2014 FIA Formula One : Mercedes dominance?


It’s the 2014 FIA Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend and have we already witnessed a dominance for Mercedes this season?

With the build up to Petronas this weekend, the talk is already that Mercedes are goint to take some catching and as statements of intent go, the Australian win was a massive one!!

Rosberg won the Australian Grand Prix by 25 seconds without ever having to extend himself, and a new era of Formula 1 began as most of the paddock had expected it would even before setting off for Melbourne.

For a year or more, the word had been that Mercedes were ahead of their rivals when it came to the development of the new turbo hybrid engines that have been introduced to the sport this year.

Pre-season testing had made that more obvious, but it was only when the cars first hit the track in Albert Park that the true extent of their superiority became apparent.

For Hamilton, the news was not so good. Probably just about the last thing he wanted to see at the first race of the season was his team-mate win while he retired.

The two Mercedes drivers will now battle for the championship this season – with or without any opposition it is difficult to say just yet – and already Hamilton has a 25-point deficit on the only man with an identical car.

He put a brave face on it afterwards, saying there were “a lot of positives” to take from the weekend and that he was “generally quite relaxed” about it. But he knows he is already up against it.

Both Mercedes drivers are aware this is their big opportunity to win the championship after years of Red Bull domination, and both, insiders say, have stepped their commitment up a gear as a result.

How will Mercedes manage the relationship, will they allow the drivers to race –  they say they will…..what do YOU think?

With eleven teams and twenty two drivers will battle it out over 18 more compelling Grand Prix in what promises to be a spectacular season after the substantial revisions of last year.
