All I've seen in the last week and a half is Mercedes and Hamilton floundering. That is, flopping around like a fish out of water. 5th in the race? Whoop-de-do. a Second off the pace so far this weekend? Sounds like it will be an intense battle with Force India again, just like I've been saying since November. And what the hell are McLaren doing?

holly. nobody can assess the skills of the two drivers after one quali and one race! in case you hadnt noticed, in the race, nico actually caught lulu and then circulated just behind him until he retired. that is hardly "caning". the only thing that could be gained from melbourne, was the fact that both drivers were pretty equal. certainly lulu did not stand out as any thign exceptional, or if he did, then nico was also exceptional

Ok Richard what about if he does the same this race and then the next what then? What does this guy have to do to to impress the likes of you and bob?
Hes seen off every team mate hes ever had including 2 world champs ok he got beat in 2011 but that wasnt down to lack of speed just an erratic poor season, But a Hamilton with his head in the right place is a very formidable driver who is definately in the top 3 of the current drivers Button and Rosberg are not in my opinion

They both have the advantage of racing together before. .not me saying this but bbc f1 pundit David C said Lewis always had the upper hand of Nico in there carting days. ..there's no reason it will be any different now.

Either way I hope they both do well. .they'll be great for each other. Lewis said 'today was to do with distance' I imagine sorting out the balance issues which according the Ross should be fairly easy to rectify.

.'tomorrow is for lap time'
So, we wait with baited breath :)

Lewis is a good fast driver although he does lack consistency during parts of the season. Nico is also fast but we don't really know yet whether he is a match for Lewis.

Mercedes isn't quite where it needs to be yet in order to challenge the leaders but they may turn things around sooner rather than later. I believe they have a better chance than McLaren from what we have seen so far.

It's still early days with a lot of races left.
