Niki Lauda: From a sporting perspective, that was wrong. They should have let [Rosberg] go...

Brawn and Lauda's fellow Austrian countryman Wolfe, said both drivers had fuel issues. Whereas, Rosberg and Lauda are on the other side. Only the second race of the season and a split is developing. Its going to be a long difficult year for Brawn.

Lauda vs Brawn-politically at Merc probably Laude BUT Brawn is a Manc AND steered Schumi in his race victories AND has the trackside facts regarding fuel and tyres lasting to the finish. What if he had released Nico to chase the Red Bulls and Nico then spluttered to a stop before the finish out of fuel. In the real rufty tufty world Ross will punch all the Merc sycophants out and bulldoze Lewis and Nico into title contenders. I have seen Ross Brawn and only an Austrian ex-driver with pork scratchings for ears would chose to pick a fight with him

Whilst i don't like team orders in general, they are a fact, and sometimes are there to protect the team rather than the drivers' egos. In both cases we saw how much respect two of the drivers have for their team (bosses).

In both cases "management" (Lauda and the Helmet) have made clueless (or possibly tactical) statements that do nothing for team stability or credibility.

Let the feckers race...

lool @ IanM. Been LOLing at the Brawn vs boxer analogy lol. More of this light relief is what we need on the forum.

But seriously, if Lewis (and it's a big IF) is in contention later in the year with a couple of races to go, Lauda will be the first to look back and thank Brawn for Sunday's decision. Ooohh, what a few precious points mean in F1 :-)

How has it taken Lauda a week to comment on this issue. He´s obviously been giving it a lot of thought but come to the wrong conclusion. He´d be better leaving the important racing decisions to Brawn and stop rocking the boat. Mercedes may then have a chance of getting somewhere this year.

In this instance he is right, but in general I can't stand this knob!

He's Mercedes version of that other class A ****head, Helmut Marko!

What the point of either of these two is beyond me!
