If Rosberg had won the WC it would have been one of the biggest ever injustices in sport.
I'm not really big into conspiracy theories but I do wonder if it was all fixed within the team after Spa i.e. Nico, you're allowed to get close and win a race or two but we're not gonna let you win the WC cos you're a cheat!
Nice thought Mackem, because he is a cheat, but I doubt they'd have said that and anyway......if they had, Rosberg would likely have told himself [and probably others] that he could have won! This way, he 'knows' he was beaten 'fair and square'......even if he doesn't know the meaning of those words!
If Rosberg had got the Championship, I think the crowd would have booed him again, but I'm just glad he didn't!
