True.
He seems much more immature than NR.
This is where Nico can really "win."
If he can get into LH's head and start spinning it, who knows where that will lead?
LOL.
I respectfully request an exception be made in my case....British Racing Green:
Green it shall be Oink.

The overwhelming dominance of Mercedes and the significant superiority of Red Bull and Ferrari over the rest of the teams means that points scored by anybody else are unlikely to have any impact on either the Drivers or Constructors Championship, which really is boring, it seems to me. I certainly did not mean to denigrate Marussia's accomplishment.
I knew what you meant.wink.gif

I too seriously doubt there will be much drama going forward.
The non-MB powerunits are clearly inferior.
With the MB unit being vastly better and couple that with a very good chassis (MB's) and it's "game over."

Although Vettel won so often last year, we forget there was always a battle for the other 2 spots on the podium.
After Webber basically gave up, we had Ferrari, Renault, MB, and other teams showing up on the top steps.

This year, the top 2 steps will be MB (barring a DNF).
Certainly DR made a run at it today, but that was only possible because LH lost his stereoscopic vision.

With Adrien Newey's chassis being much, much better than Ferrari's, well, there isn't much drama in the run to 3 & 4.
RB should have those spots locked up easily (again, barring some kind of technical problem).

Dang. Kurt Busch done blowed up. Two hundred miles short of the goal. Massive props for his Indy finish and for going as far as he did. The car let him down, rather than the driver letting the car down.

I was SO hoping to see Ricciardo get around Hamilton after Hamilton said I dont care about Ricciardo. He sure made him care if nothing else. Great job by Ricciardo.
2 Monaco wins in a row for Rosberg. Very rare indeed. I've always liked Nico. Great to see him carry on the family name (wonder what Keke is up to). Love to see him win the World Drivers Championship this year.

Real shame about Raikkonen. That puncture probably cost him a podium. He was running 3rd when he got it. And with Vettel out a good finish would have helped a lot in the Constructors.

We were in the paddock at MotoGP Austin and had the opportunity to talk to him for at least 10 mins. He would have talked longer but unfortunately we had to go meet up at the Forward racing garage to watch the race. It was his first viewing of a live race! He is definitely down to earth and so easy to talk to because he is really into cars and motor sports racing in general. He never even mentioned to us he was doing the "double". We were talking about COTA and wanting to drive the course after having walked the track. I mentioned wanting to do a track day there with my Camaro ZL1 but how expensive it is to "rent" COTA. He was surprised at their prices when I told him. Moment to remember. biggrin.gif

I like Lewis Hamilton and want to see him win the drivers title but he really needs to learn he can't win every race especially your teammate's "home race". Nico owns Monaco and Lewis knew that, henceforth his pouting. I believe even if LH had snatched pole position Nico Rosberg would have beat him on this course. He's got that Senna hunger at Monaco. Sutil showed us how you do passing at Monaco.

Yeah, and i can understand that. As Fernando said, he had no chance to catch the guys in front of him, and nobody behind him was pushing him, so he was just in a pocket driving by himself.

I loved the setting, love the track, but it didnt provide the many big posibilities for fighting for position in the top 5 like i had hoped for.

Do you guys enjoy the under 3-second pits stops in F1? I do NOT.

I really enjoy seeing a smaller number of people actually take 12-14 seconds to change 4 tires and do whatever else they might need to do. Its a lot of enjoyment to me to watch that, and at many races I have sat across from the pits to watch the action there. To me there is no action in the F1 pits.

Yeah, afterwards its impressive to say Wow, they did that in 2.6 seconds, but in actuality, its just not fun to watch a car in, get jacked up, and you blink and its leaving the pit.

Hadnt given it much thought in that respect. But I tend to agree. Its over so fast it might as well just be a stop n go penalty.

I would say it's a lot more than a "mood" issue.

http://www.planetf1.com/driver/18227/9326398/Lauda-has-issue-with-Hamilton-s-mood

No more Ron Dennis to wipe his nose for him and a team mate that now can occasionally be his equal, who seems to relish the mind games.

Perhaps Merc will eventually tire of the crap, and pave the way for a Fred/Lewis swap. Fred is pretty tired of Ferrari having lost their way, and Luca would need an A List driver. Stranger things have happened.

I had not previously read that there were incidents in Spain and Bahrain that were reminiscent of Red Bulls Multi21 deal.
