But Taipan, Rosberg finished 57 seconds back in 12th last year? So they had a better start this year in terms of performance.

Rosberg got no points until the freak win in China last year. But I suppose you'll somehow paint Hamilton in a negative light if he hasn't acheived that come China.

Mercedes last dry race in Austin, Rosberg was next to be lapped and Schumacher was over a lap down at the finish line in 13th and 16th. Yet you don't think the car has improved.


Solid start from Mercedes. Yes the car has improved from what they ended up with towards the end of last year, but so it should. Would have been nice to have Rosberg finish aswell, so lets hope these gremlins can be worked out.

Thought the car would have had more race pace, just goes to show it's hard to tell just from tesing. They still have work to do on the tyres. Seeing kimi do a 2 stop and still have the pace towards the end must be worrying for all the teams.

Glad to see its

Taipan.
Lewis Hamilton supporters mus be a real painful "Thorn in your side".
Glad to see you still have your AIR of NEGATIVITY.

Ever heard the expression " Fresh Start" ?

Lewis Hamilton is delighted because Mercedes achieved more than everyone expected, hope it continues, maybe your right and it will not.

Look forward to reading your next spin.

could have been a lot worse, beat his former team, did marginally well, Ferrari have the best way with the tires, just like last year (hint hint) but I think as long as Mercedes can deliver a car which can manage the tires and produce the right amount of performance Hamilton can get the job done, Rosberg will probably be tougher than Alonso to deal with :)

@Taipan

Errr...no...we're actually not upset. Why would we be? You have been proven wrong in your pre-season predictions (or hopes). Lewis is not competing with midfield teams. The move from Mercedes was a good thing. He will have a chance of winning races this year. And when he wins, he'll be allowed to keep the trophies for once.

On current showing it looks like the move to Mercedes may not have been such a bad idea. Outqualifying Rosberg, comfortably beating both McLarens and finishing 32 laps in front of Rosberg.
Nobody in their right minds could passibly find anything negative to say about his race.

After Alonso let him off early on by not attempting to turn in despite having the line, he got passed around the 'outside' twice today and didn't crash, it was a solid effort after a very good qualifying effort
