Mercedes Warns Hamilton and Rosberg

Mercedes is having a great season as they will win the constructor’s championship and the driver’s championship.  Either Hamilton or Rosberg is going to win the title.  Mercedes chiefs have warned the two drivers that any further problems on the track between the two won’t be tolerated.  Mercedes bosses Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe said that “there must be no contact between the team’s cars on track”.  The two drivers have also had to take the party line and say that they will work together. “Nico and I accept that we have both made mistakes and I feel it would be wrong to point fingers and say which one is worse than the other.” Hamilton said, “What’s important is how we rise as a team from these situations. We win and we lose together and, as a team, we will emerge stronger.”

Race Notes

With seven races remaining it is Rosberg who leads Hamilton by 29 points. Hamilton won the Italian Grand Prix two years ago but last year he finished 9th.  Sebastian Vettel won last year in the midst of his historic season and Vettel also won in 2011 and in 2008. Fernando Alonso won in 2007 and in 2010.

F1 Predictions

This is almost a must-win race for Hamilton if he expected to get back into the title hunt so we’ll look for him to win on Sunday.
