Congratulations mate, Lewis Hamilton the 2014 Formula One World Champion!!
I have been following the Formula One from some year now, it was like I keep an eye on it, I knew what was happening but I wasn’t as involved as I’ve been this past season, but every year my interest grow until I finally gave up, now I have both eyes on it and I couldn’t be happier!
For many people racing could be boring, cars going around and around, but I find it very interesting, like other sports disciplines it’s also about skills, strategies and in this case engines, and of course all the drama that sometimes and more than what people think surround the drivers, teams or the Formula One itself, it happens every year, which I find fascinating!
The season is over, at the end it was a great one , it stared with the realization that Mercedes- Benz’s cars were as the media called them superior comparing to the rest of the cars, so everyone thought it was going to be a predictable season and that they probably would win all races, which they almost did, with the exception of three that were won by red Bull drivers, the rest were for Mercedes’ drivers overall they ended up wining the F1 Constructors’ Championship …
Contrary to everyone’s’ believes it turned out to be very entertaining, mostly thanks to the rivalry between both Mercedes’ drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg it was so intense at times, especially because of their history, friends for a long time until the fight for the title got in between of their friendship. For many their relationship will never be the same again…
Hamilton got to Abu Dhabi in a better position he needed to win or finish second to become the champion, Rosberg had it a bit more complicated he needed to win and then wait for Lewis to finish third or lower. All this was the perfect set up to define the championship in the last race, the last battle, it was supposed to be like the battle of the two towers… -Yes another LOTR reference.. I’m obsess with them!!-…
All started very promising, when Hamilton passed Rosberg right at the beginning of the race and then we all listened to Rosberg talking to his tea through their radio that his car was having electric problems, and from that moment the battle of the two towers was over, donzo…Well, we all know what happened later, as Hamilton said it, he had the best day of his life!!
Eventhough, Rosberg was not able to challenge Hamilton in that last race Felipe Massa with Williams put up a good fight, at the end it was fun to watch… so now it time to wait and see all the moves between drivers, cars and teams and see how they will get ready for the 2015 season!!
