I don't expect this to last very long until it gets locked to be quite frank.
Last year quite simply Nico overshadowed Michael for a variety of different reasons.
Considering even a rusty Michael is still a very quick driver, it shows that if his issues with the car are overcome, that Mercedes GP will have two very quick drivers and possibly the best duo in the field.
If the issues with the car get taken care of, and he still gets beaten handily by Nico, then there will be little in the way of excuses that can be made.
For now it's far too early to be bothering with a thread that will get locked before the season gets underway.
