@ fish fingers

If you have a chance to read a little about the B194, MS definitely drove that car over the limits. Any other drivers drove the B194 claimed that it was a very difficult car to drive.

@ Senna forever

Fair enough, but to me every team in F1 tries to bend the rules one way or another. Whoever bends the most without getting caught has the biggest chance of winning. The recent Red Bull is a perfect example. Brilliant engineers find the loopholes, that's where it sets the differences. The 1993 Williams was arguably the most advanced F1 car in history, Senna wanted to switch because of the 1993 dominance. I guess he didn't expect such a big difference in 1994 when most of the advantages Williams had were banned.

Can someone explain to me why so many people feel like Lewis Hamilton has come to the Mercedes team and now he's gonna show Nico Rosberg how to drive? Nico is a damn good driver as was shown when he gave the greatest of them all fits (Schumi.) Now, granted Michael was past his prime, but even still Nico MUST be one hell of a driver to match Michael the way he did.
I think we are going to see Lulu have his ass handed to him by Nico this year.

Ptolomy, everyone around here has to have an opinion, and regretably there are very few who even get close to considered, objective views. Fact is, ALL the drivers in F1 are 'a Hell of a driver', with skills (some natural, some acquired) we plebs can't even dream of acquiring, and to quote Martin brundle the difference between dominance and subservience is 'fractions of tenths'. My own view on NR v. LH is that LH will dominate him but its based on fairly sketchy evidence, and doesn't stop NR being a ****-hot driver. What I do think LH will bring to Brawn is some of the obsessive attention to detail that I know the McLaren organisation practise.

I mean Hamilton didn't prove a whole lot to Jenson at McLaren, so whats all the excitement about with this guy? I guess he did beat up on Fernando Alonso in 2007 at McLaren, but to me that just shows how HEAVILY OVERRATED Fernando Alonso is.

....which are all just opinions, complicated by the Man/machine aspect of F1. A driver 'hater' will always atribute a driver's success to the car and vice versa, its pretty much a worthless exercise to argue this or any point. There's no such discussion in darts for example (although there IS a lot of discussion!), the best darts player in any given competition wins the competition...

I just don't get you guys - Ross didn't specifically set out to mention the stickers on the car, it was a comment stating Lewis's eye for detail, nothing more, a comment in passing.

EDIT by CRASH.NET! Inappropriate comment removed.

Actually Ross was pointing out to the world that the **** has already started with Lulu. Getting all bent out of shape about some stickers that are REQUIRED by the sponsors, and this is just at the first PRACTICE. Lulu isn't worried about developing the car, just how good he looks in it. Ross wants everyone to know that it is not his fault and it was not his decision to hire Hamilton and how he's already started causing trouble. This is a subtle cry for help from Ross. Any psychologists here that can help me with the term for this?
