“It is remarkable, although a points tally doesn’t always tell the full story. During their time at BMW, Nick Heidfeld outscored Robert Kubica, but I don’t think there are many that will argue Heidfeld was the better driver.”
@AdrianMorse – That’s a great point. It’s similar to Mercedes this year, Schumacher has been the better driver but Rosberg has more points. In the Hamilton-Button contest it’s a similar situation. How many failures has Button had compared to Hamilton this year? That’s why he’s as close to Lewis this year. Lewis has made arguably 1 mistake this season, he could of probably let Maldonado past in Valencia. other than that, he’s been superb and well ahead of Button. The only times Button has out driven Hamilton this season were Australia and Spa.
I think Hamilton will beat Rosberg, I think he’s the ideal number 2 driver, he’ll always be there racking up points but I dont seem him ever regularly competing for Wins if he’s up against Hamilton now that Lewis has got his head sorted. I also think Mercedes will be more comforting to Lewis and he will perform even better if they get a decent car.
I think Button will have Perez covered for the first season because Perez is still a bit inconsistent and JB will have the car development for next season more towards his liking.
