In this Lewis vs Rosberg discussion, I agree with Ben over richard. Nico is a one grand prix race winner, while Lewis is a multiple race winner and world champion. Go figure.

Just because commentators make a statement does not always mean they are right. Otherwise richard would also have agreed with John Watson when he said that Vettel should apologise to Webber over Multi21.

And Niki Lauda and Stirling Moss make statements all the time..........but are they always right.........

f1 rules. get real! lulu is a multi race winner, PURELY because he was parachuted into the best car. nico won a race in a car that was very uncompetitive, and has never been in the same privileged situation as lulu.
but they are now in the same car, and their performance is pretty equal.
bergers comment (and others) show that other more qualified commentators have assessed both drivers on their merits, and if it upsets you that nico is reckoned to be on a par with lulu, you just have to accept it. otherwise, write to Gerhard, Jackie, damon etc and tell them they have it all wrong.

richard, going by your general logic then, Vettel is winning multiple races ONLY because he is in the best car...

The stats speak for themselves, no matter what opinions some so-called commentators may have. I doubt you'll find too many operators within the F1 paddock who believe that Nico is a better/faster driver than Lewis. Besides, you cannot claim they are equal until we get to the end of the season and see where they both stand points-wise! If Nico beats Lewis, then I will admit that he is the better driver.

f1 rules. (are you from Denmark???) first of all, it was not me who was making the claim, but I said that others equated thm. however, I do agree. and don't forget, nico has out quailed lulu twice, and has beaten him once (but robbed of this by brawn) and now he has out qualied lulu. with lulu saying he doesn't know how to set up the car, and looking completely peed off about it. this has nothing to do with vettel, who only had the best car for ONE of his wdcs. he EARNED the others.

but as I said, I was comparing lulus opportunity to nicos.
