F1 » Rosberg disputes Hamilton claims

If anybody seriously thinks Rosburg did it on purpose they are deluded, it was a racing accident and the stewards confirmed that. I'm also sure that Rosburg has a point to prove, why would'nt he? he wants to be World Champion as well. To suggest he did it on purpose when it ultimately cost him a win is just daft, no one can be sure of the results of a collision accidental or otherwise and no one should know that better than Hamilton who has a long history of dubious collisions which are never his fault and talking rubbish on a regular basis. Hamilton has been unlucky and the pendulum is just as likely to swing his way as stay how it is. The fact that the Mercedes management appear to differ is not surprising as I believe there are different loyalties within the team, my guess if that team orders are used they will favour Hamilton but thats just my take on things.

F1 » McLaren confirms Whitmarsh departure

Surprised he has hung around for so long I expect RD had him tied up in a nice little legal parcel. RD has had no great effect so far but I expect him to sack Button and bring someone in, maybe the deal is done and he is waiting until the end of the season when the new premier sponsor and driver can be announced in one go. Does'nt look as if it will be Alonso now, maybe Hamilton if he gets beaten by Rosburg, I don't see Vettel going there but Mr Minardi seems to think so, mind you he's always get's the wrong end of the stick. best bet is Grosjean.

F1 » Boullier admits driver uncertainty ‘uncomfortable’

It's pretty obvious that Button is going maybe to enforced retirement or to Indycars or DTM, whatever he seems very relaxed about it considering he will be out of a decent drive, he does'nt have any money either so it's unlikely Marussia or Caterham will sign him up! Magnussen will hopefully stay on alongside the new signing. Sorry for Button but he has been in the wrong car for most of his career and when he had a distinct advantage with Brawn he faded away as the advantage disappeared having done enough to secure his only championship. He's a nice guy but has never delivered the goods in a consistent way and his inability to qualify well has plagued his career, his time has gone and Mclaren should have the decency to tell him so, so that he has a reasonably chance of picking up a drive in the DTM or Indycars.

F1 » Button: The best man isn’t winning

Did'nt realise Button was such a Hamilton fan, he had enough problems with him to know better. Hamilton is probably the fastest driver on the grid but that does not tell the entire story, he's not averse to driving into other drivers and claiming that it was there fault and a lot of people think that he is not the complete package, he has been unlucky but that is something every driver has, there's little point in going around blaiming everybody under the sun, it happens and he needs to get over it. The reality is that there is very little between Hamilton and Rosburg and Button should know that, they both enjoy the sort of advantage Button had and need to sort out their problems because Ricciardo is getting ever closer.

F1 » Lauda: ‘Lewis did nothing wrong’

An inevertible result of having two NO1s and letting them race and no more. Hamilton takes every chance he can get and a number where he can't but he still go's for it. I see in this a move to support Hamilton as De Facto NO1 within the team and force Rosburg to accept team orders. Unfortunate but an inevertible result of ultimately being unable to control two people who both want to win.

F1 » Grosjean: Move to ‘big four’ the target

It is obvious to most that Mclaren are undecided about their future drivers, if they can't land Alonso/Hamilton/Vettel then they will have to take somebody else if they decide that there is no point in keeping Button. Boullier is Grosjean's manager so there is a strong link. I doubt that Mclaren will land any of the above three because they are well aware that Mclaren has'nt produced a good car for several years so they will have to take a second stringer with potential or keep Button. I thought Alonso would possibly go back to Mclaren but it looks as if he's at Ferrari to the end of his career. Grosjean is fast enough to give Button plenty of trouble if he stays as he's not exactly thrashing Magnussen.

F1 » Maldonado keen for Grosjean to stay

He needs to worry about his future not Grosjean's, money he may have but for how long, his backers won't keep pumping money in unless he improves and gets a good car, at the moment he is an accident waiting to happen and does'nt appear able to improve his racecraft, a win he has but the chances of a second are less than nil within two years he will be gone, there's a long line of drivers after a drive many of then with money, oh and talent!
