Lewis Hamilton wasted no time in asserting himself in Italian Grand Prix practice on Friday with the Mercedes driver lapping more than half a second quicker than anyone else at the fastest track on the calendar.
India-born Monisha Kaltenborn, the first ever woman Team Principal of a Formula One team, today said it was sad that Indian Grand Prix would not be part of the 2014 calender since it was a "great event".
India’s first Formula 1 driver Narain Karthikeyan had been left in a blind alley by HRT when it shut shop after the 2012 season and finding that he could not land a drive in 2013, he soon found his way into Auto GP. Lo and behold, he is now in with a chance of grabbing the title after his double podium finish at Mugello, Italy, last week.
Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton is hoping that the new tyres Pirelli is going to introduce starting with the Hungarian GP would give him a favourable advantage, with the star lashing out at the management once again after failing in his pursuit of victory at the German Grand Prix, where he started from pole position.
Lewis Hamilton has apologised for an embarrassing confusion, which led to him to accuse McLaren teammate Jensen Button for showing disrespect by un-following him on Twitter, only to find out later that he never followed him.
