I'm so surpised how good Merc is doing this year. I think it is safe to say that no one saw this coming. I personally think part of their recent success if from the FRIC suspension. I know they had it previously but I think they perfected it this season. I'm a RBR fan but I hope Merc can keep up the good work.

Why don't they give Nico the "good" car so he doesn't have a mechanical failure? Maybe because they have to make the "20m Man" look like he was worth it. I'd like to see Hamilton's engine blow in the next 2 races to make things fair for Nico's career.

RGT, You do seem ever so impressed by the points gap between Lulu and Nico, have you considered what size the gap would be without team orders favouring Lulu and the 3 mechanical failures for Nico?

I actually have Rob 5 mechanical failures for Button and 4 for Lulu.

More interestingly 3 crashes for Button in that time and 7 for Lulu. But no doubt most of Lulu's crashes were the teams fault....

RGB (this time posting as FW14), so yours were not suppositions when posting about Whitmarsh and Button while your Lulu was being beaten at mclaren.
STUEY99, is it amazing to you that people now hate mclaren because Lulu now drives for Mercedes?.
Whitewashed tombs the lot.

yeah, emotion is never a substitute for sound reasoning, even if it can best the best.

The best part of seeing Lewis win is listening to the haters lose their minds.

btw, you guys notice how Taipan completely ignored 'dnf' in his reply. That is because Jenson retired once to a mech failure (fuel) and got in a tussle with Koba for both of his retirements that year. Yes he had an exhaust issue, etc etc, but lets talk dnf's shall we.

*in fact Bahrain, Malysia, Canada and Monaco were more of an issue about getting tanlged up with koba and getting stuck in the mid pack than to do with a fault with any technical aspect of the car.

Lewis on the other hand a puncture dnf, was taken out by grosjean, was taken out by the hulk, TWO technical failures (dnfs) and loads more pit stop issues.

& yes, despite DNFing 3 more times than Button he still finished 2 points ahead in the championship.
