"Nico Rosberg has notched up no fewer than 25.5 points"

Come on, Crash. While that's technically correct, Rosberg is on 30.5 points now. He reached 25.5 point after the European GP on 26 July 2009.

I cut and pasted that text from the article so it must have been edited. Never mind.
Nakajima is still a country mile behind his team mate and blocking a seat that could be filled by a talented drive.

we all know nico is favored at williams, for sure he's the #1 driver. But it's mostly not Nakajima's fault that they don't do well in the pits and lose his point paying positions on more than one occasion. If you think back he has finished quite well compared to his starts. Williams isn't that great of a team anyway. Rosberg is lucky to score, and Nakajima is lucky when he does too.

Could be worse for Williams though....they could be Toyota F1....if they switch to Renault or Merc' engines then its goodbye Naka...results havent been anywhere near what they should and its down to him...the car has a fair amount of pace in it and had Williams not had to put up with Naka they would be in a far better position points wise

@toyotaf1fan
Williams are a pretty fair team in the grand scheme of things and don't have a history, like Ferrari & Renault, of being overly biased with drivers. However, in two seasons with the team Nakajima has only managed 9 points compared to Rosbergs's 47.5. It's hard to find that level of disparity in recent F1 history.
To suggest the Rosberg is lucky to score is absurd. He is 6th in the F1 WDC, and you can't get there with luck, especially when your team mate is 19th and pretty much dead last. The only drivers behind him in the table are those who have competed in 4 or less races!
And Williams aren't a great team? I take it you've been following F1 since about breakfast time...
