Nico Rosberg on supercars

I've been complaining about journos reviewing supercars but who can't turn a proper corner, but nobody is going to accuse this guy of that.

Also he seems to have a very nice, relax and easy going on-screen quality - a very un-German trait. The guy is pretty articulate as well. Mika Hakkinen looks like a grandpa next to him. The video production quality is really good too. There are a lot more vids on his Youtube channel that I think you're going to like. Don't forget to subscribe to his channel since he really needs the cash :-) I think TopGear should hire him and that's no joke.

I don't think I've seen any car reviewing vid that is absolutely right on the edge at every single corner like in this reviewing. He can probably show Randy Pobst a few things :-)






And the obligatory drag race Tesla vs. whatever supercar!

Good stuff!

I've been watching a guy named "Car Wizard" on YouTube.
He's an off shoot of Hoovies Garage.
He's a professional mechanic who has worked on many European brands.
He has a very relaxed and easy going banter and he tells his opinion on cars based on his experience as a professional mechanic.

Not saying Randy Pobst is on Rosberg's level. But Randy is a very successful sports car racer. He has raced in countless series, won multiple championships. He is also a two time class winner at 24hr of Daytona.

Rosberg could teach a lot of these so-called journalists a thing or too. But Randy is quite capable in the cars he tests. His times are legit, especially at Laguna Seca.

Obviously it was a joke. Randy is just as capable as Rosberd.

There is no way Pobst is as capable as Rosberg.

Have a point. I am not an F1 driver so I'm probably not the best person to judge.

And my two cents is that Randy Pobst is better on camera. Nico is ok, but comes off as a bit of a boy racer, and maybe that's the european thing. Pobst is more engaging in the car, better commentary etc.....just my two cents.

I agree. Nico is a bit more showboating. But he has the potential to be something like Jeremy Clarkson he if wants to.

And talking of boating ... It's good to be a F1 champ indeed.

never liked Rosberg, and still dont..
pushing Senna was nice to watch though.. otherwise, he was performing 130% to win the title.. he knew he probably wouldnt able do it again and he quit.. he s just an unsympathetic guy probably the most among all champs.. they dont even like to keep him on commentary box..

Yeah, I don't think he has the talent of Lewis Hamilton . You're right he probably tried 180% to win the title. He seems a little young to quit F1 ... maybe was forced but what do I know .

I wish to have his problem. Personally I'd go with the Koenigsegg Regera. He's right about the Ferrari SF90. Something about it that looks a bit too derivative - like a Ferrari 911. The LaFerrari is a much more outlandish looking car and so much better for it.
