  1. I enjoyed seeing how Schumi seemed to really like the weekend, despite not having been able to either win pole or finish impressively.
    He knows the car is now there to get results and it really is all in his hands to bring them home for them as well. Will Rosberg build on this weekend to grow into a real championship contender? Lets wait and see! So far he is a really nice guy looking great on the podium.

    1. @bascb I think that could be because he knows it hasn’t been his fault at any of the last 3 races. It’s not him really making the mistakes, so although he has every reason to be angry/frustrated. I guess he is a role model for the ‘don’t worry about things that are out of your control’ mentality. He has just had a rather extreme run of bad luck. It will change in the other direction soon enough. I have every faith in him :)

      1. I am not sure he will manage to win @nick-uk, but I agree that Schumacher, especially in his “second F1 career” is good at looking at it in a more relaxed way. And knowing you have the car to get to pole and race wins is surely a great motivator for him.

        1. @bascb I think you’re spot on. He looked really happy at the end of the race, as did most of the Mercedes staff! I think he has the mentality of ‘not if, but when’.

          1. He’s probably happier because there’s no longer a ton of pressure on him to become champion.

  2. WELL DONE! WELL DESERVED! Enough said :)

  3. I already have Rosberg as my wallpaper, but that top left image is going to take its place.

    1. @andrewtanner I have the picture of the two Mercedes entering the final corner as my facebook cover image. It fits perfectly :)

  4. Let me do the honors – no McLaren pics!
