IMO Rosberg is underrated. In 2010, he beat Kubica in an equal car, who according to many forum members, was the second coming of Jesus Christ. Likewise, Michael Schumacher, even in his early 40′s, is still a very capable driver. He was beaten by Rosberg three years in succession.
China 2012 — this particular race, in my eyes Mclaren were as quick as Mercedes. He beat both Hamilton and Button, fair and square. He’s only had two races where he truly had race winning machinery. China and Monaco 2012. Once he won, the other time he finished 2nd. Not a bad record, should I say?
I’d say he’s better than Button over a single lap, over a race distance Button is probably just as good. Hamilton will face genuine competition year.
Of course, throughout the entire season I still expect Lewis to come out on top.
