So Schumi wasn't slow after all. Rosberg is just really REALLY underrated. Beating Hammy at his own game. Interesting.

Rosberg is actually the "New Senna" ?

good result for the Mercedes team, especially Nico, only just under a 10th of a second in it. So whoever gets to the front first gets the win with the other being expected to hold the rest of the field up?

Makes sense given the nature of the track i would think

The car was built for Nico indeed. But 3 poles is really nothing to brag about if he doesn't at least convert them to a podium, much less a win.

Guys check the points. That's all that matters in F1. Lewis has more than Rosberg. Unless Nico is having an outstanding race and is totally dominant, if the opportunity arises the team will get Lewis ahead of him with strategy. Ross Brawn is a master at that.

Even if Nico wins and Lewis comes second, Lewis will still have a clear points advantage. Given that Ross has pressure to have a driver challenging for the championship, if you were in his place you would back your leading horse.
