Nico R moaning (again)

This time about Max saying he was the most difficult competitor who kept getting in his way and nearly cost him the championship in '16.
Nice comfy and well off living there in MC he may yet come out with a book telling how everyone got in his way

I'm waiting for the day either Nico or Lewis write a book or do an interview about their dynamic when they were teammates. I'm sure there's a lot from both sides that was never disclosed to the public.

I dont think we'll ever have to wait for Max to write one though, he usually speaks his mind

Definitely my friend, Nico and Lewis each doing a book it will be six of one and half dozen of the other...and a red hot phone line between their homes

I think that's mainly because he's running a YouTube channel now. From what I remember, he had a different personality before he retired from the sport.

If I remember correctly, I read somewhere that he is supposedly not welcome in the Williams motor home/garage when at races. Something about mouthing off too much. Not sure how much truth there is to that, but given his "colorful" statement sometimes, I wouldn't be surprised if it was.

It must also be remembered that all of Schumi's points were erased for that season by FIA though he kept his victories tally. That made JV's teammate HH-F second in championship.Article 123 was not invoked on Ferrari (for not controlling it's driver) as it was decided that it was not a premeditated action but a reactive one, make of that what you will.

so you re seeing Ferrari as a victim or what?

Schumi's points were erased because of his deliberate move crash to Villenueve.. even FIA would not have erased his points Schumi d still lose the championship by 3 points anyway.. and lets not forget that Villeneuve's 2 points in Suzuka was erased as well prior to Jerez cause he didnt slow down enough on "Free Practice" under yellow flags.. which was weird but he still snatched the tittle in the end.. Ferrari had tons favouritism from FIA in last 25 years.. with that decision you re talking about only cost Ferrari to lose the 2nd place in constructors.. since Ferrari lost the tittle before Jerez already.. so they didnt lose a tittle because of that decision..

Certainly not. In fact I see the reds being let off lightly because how would Fia know if the act was deliberate to not so deliberate, how would they know if he was planning it from far aback or in that split second and Schumi carried no penalty going into '98. Just saying he lost all his points and wasn't referring to constructors.
