F1 » Rosberg not surprised by Hamilton difficulties

This is an interesting difference between these two, and makes me feel even more that Rosberg is probably the smarter of them. And that has nothing to do with upbringing or studying. When all the media frenzy is going on around them, Rosberg tries to take a step back and focus on what matters, tone down the controversy, get on with it. Hamilton on the other hand seems to get carried away with the media frenzy and get tangled up in it. It's like he just cares too much what people think and write about him, so he keeps giving the press what they want, walking into every trap they ever set for him. Nico, meanwhile, takes a more strategic approach. Like I've said before, the quotes Hamilton has been feeding the press recently really are polarising, and they will be even within the team. How that plays out we will find out in time, but I don't think his big mouth will be to his advantage considering how well established Nico is there.

F1 » Vettel: You shouldn’t be at war with your team-mate….

I think Ricciardo and Vettel are a much better pairing on a personal level than Vettel and Mark was. It will be very difficult to get under Daniel's skin, he'll just smile, shake it off and come back just as strong the next time. Webber was a tough guy, and even if I appreciated that and he was often in the right, I think that sometimes made the relationship worse. I don't think Vettel is unreasonable (except on track...), and with a more laidback and easy-going guy next to him I think it will work a lot better. In these multi-situations I think Dan will probably defend or overtake if he can, but if he can't he won't make a big fuss of it. At least that's what we've seen so far. And on the topic of "Look who's talking", you could definitely say that but also, he does have first hand experience of it. I think it's interesting to see him come out and say that, I reckon he's just being insightful and realistic. What's done is done, but it would probably have been better if they'd done it

F1 » Hamilton: I wish you could see the data

I think it'll be a bit hard to REMAIN respectful. He has been all over the media insinuating that his team mate and supposed friend is a cheater, and even that his team are working against him. How is that respectful? Seems like he thinks he's being really gracious by letting this go, but I fear he'll be running out of friends to go bowling with in this garage too pretty soon... But hey, at least he's emulating his hero Senna, he had the world against him too! Yay! Well, now we know all this maturing stuff was nonsense. He's still his own worst enemy.

F1 » Lowdon: Points a great reward

Definitely a great story, and an inspired drive from Bianchi. However I do feel for Kobayashi, who had his car damaged from contact with Jules during the overtake. Now don't get me wrong, I don't think it was a dirty move, just a nice and cheeky, opportunistic pounce so well done to Jules but unfortunate for Kamui. Thing is though, I like and rate them both and to be honest, think of what could have been. Wouldn't it have been brilliant to see the two of them battling for both teams' first points throughout the second part of the race, only for a late retirement to reward them both with points?

F1 » Rosberg escapes penalty, keeps pole

Of course there will always be some nutters who see conspiracies against their hero everywhere and will be conviced it was cheating regardless, but think about this: the stewards did investigate, they had access to all telemetry and they decided it was an honest mistake. And the team says the same thing. So how do you, without access to any data whatsoever, somehow know better that it was not? And about the yellows, of course they were there, the escape road was blocked and if someone else would overcook it in the same place it could be very dangerous. It's no different from having a yellow out if someone's stuck in a gravel trap outside a corner. It's just the way it works, nothing strange about that at all. And yeah, finally Lewis' Senna reference is just waaay over the top. Drama queen, much?

F1 » POLL: Did Rosberg deliberately go off in Q3 in Monaco?

There is some data available. Hamilton's S1 was improved by about 0.07 seconds before the yellow, but that was still slower than Nico's best S1 from his provisional pole lap. Plus, there's nothing to say Nico couldn't have improved his time too. These numbers can be turned and twisted many a way but I definitely think it's quite rich and reeks of entitlement to say he was robbed of pole. No he wasn't, but he was robbed of his second chance to go for pole. A good chance, that much is certain, but it still would have been very tight. And to those who say Nico should have been more humble about the way he won this pole: he probably would have, if it wasn't for a certain few Hamilton quotes earlier this week. I can see how a couple of extra fist pumps would have been most tempting in Nico's situation... And finally, could this be the dumbest poll ever? The stewards have had their say, so why would you have a poll about it? Feeding the trolls while chasing the clicks I imagine...

F1 » Hamilton: My hunger is different to Rosberg’s

As brilliantly quick a driver as he is, to be honest he just doesn't seem all that bright. Like someone pointed out, he has been trying a lot of mind games before and they have never ever been good. And he really doesn't need them either, he's got the speed to do his talking on the track. This kind of reminds me about how Ralf Schumacher went on about how Montoya had an advantage after 9/11, because since he was from such a violent country it didn't affect him as much as the others. Not very classy. And yeah, according to Wikipedia Hamilton's dad was an "IT Manager" so he's hardly a working class hero...
