I think Hamilton will eventually be quicker than Rosberg but will all due respect, Rosberg hasnt done that much in the relatively competitive teams hes been in, has he ?

At Mercedes Lewis has less annoyances to deal with, the political correctness of Ron/Mclaren and ridiculous sponsor duties. I dare say after last years Mclaren race debacles, a more reliable pit team and hopefully a more reliable car. He can now concentrate on racing without these headaches.

Brawn now has all the knowledge that Lewis has brought over from Mclaren, a driver who is probably around 2 tenths quicker than Nico. He will push the team and inspire the team

Gydewayz, probabilities is/are anybody's guess.
So far out of this first test, Rosberg 1 18 766 (medium), Lulu 1 18 905 (medium), compare that to Button 1 18 861 (hard).
The WO4 seems to be about the 6th fastest after Sauber.
The problem of the WO3 eating up the tyres in a very short time seems to have been carried over by the WO4.
CrashNet, the site is still very slow.

Actually Mclaren wanted Hamilton enough to match Mercedes offer, yet Lewis still walked away from them.. the Ross-reference to stickers was a nod to the Mclaren-esque attention to detail that Lewis is already bringing to Mercedes F1 team. Nico is super-quick but he came to Merc from a Williams team that was in shambles and he did not have access to the Mclaren 'process'-Redbull took 5 years to get their 1st win, and ppl are crushing Merc while they've won alreadyin only 3 seasons.. if Paddy Lowe follows Hamilton to Mercedes, Mclaren will quickly become a rudderless ship and I think that is going to happen -- watch for 2014.
