    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Whoopsy,

    What was your take on turn one from the start off?. That was not understeer from LH's car, imo.


    I was out having dinner so I missed the start of the race. but from reading what happened, that's just typical of his aggressive style. Not the first time that when Lewis starts from P2 that he would aggressively barged into turn 1 to try and take 1st place, that's his MO. But he usually do have a better start than Nico when he is in P2 in order to try such a move as he would need to make up a car length worth of distance. 

    Lewis' driving style does reminds me a lot of his idol Senna. He has matured a lot through the years, he used to be a whiny baby like Alonso and Nico to now just sucking it up and race. Looked at practice and qualifying, think he was the only one that didn't complaint about the rain and extreme wetness. He was hired to do a job and he just gets right down to business.

    Saw the start and it is obvious that LH could have turned harder, but anyone with a bit of a winner inside himself would have done like LH did.

    NR is totally owned by LH, and he cannot see a way out of this position. He is in a bad situation, and not getting much support from Mercedes. At the same time he is trapped at Mercedes, as there is no other car on the grid where he can at least have a fight for the Championship Smiley

    Rosberg just needs to give it a few months and see if he can do better next year.

    The start of 2016 for NR is very important. He needs to send LH and Merc a early message. Hope he gets equal tools..

    And please NR, don't let LH bully you on track, regardless of your boss's instructions.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    And, perhaps, I will keep fingers crossed for 2016 as NR was quite unlucky this season with all those funny things that happened (only to him...), like the steering wheel in Singapore....etc...


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Hmmm, I don't know about Hamilton. Now he is okay, but I remember a time when he wasn't doing too well and in those days he always seemed to come up with accusations and comments towards others. Only time will tell whether he really has grown as a person, or whether the spoilt kid attitude is just in the background because he is getting his ways.

    Rosberg seems to be less of a "knife between the teeth" kind of driver, but like mentioned in one of the posts above, he has found himself in a difficult situation. Still, no excuse to be a crybaby... suck it up and at least congratulate Lewis.

    I feel so bad for Alonso. There was a time where I couldn't stand him and his ceaseless accusations either, but now it seems that he has consistently bet on the wrong horse for the last couple of years... must be really frustrating for him, and I think it is the sign of a great sportsman that you only hear him talk in positive and constructive wording nowadays.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Gauss:

    Rosberg cracks under pressure while Hamilton does not. There's more to becoming a world champion than just being quick. Consistancy and keeping a cool head when it matters are just as important. 

    Hamilton has a super big ego and this self confidence helps him with pressure.

    Rosberg is too focused on what Hamilton is doing and he also seems to get too emotional at times.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    NR started at Mercedes as a natural number 2 to MS in the early days..

    Seems he has failed to be able to 'step up to the plate' and take the number 1 position when LH replaced MS... 

    Maybe it's just his historical mind-set that has prevented him from progressing?  Or, maybe Mercedes has always wanted it that way...yes

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    I think it's pretty clear that Mercedes chose it to be that way. At the first sign of conflict, they sided with Hamilton and threw Rosberg under the bus.


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Rosberg is blaming a gust of wind for his mistake that cost him the race win in Austin. Smiley
