Lorenzo: “The Power is Incredible”
One of Lorenzo’s dreams came true at Silverstone, a track that he knows very well. In fact, it also hosts the MotoGP race. “For me riding a motorcycle is like walking. But cars are something new.” explains Jorge Lorenzo in the video. Despite being used to handle large displacements, the adrenaline of Formula 1 is another story. “Power is incredible. But the most amazing is the speed cornering. In MotoGP, i do it in first gear. In the F1, I do it in third gear.” said Lorenzo.
Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid, A Winning Car
The Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid has a front like that of Ferrari F14 T. But the result is more aesthetically pleasing (but also less original). In 2014, the reliability was more important than speed and Mercedes F1 W05 focused just on this last item. The car won immediately. So, Nico Rosberg triumphed in Australia. Then, Lewis Hamilton won in Malaysia, Bahrain, China and Spain.
