F1 » Rosberg: I couldn't avoid Webber


Nico Rosberg could have claimed a rare podium finish for the Mercedes team had he not been in the wrong place at the wrong time when Mark Webber crashed out of the Korean GP.

I am shocked and surprised at the performance of the Mercedes this weekend. What was the difference? I have not had time to follow to closely. Were there major upgrades added this weekend or did they finally dial it in? Anyone?

PS Massa came close to losing it at the end, Shumi might have been on the podium had that happened. That would have been something!

PPS A hello to all!!!!!

What was Webber doing!?!? he lets his car just turn into oncoming cars, he must've hoped he would have went into Alonso or Hamilton or something, what an idiot! I feel bad for both Seb n Rosberg.

watta ***** watch the replay,he did what most race drivers do in any situation when the are going to hit a concrete wall especially in a single seater, they put their hands in their lap to protect their hands and fingers,so he didnt have control of the car after the impact...dont comment without getting the facts right.

'Sucks!Don't understand why webber didn't hit the breaks.Was crazy(evidently)2 roll back over the track.' Rosberg wrote this on twitter, check it out on ESPN F1.

To be fair, Webber was a passenger at that point...

Like Nico says, he misjudged the direction Webber's car was taking.

Sucks for him because he would have been in great position - and that Mercedes was looking good. So much so, that it took Michael to probably his best finish of the year. We can only assume how much better Nico would have placed, given the chance.

It's natural for a driver to steer the same way as the car in front and hope that his speed will let him get clear. It is much harder to steer to where the car on front came from. This can only be done with lots of practise until it become second nature because it has to be instinctual.
