Hamilton moves closer to 2014 F1 title – US GP – the points

Lewis Hamilton is a “race-animal”. After losing the comparison with his team-mate in Qualifying, he was outstanding in race, scoring an overtaking that proves who’s the best team right now. The advantage points are now 24 (of 75 still to be assigned between Brazil and Abu Dhabi) and the “end” word could get in a week. It’s just a matter between them. At the moment, there aren’t other players that can bother them.

It has been a Grand Prix in which Williams has disappointed me. Honestly, I would expect to see both Massa and Bottas fighting for third place. However, Daniel Ricciardo, author of an incredible overtaking, has been fantastic on this front. He absolutely proves himself to be a team-leader, optimizing at his best this Red Bull, which never stops surprising us, “killing” – sportingly speaking – the team-mate Vettel.

Sincerely, I didn’t understand Vettel’s strategy – forced to start from pit-line – even if he grabbed the seventh place just at the end.

Well done for Lotus, which has risen with a point of Maldonado, and Vergne. The French proved not to be scrapped. He may still be useful for Toro Rosso and Red Bull in a global context, leading important points to Faenza. The team is growing and he can be of help.

With regards to Ferrari, Fernando Alonso continues his positive trend, ridiculing Raikkonen. Unfortunately, the comparison with the Spanish is embarrassing.

As might be expected, Marussia and Caterham’s forfeit case dominated this weekend. We’ll have to wait to understand which way will take this F1, as there’s a lot of irons in the fire, considering third car and new dividing up of rights. Honestly, I don’t think that the third car is the best solution. However, I promise you to analyze problems more patiently later. (MINARDI)
