It seems a little funny that I was absolutely enjoying the Vettel-Red Bull Racing dominance in 2013 and have a polar reaction when I now see Hamilton-Mercedes dominating the 2014 Formula1 Season. I guess this is what it feels like when a driver you don’t support much is dominating. And of course, I wasn’t one of those complaining during the Schumacher era either!

The in-season test is currently underway and there are talks about a ‘megaphone’ exhaust being tried by teams to enhance the sound of the 1.6 litre V6 power unit. I am only glad that our earlier episode ‘Engine No-ise’ was taken seriously! And in the same breath, I hope to witness ‘Racing First, Engineering Later’! But it is heartening to know that ‘Formula1 Puts Fans First’, finally!
In the latest episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we look back at the sheer dominance of Hamilton-Mercedes and wonder how Rosberg is usually only a tenth behind. And of course, we have Formula1’s Pastor to talk about, who is leading a championship of his own. But before I beat around the bush, can someone please fight back? I know Formula1’s structure and rules favour domination, but not Hamilton of all the drivers. Power up Rosberg!
