F1 » Ecclestone seeks settlement to end bribery trial

Nope. People and organizations frequently settle without acknowledgement of guilt, whether guilty or not, and it is an effective strategy to prevent dragging conflicts through the courts for extended periods of time. It appears that as Bernie's criminal case is winding down, and it appears he is likely to be found not guilty due to lack of clear evidence, by offering an accepted settlement he will remove the threat of any civil lawsuit. Brilliant timing by his legal team. Is he guilty?Likely not in the eyes of the court regardless of what we may think.

F1 » Wolff: Mercedes ‘comfortable’ with Hamilton’s stance

Wow! This comment by Wolff contradicts his earlier statement that Hamilton's actions cost Nico the race win. And to suggest that the split strategy was to give both an opportunity for victory is very questionable. I do not mean there was a deliberate attempt to undermine Hamilton, rather, it was a continuation of the strategy aimed to maximize points from starting last. Mercedes clearly did not evolved their strategies through the race quickly enough and Wolff clearly spoke before considering all of the information.

F1 » Hamilton: Usual rules didn’t apply

Well rules are rules, until they are disobeyed for the correct reasons and then the team bosses agree they should never have been issued. I doubt Nico would have moved over in this situation and the critics of Lewis would have screamed had he been the one asking Nico to move over if he could not even get into his tow. Going forward, I suspect both drivers will still play fair if they are truly not fighting for the same piece of tarmac by the end of the race.

F1 » Hamilton cost Rosberg win chance – Wolff

Hamilton is a one hit wonder? If you mean 27 victories in 140 starts and a world championship to boot then I guess so. However, like his antics or not, those in the know seem to think he's fairly talented and are willing to pay him large sums of money to driver their cars. And he did not win these races by moving over for his teammate but for extraordinary circumstances.

F1 » Hamilton cost Rosberg win chance – Wolff

I think Toto feels compelled to make a statement support in Nico as Lauda made one in support of Hamilton. Might also show that even the top brass are lining up behind drivers. Whatever, when Nico was first catching lewis they had the opportunity to hiring both in for fresh softs, ensuring a Hamilton victory and a Rosberg second place, if you believe Toto's logic. I am not a conspiracy theorist but it is evident that Nico was given the preferred strategy due to his starting position and the team failed to react quickly enough to change strategy for Hamilton.

F1 » Rosberg seeks answers for Hamilton defiance

Lauda admits the team panicked and that Lewis was correct in ignoring the team orders. After all, Lewis would have had to break off a battle to slow enough to allow Nico to pass. As for costing Nico the race win? Nonsense. Lewis could have pitted for new softs at the same time to be on the same strategy and been in contention to pass Alonso at the end. Really, the Mercedes strategies for both were not ideal, understandable for the varied conditions.
