@Brion - that 'disgusting team leader at Benneton.." who had Button 'pegged', last year admitted he was wrong about Button, ate serious humble pie.

Wrong! As are many who post here who, next year, will also be eating serious humble pie!

@hertfordshire - "....Jenson has been a victim of this wonder driver with him being most probally the only F1 WDC who has finished behind another teammate by such a margine in quali"

Nope!!

When Senna & Prost raced together at McLaren, Senna outqualified Prost 13-2! In both seasons!

If Button can outscore Hamilton over 3 years, so can Rosberg.

There is too much hype about Lewis. Its starting already with what wonderful things he will do next year, challenging for the WDC possibly, showing Rosberg how to qualify, blablabla

Fact is when Lewis has a good year like 2012 he comes 4. in the championship and when he has a bad year like last year he comes 5.

Compared to Vettel who when he has a good year like 2011 he comes first and when he has a bad year like 2012 he comes first as well !

What do you mean Nico never had a fast car. A fast car is what the driver makes it. If it had been DeLarosa and Kamui at Sauber we might not know the car can claim multiple podiums.

Nico went into a team that had won the title in 2009, and with Mercedes on board in 2010, their budget was as good as anyone's. Everyone expected them to be in the title chase from the get go.

If Vettel never went to Red Bull we would never know it was that good. Maybe it was a solid car even before Vettel arrived. I remember Scott Speed in the STR used to out-qualify Coulthard and Webber in the Red Bull. Granted they had the same chassis at that time but different engines. But Red Bull had a bigger budget and they tested the cars before STR got them.

RGB, I'm sorry I thought we had already agreed that you were RGB was I imagining that conversation? :?

As for "satisfaction" let me quote The Rolling Stones 'cos you can't get none, that's the price of being a delusional fanboy mate.

I think the fanboys will be surprised at Nico's pace when he routinely outpaces Ron's Golden Boy. Nico is a superb driver that has simply never had a fast car to drive.
