F1 » Hamilton's aggression has 'woken other drivers up'


As Red Bull Racing rival Mark Webber insists there is no 'witch hunt' or vendetta going on against Lewis Hamilton, Sir Jackie Stewart suggests the McLaren-Mercedes star's on-track aggression in F1 2010 has upset some of his rivals simply because it has 'woken them up'...

It is so ridiculous that they report they report the 'weaving' Hamilton did in Mal. GP as though he was blocking Petrov... It is clear that he was only trying to get him out of his tow, which is NOT what the 'one move' rule was designed to prevent. It was designed to prevent excessive blocking moves that were dangerous, which this wasn't.

The guy can drive "no doubt about it". Are the rest of the top drivers "afraid of him", I dont think so!
He puts on one hell of a show thats for sure! The series is much better off with him then without him. He better be careful though, it sounds like they are ready to penalize him for anything and they know if they put him in the back he will be passing and thats what they are looking for! Food for thought Hammi! :)

At the end of the day he is a racing driver for the sport and for our entertainment. And that is what he is doing. Imagine f1 atm without him, it would be pretty damn boring. The only reason certain drivers moan about him is because when If and when he gets behind them, he is the one witch hunting. So any chance they get to put him down, they jump at it.

I was waiting for this! The green eyed monster "jealousy" has reared it's ugly head! The majority of these guys on the grid don't have the skills or the balls to overtake! They all need to grow a pair!

Even Brundle was saying that Hamilton was not doing anything dangerous in Sepang and was just trying to break the tow from Petrov.
Hamilton does need to be careful due to these warnings he has recieved but i do not think any of the Malaysia incidents warranted warning given that Alonso did the same (or worse given it was his team mate)going into the pit entrance and then the incident with Webber and Vettel was down to not being able to go anywhere else given he was hemmed in on both sides by the Red Bulls.
Whether you like them or not Hamilton and Alonso have been bloody good value for F1 this year with their ability to pass other cars on the track, i for one want to see more of it :)

I see only one problem with this article. Webber isn't a New South Wales native. He's an ACT (Australian Captial Territory) native...

My opinion is that Hamilton is arrogant. My opinion, I'm not giving the right or wrong answer here. Mclaren have cuddled this guy from age 12, giving him everything on a silver platter. I think that he thinks his position is safe no matter what he does.

So don't comment on the story then, Angel H. Just get your petty, vindictive anti-Leiws comment in and run off. No one cares if you think he's arrogant, the same that no one will care that I think you're a tw@t.

for the past decade everyone got a bit used to a faster car following a slower one until the pit stops. Lewis hamiltoton has only been guilty of trying to race, there isnt one proper fan who doesnt want to see hamilton or equally alonso dueling for position. The good drivers can race without taking there oponent out of the race.
