F1 » Hamilton contract delay not down to #1 status bid


"A desire to attain #1 status in the mercedes team isn't behind the delay". As I said, I agree it is not, as far as the contract is concerned. But here is something about that status. Lulu sees himself as the number one/lead driver at mercedes, what ever he might say and whatever the contract might say. Lulu speaking to APA, "Naturally you always feel there are things you can still improve on, but its hard to always pinpoint what what these are and to tell the team what to focus on, that's what a team leader has to do, i am trying to guide the team, to tell them where to go next". ,

F1 » Hamilton: Only team-mate can provide ‘true race’


After the Chinese race I said that Mercedes are using a new strategy “if their cars ended 1-2 on the grid they are not to race each other”, after the Bahrain qualifying I said that it looks like Nico is trying to slip-out of his obligations to team strategy, and handing Lulu the rope in the process. But once again Mercedes managed to turn Nico into a rear gunner for Lulu. The reason for Mercedes leaving Nico out and running his second stint on harder tyres reflects on Mercedes current strategy towards their two drivers, in short Mercedes forced Nico back into a rear gunner to Lulu, to fight with Vettel and diminish his pace resources.

F1 » Rosberg driving ‘at his best’ in Bahrain Grand Prix


Mercedes failed again to split strategy on their cars levying Nico vulnerable to Kimi, the timing of Mercedes pit stops and tyre decisions were based on covering Vettel, but ignoring Kimi. Vettel pitted lap 13 (tyres 16 laps), his practice data showed he would comfortably run 19-20 laps, the move by FERRARI was to force Mercedes hand, preventing them going round on a tyre preservation strategy like in china, so Nico was pitted on lap 14 and Lulu on lap 15, this created a problem for Nico, losing track positions to Vettel, he was forced to abuse his tyres and brakes to reclaim his place. It is hard to imagine Kimi having actually completed the Nico overtake, or becoming close enough to the WO6, without overheating his brakes and damaging his tyres, Nico drove a fantastic fighting race and merited second place. Vettel’s off which damaged the front wing was attributed to his mistake, the fact that he was unable ro pass a far inferior Williams on much older tyres speaks volumes about dirty
