Hams weaknesses (continued)

2016 champ Rosberg probably knows Lewis's weaknesses on and off the track more than anyone else and he's the only driver to have beaten him lately (in '16).
He's opened up in an attempt to help other drivers catch up to the Stevenage born driver in saying when things don't work out for him he can be on a downer for two maybe three races to 'recover' in which time others have failed to realise they can seize the opportunity when this happens.
I believe he has changed diet to vegetarian, lifestyle also so whether this is still the case remains to be seen.

Lewis's weakness vs Rosberg was a Big-End bearing in a brand new Mercedes Power Unit failing during the Malaysian GP with 16 or 17 laps left.

Rosberg is an unlikeable idiot who comes across as an entitled brat everywhere he goes. I've met him 2x BEFORE Lewis joined Mercedes. Didn't like him then, don't like him now.

There is a reason Mercedes has cut all ties to him. Similar to Williams cutting all ties to Jacques Villeneuve. When a manufacturer cuts ties with their former WDC, it is very telling.

We don't know what happened after Nico won the championship but one can guess whatever they think.He comes over as a likeable fellow and don't forget when he was growing he spent time with Lewis.There was only one way to beat him then and he used it all to his advantage,as the saying goes when the lids drop you play for yourself.
No one tells Nico what to do unlike what some others have to follow.

1- Nico Rosberg told a lot of truth but for the moment he is manic depressed
2- Jacques Villeneuve is f@cking crazy and still reckless

Rosberg has a Youtube channel.. i agree he is an idiot.. actually a pure idiot.. even among commentators he is un-wanted starting from last year.. if he d know that much, he could have not retire and d do it again.. but he knew at least 130% performance he should have put again for just to a have chance to do it again..

Perhaps you need to be a bit crazy to beat Lewis

I'm sure there is a memorial or plaque to him there close to the crash spot.
*It's about 30 minutes for me to Brands Hatch from my place.

Nope. My friend who quite liked him based on his TV personality had the reaction of, "what a freaking jerk", after we met ROS at the AMG factory.

True.

We were there last season as guests of Red Bull. Did you attend the race in 2019?
