And I suppose the first time a WDC's son equals his father's number of titles as well, although both of those fall solidly into the realm of trivia.


I wonder how long it will be before a third-generation driver wins a title? Or even races in F1, for that matter. It doesn't look like it will be Damon's son at this point, so at a minimum we'll have to wait probably twenty years or more to find out.

Fernando should be working on his 5th title this year. For years I used to loathe Ferrari and the way they went racing. Now I just feel bad for them.

I'm a huge fan of Daniel's, and I absolutely love that he is showing Vettel his rear wing all year, but it's a bit premature to say he deserves the championship. Rosberg has done a much better job than I thought he was capable of - however the championship lead is 11 points and the reliability score card is 1.5 - 4.

I have been thoroughly enjoying this season and hope it goes to the last race - but I desperately don't want it decided by a reliability imbalance twixt teamates. It would be great if Merc collectively stumbles enough for RB to catch up to within striking distance, but please don't let one Merc driver stroll away because the other's car keeps failing.

Well if one driver better understands the car and can keep it going it´s part of being a good race driver too :).


Mercedes have the resources to keep two cars going so I don´t think it´s a Ferrari case where they always sacrifice and dedicated one as second driver.

It's not like Nico is kicking the tires and changing the oil on a regular basis. biggrin.gif

Nico "Tell me what to do"



Hamilton "Whos behind me, whats he on?"



There are worlds of difference between the two with regard to driver maturity and racing mind.



 I hope the silver star gets it's head out over the break and returns with equal footing for their drivers.


I hope the same for Ferrari, but theres no way that's going to happen. Ferraris biggest problem is and always has been hubris. They act like they just won the world championship no matter how pathetic a machine they build. That's a culture which is hard to change.
