This is Nico's big chance. If he can outperform Schumacher this year, it'll make him a star.

By the way, has anyone else seen Nico's website? It's like some GQ magazine shots of him posing around the house with quotes like "come with me on my adventure." It looks ridiculous. But he's a good driver, even if he may be bent.

The only thing that comes to my mind now is Imola 1994...How many drivers stepped out of their cars to help Senna?

Remember him at Spa helping Erik Comas after suffering a crash...Remember him also at Spa helping Zanardi...

Senna and MS are in two different levels mate. He NEVER pushed the safety limits to win a race. JUST the opposite: Senna and others were always pushing for better safety measures. MS did ****.

Prost battles? Learn the truth...in 89 Senna overtook Prost and this loser CLOSED the door causing a crash on purpose. In 1990 Senna , stripped from his pole "position"= starting on the dusty side, alerted Prost not to take advantage of this, but the French refused= Crash.

MS was 1 second behind Kimi and Massa in his last F1 tests! Arguably Nico will eat this Grandpa alive...to Ross deception.

MS is doing a Prost time...Remember the french chicken being dispatched by Senna in his poor Ford V8 in more races than he would though?...He left F1 as quiet as you never saw a WDC. Just look at Hill in 1994 being trashed by Senna in the very same car, the year before Prost and the britcrap were tail to nose during the whole season.

Shoemaker with his huge experience and knowledge would make great developer, so his younger and faster teammate could pocket the title. Something tells me this is not what we are going to see. :(

@TRAFA: Those mythologized incidents were during practice sessions - BIG DIFFERENCE. Senna would unhesitatingly drive his car over the stricken body of an opponent during a race in order to lift a little trophy at the end.

The measure of any man's sincerity is whether or not he conducts his actions in accordance with his stated beliefs. Senna clearly did not hold safety, or clean driving, in high regard. The onboard camera of any driver that happened to be behind Senna at any time is a testament to this.

The Mercedes cars will have #3 & #4 this season, as Jenson takes his WDC #1, with #2 for Hamilton, with him to McLaren. Thus, if Michael Schumacher has #3 on his car, he will be the main driver for the team.

KK, I predict Rosberg will carry 3 and Schumacher 4, just so that they don't get people seeing the lower number on the car and accusing them of favoritism before the season has even started.

spot on, novice. watch and learn. would any sensable young driver not wish to benefit from the knowledge and experience of such a vastly experienced driver? even if it "trickles down" to said driver?
nico will benefit from this relationship immensely.
