Nico Rosberg....

Post by lightmas on Sat 24 Mar - 10:08:44

So before this season, I had the opinion that Nico was not a top driver. So far this season this has been backed up. Twice in a row Nico has had a car capable of getting well up there but he has made several mistakes under pressure. A driver is not a top driver without coping with this, which thinking back Nico dosent always do (China 2010, leading, made a mistake).

Add to that Michael is meant to be the slower driver in quali, yet its 2-0 to Michael so far. I just dont see him in the league of Seb, Alonso, Lewis or JB by a fairly large margin.

Before this season most of you said "When he gets a good car...etc"...well, this years car is pretty good.

What do you guys think on Nico being a top driver, and why?

If Vettel, Hamilton, Alonso, Schumacher, Webber, Button and Pic all retired then you can consider him a top driver

Agreed. And the same thing goes with Massa. Certainly not a top driver anymore.

I'm very happy to see Michael performing so well, after all the harsh words re his performance versus Nico.

Also happy to see Webber being competitive again.

Enjoyed Michael's lap, it's nice to see the 90's chap still kicking hard among the (much) younger talents.

I agree. Given a competitive car, MIchael is showing that he can still mix it up with the top teams. I just hope the car will have a better race pace tomorrow.

We haven't got to 2nd race yet. Obviously am more of Schumi's fan, so it's good to see he is improving over Nico, but its not like it never happened to drivers or top drivers.

He probably had durian before qualify, and it's affecting his tummy.

Nico is one the top drivers for sure. We have seen only one race this year, so I am sure he will do great things still. Just Michael knows now is worth to push having a good car and not like last year but Nico is OK and will show as Mercedes improves the car in next races.

2012 - 1 race - 2 qually and the verdict is out that Nico is not a top driver. What about the first two seasons with Merc? All of a sudden MS is top and Nico crap? Lol .

Meanwhile Lightmas - just because Massa is failing so miserably , don't pick on my guy ok? LOL !

Some people may remember I have always said Nico is not a top driver, this just reinforces my point. When you dont have many chances, and your given a chance, you can not waste them, not 2 weeks in a row.

It's just one race and 2 qualifying sessions. He has been faster than Michael in some practice sessions so its not like he is slow. He just made 2 mistakes in 2 Qualifying sessions when it mattered the most. He has been faster than Michael in Q1 and Q2 mostly. The season has just started and it is way too early to give a verdict on anyone.
The only thing we can say for sure is that both Schumi and Mercedes have upped their game a bit this year, so the gap between Nico and Schumi will not be too much.

Nico has had the better of MS for two full seasons. One race - one qually. Hello? This constitutes grounds for 2nd tier classification? Hahhahaha ...

Looked like pretty standard performance from Nico, and I've watched all of them (with Mercedes). He says after almost every qualifying session that he could have done better, that he could have been further up if... He more often than not goes backwards in the race, too.

It's just that Schumacher feels (as he said before the season) that he can trust THIS car in the corners, that it's "a real racing car", so he can make the most of it, now.

Seems to me MS had two years in a row where he was out paced, out qualified, out scored ... jumping to conclusions about Nico after a race and two Q sessions ... geez. It's not like Mercedes has had pace during the two previous years and Rosberg was squandering it behind MS , no less.

Yea but that was in the mid field, completely different to the pressure of towards the top.

1 race and 2 qualifying sessions is enough to assess a true top driver at the start of the season.

A situation that will be rectified in 2012 Laughing

Those 2 seasons might be the thing he looks back on after his career is over

*0 Wins
*0 Poles
*2 Fastest Laps!!!!! (which means he went around the circuit the fastest over 1 lap)
*A 2nd place in a chaotic fixed race
*At least beat Old Declined Schumacher for 2 years

Do people here have something against Rosberg because of his looks? Britney?

That should be the only reason....he's a pretty soft spoken and humble chap as far as I've seen so far of him? Smile

rubbish lol. massa has spent 4 seasons in the dump and yet some still claim he is a true top driver.

its not like rosberg is doing massa pace now. he has make a little mistake in his qualis, he will out qualify MS easily soon, he had one race where the car had technical problems. thats all. lets not jump to conclusion
