Russian GP Preview
  At Sochi
Several F1 teams preview the upcoming Russian GP at Sochi where the 100 HP Mercedes advantage will again see Lewis Hamilton run away and hide. The circuit in Sochi, which was new to the calendar one year ago, is regarded in our team as one of the kindest on the tires due to its special surface, the absence of very high speed corners and the cool ambient temperatures. On this basis, Pirelli has chosen the soft and supersoft compounds, as opposed to the medium and soft that were used one year ago: it will be interesting to reassess what that means for the car's set-up and race strategy.

Haas F1 Team Selects Grosjean as Driver
  Experienced Racer Joins American-Led F1 Team
When Haas F1 Team makes its debut in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship in 2016, it will do so with an experienced racer in Romain Grosjean. The 29-year-old Grosjean has competed in 78 Formula One races and scored 10 podium finishes, with the most recent being a third-place result in August at the Belgian Grand Prix. He is currently in his fifth Formula One season with Lotus F1 Team.
Close F1 and IndyCar Cockpits, Save Lives
  by Ethan Bregman
Justin Wilson, my friend, my colleague, the man with whom I first stood on top of an IndyCar podium, is dead. His death last month was preventable. We in the racing industry had the technology and ability to prevent his death and we chose not to. In the 1950s, our engineering capabilities were such that racing cars would destruct on impact. They became cages of flaming death. The cars had no seatbelts and open cockpits, since a driver’s best hope for survival in a crash was a prayer to be thrown clear of the wreckage.

Hamilton leads Mercedes 1-2 in Japan
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
Using the superior power of his Mercedes engine, Lewis Hamilton took the lead of the Japanese GP and paraded to an easy win 18.9 sec. win. Hamilton nudged his teammate Nico Rosberg off the track in the first corner allowing Sebastian Vettel up to 2nd. But the massive HP advantage of the Mercedes was too much for the Ferrari and Vettel never got close to challenging Hamilton who is now all but assured of the 2015 title.
Mercedes engines to start 1-2-3 at Suzuka
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
As predicted, superior Mercedes power won the pole for the Japanese GP. Nico Rosberg claimed his 2nd pole position of 2015 for the Japanese Grand Prix, but he was lucky as his teammate Lewis Hamilton was sure to beat him if not for a spectacular accident by Red Bull's Daniil Kvyat that brought a premature end to qualifying at Suzuka. The Williams-Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas set the third fastest time making it a Mercedes engine 1-2-3 on the fast Suzuka circuit.

Analyzing Red Bull's F1 dilemma
  by Brian Carroccio
No doubt, racing is a bottom-line, cutthroat, what have you done for me lately business. That said, I think one would be hard-pressed to come up with a nastier, more drawn out, more it-really-didn’t-have-to-end-this-way divorce than what we’ve witnessed between Red Bull and Renault over the last 8 months. And while the general belief is that the Adrian Newey-designed RB chassis from 2010-2013 were the primary driving force behind the team’s four consecutive Constructor and Driver championships, Renault’s contributions to that historic run cannot be disputed.
