Why did Lewis Hamilton announce he could break up with F1?

This salary is up to 5 million pounds (150 billion) higher than the amount that Hamilton is receiving at Mercedes.

Lewis Hamilton easily finished first in the Belgian GP

F1 champion Lewis Hamilton outstripped teammate Mercedes Valtteri Bottas to finish first on the Spa-Francorchamps race on August 30.

Hamilton completed 44 laps in 1 hour 24 minutes 08,761 seconds and was 8.448 seconds faster than runner-up Valtteri Bottas. This parameter does not fully show the superiority of British riders. Only thanks to the appearance of safety cars, while Hamilton focused on keeping the tires in the final stage, did Bottas not fall too far behind in Catalunya two weeks ago.

Winning 89 in F1 career helped Hamilton close to the record 91 first leg of the legendary Michael Schumacher. He also removed 48 and 50 points from his main opponents, Max Verstappen and teammate Bottas. If he can maintain his current form, Hamilton will soon win this season a few races ahead.

Hamilton finished first at Spa-Francorchamps was the predicted outcome when his qualifying round performance showed the British driver’s W11 was faster than Bottas’s by more than 0.5 seconds per lap. Although Bottas started right behind his teammates, Bottas could not intimidate the first place, and control of the race was entirely in Hamilton’s hands. Bottas almost became an obstacle to Verstappen, rather than a threat to his English teammate.

Hamilton easily outstripped teammate Bottas

There were a number of developments that seemed to change the course of the race. Antonio Giovinazzi lost control of the Les Fagnes curve, dragging George Rusell into an accident and gave up, making the car safety deployed in lap 11. But the order in the first group did not disturb too much. At the end of the race, the risk of rain appearing or Hamilton complaining about the right front tire did not pose a threat to the top.

Sebastian Vettel was even surpassed easily by his former teammate – old general Kimi Raikkonen (Alfa Romeo), so he only finished 13th. Prodigy Charles Leclerc was even worse when he only finished 14th despite starting on teammates. The disastrous 2-pit strategy caused the Monaco driver to struggle in the last group before he could climb to 14th in the last seconds. Most likely the two SF1000s will continue to have embarrassing performances on the Monza home track next week.

Hamilton won the pole at the Spanish Grand Prix

British F1 driver Lewis Hamilton defeated his teammate Valtteri Bottas in the qualifying round on August 15, to win the starting right on the Catalunya race.

Not only won the pole at the Spanish GP, previously, Lewis Hamilton also won GP Styrian.

The 1 minute 15,584 second result performed by Hamilton was only 0.059 seconds faster than Bottas’s performance. Red Bull Max Verstappen star was left behind for 0.708 seconds but still easily won the right to start third, just ahead of Sergio Perez – Racing Point racer who returned after two stops due to coronavirus infection.

Ferrari continued to have a pretty bad starting record with Charles Leclerc starting only ninth, two places ahead of teammate Sebastian Vettel.

Catalunya first held the F1 race in mid-August instead of the usual May. The racing teams continued to struggle with hot weather, the track surface temperature sometimes reached 47 degrees Celsius, making tire retention still an important issue for the teams.

The first two qualifying rounds (Q1 and Q2) were not a big surprise except that Vettel continued to be eliminated early from Q2, although Ferrari changed the chassis to overcome difficulties for him from this stage.

The German driver almost entered Q3 when he was less than 10th place with 0.002 seconds. The 15 riders in Q2 all used soft tires for the best performance, except for the old general Kimi Raikkonen who used the medium tire.

Major developments of the Spanish Grand Prix 2020

By Q3, Bottas appeared on the track with soft tires earlier than his teammates and achieved 1 minute 15,643 seconds in the first run to temporarily take the first place. But Hamilton quickly climbed to No. 1 when he achieved impressive results 1 minute 15,584 seconds.

Verstappen only reached 1 minute 16,292 seconds and temporarily took third place. Meanwhile, after the first run, Leclerc ranked seventh with the result of 1 minute 17,297 seconds.

In the second run of Q3, Bottas continued to run ahead of Hamilton, but the Finnish driver’s 1-minute 15,659 result still lacked his personal achievement in the first run. It seems that the surface quality of the track has deteriorated, so Hamilton and Verstappen have not improved their achievements and the final top 3 order remains the same as the first run.

The McLaren duo improved their results in the second run, causing Leclerc to drop to ninth place, starting just before Pierre Gasly (Alpha Tauri). Carlos Sainz’s achievement was 0.04 seconds faster than his teammate, Lando Norris also surpassed only 0.003 seconds above Leclerc.

Norris overtakes Stroll

After that, Valtteri Bottas and Albon took advantage of the power of the W11 and RB16 to surpass Sainz, taking third and fourth place. At this moment Verstappen was sandwiched between two Mercedes cars. These three cars sped up and left the middle group behind.

By the 24th round, Verstappen entered the pit and replaced the normal tire, leaving the pit in third place. Three rounds later, Hamilton also entered the pit and still stood on the Red Bull racer. Bottas pointed to the pit then seven rounds, to return to third place.

Attractive chase begins from Perez. He passed Sainz one by one, defeated his Stroll teammate at Turn 4, then slipped past Ricciardo. After that, Racing Point‘s main driver continuously created the fastest lap to get close to Albon. Many times he tried to surpass Thai riders, but failed.

In the first group, Verstappen was gradually narrowed by Bottas. In the Turn 4 round 66, Verstappen was overcome by the Finnish driver, but reclaimed his position at the next corner. A round later, Bottas overtook and this time Verstappen no longer defended his position.

Lewis Hamilton won the first place

Dropping on P3, the Dutch racer enters a soft tire changing pit to earn the fastest-lap score. But when he left the pit, he ran into the last group. The plan is broken.

After the first two races, Bottas still leads with 43 points, six points more than Hamilton. Norris remained third with 26 points, leaving Leclerc eight points away. The next race took place in Hungary on July 19.

Ferrari was still in crisis when Charles Leclerc bumped into Sebastian Vettel in the first round, causing both to give up. F1 is only attractive for the race in the middle group, with McLaren and Racing Point.

Hamilton won convincingly

Once again Lando Norris became the focus, with the sprint sprinting at the final lap. McLaren’s 20-year-old driver competes Daniel Ricciardo and Lance Stroll for sixth place, with only two laps remaining in the race.

Norris passed Ricciardo in round 70, then left Stroll in round 71. Enlist Sergio Perez’s accident when trying to cross Alexander Albon, Norris took Perez’s P5 at the last corner. The second leg in a row Lando Norris showed the ability to speed up in the last round after he went on the podium in the first race.

Lewis Hamilton took the first place on Styrian GP stage

Perez may regret it when he is competing for fourth place to fall to P6 again. The Mexican racer came in at 17 but kept going to take P5. But after the accident, Perez even nearly lost sixth place. He was still selected as the “Best Racer”.

Norris’ teammate Carlos Sainz – was unlucky, despite starting in third. His pit time took 7.2 seconds, more than double the average. The reason is that Sainz’s left-hand rear-wheeler employee does a bad job. Ferrari’s future driver finished the race in ninth place, awarded an extra point with the fastest-lap.
