I think you're both looking at things way to black and white TBH. The whole situation around Spa, pecking order in the team and general driving standards at Mercedes is so much more nuanced that either of you seem prepared to concede. Zoue, Rosberg was not always the victim of big bad lier Hamilton and Mercedes. I think you've been arguing against Hamilton fans too long and allowed your self to get entrenched in a position against Hamilton. I haven't seen you back Hamilton on anything for a while now? Over the course of the last 3 years Rosberg has been probably at least as dirty. And Pokerman we all expect you to defend Hamilton to the hilt but you have to accept that too often Hamilton has let emotion get the better of him which has negatively affected his team. His inability to put Monaco 2014 behind him allowed this destructive relationship to develop and it ended up doing no good to anybody.
I agree Rosberg wasn't always the victim of big bad liar Hamilton, but I do believe that Hamilton did intentionally deceive everybody about the Spa incident with his claim that Rosberg intentionally hit him, to try to gain sympathy from the public. I also found it distasteful that he would try and influence the court of public opinion against Rosberg with his statement after the Monaco qualifying. Pokerman's comments, which pretty much take Hamilton's utterances as gospel, effectively validate that.
As regards saying something positive about Hamilton, I've always said I find him one of the best drivers on the grid. But I also think he's one of the most political and disruptive influences on the grid. It's his character I have an issue with. I tend to post as a counterpoint to all those who echo his "I'm a victim" mentality and make out that Rosberg is a fully paid up Sith Lord, which I think is rubbish. By way of example, when Rosberg tries to force Lewis off the road - and I fully agree he's just as guilty as Lewis in doing that - he's vilified. Yet when Lewis does it there's very little, if any, sympathy for Nico, even when it's as blatant as in Austin 2014. And all manner of justifications come out.
I do think F1 is richer for having Hamilton in it, if that helps. He's one of the greatest drivers of his generation. But I think it'd be richer still without his constant "I'm at war" mentality, which causes so much grief and disruption
Hamilton reminds me of Mansell so much in his persecution complex and the amount of drama he seems to be able to get involved in. While I acknowledge what you say is true it is those things that make me like Hamilton. I think I am a bit more generous than you and view his emotive comments more sincerly rather than him making manoeuvres for political gain. I believe that Hamilton believe(s?)d Rosberg genuinely hit him on purpose in Spa, knackered his Monaco quali run and that someone in Mercedes was doing something funny to his engines. Or I guess what I mean is he genuinely believed those things at the time I couldn't control himself enough not to blurt them out. I find that weakness quite endearing in a sport where it is so unusual from a top performer.
I actually think we have the age of the grey driver has long passed and we are very lucky.... Hamilton, Vettel, Kimi, Ricciardo, Verstappen, Hulk, Palmer, Magnussen, Grosjean, Alonso and Ericcson I find all have interesting, funny and individual personalities. The drivers themselves generally seem more friendly with eachother than we have seen for a long time as well.
