Re: Toto: Rosberg/Hamilton issues might force line-up change

I think it's clearly warning shots fired at both.

Play the right PR game or prepare to lose your seat in the best car on the grid.

Re: Has the format of the 2016 F1 weekend been chosen?

I don't know what the answer is. Im not saying get rid of practice at all. Just 3 sessions is over the top for them to fine tune their cars.

You do know Rosberg won the pole trophy last ye...

Anyone who thinks the last races of this season highlights what next season will be like should be jumping on Betfair and laying Hamilton for the title at short priced odds.

How close is pretty close? Lewis was 50+ ahead of Rosberg and tied the championship up with 3 races to go. Perez was 20 points ahead of Hulk that's generally at least 3 races in a Force India. I wouldn't say either of those were pretty close when taking in to context. I do think F1 drivers are overp...

Could pose the same question for many others how many championships do Vettel and Hamilton have to win before they get some credit? Rosberg has got credit for his wins just not enough to satisfy you. Rosberg has done well to win 3 races on the bounce now let's see him do it with the title on the line.
