Spanish racing driver Fernando Alonso will miss Formula One's most glamorous race, the Monaco Grand Prix, to instead take part in the United State's iconic Indianapolis 500, his team said on Wednesday.

McLaren-Honda said that, after the absence of 38 years, it would return to the American classic race popularly known as the "Indy 500" with a single car driven by Alonso, powered by Honda and run by the Andretti Autosport team.

"I believe in this project, I'm committed and I want to be world champion with McLaren-Honda. That's my only goal," Alonso said at the headquarters of the English team on Tuesday.

Mercedes' Nico Rosberg has finally picked up his first win of the year beating teammate and reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton to the chequered flag for the time this season at the Spanish Grand Pric to give fans of Formula One racing hope that this season may not turn out to be the one horse race it was turning into.

Speaking of horses, Sebastian Vettel was more competitive than usual in his Ferrari today, pipping Hamilton to second place early in the race, and holding on to that advantage for large periods before Hamilton's decision to switch to a three stop strategy worked very much in favour of the Brit, who pushed hard on fresh tyres and was able to get a lot of clean air to work with, while Vettel seemed to perennially struggle with traffic.

He has taken a while to hit his straps this season, but Germany's Nico Rosberg has finally landed his first Pole Position of the 2015 Formula One season, beating his teammate and reigning world champions Lewis Hamilton to the best place to start tomorrow's Spanish Grand Prix.

Rosberg produced a time of 1:24.681 to comfortably take pole ahead of Hamilton, who barely sneaked into the 1:24s with a time of 1:24.948. Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari was meanwhile in his seemingly routine third place, more than half a second further back.

The Scuderia Ferrari drivers ended the first free practice session for the Singapore Grand Prix in first and seventh positions. Fernando Alonso set the benchmark time in 1.49.056, while Kimi Raikkonen’s best time was a 1.50.783.

The Spaniard and the Finn completed 16 and 19 laps respectively, working on set-up and beginning the evaluation of the Pirelli Soft tyre, a task that will be completed in the second session when they will also run the Supersofts.

The track is quite dirty and appears to be as bumpy as ever, especially in the first sector,while its temperature ran at 37 degrees.

Between Fernando and Kimi on the time sheet came the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, the two Red Bulls of Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne in the Toro Rosso. Vettel though could miss the second session after having suffered an engine failure.

 

Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing won arguably the most entertaining Grand Prix in many a season as the Australian rookie beat Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton to the top step of the podium at the Hungaroring.

A race which had absolutely everything from rain to tyre strategies to safety cars and crashes to incredible saves and daredevil overtaking to tyres and brakes running out of steam and team orders left fans begging for more such racing in what had thus far been a rather routine season dominated by Mercedes, whose car has been far superior to others on the track.

There seems to be no stopping Mercedes this year as Lewis Hamilton racked up his third win on the bounce in Asia, coasting for a lights to chequered flag victory at the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. Such was Hamilton's dominance, that he strode to victory a full 18 seconds ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg, who by virtue of grabbing second place once again, still leads Hamilton in the Drivers' Championship standings by 4 points.

Rosberg would have been disappointed to have not been more competitive in this race, but a poor start from his qualifying position of fourth meant that he had to work his way up the field in the early stages of the race and by then Hamilton was already long gone into the Shanghai sunset. The German was also without any car to pit communication for the bulk of the race and was far from happy with how luck has conspired against him of late.
