Ross Brawn says Mercedes has to work hard to improve its reliability after Nico Rosberg's retirement in Hungary

It's occurred to me that Merc are looking a bit like Ferrari were in the late 90s - just before Brawn/Schu arrived. Reliability was terrible. Once that was fixed, 5 WDCs on the trot.
So the future is looking quite bright for Rosberg.

Of course, any successful/dominant team HAS to have reliability - no finish, no points - and it doesn't matter who is driving. Even Moses would have failed at the Red Sea if the wheels had all fallen off the carts.

That's the most pathetic comment I've read on here in ages.

A couldn't give a rats ass who was driving for Merc when they did their secret test. If you read my posts back then I said the drivers were blameless and just doing what they were told to do.

Seriously, if anyone says anything negative about Merc you don't have to take it as a personal attack on Hamilton, grow up. Seriously.

My personal view is the Merc management cheated. Not to say the other teams haven't...but they were caught and the FIA crumbled. Other teams have cheated and been caught and hammered. Missing the young driver test really affected there speed didn't it????? :rolleyes:

it was interesting to watch brawns reaction to lulus first win, to that when nico had his wins! nico just got a few hugs amongst brawn and the pit crew, but when lulu on, you would have thought that brawn had just won a billion on the lotto. it is pretty obvious who is the favoured driver!

Welcome back Richard,

You've missed much hilarity, sadly Lulu's win in Hungary woke up the fanboys who had been pleasantly quiet but that race win was the confirmation they needed to prove that Lulu is the greatest driver ever!

As for your favoured driver comment, did you hear Lauda's craziest comment yet? Lulu's win in Hungary was "the greatest drive I've seen in my life"
Oh dear.

Oh RGT was most impressed by Lauda's comment, he was so excited I'm sure he was running round in circles clutching his *blank* in case he wet himself!

We had it in the low 30's a couple of weeks ago, more than warm enough for me.

Taipan, they have been in a dormant state (hibernation) for quite some time now, even Lulu himself was pretty worried, could hardly concentrate, “i need a win because Rosberg got a win”, it's the brakes, it's the tyres. It's the car.
No wonder that most of his one eyed fan boys matches his mentality (same line of reasoning).
would prefer to be in a place were it's in the low thirties as it's been a constant thirty five in the shade out here.

@Richard - Welcome back. I was starting to get worried about your absence.

On Brawn, given what they are paying Hamilton it is no surprise that he would be favored. He needs Hamilton to perform so that he doesn't look like a fool for paying him so much.

Welcome back richard, as you can see i'm being persecuted by the usual suspects if it is not 107 seven calling me a headless chicken it is Taipan slandering me on another thread. ..

Was Ross Brawn and lulu hugging session bringing back memories of those historic days of Uncle Ron and lulu. And did you like those moves Lewis put on mark in Hungary thought Vettel had a hard race though.

RGB, Wrong/incorrect I did not compared you to/called you a walking/talking headless chicken, as I have already explained the ones compared to a headless chicken would have felt offended by such comparisons.
