@al seaman yes the same Whiting who manipulated Lewis into not giving Kimi the place back at Spa 2008 when he twice told McLaren they were ok over the radio before then personally reporting Lewis to the stewards. The same guy who also fabricated a statement from Tony Scott Andrews during the appeal and got caught doing it. The guy is a snake and was Mosleys puppet. He's still a puppet for the FIA
@ 318 CoolKev - I don't blame Button if he is retiring. Mclaren are extremely disappointing this year especially given the Honda lemon they're stuck with. I'd imagine their morale is rock bottom ATM. Alonso has also had many disappointments this year. Don't forget he even missed Melbourne due to injuries from his misadventure during testing back home.But there's no conspiracy at Mclaren
@321"Crazed Whiting" lol - you seriously believe Charlie Whiting, one of the most respected figures in the sport deliberately put lives at risk just to help a rival of LH?Unfortunately I'm not a trained psychologist Kev but I have a mate who is. I'll pass your details on, he may be able to help with those delusions.
Kev, I didn't forget Germany or Monaco or Canada or Spa or even Hungary though the Hungarian incident is so bizarre you may not believe it. I like to call it operation killswitch, a favour for future favours. It certainly saved Rosbergs bacon when he was having issues with his brakes behind the safety car. See if you can figure it out
@MichaelPlease don't forget Germany 2014, when a crazed Whiting denied any safety car to cover the poor Stewards at trackside risking their necks to clear a stranded car stuck in the MIDDLE of a race track, as racers whizzed by at full pelt! Of course the unspoken aim being that Nico must beat that "pesky" talented Lew at ALL costs!! lol @als I thought u were a "trained" Psychologist? ;)
@u14334741 it's interesting you say that because all this race actually did was remind us how easy Vettels race wins over his crappy teammates have been. Webber? Crap! Raikkonen? A complete hasbin who is now crap! Out of the top 3 drivers Hamilton is the most battle hardened with competitive matchups against Alonso, Button and Rosberg. Seb and Fernando require preferential treatment to perform
@307 DS002I agree, certainly Suzuka, Austin & Brazil will suit, possibly Abu Dhabi to. Don't know much about Russia & Mexico so cant really say.Ferrari may have a bit more P.U. development space as they are behind Merc but I think Merc will have the edge for the rest of the 2015.@306 - Its late, I cant be bothered with 'they' did it to LH & I'm talking to grown ups Kev. Sleep Tight.
@DS002 Ahahaha! It's funny now I guess, but im sure not so for Mansel and/or Williams at the time! But let's face it - no team incompetence can surpass that absolute embarrassing of travesties we witnessed at JB's "wheelgate" pitstop change! No wonder he's retiring. Interesting to note that no such slacking usually occurs on car #14?? Hmmmm.
All this race did was make us wish Vettel was in a Mercedes instead of Rosberg. Then we might have a championship battle. Instead Hamilton is having a cakewalk against a vastly inferior team-mate.
@coolkev. I don't see Monaco this year as a rigged result for Rosberg. From the radio messages its pretty clear to me that it was a communication breakdown. Last year however is a completely different story. The stewards clearly favoured Rosberg and backed him to win the title but all that changed after Nico crashed into Lewis at Spa and Merc put him in his place. That crash cost Nico the title
313 CoolKev - Oh it's "typical" for all teams. I recall years ago, I think it involved Mansel whilst at Williams, where they got ready for a pit stop but everyone forgot to tell Mansel to come in as he was low on fuelSo Mansel flew past the pit entrance, right down the main straight to the team's amazement, and then promptly ran out of fuel near the end of the lap thus surrendering the lead...
There could be a challenge to Hamilton but it would depend upon all the remaining races being held in very hot conditions with Pirelli bringing the supersoft tyres to them all.And please, please would someone point out to all these journalists that Senna took less than 161 races to get his 41 wins; he took part in 161 races but got his 41st victory some 3 races earlier.
@DS002 - Okay. I still think there may have been something deeper going on at Nico's home race, but your point is fair enough by me. Of course "typical" being the keyword here in relation to Mercedes. ;)
311 CoolKev - I put the Monaco result down to a typical screw-up on behalf of the team along with failed communications between the pit crew, Wolffie, & the driver.It's not the first time such a thing has happened and it won't be the last.
@309 Absolutely! But where do you stand?
