    Mercedes AMG success continued in Shanghai where the team finished 1-2 for their fourth consecutive victory and third consecutive 1-2 finish. Lewis Hamilton took the win followed by teammate Nico Rosberg. Mercedes is simply dominating the 2014 Formula 1 season at this point and everyone is left wondering who it will be who may challenge them. It looks like Ferrari and Red Bull Racing are both improving and looking to challenge Mercedes' dominance. Ferrari took the third spot on the podium thanks to superb driving from Fernando Alonso which kept Red Bull Racing off the podium. Alonso was followed by Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull Racing who finished in 4th and 5th respectively. Sebastian Vettel is not used to losing and certainly not to his teammates which has him a bit frustrated. He says he does not understand his lack of pace and that he seems to be fighting his car. Hamilton moves four points behind Rosberg for the championship. These two will continue to battle and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. For now both have a commanding lead in the points. The full breakdown along with the results and standings is below. Mercedes Lewis Hamilton, P1 Nico Rosberg, P2 Hamilton drove another perfect race and was simply unbeatable as he closed to within four points of team mate Rosberg, and equalled the 25 Grand Prix victory tallies of Jim Clark and Mercedes boss Niki Lauda. His chosen set-up, selected on Friday evening but untried because it was wet on Saturday, proved just right and he said the car was “perfect.” Rosberg struggled away at the start, hit Bottas, and then fought back from seventh place while coping without telemetry. He was a long way behind Hamilton this time, but managed to retain his championship lead. Ferrari Fernando Alonso, P3 Kimi Raikkonen, P8 Alonso suggested before the race that Ferrari were catching Red Bull, and he proved it with a great race. A strong start saw him battling with the cars from Milton Keynes straight away, and he jumped Vettel at the first pit stop. The F14 T lacked Mercedes’ pace, but was a surprise best of the rest as the Spaniard scored a valuable podium to boost the team’s spirits and welcome new boss Marco Mattiacci. Raikkonen had a much less satisfactory race, struggling home a distant eighth. Red Bull Daniel Ricciardo, P4 Sebastian Vettel, P5 Once again Ricciardo had the edge over Vettel, who for the second race in a row was obliged to let his team mate past. The Australian then chased after Alonso as Vettel faded. The world champion later said he was mystified about his lack of pace, while Ferrari’s resurgence came as a major surprise to Red Bull. Force India Nico Hulkenberg, P6 Sergio Perez, P9 Once again Hulkenberg was a contender, despite the Shanghai circuit not suiting the VJM07 as much as Bahrain did. The German kept his cool near the end under pressure from Williams’ Valtteri Bottas, and was comfortably ahead of team mate Perez, who made it two Force Indias in the top ten. Williams Valtteri Bottas, P7 Felipe Massa, P15 This was another ‘what night have been’ race for Williams, as both cars were involved in time-consuming collisions on the run to the first corner. Massa had made a brilliant start and was fighting for third when he collided with Alonso; Bottas had also made progress until a clash with Rosberg. The Finn then battled hard with Hulkenberg and was within half a second of the Force India by the finish, but after a mix-up with both rear wheels in his first stop on Lap 10, Massa fell to last and could only fight back to 15th. Toro Rosso Daniil Kvyat, P10 Jean-Eric Vergne, P12 Both cars made it home, after strong battles with the McLarens, and once again it was the impressive Kvyat who earned the final point following another mature performance. McLaren Jenson Button, P11 Kevin Magnussen, P13 Both drivers suffered a lack of downforce and thus grip, and the best they could do was scrap with the Toro Rossos. The depth of their problem was demonstrated by Button finishing 10s behind the final point-scoring position. Lotus Pastor Maldonado, P14 Romain Grosjean, retired lap 29, gearbox Grosjean looked feisty for a while in what was the best race of his and Lotus’s season, and was a contender for the lower points positions before his transmission lost fourth gear. Soon it lost them all and had to retire. Maldonado kept his nose clean, and finished 14th again. Sauber Esteban Gutierrez, P16 Adrian Sutil, retired lap 6, powertrain Sauber had another unhappy race. A three-stop strategy was no help to Gutierrez, while Sutil retired after only five laps running at the back, with a powertrain problem. Marussia Jules Bianchi, P17 Max Chilton, P19 Marussia split their strategy, with Bianchi on a two-stop and Chilton on three. That helped the Englishman to the race’s 13th fastest lap, but the Frenchman was struggling at the end and only held on to 17th by virtue of the results being declared on lap 54/56 after the chequered flag was shown early. Caterham Kamui Kobayashi, P18 Marcus Ericsson, P20 Kobayashi was in his usual feisty form as Caterham opted for three-stop strategies for both drivers. He even overtook Vettel on one occasion, using fresh tyres as the German was struggling just before making a pit stop. Right at the end he almost squeaked ahead of Marussia’s Jules Bianchi, only to lose it when the result was backdated after the early chequered flag.

    LMP1 racing is very competitive this year with Toyota, Porsche, and Audi all competing against one another with the ultimate goal of taking the 24 Hour of Le Mans title. This past weekend the 6 Hours of Silverstone was the first race of the season to feature all three cars going up against one another. The 6 Hours of Silverstone also marks the first race of the season for the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship. Toyota's TS 040 car impressed to the say the least. Not only did Toyota get the overall win but they had an impressive 1-2 finish. The Porsche 919 Hybrid made its debut and got on the podium with a third place finish. The second Porsche 919 Hybrid finished sixth in its class but 24th overall. So what about Audi? The twin R18 Quattro's set a blistering pace but Audi made a large gamble that did not pay off. The number 2 R18 E-Tron Quattro had the fastest lap of the LMP1 cars but when a few spots of rain started to come down Audi decided to take the chance and have both cars continue running on their softer tires whereas Toyota and Porsche brought their cars in for a change to rain slicks. The number 1 R18 slid off the track and crashed. It was not so badly damaged that it could not return to the pits but it did finish in last place in the LMP1 class. Porsche also suffered a problem in the conditions as the number 14 Porsche 919 lost its front left wheel. For whatever reason Audi refused to change their tires and the second R18 also slid into the gravel. Neither Audi finished the race which is the first time an Audi LMP1 car has failed to finish since 2011. Conditions worsened as rain poured down and the race was called early. Not exactly the race people were hoping Silverstone would be. This race essentially showed that all of the LMP1 cars are competitive and a bad decision can cost someone the race. It looks like the LMP1 class is up for grabs but Toyota certainly looks strong in their debut. We will know more after the next WEC race on May 3rd at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.

    Thank you very much! You're signature says it pretty well, for those who don't need compromise. That's a pretty perfect slogan. By the way, when I was looking at the FF01, I searched the internet for literally an absurd amount of time trying to locate an actual picture of the Fog finish. Your site's gallery didn't have anything when Fog was selected, but I am still curious. Any pictures or maybe a description? Is it gloss or matte? Textured or not, etc... Thanks,

    Please, there is no need to apologize, we did not take any offense to your comments, whatsoever - we can handle opinions and criticisms. It's ignorant, spiteful remarks that irks us, so you're fine. We understand completely. Our products are expensive. Period.

We're a family and treat you as such. We're not going to turn you away when you have a question about finishes or even when you're changing your order multiple times. When you place your order, we get excited for you, we show the process, offer guided tours and are at your service when needed. It's all part of the experience that we believe to be unique and often overlooked in this market. The amount of money spent on HRE wheels is often, overwhelming, but what you are receiving in return, is what we believe to be, one of the best products in the industry - something you can be proud of. It is absolutely okay if you cannot afford HREs - it doesn't make you any less "cool", or whatever. We understand it is an expensive commodity so there is no pressure.

    I appreciate your reply and I agree with your points. I should have been more careful with some of my statements and for that I do apologize. I may or may not have been misguided in how I perceived the advertisements for your flow forms, but that's the way it goes. I feel I should add I am a big fan of yours. I'd love nothing more than to purchase a set of your forged wheels, I just can't rationalize the kind of money needed for the styles I like. That isnt to say your wheels aren't worth it, just that personally I'm not at a point in my life where I'm willing to spend that much on wheels (really it comes down to also reasoning with the wife, who isn't a car enthusiast). If only I could get a set of 20" P101's for $4k (please don't laugh), I'd be jumping for joy. So really I feel like I was the perfect target for your Flow Forms, but I just got hung up on them not being "true HREs" in my mind. But anyway, as I said, I appreciate the reply and the openness. Here's to hoping there's a set of HREs in my future somewhere. Edit: Can somebody rep HRE for how well they replied to my post? I'd do it but am new to BB.

    No, no need to apologize. This is a public forum - as such, you are entitled to your opinion. Whether its construed to be rude or not, is subjective. Yes, it might sound lame, but these wheels were indeed designed in San Diego after all. But for the consumer, we can assure you it's more than just spending $3k for a set of HRE center caps. And yes. These wheels are made in Japan. We're sorry if we've been ambiguous about this but we have certainly not been hiding this fact; we've often promoted it as such, "Designed in San Diego, made in Japan". We also apologize if we have seemed to be intentionally misleading customers - that is certainly not the case. We can assure you we've personally made the effort to inform every FlowForm inquirer of the fact that these wheels are being produced to the utmost quality standards by one of the absolute, best wheel manufacturers in the world, located in Japan. As for your remark about these wheels being identical in quality to said companies is, in our honest opinion, arguable...but that's for another post and another day :) If you have any further questions, we'd love to hear them! info@HREWheels.com. Thank you and have a great night! HRE Wheels

    I very nearly purchased a square 20x10.5 et26 setup until I agreed that spending that much on a set of wheels that HRE doesn't even manufacture is crazy. I think it's a bit lame on their part to push the "designed in San Diego" when they just contract some company in Japan to make the wheels for them and charge an arm amd leg to put their name on it and give you HRE center caps. Someone has been taking notes from Apple. Must be a Californian thing. What bothered me was the statement about designing the beauty and quality "before leaving our facility". That sounds intentionally misleading to me. Props to HRE for providing a cheaper alternative for people that can't afford their forged wheels and just want the name, but they should clarify that these are not manufactured in America (since they've always made a big deal about that) instead of hiding behind some ambiguious marketing. But at least you get their customer service and warranty. I apologize if I come off as rude, I don't mean to. I just don't appreciate misleading your customers, intentionally or not. For the exact same quality, you can get ForgeStar or Vorsteiner rotary forged/flow formed for less money. And the ForgeStars are much less expensive.
