Forzavalentino: Thats Strange!!! The last time Rosberg talked about sharing data he said that drivers would always hide advantages from their team mates????!!!!
Someone get told off did they??????


I think Nico has been consistent in his attitude on data share Forzavalentino. He has said what you say before and reiterates it in the latter part of the article.
"But of course in the end there comes a point where I am fighting him and so at that point I will always try and keep certain advantages, as he will too. That is very normal. When you are fighting each other you are always going to try and keep some advantages over the other, but never compromising the team as a whole. It is a fine line and we need to find the line for each of us where it is.”

it is not nico who shares his data, but the team! lulu asks what balance, fuel etc is nico using, and the team tell him! i hardly think that nico, when pulling away from lulu, tells the pits to advise lulu how to save a 10th or two .

As I read it the drivers will always share data, unless they can somehow not if it gives them an advantage. Too funny. Reminds me of the Piquet and Mansell partnership when Piquet discovered a certain rear differential worked better (Mansell was golfing, I think) and at the last minute they added it on race day. Piquet won by a considerable margin and Mansell was not impressed. Senna and Schumacher understood these games well and neither left the track early and both were massively focused on understanding every little bit of data gleaned from both cars. Back to Rosberg, if he finds an edge he should use it, and so should Lewis.
