Re: Career perspective: Hulkenberg, Grosjean and Perez

Hulks never been on the podium. Team mates driving the same car has him have. Sergio completed same race AHEAD OF HIS TEAMMATE when he was less experienced the year before, in 2013, against WDC Button. What does that prove? It proves that he is really good at Bahrain, even against proven World Cham...

Re: Nico has accepted 2nd already against Hamilton...

Hamilton wants to be perceived to be a team player because that'll do his legacy wonders. It's clear to me that he isn't really a team player because he's yet to make a sacrifice for the good of the team. When he stumbles, the team stumbles with him a la Malaysia 2015.
