Mercedes may have won the previous GP but F1 is heading to Mexico – the circuit with the highest elevation (about 2,300 m above sea level). This means that the air is thinner and this gives the engineers many headaches as they have to adapt the aerodynamics, breaking and cooling to those conditions. The circuit has helped Red Bull win the last two races held there and they will be hoping to get another victory this season.
Mercedes may have won the Russian GP, partially due to the timing of the safety car, but Ferrari proved once again that it has a car capable of challenging for wins in many types of circuits. How quickly things can change!! Mercedes finished 1-2 in Suzuka last year but can he repeat it this year? In any case, he cannot mathematically secure the title in this round no matter where his opponents finish.
Ferrari won, or rather Mercedes lost, the Singapore GP and Vettel took his first victory after almost 400 days of drought. Russian GP is another race where we’ll be expecting a close fight between the two teams. Red Bull will necessarily be further back due to the expected grid penalties from fitting new engines on their cars.
Leclerc and Ferrari are coming to Singapore after two hugely important – for their spirit at least – wins in Belgium and Italy. The circuit characteristics are not expected to favour their car so it would be surprising to see a Ferrari on the podium on Sunday night. In contrast, Max will have what is needed to challenge Lewis for another win.
Data Science and Machine Learning have evolved a lot in the past 7 years that I’ve been practically involved in the domain. ML, with the help of the newest Deep Learning methods, has made huge advancements and problems that were considered untouchable 5 years ago, have now been solved. The good performance of ML on seemingly difficult tasks, like computer vision and natural text understanding, have made it look easy – especially to the newcomers. Too easy to be honest!…
After a weekend that the unthinkable happened, F1 returns to the temple of speed, a circuit that has renewed its contract with F1 for at least five more years. Ferrari and Leclerc have finally won a race and they will be hoping to replicate their performance in front of the tifosi.
After a long summer break, F1 returns to a power-sensitive circuit at Spa-Francorchamps. Ferrari might have a chance to fancy a so-much-needed victory although we know how strong Hamilton is in the second half of the season. The most interesting thing to watch for is the substitution of Gasly with Albon in Red Bull! Is the rookie going to provide a challenge to Max Verstappen?
After an amazing race in Germany, where Leclerc missed another shot at the victory while Hulkenberg wasted a chance to reach his first-ever podium, F1 is heading to Hungary. Ferrari is in desperate need for a win but the circuits characteristics are expected to play in favour of their rivals.
Lewis Hamilton won yet another Grand Prix this season. Many will say that the safety car helped him – and it did! However, this article by ESPN beautifully explains why Lewis would have won the race even if there was no safety car. Definitely worth reading to understand what 6-time world champions are made of! Anyway, this week F1 is heading to Germany, the race that Vettel infamously lost in 2018 due to a silly mistake in rainy conditions. Will…
Ferrari and Leclerc were so close to winning their first race in 2019 but failed to do so thanks to an amazing drive from Max Verstappen. They will be trying hard to take the revenge in Silverstone, a race which was won by Vettel last year. Both championships seem to be already decided but the Scuderia has to show some pride at least!
