Yes attention to every little detail! Fail to plan and you plan to fail.
Notice details and query them. Question everything as soon as possible, leave it a few days and your creditably is diminished. Ross Brawn has worked with most of the great drivers, so if he likes Lewis's approach then who are we who read crash net to argue? Only those who have had a lobotomy I think!

@Richard.. Reality check -seems you keep assuming Mercedes bought a championship winning team .. but what Mercedes bought was little more than a warehouse with some f1 stuff leftover in it-- don't forget Virgin got a free ride and barely put any money into Brawn GP - tho they won the titles they were almost broke by seasons end, so much so, Brawn fired half the (ex-Honda) employees and tried to cut Jenson Button's salary (again) so JButt skipped off to Mclaren -- maybe you didn't know this but Mercedes didn't get much from the Brawn acquisition heck Brawn himself almost quit F1 -- and Mercedes certainly didn't just come in and take over Honda F1 --- which was itself in shambles. Mercedes modern F1 history starts from 2010 - not 2009 as you suggest.

@107SS2009 - Actually 'Stickers' can make the car go faster.. or rather slower. improperly considered paint and decals can have a negative effect on Aerodynamics. (aka create Drag). --and btw i'm anything but a 'one-eyed fanboi' I'm actually a Tifoso who is rooting for Ferrari, Alonso and Massa --- i just enjoy engaging with all of the over-the-top Lewis Hamilton bashers. As any F1 article or thread with a comment section which mentions Hammy-- boy fun is sure to ensue. Mention Button and there will be yawns and 2 comments -- mention Lulu and let the fun begin.

michael.., oops sorry, and i always thought that merc had bought brawn in the year they won the wdc wcc, even with a smaller number of employees! and then they decide to lure schumi with the promise that they would be fighting for the wdc wcc the next year.
well now, why would they be making such promises if they thought that they had bought a minnow? they had brawn, they had schumi,they had a good car , albeit with a gifted ddd, but one that used nonda technology.

compare that to red bull, who bought a useless team , or two, if you include minardi for str. they then made no promises, but just recruited and worked tirelessly to create a super team.

BIG difference.

LH is not my fave driver my any means by I do admit he does have raw speed and does ring the neck out of the car.

I am personally cheering on NR. While he has a far more laid back demeanor than LH, it does not mean he doesn't demand a winning car. I think NR is doing what he has done since joining Merc. He let the points at the end of season do the talking b/c he knows that is what matters. He is not as flamboyant at LH, but he gets on with the job. I hope NR out scores LH by a country mile.
