hamilton despite not driving a red bull, could quite easily turn up in korea and win, his recent record of two points finishes in the last five races have almost terminally cripled his championship challenge and has kept jenson button right on his heals in the championship challenge, up to belgium he had ten points finishes out of eleven, then martin whitmarsh dubbed vettel the 'crash kid', from which point vettel hasnt been out of the top four, whitmarsh cant be blamed for the mclaren drivers falling away, but perhaps a little bit of time spent analysing the performances his drivers (hamilton in particular) need to find would have yeilded better results over the subsequent five races since belgium.
I believe ron dennis would have made certain that hamilton knew what he needed to do

Bad race at korea then its over for you lulu. Unfortuently for us fans it could be a 3 way race after korea which is a shame because i wanted all 5 in abu dhabi to be in contention.

He does race with his heart, in that I definitely agree...it makes for intense and oftentimes classic racing.

Trouble is, this is the exact same way he rode as a rookie. At this point he needs to combine that natural instinct with some degree of maturity in his approach to racing.

He should remember that there's another important organ other than the heart that wins races...and it's right between the ears.
