Nico Rosberg contends that with so much focus on the struggles of his Mercedes Grand Prix team-mate Michael Schumacher in F1 2010, his own strong performances have been somewhat overlooked...

nico shoud read crash.net. there are a few of us who do recognise his talents, especially against his teammate. but , rob, i doubt that he will ever be a wdc, so maybe his job is safe!

the main talking point at mercedes has been schumacher's struggles while totally downplaying what nico has achieved, even after suzuka all we hear is 'schumacher's race pace was better than rosberg's', (a little bit like saying jenson button had better race pace than hamilton at said event), but not to worry, even the (once) great michael schumacher will be 42 next year and he will get beaten again, unless there is some brawn puts all the 'bendy bits' he's spent so much time investigating on schumacher's car

He is right. People have been using him as an example of how poorly Schumacher is doing instead of using Schumacher as an example of how well Nico is doing. Maybe he is a better driver than people are giving him credit for.

Nico had best listen close. What is going on at Mercedes is now becoming a mirror image of what Shuey did at Ferrari..Teammate, what teammate?

He has for whole season been living under the shadow of Schumacher..2011 will be no different even if you out perform him as you have done so far, and I must say a real super job, by a very large margin.

I think its time to look at what may be available next season (I bet you have) Reanault
will will need a very hot pilot for next season, just me hoping.

Korea is next, (I think)....bb just keep on keeping on, we are watching...

Copied from this report. “I think it's absolutely obvious that Nico has so far extracted what was possible from the car,” the German underlined. “Only on a very few occasions was this not the case. I think he learned a lot with Williams, and if you would name one of the top guys that are currently young and experienced in F1 you would certainly mention Nico. He is a very good benchmark for probably everybody in the field.”

A case of incorrect headlining yet again methinks.

The boss says you have maximised the car - what more does he want? A gold plated Merc?

Maybe he wants them to say he put a as s whopping on the seven time WDC. If MS was any other driver on the grid he would have been sent to the house mid season. Even on ToroR andrew. Imagine if Franz was his team principle. Might have been gone race 3.

If Nico were in a RB or Mclaren he would be fighting for the title right now.
Same position as JB before he was given a capable car.
Hopefully he will A: be given a chance with a better team or B: Mec can turn their car into a winner.

Rosberg has consistently beaten his team mate, he is clear in the points race and all have admired his success this season.

In a year where he was anticipated to be eclipsed by his more experienced and highly touted team mate, he should sit back, count his blessings and keep his mouth shut!

If the new car suits Michael better and if he hogs the testing, next year will open up whole new vistas and venues in which the young Mr Rosberg can grovel and whine! He will pine for the good old days on 2010 and only then realize the opportunity squandered!
