Jarno Trulli Movie Rating: 5 / 5
Lewis Hamilton’s opponents are hoping that he brings his precious 1967 AC Cobra to the Circuit de Catalunya this Sunday as they have seen him driving it around California in these past few weeks. Hamilton dominating his opponents is an understatement. He did no less than act as a tyrant in the practice sessions. The other teams are a little distressed because of the superiority of Mercedes.
Stefano Domencali of Ferrari, just last month fell on his sword and they have not been victorious at all in the past year. Fernando Alonso’s last victory happened to be in 12 May 2013. Sebastian Vettel was unable to participate in the practice sessions on Friday thanks to faulty wiring that morning. McLaren was close to surrendering the championship because of the comment made by Jenson Button, where he said that it would be hard for any team to win the Grand Prix this year against Mercedes.
Thanks to F1’s coming back to Europe, it has provided the opportunity to the teams to install upgrade packages in their cars. There have been four races so far, of which Mercedes as won all. They’re game is strong this year and the other teams are disarrayed. Mercedes has way too much potential this year.
The only likely strong enough opponent to Mercedes will be Red Bull because their car looks amazing, even more so than Mercedes. However, the downside is that the Renault engine is just not good enough. Though they are making progress they still lag behind Mercedes. They are frustrated but they are doing the best they can to make a possible win. Even Renault has been under great pressure due to the fact that many teams have been late in their payments as well as some other issues which were termed classified.
