I think Lewis will be delighted when he sees the state of Macca atm. It was a good performance by Lewis, glad his car stayed the distance, shame for Nico that his didn't. Going to be interesting to see this partnership and how it pans out. Nico was fast earlier in the qualy, then Lewis was the following day and it would seem he had the edge in terms of race pace.
I've read the Button vs Lewis comments, rubbish imo, i support all the Brits, i don't see that you must support one over the others...just the anti-brigade want to create division where there is none.
As for Macca? WTF is going on there then? I don't think it would matter if Lewis was still there or not, they have designed a dog of a car. As someone else said....why bother with a massive redesign when a new car is required for next year? Maybe someone could tell me if the new front will be transeferrable to next years motor? If that's the case this might be clever but currently a lot of people will be questioning Macca's direc

Now now Ray, everyone should have the democratic right to express their views on a decent forum like crash whether it be Political,personal or of a ecclesiastical nature as long as it is pertaining to that subject/topic.

Some people may think Lewis's natural raw talent could be down to divine intervention who knows surely if some one thinks that way they should be allowed to say that without causing an offence,

@kiwibob. Ok for the sake of keeping it real here are the gaps between Hamilton & Rosberg.
Lap 18- 6.6, 19-5.5, 20-4.5, 22-4.7, 23-4.6. It then stayed roughly the same until Rosberg retired on lap 27 when the gap was 4.6. Lewis was hardly romping away. If you recorded the race - take a look. I'm not particularly a fan of either driver just clarifying the facts.
If you were to add Mclaren back into the equation then Mercedes are no closer than last year and more importantly still seem incapable of running two reliable cars

I wouldn't get too excited fanboys, Schumacher qualified 4th, 3rd and 3rd in the first 3 races of 2012 and Rosberg had a win and a pole in that period and we know how that season ended.

@Taipan

Schumacher's first race in a Mercedes he finished 10th and Rosberg finished 5th

@chris,,how much faster do you expect lewis to be in the same car?a second quicker?2 seconds quicker?what?if youre both in the same car,and not caught up in traffic etc,you will be of a similiar pace to your team mate.massa at times was quicker than alonso,but so what,alonso came away with more points.
lewis is new to the team,it was his very first race with them,on a track he's not great on.

@Matt. If you read through the posts you'll see that I just was responding to those who claimed that Hamilton was pulling away from Rosberg and no I don't really expect Hamilton to be any quicker than Rosberg.
