Nico is in good form, had he got really lucky today... but Hamilton got pretty dam lucky in Brazil back in '07 (or 08?) to take his first crown. Massa could so easily be a WC and Lewis has 2.
Anyway, there will likely be more drama. Lewis won't capitulate. But my early season assessment remains: he's distracted.
BTW... that Rosberg penalty... come on. Do you really want to curate a sport where nobody ever takes a chance on a move??
