@1106 - "It isn't 12 world titles won by Germans, it is 12 Germans who have won world tiltes. [sic]"Nico is the third German to have won an F1 world title. Schumacher: 1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 & 2004. Vettel: 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013. Rosberg: 2016.7 + 4 + 1 = 12 (so TA24 @ 1111 was correct)See http://www.f1-fansite.com/f1-results/f1-champions/
@1118 anyone can be an "editor" and "expert", just start your own online blog, spout statistics (freely available online) and give your own thoughts. That's all that journalists do.
Nico ought be thankful for the tough race he had to put up with with. That experience will make him tougher and better prepared for next year.
It works be good if we could edit our comments in the same manner that chief Benson does.Just resign Andrew.
Is it not a little strange that a driver LH's fans feel could be beaten by 75% of the grid. Given they had identical equipment and LH had the same opportunity as NR are they actually suggesting that LH is not in that top 75%??Have a word with yourselves - out of order - LH is one of the top 5 (maybe 6, but definitely 7) drivers on the grid, you should have more respect for the man you support.
Lewis did what he did to give himself a chance of winning the championship. What I love is that if he had a 5 second lead its called 'controlling the pace/gap' but when he doesnt have that lead its dirty tactics!!
Anybody who is good at anything appreciates achievements and titles won based on your genuine ability and merit, people who receive or celebrate achievements gained from technicalities or default are the kind of people who are lacking in skill and hollow achievements like these are the best they can hope because they cannot compete if the playing field is level, Rosberg and his fans are the latter
Re-watching the C4 recording online because of some race radio I heard - lap 32/55, 1:48:27 on recording - on board with Hamilton, his team send him information. Coulthard (commentating) took it as them saying "may be wise to slow". However I don't believe that was actually said - others listen in and decide for yourself.
The championship is over and the driver with the most points is the Champion. That's always the result. I remember Keke Rosberg winning his one title, at the time people said he was not a worthy champion because he only won one race that year. There's always somebody crying foul but it is what it is and there's nothing going to change, so just get on with it and look forward to next year.
#1018. You have a short memory. The A1 GP series was exactly what you desire, where the 'teams' represented countries with no individual drivers championship. Exactly how long did that last???
@1106...I beg to differ... unless you can name me 12 Germans then i'll stand corrected.
