F1 » Hamilton: We both made mistakes

Unfortunately Lewis cannot race without resorting to intimidating tactics like launching from way back into a corner and hoping others will scatter or taking others lines and not being content until they are bullied off the track. Now if Mercedes have told Lewis that he has to restrain this style then the title must be Nicos. Nico is the cleaner driver who does respect others in wheel to wheel racing as do most others. Just take the battles with Alonso and Ricciardo as an example of hard but fair racing. So now we will see how effective the Merc management have been. My view is that Lewis cannot race in any other way and hope that Nico does now not back down if being bullied. Then we will see how much integrity and bottle Wolff Lowe and Lauda really have. I predict more controversy at Monza.

F1 » Rosberg apologises to Hamilton and fans

Yet more poor management on behalf of Mercedes. If Nico had anything to apologise for then the stewards would have been involved. They deemed it a racing incident as did any true racing fan. On this occasion Nico chose not to be force off track and thus be further disadvantaged. Now I do hope that if the same situation arises Nico has the bottle to do it again. It is encumbant on both drivers in situations like these to give room, note how Alonso/Ricciardo have managed it this year. Lewis knew where Nico was but decided to take his line, as he usually does, but on this occasion he (Nico) wasn't going to be bullied. Mercedes management need to stop with the knee jerk reactions. If they don't want contact then just tell the drivers the race is won or lost in qualifying and they hold to that. If they are saying they want them to race then let them get on with it warts n all.

F1 » Hamilton ‘will always put the team first’

"Lewis, please let Nico through. He is on a different strategy to you and it will give the team a chance of a win" "Er Paddy go swivel I'm too busy putting my team first." Where does this guy get off with his bull you know what. And all this concern for the Brit supporters. There is only one concern for Lewis...Team Hamilton as Hungary amply proved. We're not all gullible idiots Lewis.

F1 » Hamilton/Mercedes contract talks on hold

After the attitude displayed by Lewis this year he may not have many avenues open to him. He is not a team player, is apt to shoot his mouth off irrelevant to the damage it may cause the team and he is proving a liability on the track. Nico is gaining the upper hand in both performance and psychology. He is also a better ambassador for Mercedes. I don't think Lewis has done himself many favours in the paddock this year and will struggle to find a decent drive if Mercedes let him go, unless a team wants to devote itself solely to him, maybe Ron will get his lovechild back after all, god help McLaren if so. One thing is for sure Lewis will not alter and with Nicos new attitude of matching Lewis' bullish behaviour on track then expect more fireworks and more verbal diahorrea to come from the Hamilton camp.

F1 » Rosberg disputes Hamilton claims

Thank you Nico for not entering into the WWE type hype being whipped up by the Hamilton camp and being aided and abetted by the Merc management. No knee jerk reaction Wolff? You and Lauda have already made it and once again you have allowed one of your drivers to slander the other by telling an outright lie. This clownish melodramatic behaviour has to be stopped. We don't need Wrestlemania in F1. Feel the pain Nico indeed. Lewis has baited Nico for long enough and has only himself to blame for what happened. Myself I'm just so glad Nico has manned up and decided to be just as selfish and bullish on the track as Lewis. So from now on if you want to shut the door on Nico, Lewis and not give room then you can expect more and that's the clear message Nico was giving Lewis post race.Hamilton should be censured by Merc for his post meeting comments.It was a racing incident, no intent involved and Nico had a perfect right to hold his line and not be forced off track

F1 » Hamilton: Rosberg admits he hit me deliberately

More WWE type crap from Lewis. Nico did not admit he hit Lewis deliberately he said he was making a point in that he was no longer going to be run off the track by Lewis anymore and was going to stand his ground. Now it was clumsy but it was a racing incident, no stewards involved remember This is for Mercedes to try and sort out and I think not much will change. Neither Lewis or Nico can back down now. So Lewis always goes on about Senna and now he has his very own Senna/Prost battle on his hands.

F1 » Rosberg booed on Spa podium

Shameful behaviour. Nothing but. This is F1 not the WWE wrestling, despite Lewis attempts to reduce it to that level with his stupid comments. Mercedes should stop all the macho guff coming out of Lewis in his attempts to play mind games with Nico. Well the mind games backfired. All this talk of wanting "Nico to feel the pain" has truly backfired. It has forced Nico to finally man up and take the same type of risks Lewis takes. If the positions were reversed Lewis would have taken the same chance. The after race comments by Lewis and Mercedes management were shameful. Yes they should be miffed but don't blame racers for racing. They have said no team orders consistently and this was bound to happen sooner or later and now all of a sudden they are flinging mud. Poor management of both drivers.

F1 » Rosberg booed on Spa podium

Yearby23: Just seen the video of the overtake attempt. Hamilton had the racing line throughout and Rosberg tried to go around the outside to get the inside line for the next corner..There was no room on the inside and he punctured Hamilton.. Not a Hamilton fan but Rosberg was at fault here.
Stewards must have missed that one then????

F1 » Parabolica gravel trap replaced at Monza

Seemingly its not the whole turn being tarmacked only part of it. There is still gravel behind and beside the tarmac, toward the straight. If you look at the overhead plan any F1 driver going off onto the tarmac there would be taking a very strange line indeed. I think anyone over pushing or attempting an overtake at the normal point, and messing up, may still be visiting the gravel. Seemingly it is at the request of the FIA but no specific reason has been given, it was first requested in January this year and has only just been completed.
