World Championship Celebrations at Mercedes
  Drivers and senior management on hand at Brixworth and Brackley
After a dramatic, suspense-filled Sunday afternoon in Sochi, the team's factories in Brixworth and Brackley were filled with scenes of celebration today, as staff at both sites marked a landmark moment in Mercedes-Benz motorsport history. A second consecutive FIA Formula One World Constructors' Championship for the Silver Arrows sees a new chapter written in the long and successful racing heritage of the three-pointed star - 60 years after Juan Manuel Fangio clinched his second consecutive Formula One title with the marque.

Rosberg leads Mercedes 1-2-3 in Russian GP qualifying
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
Despite their whining for the last two weeks predicted that Mercedes, with their 100 HP advantage, would dominate the Russian GP at Sochi. So far that prediction is spot-on as Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas qualified 1-2-3 Saturday. The fastest non-Mercedes, was Sebastian Vettel in 4th who was a second per lap slower until his late run put him 8/10ths back from Rosberg. In other words they have no chance.

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.

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.
