    Well I meant performance wise, obviously anything can happen mechanical wise.

    Best thing for Nico right now would be Vettel taking out Verstappen.

    Has Rosberg considered trying to overtake and win it in style? No?

    Hammilton is one hell of a bad loser...
    If something goes wrong now for Rosberg, this will get ugly...

    I reckon Vettel thinks he can win this.

    Hamilton should just take it on the chin that this year is all for Rosberg (the father-son stat is worth it alone) I'm sure Hami can wait for next season for the 4 time brit wdc stat.

    I've lost all respect there was left to Hammilton.

    Not Hamilton s problem. If Ros thinks he's too slow he can overtake HAM.

    I don't really see the issue with Hamilton backing Rosberg up, if Rosberg wants he still has the ability to Pass, it's just that it's made difficult.

    We've all done this to that one AI in Gran Turismo.

    And Paddy Lowe has just instructed Hamilton to drive faster if he wants to win the race - and Hamilton responded "I don't know if you noticed but I'm in the lead"...

    I bet Toto and Niki are already imploding in the garage.

    Rosberg might be forced to make a move on Hamilton if he keeps pushing them back.

    It's a race for WDC, not sure why you or anyone else are getting touchy, as long as the guy didn't take out his team mate it's fair play. This is racing, and if Nico was worried he should try fighting for that spot instead.

    Paddy tells Lewis on the radio to pick up the pace, "We need you to pick up the pace to win this race, that is an instruction"

    HAM doing nothing wrong at all, he isn't even defending at all, let alone defending unfairly.

    Yeah Famine just posted that. The more recent radio message was "I'm losing a world championship either way, win or lose."

    That is ridiculous, Don't you understand the concept of TACTICS. If Rosberg doesn't like it he can PASS him. If he doesn't that's his problem.

    Maybe this is all just orchestrated by Merc to give the fans edge of the seat stuff in the final laps.
