Bridgestone were trying to curtail Red Bull's performance with the passed up tires, the better the tires get, the more the divide will grow unfortunately, many people just cannot comprehend how much faster that car is than any other out there. Ferrari have another chance mixing up the formula next year, but I really doubt they will be able to adapt or optimize as well as RedBull and it will again turn in to complete domination as Red Bull own the market in terms of engineering. All the sport needs is a well moderated weight penalty system to spice up the show, the unsafe tires and constant rule changes are a bit of a joke,

@Doctor G - that is funny when I read the article I got the impression that it was about both Merc drivers not just Hamilton. The tires are what they are. It is up to the drivers to get the most out of the package that they have. Complaining that the tires don't suit a particular driver just emphasizes that said driver is not a complete driver.

While Richard's and Taipan's comments on Hamilton are rather predictable if you don't like them it is easy enough to ignore them if they bother you.

@mark they do it to watch the fanboys fire up lol then start bringing up everything that happened in the past in there defence @ tai and richard just look at the race and qualifying between hamilton and rosberg clearly hamilton is i wouldnt say smashes it over rosberg coz the are quite close but can pull it off better than rosberg over the majority of races, taipan you aint stupid your a stat fanatic so give the guy a break its his 1st season with merc and his outscoring rosberg 2 to 1 everytime

Paddock, the main reason that I dislike fanboys is that they talk nonsense and create garbage to hype up their hero.
I'll give you an example...

(Lulu) " is outscoring rosberg 2 to 1 everytime"

Now people that don't know any better might read that and believe you, just the same sort of garbage that we got when Lulu was supposedly "destroying" Button.
For the record Lulu has 169 points this year and Rosberg has 144 and most people with a brain or even a calculator will be able to work out that that's not 2 to 1.
Lulu is extremely overrated by his mental followers, that's just a fact and if they don't like me giving them a hard time stop making up garbage. Simples.

im not talking about points taipan, im talking about races and qualifying results between them as teamates "note" that i said they are quite close, im not even a massive hamilton fan like to see him do well coz im british plus some races have only been 2 points between (yes 1 of them was when the team let him pass rosberg) but quali and race results are more or less 2 to 1

Paddock oh so OUTSCORING means qualifying not points?

Oh well silly me for not understanding your cryptic post, I was foolish enough to read it literally, obviously that was a mistake!

I see the civil servant Troll is back.
