12? 13? who cares? he still got shed-loads of money to race in the best equipment making the underlying point still entirely valid.

Would he have made it this far without Mclaren's help? who knows... on Driving Merit probably certainly... however there are plenty of people who can drive who aren't in good drives in series' across the world...

Mansell gained his place in F1 history the hard way and was not gifted it like Hamilton.

He was gifted his start in F1 by Dennis and gifted his 1st F1 Drivers Title by Glock

Mansell is spot on with his comments.

Hamilton if your not bothered by Mansell's words why feel the need to rise to the comments ?

Let's face it, since Dennis jumped ship you've been like a fish out of water, perhaps you'd do better leaving F1 to real driver's and going to work for Uncle Ron on the road car development, that way you can adorn yourself with even more ridiculous jewellery.

"He has his right to his own opinion, which doesn't really bother me. I don't really care about his opinion."
and because he doesnt care about anyones opinions, other current/former drivers will keep attacking him and fans will continue turning there back on him.
if he keeps it up he will have no commercial value and hence no drive!

Wish everyone would get off this kids back....just continuous hate....Mansell should know better given the leverage he's giving his own kids.

I go for Webber but still don't understand why the British build up their stars and then tear them apart.
Hamilton is a bloody good driver and provides just about half the entertainment with his balls out driving style.
If he was spotted young it was because he was bloody good, like in all sport and then developed.

Just tell em all to pi55 off...and drive hard...

I am not a fan of Hammis, I have warmed to him. Having said that I think Mansell made a mistake saying what he said and if I were him I would be embarrassed. Maybe too much champagne! Dont know. But a mature gentleman does not do what he did. Loose lips sink ships. He had loose lips. Next we will be reading an article about him waiting an hour and a half at Hammi's paddock to apoligize. Sound familiar? Was not a certain polish driver just apoligized to by another former F1 driver. These guys are getting old and jealous. Sad really.

@Big Bob
totally agree with glock gifting him the championship,
it was as clear as day on the tv, ron walked to the toyota pit, glock developes a "problem", shamelton wins. the hammy fanboys obviously turned a blind eye to that along with the FIA.
Liegate, weaving, need i say more?
jealousy? no! its about fairness! nobody likes a teachers pet!
