The line up Mercedes AMG drivers will fight until the end of the season. As we could see through it, the silver cars have a big advantaje over the rest, and maybe, the only team that could put in risk the title for  the german or the  british could be Red Bull Racing by means of the Perth' s boy Daniel Ricciardo. It is essential for the tin team that they solve the Renault  engine issues.

check the spelling of "advantaje". Check use of capital letters.

The australian legend "Sir Jack Brabham" has parted. He was the unique driver that could win the championiship by a car built by himself. He raced in dangerous time of F1 and was an inspiration  to many australian younger drivers.  His three sons also followed his steps in motoracing but not successfully  as old Jack. The australian prime minister attend in his funeral and said Sr. Jack was a pioneer and that he was pround of him. Finally, his grandson, Mathew Brabham  shines  in  Indy Light category in USA, carrying the genes of his grandfather with him.
