F1 » Hamilton cost Rosberg win chance – Wolff


George Zaidan:

Any F1 driver could win in the Mercedes. And if anyone thinks Mercedes is just going to shrivel up in 2015 they just don't know the rules.
I'd amend that to: 'any driver who can finish a race'. I'd bet money that Pastor Moldonado couldn't win a WDC with a Mercedes. I think if the points were tied for the championship at the last race and only cars running were Pastor and the one tied, somehow Pastor would find a way to dnf.

F1 » Hamilton: Usual rules didn’t apply


kma55: These orders to let teammates through only make sense when the constructors championship is at stake, or one driver is not in contention for the drivers championship. Neither of these things are true in this situation, Mercedes are so far ahead of everyone else there really shouldn't be any orders given.
Most astute comment yet that I've read about the move over order.

F1 » Hamilton cost Rosberg win chance – Wolff


I thought the call for Hamilton to let Rosberg pass was strange, to say the least. Rosberg wasn't exactly on Hamilton's gearbox when the call went out. Personally, I think Hamilton is faster than Rosberg, but Rosberg is more consistent. Over the years consistency has won more WDCs than outright speed. Perhaps Mercedes is betting on consistency rather than speed. That being said, Sunday's call by Mercedes to Hamilton was dead wrong. If Hamilton wins the WDC over Rosberg in Abu Dhabi, there may be some merit to the double points scheme, after all. Sunday's race was the best race I've seen in a long time. At least it shut up those making comments about F1 being boring.

Mark: I am more interested in the final lap. Nico needs to hold his line and stop letting Lewis push him off of the track. Nico is leading so a double dnf is better than losing points to Lewis. Toughen up in these wheel to wheel battles.
Not so certain about the double dnf proposition. If I were Mercedes, I'd keep an eye on Ricciardo's Red Bull. Especially with the specter of double points looming in Abu Dhabi.

F1 » Rosberg capitalises on more Hamilton woes


I doubt any Mercedes team mechanic would deliberately sabotage Hamilton's or Rosberg's car. I would think a position as a mechanic on the Mercedes F1 team is a highly coveted position. One that is very exciting and pays better than what a mechanic could earn outside of F1. Conspiracy theories abound. Did you know it was actually Elvis who shot President Kennedy from the grassy knoll in Dallas? He wanted Jack out of the way so he could have Jackie, as they were secret lovers. Now, you know the real story.

F1 » Rosberg capitalises on more Hamilton woes


R6Ryder: I'm really trying to enjoy this season in F1. This kind of **** is making it very difficult to enjoy the title fight. I wander if all the hamilton haters will discredit Nico and say it was "gifted" since I'm 110% sure that if the roles were reversed everyone would say Lewis only won by default.
You do realize the winner of Abu Dhabi scores 50 points? There is a distinct possibility Rosberg could lead by 49 points going into the last race and a DNF could leave him out of the WDC by 1 point if the second highest points driver wins. Would you then say the Championship winner is gifted?
