I'm not sure he crashed on purpose, rather that Nico could have backed off and avoided the incident but chose not to, and placed the onus on Lewis to move.

Interesting spin on things.  Never really even though of that.  Trying to save face in a strange way.  We all have our pride in certain ways.

 

 

But no effing way, mate.  Tarnish his name with a, I did it on purpose to teach him a lesson.  What lesson was taught?  I'm not moving an inch, so come at me bro?  Eff me?  I'll eff you back.  That makes a lot more sense than, ooops I screwed up a bit so I better say I did it on purpose.  Yeah, cause they don't make mistakes ever...

 

Personally, I feel like Nico is just trying to win at all costs cause he's riding the high of being in his position right now.  He feels holier than thou.

 

Side note: not a Nico fan.

You're probably right, and I admit I don't see what point was being served by any supposed lesson. If Lewis had been racing dirty or trying to crowd him off track I could see it, but unless he's still really bent about Bahrain he's got nothing to complain about. I think either he did it by accident, or he did it on purpose to seal his championship; probably the former, as I don't really think he has it in him. But then I didn't think so at Monaco either, and and you know what they say...

He admitted to doing it on purpose, Hamilton went public with it and the team principles confirmed it. There is no guesswork here at all folks. The little princess had a hissy and took his teammate out of the race. On lap 2 for godsake.

 

 What you don't seem to be getting is that when you go into the slums the whole grid starts to turn against you. You become the wildcard that no one wants around. It takes a boatload of pennance to recover from that and in the meantime you might just find that  it becomes a whole lot harder to work your way through the pack after a pit stop.

 

Sons of 80's champions seem to think they are invincible for some reason. Going to be a very interesting second half to the season.

They confirmed what Lewis said was broadly accurate but it was misinterpreted

 

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/formula1/28925460

 

"Wolff insisted the meaning of Rosberg's comments during a private team meeting after the race had been misinterpreted.

Hamilton claimed that Rosberg said he had caused the incident "on purpose", adding: "He said he could have avoided it. He basically said: 'I did it to prove a point'."

Wolff explained: "They agreed to disagree in a very heated discussion amongst ourselves, but it wasn't deliberately crashing. That is nonsense."

"It was deliberately taking into account that if Lewis moves then it could end up in a crash."

"The FIA will now have to decide whether to investigate what was actually said in the meeting and whether Rosberg's decision not to take avoiding action effectively caused a collision, which is an offence under the F1 sporting regulations."


I read that as now Merc, in their best interest for Constructor's points is more or less trying sweep it under the rug. Bogus. Nico did what he did.

So McLaren have just posted this on their facebook page, Which F1 Driver Are You?

 

I got JB

Which McLaren Driver are you?

Wow, you’re a smooth one – and you make everything in life just seem effortless. Thing is, how much longer do you want to stay behind the wheel – a second career as a triathlete surely beckons?

post #1223 of 1400

No surprise they pegged me as Prost:)

post #1224 of 1400

Seems like I only got Button because I chose MP4-26 as my car. If I change that to any other choices, I'd get Prost (except for M23, in which case I'd get Fittipaldi).

post #1225 of 1400

Odd that. I wonder how it's weighted.

post #1226 of 1400

I got Bruce McLaren.

post #1227 of 1400

Pointless poll you can easilly see which question is for which driver. Except for the model names I never remember those :)

The point is that McLaren is depicting Button as driver on his way out. (they are the ones who wrote that yes?)

It'd be a shame if Jenson's career ends this way, after giving five years to a massively under performing team.

Yeah the poll result for Button seem to suggest that they are going to dump JB. They actually have an unbelievably quick car in 2012, but its unreliability added by the unreliability of the pit crew threw Hamilton's chance for the title.

I got my personal favorite, le Professeur. I'm not going to take it enough times to figure out how it's weighted, but I think the car is important. I tried to avoid guessing the answer outcomes :rolleyes:
