Not tonight, but have been most other nights. We're burnt to a crisp, been out for a meal and a couple but that's it. Still got a couple more nights here, so we'll get back on it no doubt.

Watching the German GP on catch up, Rosberg's race craft is really not great when it comes to defending or trying to make an overtake; so clumsy it's unreal

Yeah he's rubbish. He's done that so many times, just go straight until the other lad can't turn and then turn and claim you locked up.

Getting there now Hamilton, still not enough of a gap to say he's truly leading though, with him having to start from the back of the grid in one of the upcoming races due to engine penalties he's racked up closing the gap on Rosberg.

Will be an interesting end to the season.

It's done. Hamilton has "it". Rosberg doesn't. When the pressure's on only one winner. He has him all ends up. Nico might win a title through misfortune for Hamilton some day but he won't win one on merit. He's just not good enough. Shame the only others that are good enough don't have the car.

Oh dear Rosberg taken out in the first corner. Think Vettel might well be at fault there

DANIEL RICCIARDO WINS MALAYSIAN GP
Is a Red Bull one-two as Ricciardo takes the chequered flag ahead of Verstappen. Rosberg finishes third to extend his lead over Hamilton, who suffered engine failure on Lap 41

I understand his frustration but he needs to realise that he's won the last two worlds titles and ultimately he is driving for German team who has German driver in the team who is also capable of winning titles. So it's not beyond the realm of possibility that they have favoured him this year.

I'm a big Lewis fan but Nico does deserve to win a championship.

All Lewis has to do is go bang bang bang bang bang and win the last 5 races.

It's do'able, but very much dependant on any engine penalties he may again have to incur.

Not sure it's the case, but if they had favoured one over the other on the basis of nationality then it would be utterly wrong.

If only for people betting on sport, let alone the issues of fairness to each driver.

Changing the Mechanics around and the start of the season for no apparent reason started the conspiracy theories, still not sure why they did it.

Can't see that being the case, there are too many variables. What is he saying? They're giving him duff engines that could blow an endanger his and other drivers' lives? Nah, he's been unlucky this season, they could have favoured Rosberg from the outset but it hasn't happened.

He's not just relating to his own team but every engine on the grid supplied by them, his are the only one's failing in his view. I don't see it myself either and Rosberg had more than his fair share of failures in other years. Shit happens.

These engines have to be used, so i guess he's saying that they gave him the ones that after testing look most likely to fail for whatever reason, or don't produce the best stats when tested before allocation, i'm sure Merc don't want any of their engines failing tbf, but maybe some of the engines they supply to the top drivers are slightly better than others, and they know this, they have so much info on these engines these days, it's not a duff engine they know is going to fail, it just might not be the best one of the bunch supplied.

Maybe ?

How? In any other car, Rosberg is mid grid. Even in the best car, it's taken unbelievable bad luck to Lewis for Rosberg to lead the championship.

Maybe that's being a bit generous to Nico but him winning it this year will only be good for Lewis and will drive him and maybe give him more hunger to win back his title. By no means is this title over and I do think Lewis will still win it.

Would love to see Red Bull & Ferrari get their act together in the next year to take on Mercedes as we would be in for a treat in every race.
They have some talented drivers within their ranks to match Hamilton/Rosberg so be a shame to waste them on their current dud engines.

Can't help but think it'll be one team's interpretation of the new rules that will end up being dominant, and it'll just be the same again except with someone else leading the way.

Max is the next superstar - I think he's great. What a drive from him, the pass on Rosberg, the ridiculous lines he was taking, the charge from 16th to 3rd and that save as well. Nuts. What a talent.

Will Nico wipe out Hamilton in the first few laps? Doubt it! He's far too fucking dull. I was just watching the stats round up there, Hamilton wins the head to head on qualifying despite not taking part in all of them, he has as many wins and has lead for over 580 laps. That Nico is going to win the title is a bit of an embarrassment really - engine failures have decided it.

Yup, I didn't really agree with Toto and Nikki saying if Lewis backs them up they'll pit Nico for the undercut.

Literally expecting a procession today, sort of hoping Nico takes the lead and Lewis has to hunt him down for some entertainment

I don't either its fucking ludicrous. If they were in different teams that would be exactly what he would do and would be advised to do. The constructors is tied up, let them get on with it. Cunts.

He's a Button level world champion. Decent driver but never one of the best and never will be seen that way either.

Cracking race craft from Lewis to try and bring Ferrari and the Red Bulls into play.

Next season I hope we see more than one constructor being able to win a race

I'd say he's way behind Button to be honest. You'd never see Rosberg putting a race together like that win in Montreal for McLaren a few years back. I'd pout him ahead of Damon Hill and behind Jacques Villeneuve.

There are better drivers currently on the grid without a title for sure.
