    Nico took the fight to Lewis for 3 years and won 1 year. He retired because he did not have the stamina to defeat Lewis again. Nick seems to be a great guy and was smart to retire as his win over Lewis and the pursuit of domination over Lewis will always be discussed theoretically pertaining to Nico continuing in the sport. The culture of F1 rejected Lewis and was forced to celebrate his greatness. It will always relish his defeat and will probably always say he is the greatest by accomplishments but question if he is the best ever. Embedded and on default.

    Why are you talking about Valterri? He is clearly NOT up for the task at hand! In this season ( 2021) he will NOT finish in the top 3 at the end. He lost from George Russel last ( they say) the same car! Valterri Bottas will NOT drive for Mercedes next year, that's for sure!

    To my opinion all that letting Hamilton gain advantage for 29laps and then banning it inconsistently when Max started doing it I think going wide at that turn helped Hamilton save tires and gained him few seconds over half the race and certainly robbed Verstappen of winning the race in addition to a bit strategy mess up! However it’s unfair and confusing what this stupid FIA doing!

    Rosberg went to Toto Wolf and whinged like a little bitch that Hamilton had an advantage from the mechanics on his side of the garage. Toto accommodated Rosberg and the drivers swapped mechanics. That season Lewis had nothing but bad luck with car reliability.....what a coincidence! Rosberg won the driver's championship by default for having the best performing car that year. That is all. Nothing to do with mental tactics or driving skill. Left F1 before Lewis could embarrass him the next season!

    What a bias way to start a conversation about lewis Hamilton. Nico Rosberg did not beat Lewis Hamilton fair and square, Lewis had more DNFS than Nico plus Mercedes replaced his engineers so it was not fair and square win for nico. Same goes to Button when people say He outscored Hamilton during their time in McLaren That years Hamilton again had more DNFs so you guys are bias. Just ones be fair and give Hamilton credit and admit he is the greatest the f1 has ever seen.

    I have this feeling that Max will win more races than Lewis, but Lewis will still win on points. That is the real strength of the Mercedes and its not even outright speed. The Honda engine is far more likely to break down and the season is now extremely long and demanding with fewer engines than ever. As for Bottas his only shot, is for Lewis to get beaten several times in a row, his ego won't deal with it and it could snowball into a bad season for Lewis

    These guys they are talking off their ass Nico did not get under Lewis Hamilton skin, it is just that season the big boss asked to swap Nico’s Engineers with Lewis. Guess what Lewis that year got 8 DNF hope you all remember that. And strange thing Nico didn’t even get a single engineer failure. Also all the cars that used Mercedes engine did not get any engine failure expect for Lewis. I think that championship was rigged someone was messing around with Lewis parts.
