Well well well Rosberg hooks a Q3 lap up properly and the result is nearly half a second faster than Sham, wonder what Brawn was whispering there, this is what it looks like in all the practice sessions and early quali sessions this season and also winter testing, I'm sure the Sham brigade will have plenty of excuses, fastest driver in F1 my backside! Rosberg can't live with Webber who in turn can't live with Vettel now imagine what Vettel would do to Sham in the same car!

I like to see Lulu get his **** handed to him as much as the next guy and think that Rosberg is under rated, but I don't think we can assume anything on the basis of 1 qualifying session.

@ bob

No we can't base everything on 1 quali session but the fact is Nico has been faster all through winter testing and so far this season been faster in nearlt all the FP sessions and even early quali sessions, a few poor Q3 laps shows Nico does choke but this lap compared to Hamilton's is the real measure, you could even tell in the race at Malaysia, don't be surprised if Mercedes gives Hamilton every chance tomorrow though which is a shame, and where's all the people saying Raikkonen and Webber would be fast in quali?

Oh dear, I arrived too late... the Hami-haters have arrived already...

Hami was quicker in China - Rosberg gets slagged off, Niceo quicker in Bahrain - Lewis gets slagged off :p

So if "fact is Robserg is faster on raw speed than Sham" then how come "Sham's" qualifying record against him is 3-1? and if Hamilton has a better record over the year will Rosberg still be faster?
