    Myself and Jan have just completed China driving for Mercedes in our co-op season.

    I'm driving as Rosberg :D

    I've always liked the Mercedes car since back in 2010. I had to use it in a league for a while and after initially hating the nose in cockpit view, I learned to live with it and became quite fond of the silver arrow to this day.

    Would have been nice to have a Mercedes contract but I am sticking with Williams for Season 2 career mode. Mercedes have dropped into the same Tier 3 as me so it's going to be top dog to see who gets promoted and who goes down.

    Not a bad team, but I'm really more a Sauber fan (and McLaren above all, of course)
    Anyhow, they seem to have stopped it from eating tires so badly ;), at least this race worked out well anyway :)

    It certainly was an entertaining race ...... I couldn't help a wry smile when Kimi started getting mugged by everyone when his tyres went off, also when Webber nicked Vettel's position near the end .... It's really nice to see so many cars in the mix, even when I am biased towards McLaren. Nicco deserved the race, so good luck to him ... :)

    Yep was nice to see Nico do well and win the race, a shame it wasn't a 1,2 for Mercedes but if this is signs of things to come maybe we will see it happen soon.

    As for the Mercedes car in F1 2011, well its a car i used 99% of the time in online races and RD races up till i was given the HRT in the league, then it was all about learning to drive with the HRT. A big difference really because the Mercedes is loose at the rear which is how i like it.

    Ross Brawn said it all really. "We've found the sweet spot regarding tyre temperature, now it's time to try and widen that spot"

    Of course that could be a challenge when they come back to European temperatures. Having said that, the summer is coming .....

    When I finish my season 2, currently on 4th race, though i already have the game since release day. Im going to try and get an offer from Mercedes, not because of this race but because of the car, I think its a great car though not for competitive driving ( in F12011 ) and will be driving for 3rd to 5th position.
