They need a 2006 style race,

Mercedes customers looking good. Not so much for Mercedes themselves though...

But if it rains, it should be with some showers which could bring an interesting chaos. Not rain from the beginning because I dont want to watch 20 laps of SC.

Dry race:

1. Rosberg
2. Hamilton
I can't see this happening - Nico's never beaten Hamilton on equal terms here.
Another race thread another made up and/or selective Hamilton myth =P~ . Last season he was beating Hamilton on equal term thoroughly (strong chance for a win) until tyre blunder/SC/crashtor Ricciardo happened . Did you remove it from memory or do you think terms were 'equal' during/after those events (last one is enough) or weren't before? Don't answer, it's not really a question.

Hungary is boring - 12 examples to the contrary starting with last race, mostly low driving quality (Toro Bull) but eventful.
If Damon Hill, a former WDC, was able to almost win here in an Arrows, shouldn't Alonso and Button be able to make something happen?

They had one in Silverstone. If McL chassis was so great wouldn't that be (aero/rain) the perfect opportunity to shine?

I am so pleased you are now voicing your strong and opposing opinion on what a question is =P~ you may also (true to form) be swimming against the tide on this one too. :lol:

I expect Nico to start with better tires then Lewis, so he might be in a nice situation to win.
unless of course, Lewis suffers first corner understeer again....

I think any type of first corner incident would be more attributed to Nico brain, oops I mean brake fade.....

How would Nico start with better tires than Lewis?

Pure speculation: pole for Hamilton, Rosberg second, Verstappen third and Vettel fourth. Good start by Vettel but taking our Verstappen and a Mercedes at the first corner.

Just a quick question i´m too lazy to figure out myself.

Schumi has the most poles at 7 around here according to F1 twitter, with Hamilton being equally impressive in terms of wins i was just curious how many poles he had.

So basically Schumi was pretty lethal around here regardless of fuel load. thanks.

Lewis has 4 (2007, 2012, 2013, and 2015).

True.
well, very often Nico is sandbagging during Q2. When you have such a large advantage over 11th quickest car, what's the point of pushing and destroying tires!?
you both can go and compare Q2 and Q3 times from Nico and Lewis.
