Re: Wolff talks about Alonso, and Hamilton's contract.

Was it the only thing of merit that the Hulk did? Rosberg set fastest lap on his GP debut, that was when fastest laps actually counted for something. You actually managed not to answer my post but go off in another tangent instead, I guess you had no valid answer? Rosberg never shone against Webber...

Hulkenberg showed he learnt SOMETHING from Rubens Barrichello by putting that Williams on pole and showing his authority there by putting a gap of more than 1000 miliseconds!!!! Then he fought like a legend on that very same race too. As the matter of fact, the gap appeared to be more than 1 billio...
