F1 » Rosberg disappointed but not dismissing chances

richard: there are two things to remember. first of all, in sector 1, nico was faster. in sector 2, lulu was faster each time, and nico also was faster every time in sector 3, giving him an edge on lulu on all laps. however, nico had a mess up on his last lap, so he could well have been ahead of lulu. also, the second positon is the favoured one at spa!
One more thing to remember... "even quali is not a true indication of race pace" :)

F1 » Hamilton takes it easy with commanding Spa win

Mercedes are not there to please the crowd, they are there to win the constructors championship and the way to do that is to come 1-2 in every race. If MB are employing team orders to protect this position, that is just race management and is not breaking any regs. If one of their drivers doesn't like that, they need to remember that they can be easily replaced. From a fans point of view it may seem unfair or unsporting but that is not MB's problem and they can wave the book of rules and regs around proving their 'innocence'. Its like when the MPs were criticised for claiming expenses like duck houses and they insisted they had done nothing wrong as they were not breaking any rules.

F1 » Grosjean: I can’t believe we’re on the podium!

His efforts in 2012 pale into insignificance when compared to Coulthard's 1998 race. Caused the biggest crash ever in F1, dawdled around on the racing line and netted Schumacher's front end and ended up with no penalties at all. Meanwhile, in the here and now, he drove well and deserved his trophy, helped perhaps by Vettel's problems although he was likely to pass him anyway as his tyres were much fresher. Would he have managed it if he had a Renault PU though?

F1 » Grosjean: I can’t believe we’re on the podium!

jimbo123: @mrfill, If my memory serves me right they were racing in heavy rain, visibility was bad, and for Schumacher worse, because being behind Coultard he was driving blind and drove into the back of him! his fault. Hence the fact Coulthard was not penalised at all.
Your memory is excellent. Heavy rain and very poor visibility. Only a complete idiot would drive on the racing line at low speed while the race was active. And all this after the same driver caused the biggest crash ever a couple of hours previously by losing control. Feats which make a Maldonado race day look calm. But with no penalty.
