DC has been a Lulu fan for years. Even when he was racing against him. He doesn't command any respect in my book.
Why won't anyone give Nico any respect? What will be the excuse at the end of the season when Nico has more points? Will Merc raise Nico's pay to 20m to match boy wonder's? This IS the season to break everyones love affair with Hamilton, that is except Ron Dennis. He'll have the mexican thrown out at the end of the season to take Lulu back into his grasp. Just watch and see. Doesn't anyone remember the fit he threw when Lulu signed a contract with Merc?

DC entered F1 in the fastest car on the grid because senna was killed, he was flogged by every teamate he had...being a brit was huge advantage for him when Frank wanted brit drivers...he was a great team man and communicater and developer, but no racer..imo




He spent Most of his career in the fastest car on the grid where he should of acheived a lot more with his machinery.
Exept for the redbull where he was soundly beaten by webber.

If DC had of entered f1 through the rear of the grid like 95% of the drivers ,he might of lastest a season if he was lucky and never heard of again.

How can people claim Rosberg is faster than Lewis because of that time difference and single situation? No one was challenging Lewis on his test day, Massa lost his wheel trying. Lewis was on a cooler damper circuit Saturday, Rosberg on a warmer drier track Sunday. Lewis still had fuel for at least another 5 laps, Rosberg fueled for a flying lap to keep challenging Alonso at bay. Did these people even follow the tests? Bah!

I expect this to be a break through year for Nico, he has been underplayed for years now he has a team mate that is highly rated he can show how good he is.

I dont expect the mercedes to go for the title though to do that would be a miricle considering there have been basically no regulation changes this year.

I agree that Rosberg could have the upper hand in the early stages. Hamilton has to get used to the new car and new environment first of all. But at the end I think that Hamilton will do it, will beat Rosberg at the final standings. I really hope that in the Mercedes, he will not suffer the gremlins he suffered last year in the McLaren.In this case the picture could change. Just remember that he beated Button by only two points last year, despite performing better than him at most of the circuits. But reliability and the collision with Hulkenberg in Brazil deprived him from at least 3 race victories.

While I am not a fan of LH, I do respect his speed. He really hustles the car which is good in certain tracks but this tire deg at Merc could be a problem for him. If their tire deg is worse than what he had a McL, he might be in for some tough conversation laps this year.

I am a Nico fan and I think he is doing what he has done every year he beat MS. He is keeping his mouth shut and doing his talking on the track. He knows results are what counts and that is all the talking that needs to be done.
