Drama In Canada

For those of you that watched the 2014 Canadian Grand Prix, you know that the race was filled with drama. I feel sorry for those of you who were unable to watch the race, as you missed out on the most exciting race of the 2014 season.

We knew the race was going to be action packed when there was an accident on the first lap. After so much celebration in Monaco, both of the Marussia cars were taken out of the race. This brought out the Safety Car and shortened the race by about 10 laps while the safety crew cleaned up fluids on the track.

Next we saw a tight battle between the two Mercedes cars. Nico Rosberg cut the final chicane and was placed under investigation, but not penalty was issued. Lewis Hamilton was closing the gap on his teammate, but that ended after both Hamilton and Rosberg reported the same issue with their car. Later in the race, Hamilton suffered a brake issue and was forced to retire.

The race heated up again near the end, as Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo overtook Rosberg on the Casino Straight for the lead of the race. More drama when Felipe Massa’s Williams got into Sergio Pérez’s Force India going to the first corner of the final lap. Both cars went into the wall, Massa barely missing Sebastian Vettel. The race was then ended under the safety car.

This put Mercedes’ “perfect season” down the drain and gave Ricciardo the first win of his Formula One™ career.
