@ robocop - "Richard, i see that 9 drivers including mark are faster than Sebastian Vettel"

In your dreams robocop - when we get nine drivers faster than Sebastian Vettel F1 has achieved its ambition!

I get a laugh out of listening to how some people believe that some drivers can only get their heads around over steer or under steer as if they are driving some sunday saloon that behaves like a boat.

The fact is Lewis had a bad race last go, just like his teammate the round before. According to a website, Mercedes have been running FRIC since 2011, the fact that Nico would be more familiar, and more up to par with setup per racing venue is not a surprise.

Lewis is on the backfoot with respect to Mercedes and FRIC, but only because hes coming to grips with their car/setup (profile per track), not because he can only do over steer. Again, the commentators preaching to the masses keeps raising it's head in internet discussions. I swear those guys get quoted more than the bible on the whole.

Yes at the 2011 korean GP I saw the first photo/picture of the Mercedes rear pull rod hydraulic interconnection (FRIC) but does anybody think that mclaren wasn't using pull rod at the rear and FRIC?
Rosberg managed the race in Spain on three stops and finished sixth while Lulu having to do four stops managed twelfth, both were using Mercedes latest FRIC know how.
Maybe PROF X can tell us what and way the difference between Mercedes drivers, but please don't start off on car balance again!
