Formula 1 2014: USGP Results – FINAL

usgp 2014

Speculation that as many as eight cars would boycott the USGP by pulling into the pits after the first lap- like they did at the 2005 USGP at Indianapolis– proved to be unfounded, and all 18 of the remaining Formula 1 competitors made a solid go of today’s race. That was especially true of Sauber’s Adrian Sutil and Force India’s Sergio Perez, who were so excited to actually be racing that they managed to crash into each other on the first lap!

Further up the field, Hamilton eventually overtook his pole-winning team mate and took a commanding victory, lapping most of the field and giving the impression that he could have done the job in his sleep. Such was the display of Mercedes dominance.

If Mercedes’ continued dominance of the new turbo era is concerning for the other teams, though, surely it’s not the most concerning thing for Ferrari. With Fernando Alonso supposedly leaving the team at the end of 2014, the Scuderia’s hopes for 2015 have been largely pinned on Kimi Raikkonen, who was lapping in 13th to Alonso’s 6th in the last stint of the race. In the same car.

For Ferrari’s sake, here’s hoping Sebastian Vettel can do something Kimi can’t!

You can see how today’s Formula 1 USGP at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) played out for the rest of the F1 field in the chart, below. Enjoy!
