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

Rosberg is nearly as good as Vettel, Raikkonen and Button. It explains his inconsistency vs the slightly inferior Ferrari this year. Ferrari is not "slightly" inferior. I rate Rosberg below those World Champions and also Bottas too. Sorry man. Rosberg beat Schumi, Wurz and Nakajima . But Schuey was...

Re: Will anybody do that again?

It is weird that only Fernando Alonso came SO close to achieve this feat after Schumacher <for all those 20 years>, but he couldn't achieve this with one way or another 3 times;

with Mercedes in 2007,
with Ferrari in 2010 and 2012.

Titles with different engine brands?

The man who achieved this feat before him was Alain Prost . No champion has accomplished this...

Schumacher forever#1 wrote:...So, for me, it depends on the car for who would come out on top.
I think so.

Having Hulk&Perez at Mercedes with Ham&Ros at Force-India would have made Mercedes as the title favourites with Force-India aiming for points for each race.

A lot depends on car performance. A lot.
