I'm just wondering where its ever been implied that Rosberg has better support than Schumacher, also Lewis is consistently better than Jenson in qualifying, more often than not he suffers with strategy. However whats certain is that Schumacher always had better support than his teammates during his time at Ferrari so does he always need this level of support to be succesful?
It hasn't been implied anywhere, I think, though the LH/JB analogy from one perspective is not bad at all. This is OT, but Hamilton's comments about JB's technical team, is quite telling, IMHO. I seriously doubt that Hamilton's side of the garage is less adept professionally than Button's. What defines them as a 'team' is the ability to work together successfully towards a common goal on a day by day, minute by minute basis. In that, I think the driver is the decisive factor. I see JB as being proactive, for instance in strategies and communication, whereas LH is not. He questions, when JB decides, in a manner of speaking. I see something similar at Merc. MS has always been proactive, whereas NR seems to be less effective in that field. So I think that the kind of "support" you are speaking of, is not given, it is achieved, and is an integral part of racecraft.
