The 2014 F1 season has started out with a bang. A popular name from the past has dominated the first 4 Formula races, winning them all. The name is MERCEDES!

Lewis Hamilton (World Champion 2008) of team Mercedes has won 3 of the thrilling races. Hamilton captured races 2, 3, and 4; Malaysia (3/30), Bahrain (4/6), and this past weekendís event in China (4/20). His teammate Nico Rosberg has been almost as equally impressive by winning the inaugural opener in Australia on March 16th, and finishing 2nd at Malaysia, Bahrain, and China. Interesting as it is, it is Rosberg who leads the Driverís Point standings with 79 points, with Hamilton following closely with 75 points. Hamilton had engine problems in the Australia race and went out on 2 laps, obviously failing to score any points. The two driverís impressive showings have catapulted Mercedes to a huge lead in the Constructorís series points with a total of 154. Trailing in second place is Red Bull-Renault with 57, followed by Force-India Mercedes in third place with 54 points. Listed below are the statistics for the first seven teams to have scored any points, as well as the drivers who have scored points.

Watch for Sebastian Vettel ( 4 Time World Champion 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013) to make a bid to move up from 5th place as Vettel is already one of the greatest drivers in F1 history. Some other interesting facts are Nico Rosberg is the son of former World Champion Keke Rosberg (World Champion 1982) and rookie Kevin Magnussen is the son of former F1 legend Jan Magnussen.
