Is it just me or does anyone else feel Rosberg is absolutely desperate to be heard ever since he hung up his helmet?
It's just you.
No it's not.

It's him creating content for his own youtube channel. If it bothers you, then don't watch it.

I think the only thing that spoiled it for me was Tony Ross's instruction to Bottas after the race to run in formation "to show our Italian colleagues"... I don't mind running in formation to celebrate, but knowing that the radio messages were going to be aired and saying that for me was completely unnecessary and was akin to rubbing salt in Ferrari's wounds... which is not how Mercs operate imo... yeah it may have been a bit of light banter but Tony Ross just seemed wrong...
It's corporate warfare, no better way to win then getting under your opponents skin, and unnerving them.
That's the beauty of fight between teams. It's psychological games. Just like Lewis at Spa where he talked about 'tricks'. It could be tricks to make Ferrari think they have the upper hand on straight line speed.

Well.
For me,Vettel's team radio in Silverstone was a simply answer to Mercedes Monza 2017 parade.
That's was not very elegant...at all.
But many seems to forget what Mercedes did in past.

'The past' is a lot further than 2017 wouldn't want you to forget that.

And then race later when they lose they're bitching around like they are in midfield... or raise some conspiracy theories in media and stirring stuff
Translate what Sebastian said in the radio message after the British gp and you will see why they did that in Italy.

O please, I'd bet my next pay check that Monza 2017 had nothing to do with what Vettel Said.

I seriously don't understand how some fans get so butt hurt about this. They act like 5 year olds complaining Mercedes walked up and took their lollipop!

Well actually at Silverstone we all cheered for Vettel when he won even though 90% of the people in the grandstand including myself were supporting Merc. Then again at Spa I ended up in a sea of Max fans and still everyone cheered when Vettel won.

It seems to me that it's just the tifosi than tend to act like apes.
How much TQ does it make though?

To be fair, Monza is Ferrari. It’s not like any of the other venues can be attributed to a singular team, unlike Monza/Ferrari. And I’d also say that most of the Tifosis are fans of Ferrari, not the drivers.

Just saying. I am not justifying that the booing is right, just putting some context to it.
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II
