    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    That would be too good to be true, Alonso and Hamilton in the same team and in a top team... that's going to work great, for the fans looking for some exitement in F1 that is ... they better install bumpers on those Mercedes smiley

    It worked out so well the last time!  Even funnier if Kimi wins the title in a Ferrari next year. Smiley


    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    Perfect. Then Kimi signs a two year extension with Ferrari and sits them out collecting the cash. Lol. Awesome. Meanwhile MB comes in third behind Red Bull. 

    Personally MB should sign Max. He could win several in a row. 


    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    Max won't go to Mercedes. He'll stay at Redbull for at least 2017.

    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    For those who are glad that Nico is gone, should read how upset Mercedes management was with Lewis's poor moral action... yes, firing him was actively discussed on put on the table until Nico called it a day. Just food for thought.

    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    They were upset that Lewis almost blew their plan of giving Rosberg the Championship.

    But afterwards their mind cleared and realized it would have been a wrong move to fire Lewis. 

    In the end that was a racing action. Just like moving around to defend a place. 

    If Lewis really was going THAT slow, it would have been easy for Nico to pass isn't it? Rosberg has nothing to lose, he could have do a Prost and crash out Lewis and still win the world championship. Lewis on the other can't afford a DNF or anything else other than a win.

    One could also think of it as Lewis preserving the engine so it doesn't blow up like it did in Malaysia.

    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    LOL, well probably he could speed up in the right moment now couldn't he... the statistics clearly show this so this isn't some weird conspiracy. That is a bit of a stretch on your part

    Which means Lewis really isn't that slow isn't it?

    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    Apparently Alonso had already told Honda, 4-5 days ago that he would honor his contract which has one more year out of loyalty and would not leave for Mercedes next year, but the interesting part is that apparently it's loyalty and appreciation for Honda, not McLaren, rumors say that if it were only McLaren alone he would not feel the same and have doubts, but Honda is the one really sustaining the team and he has a different relationship with them since 2013 when Honda approached him to lead their return to F1.

    So Alonso is out and next year unless something really changes will be even more boring than this one, with Ham having a test driver as a teammate so even less competition, basically a one car championship...

    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    Hamilton will have an interesting time next year with the starts....Raikkonen, Vettel, Verstappen, or Ricciardo next to him on the front row will liven things up!


    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    Should be a German for sure, why not a rookie?

    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    I think Wehrlein or Bottas will get a 1 year contract if they are "smart" - after that lot's of People's contracts are open again....


    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    we need 2 top drivers, otherway to boring to watch..and I think the new americans will think about this.

    Immagine a F1 with only 1 partecipant, Lewis Hamilton.

    and then a F2 with all the others and a rookie driving a F1. The F1 sucks today, if this is the future it will suck even more!!!! get Hamilton a top driver....comon Mercedes....

    Here it is. Mercedes admit they were wrong in asking Lewis to speed up.

    Take off your goggles and you can see clearly. Which I had been saying all along. There is nothing wrong with Lewis doing what he did, it's racing.

    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    @Whoopsy

    +1, LH was in the lead and controlling the pace! Everybody saw that he was easily capable to drive at least 1-1,5s faster than he did at the end when controllling the pace and what was also 1:1 the pace of SV when he was catching up to NR & MV.

    This is why he never felt that the victory @Abu Dhabi was at risk...

    If I was Mercedes F1 I'd hire Jenson Button for 1+1 contract as he's been the ONLY teammate who ever beat LH in a full race season (2011) whithout "special conditions" like NR did this year

    I see also Vettel, Ricciardo and Verstappen. I don't see the Mercedes dominance for next year. Way too many regulation changes on those cars, so we will hopefully see a bigger mix. 

    Also - we probably will see some interesting incidents between Max and the other drivers. If is stays driving so ruthless  it might be getting interesting! :)


    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    Driver will Play a bigger role for sure - so I also think F1 will benefit from that. I predict more "mistakes" again specially at the end of the race should they really corner constantly with lots more G's than before - it will be much more physical


    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    I agree Björn - the F1 will benefit from it!


    Re: Rosberg finished his career

    Hope so... it was upon time that the F1 became fast cars again...

    Every year its always the same, the new rules, greater driver involvement, etc...everybody raises their expectation and and every year is the same, if not less driver involvement than before...

    Carlos from Spain:

    Partially disagree Carlos - the last years we didn't that many changes. The new season will be a major update which has the potential to shuffle the dominance of Mercedes around. And actually - in the last 20 years it always needed that tremendous changes to finish up with a team dominance. AND - the new team in dominance was never the previous one.
