After leading every session of every day Charles Leclerc got a mediocre start and lost out to team-mate Vettel. After the race it was released that after Vettel got ahead of the Monegasque driver Ferrari told him to remain behind the 4 time world champion for at least 2 laps... thankfully Leclerc ignored these orders and overtook into turn one. After the round of pitstops, in which Ricciardo and Hamilton went onto a sub-optimal strategy, while it didnt have a significant effect of Hamilton's race, Ricciardo was like a sitting duck after his tyres had degraded. On lap 56 it was BOOM time for the Renault engines, Hulkenberg... BOOM, Ricciardo... BOOM Sainz...BOOM! Unfortunately, one of the most likablen drivers on the grid suffered a decrease in power causing both of the Mercedes to cruise past while Leclerc watched his dream of his first win drift away... so sad!
Mikkel completed the VLN 1 race at the Nurburgring at the weekend (23/24th march) and during an interview with F1.Capital he told us that "the team played two different strategies on our cars and it turned out that the one for the sister car was better". It was also Mikkel's first time driving a GT3 car around the Nordschleife, "i lost some time in the traffic, the team knows that im new and its a learning process to prepare me for the 24 hours [race]", Mikkel told us. The team finished P3 after starting on pole and "under the circumstances [i'm] more than happy with P3 my first time around [however] usually i wouldnt be satisfied with 3rd after fighting for the lead for the lead for the majority of the race". Overall Mikkel believes it is "perfect preperation for the 24hr [race]". GP Capital and F1 Capital will be bringing updates for the VLN3 race in April.
After a strong performance at the first Indycar race at the Circuit Of The America’s Colton Herta won in just his first season of Indycar. The son of the legend Bryan Herta took control of the race after an incident in which Félix Frovenqvist‘s race was ended after he was punted into in turn 19, where drivers were allowed to run ridiculously wide. The yellow flags meant that Will Power, who had lead every lap after securing pole, lost his significant gap to cars behind and when things couldng get any worse... he stalled it in the pits. Yup! After a flawless weekend on course to winning $100,000 as a prize, Power watched his prize money dissapear before his eyes! Former 2nd place man Alexander Rossi also dropped down due to the yellow flags and finished in 9th.
