Whats with all the hate for Nico Rosberg?
I just don’t get it, the kid is underrated beyond belief (even Keith notices this) and no matter how much he pounded Schumi last season people still won’t even bother to take a glance at him.
Are people somewhat afraid of Nico actually posing a threat now since he schooled one of the most legendary drivers of our time and that he still gets spat on from f1 fans who quite frankly must of blanked the whole season with him.
Kubica did well last season and is now tipped to be future WDC material why not Nico?
Or is that the mindset against Nico just because he is a “pritty rich boy” somehow gives him the “no hope” title against the likes of working class drivers, Lewis or Alonso etc…
Nico has never had a title contending car in his whole career yet when he gets closer to getting it his results greatly improve, obviously. Yes I admit his starts are horrible, but his race results are pritty much always positive to his qualifying posistion. He sticks out of trouble when most needed but is solid all race to get the results.
People on here always talk about Jenson’s ability to preserve the tyres with his smooth driving style yet Nico is the same and he can qualify better than him.
What results from the past proove that Nico will never surpass the likes of Lewis or Vettel in this season or next? confidence is a big thing to have in this sport ask Jenson and Webber about that, Nico has a lot now after beating Schumacher.
Don’t be fooled by this name I’m quite serious, if he gets a title contending car he will challenge. Nico might not be the best overtaker or the best qualifier or let alone the “pure fastest” but by Bernie’s wig he is more consistent in all those area’s then half of the top runners we see in the top 3 teams.
I bring this up because I was doing an experiment of sorts to see the response of people’s reaction to a Nico Rosberg fan (Nico is my 2nd favorite driver) amongst the likes of the big 4 fanboy groups lewis, alonso, vettel, schumacher.
It was a very toxic atmosphere, mostly from the die hard schumi fans which wouldn’t suprise me after being all defensive after last season’s whooping. But here they are again the media and fans hyping up a man who got outclassed badly by somebody younger. If any post involves schumi, schumi fanboys slurring Nico’s name are not far behind to post it after being quiet for months.
They would of prefered it was someone like Alonso, Lewis or Vettel that done it….nope it was some dark horse called Nico who surprised a lot of people that year, so why all the excuses and hate for the guy? he beat a 7xWDC in the same car.
It seems every new f1 fan is doomed to join the collective of being a top runner fan and never dip their feet for something new, believing their guy that they support has a shot at the world title. This is one of the real considerations I’m having leaving these kind of blogs for good since nobody can make a stand with a different driver without getting insulted or jeered at from all sides, so what if I do give them verbal back I have a right to believe in something different to the rest of the gerneral f1 population.
I wouldn’t rate Nico above the obvious top 3 but I believe he is better than Massa, Jenson and Webber and getting closer to Kubica. If Nico was given the Mclaren of Jenson or the Ferrari of Massa the constructors title might of gone the other way and the gap between the drivers would of been far tighter, if given the Red Bull I’m certain he would of beaten vettel with all his mistakes.
P.S I can’t be bothered to spell check it or make sure the grammer is ok, it’s late so save the quotes for somebody who cares.
