F1 » Rosberg blasts Hamilton for ‘compromising race’


If Nico was on Hamilton's gearbox when he complained over the radio then he might have a point. But he was 2.4 seconds behind and not closing and really has little to complain about. Hamilton immediately hit the prescribed time given him by the team immediately after that, and as for managing the tires, Mercedes were rightfully concerned about the Ferrari's pace on the hard compound and were trying to make the options last as long as possible.

F1 » Alonso warns rivals to ‘enjoy this moment’…


MrJones85:
benignlyindifferent: JB has made a career of performing as well as or better than his highly rated teammates. Alonso has made a career of pouting when his teammates are as fast as he. If Button outperforms him over the next few races, and if Alonso pouts, the team (and Honda) will embrace JB even more and Alonso's tenure might be short.
Oh, god! Here we go again. A career? The only time I can remember Button outperforming a higher rated teammate was that one year against Hamilton when he was going through all that drama with Scherzinger. Other than that, when was the other times?

I'm not biased or prejudiced against JB. I just don't rate him up there with guys like Alonso, Hamilton, and Vettel and there's nothing wrong with that. He's a very good driver and a champion which is a whole lot more than some other drivers can say.
Fair enough. That is your perspective and I understand it, but, I was suggesting his statistical competition against his more highly rated teammates is rather good, and it is, and therefore Alonso's comment which presumed FA would be the one for the others to watch might be premature. He may find himself fighting with Button more frequently than planned.
