. Having struggled alongside Fernando Alonso last year, Kimi Raikkonen went into the last year of his current contract in 2015 admitting he is not sure if he will still be wearing red next season. But so far, although Alonso’s successor Sebastian Vettel has the upper hand after two...

Fernando Alonso insists his first race with McLaren-Honda went better than expected. Earlier in Malaysia, the Spaniard told reporters he would prefer not to let the world know what his real thoughts were when he watched on television the woeful progress of his new team at the Melbourne opener. At the same time, his former team Ferrari is riding a...

Roberto Merhi is having to keep his options open even after making his grand prix debut on Sunday. For now, the rookie Spaniard is part of the resurrected former Marussia team, Manor, having travelled to Australia and Malaysia in the race driver role. After the troubles of Melbourne, Merhi finally made his F1 debut on Sunday, while teammate Will Stevens...

Although disappointed, Toto Wolff had to chuckle late on Sunday when asked if Malaysia signalled the “end of an era” in formula one. Although it was somewhat of a jibe at his former teammate Daniel Ricciardo and team Red Bull, Sebastian Vettel observed that his win for Ferrari was arguably the “first time Mercedes got beaten fair and square” in...

Wolff hopes Malaysia stops equalisation ‘nonsense’http://theformula1.com/f1-news/wolff-hopes-malaysia-stops-equalisation-nonsense.html http://theformula1.com/f1-news/wolff-hopes-malaysia-stops-equalisation-nonsense.html#comments Sun, 29 Mar 2015 10:21:34 +0000 http://theformula1.com/?p=21410

Toto Wolff on Sunday said he hopes Ferrari’s breakthrough win stops the “nonsense” talk about equalisation. After Australia, Red Bull threatened to quit F1 over Mercedes’ huge supremacy amid the current engine regulations, arguing that only artificial “equalisation” mechanisms can fix the sport’s broken show. But just two weeks later in Malaysia, Sebastian Vettel beat both silver cars in just...

Lewis Hamilton was second and team-mate Nico Rosberg was third ahead of Kimi Raikkonen, who fought his way back from an early puncture. The McLarens of Alonso and Jenson Button both retired. The performance of Ferrari and Vettel was...

Toto Wolff on Saturday played down suggestions the tension between Mercedes’ drivers could be set to reignite. During qualifying at Sepang, Lewis Hamilton was momentarily delayed when he had to pass his slow-moving teammate on the inside of a corner. Reportedly, the reigning world champion complained afterwards on the radio. On British television BBC, former driver David Coulthard agreed that...

McLaren-Honda’s all-champion driver lineup is putting a brave face on its situation. As in Australia, the two MP4-30s were due to line up dead last on the grid in Malaysia. The only cars slower around Sepang are the Manors, who were outside the minimum 107 per cent qualifying time. Those cars would only race “at the stewards’ discretion”, read a...
