  • Would Rosberg be Schumi's toughest team mate?

    This is not about how Schumi enjoyed his dominant driver status when he was in Benetton and Ferrari. In terms of skills how would Nico Rosberg compare with his other team mates like Barrichello, Irvine, Massa?

    The setting's perfect, nothing much to lose, he can have fun like he always keeps saying, invaluable test data for Ferrari. A few stints and then Massa comes back. And for once we will know for sure the outcome of Schumi vs Hamilton!

  • Why isn't Brawn cars investigated for safety?

    In the last 16 years I don't remember anything other than wheels and bodywork appendages being detached from cars, mostly because of contacts. Now a 800 gram spring nut for no reason, how safe is the Brawn car? Should they be allowed on track tomorrow before a meticulous scrutiny?

  • Hamilton has apologized for his mistake. Why is it that the fans are still adamant on the conspiracy theory?

    It looked more like face saving measure with Dave Ryan being given all the blame. (The apology statements looked rather strange though)
