Taipan, do you follow F1?

Hamilton is in a new team, Rosberg has been settled for some time. The facts -
Melbourne: Ham 1:28.087 Ros 1:28.523
Malaysia: Ham 1:51.699 Ros 1:52.519
Shanghai: 1:34.484 Ros 1:34.861
Bahrain: Ham 1:32.762 Ros 1:32.330
Spain: Ham 1:20.912 Ros 1:20.718
Championship: Ham 50 Ros 14
Podiums: Ham 2 Ros 0

So Rosberg has out qualified him in the final session twice, and you think that makes him better - are you mad?

Favouritism over Alonso? He hammered Button most weekends? Have you thought about running for PM?

woody. I think the question should be asked of you, not ty!
first of all, if not for the acknowledged team orders, the score on podia would be one each. as regards points, but for the team orders, thy would be closer, and then there is the fact that nico also suffered from a dnf.
and as for lulu favouritism over ferdi? well, everyone knows that was the case, and was acknowledged by the team. (dennis " we are racing Alonso") etc
and when button and lulu in the same car, didn't button beat lulu in the wdc standings TWICE?
finally, yes, nico has beaten lulu twice in quali. (40%). doesn't mean a great amount, other than the fact that lulu is not the great driver that the fanboys believe, OR nico is a better driver than lulu fanboys believe.

maybe YOU should run for pm, as you want to manipulate facts to confuse people, rather than accept the truth.

Richard - actually Pal its you that needs to check the facts. Exactly when did Button beat Lewis twice? Please don't tell me you are counting 09 because if you are your a complete idiot because Lewis would have the wins from 07 - 013 - ie 5 - 2 and Lewis is far ahead again this year while Button serves time in a repeat of the car they gave Lewis in 09 as thanks for winning in 08!

Why do people say that Button outscored Lewis in 3 years when the main achievement was Lewis beating Button Twice over three seasons..

Are people being deliberately blind in not knowing that a driver who finishes above his teammate twice out of three seasons is regarded as the better driver even though being a victim of poor strategy calls and mistakes by his then team.

People need to remember a focused Lewis has seen off champions in the same cars, but Nico along with Alonso will be Lewis's stiffest test as 2011 saw tires favoring slower drivers.

@Steve

What the Anti Lewis fans are saying is that,

if Vettel had 600 points in 3 season and also won 2 titles (may be the 3rd he only won 50 points) and

Webber had 605 points over 3 season and didn't win no titles....

To the Anti Lewis brigade Webber is the better.....
