2016 F1 season reaches its midpoint

An incredible run of victories from Nico Rosberg, the youngest ever grand prix winner in Max Verstappen and a fantastic effort from Lewis Hamilton to overturn a large point deficit in the championship table.

There’s been a plethora of exciting action so far in the 2016 F1 season, and we’re only halfway through.

It hasn’t just been about the front of the grid, either, with Manor Racing Team securing their first ever point at the Austrian Grand Prix, and the likes of Carlos Sainz, Sergio Perez and Kevin Magnussen showing impressive form in the midfield.

F1 also visited the beautiful city of Bakufor the first time, and recently made a return to Hockenheim. The fans attended Silverstone in their droves as always, and the rich and famous mingled with the drivers in Monaco.

The championship battle is hotting up with some impressive upgrades from Red Bull Racing which have allowed them to gradually close the gap to Mercedes AMG Petronas. Though Lewis Hamilton currently leads by 19 points, he has an engine penalty to come and three rapid drivers behind him who could challenge his title at any time. In the longest season in the history of Formula 1, anything could happen. We don’t know about you, but we’re glued to our seats.
