Hamilton is one of the best drivers on the grid today, while Nico is not.
All I can say is he will not get his nose alongside for times enough to win the championship this way, and neither will Hamilton have continued wrong place, wrong time moments.

While I too rate Hamilton better than Nico, Hamilton too has quite a large number of similar incidents on his resume. I think 2011 was full of such incidents. Infact that is what makes me quite sure that had the places been reversed, there's a good chance Hami would have done the same.

All I can say is that Nico is very lucky. Let's see if it lasts the entire season.
I think this policy was applied from 3-4 races ago, not Spa. I remember reading about it in June/July.
So I guess, stewards didn't think blame lay only on Rosberg.

I believe that Magnussen was penalised post race for his pushing wide antics, not that I found anything wrong with it. Loved the race despite being a MASSIVE Hamster fan. In general, the race was good. Fingers crossed for the season to end in the way I want it to.

I thought the incident was a racing incident. Rosberg had half a car alongside Hamilton and was probably trying to go outside him. Lewis knew he was there and my initial thoughts were that he didn't give Nico enough space. But everyone thought otherwise. Why was this incident not investigated? Does the team need to appeal for an investigation?

Nico didn't do it on purpose. The point he was probably trying to make is that Hamilton should not get into the habit of cutting him off (Bahrain 14) or push him off the track (Hungary 14).

And why is it legal to push drivers off the track the way Mag pushed off Jenson yesterday (and Hami to Ros in Hungary)? Both of them were pretty much alongside the defending drivers when they were pushed off.

I think Merc is very soon going to decide the race victor by Sat performance. With Ric jumping on every chance Merc loses, they might be nervous about losing the WDC.

Lewis was the leading driver who was on the racing line, you cant put your nose at every gap and expect the leading driver to move over. I was surprised that the stewards didnt review this incident, Rosberg gained an advantage my cutting off his direct championship contender more than his teammate for FIA to be interested.

Every time Rosberg gets mixed with the pack, he is proving that he is just an average driver in a phenomenally fast car and as equally dirty on the track.

I would enjoy watching both the Mercs take out each other and let the smiling australian have a go at the championship. Both Lewis & Rosberg dont deserve it!

Rosberg was so full of himself and could not digest the fact that Lewis blasted past him in the start. Sulking he cut across in the part of the track that did not offer enough space and clipped poor Lewis. He could have taken Lewis in the next straight with DRS if he was that close. The fact is , Nico can be quite crazy at times, last year he got Alonso (if I remember right) off the track once. Nico does get that streak in him which will be unbecoming of him, if god forbid he becomes the champion. oh no

^^ Nico's current state of mind is quite similiar to that of lewis back in 2007-08, immature and not respecting other drivers while racing. Lewis has matured in these past 4-5 years.
Nico has to act like an adult & take responsibily for his actions. I guess this is what a powerful and dominating car does to you.

^^ And he probably knows that this is his only chance to get closer to winning championship. Hence the desperation to even punt Lewis off from the race, but I have to agree that he is doing it brilliantly.

Why is Keke being silent about this, I hope he repeats the same words that he said about Michael in Monaco'06?

This was his actual quote :

He should resign from the Grand Prix Drivers Association and never mention the word safety again. It he was a real man he would have parked the car in the middle of the road and walked away. We would have thought much better of him. It was the worst thing I have seen in Formula One. I thought he had grown up. He is a cheap cheat. He should leave F 1 to honest people

The quote is perfectly suited for Nico's antics this year at Monaco. If someone had Keke's audio of this, they should have broadcasted it on air.

The same article mentions Lewis -
"Lewis Hamilton, the 21-year-old Hertfordshire racer tipped to take his place in the McLaren team next year if Raikkonen moves to Ferrari, drove brilliantly again to win the GP2 race."

Lewis was immature when he came into F1. Nico has been there for the same amount of time or probably more and is still raw. How I wish it was Alonso instead of Lewis who was at the receiving end and we would have had Spanish temper !! Come on Alonso drive faster and go near Nico or get him near you.
