Mercedes got the new F1 V6 formula sorted right out of the box. However, from time to time, they did falter, and in 2014, Red Bull and Williams took full advantage of that, snagging victories and poles from the Brackley-based team. However, at least based on the performance in Malaysia, Ferrari seem to be that team this year.

Both Hamilton and Rosberg got brilliant starts, but Rosberg couldn’t go anywhere as Vettel squeezed him right towards the pitwall. The trio pulled away from the rest of the pack, whilst there was a whole slew of contact, damaged front wings and punctured tyres. Raikkonen, for the second race in a row, has had to make an early pitstop to repair contact damage. At the end of lap 1, the Sauber of Nasr hit the rear of Raikkonen’s SF15-T, causing a puncture which dropped him to last place. The carcass also ended up tearing huge chunks out of the rear floor of his Ferrari. Raikkonen did end up finishing fourth, a brilliant recovery drive indeed.

Marcus Ericsson spun and got beached in the gravel at turn 1, causing the safety car to be deployed. This gave the cars with lap 1 problems, Raikkonen included, a chance to catch up to the rest of the pack. Mercedes took a gamble, and boxed both cars for a switch to the primes. However, because their pitbox is at the start of the pitlane, both cars were held up, with Rosberg losing up to 8 seconds in the pits. Mercedes’ strategy was to use the primes till lap 30+, before both cars would stop again for fresh primes. Track position wasn’t on hand though, as the Mercs were stuck in P5 and P8. It took them awhile to climb back up to a podium position due to traffic.

Supercars and performance cars are going the way of dinosaurs it seems. In a brave new world where big engines are being viewed as an evil excess, the supercar seems like an extravagance. The industry is rapidly responding to this paradigm shift for the greater consumer majority. V12s are being reduced to V8s and V8s to V6s. Forced induction is turning into electrical conduction.

Even Porsche has taken to equipping its new flagship supercar, the 918 Spyder with a hybrid drive. But does going green really have to mean giving up our love for the seductive side of motoring? BMW believes that performance and green motoring can co-exist in the 21st century and the BMW i8 is the product of that belief.

To prove that performance cars can co...

The all-new Jaguar XF was revealed during a dramatic ‘high-wire’ water crossing in the heart of London’s business district. Expert British stunt man Jim Dowdall, veteran of Hollywood movies including Bond, Bourne and Indiana Jones, drove the all-new Jaguar XF 240 meters across a high-wire to demonstrate the new XF’s lightweight aluminium-intensive construction. The new XF is 80kgs lighter than its closest competitor, resulting in best-in-class efficiency and CO2.
