Great racer??

Drive into Massa, Maldonado, Webber, Button, Get passed twice by 41yo Schumacher, 4 times under investigation by the stewards, brings the sport into disrepute by blaming, stewards, compeditors, skin colour etc. Gets 8 points while his team mate earns 40 points, and thats all in 2 races!!

Soooo thats a great racer is it?

What part of my previous post do you think is inaccurate?

To answer your question, no I couldnt do better, but thats why im not paid millions to be a "professional" driver.

MAMBA... those things happened at a sub standard F1 track and a wet Canada. Hardly the call for someones head. Many many drivers made contact. Or do you just have selective memory.

Mamba- it seems obvious that your dislike of Hamilton is not allowing rational thought but I will try to explain-

Racing is a sport that keeps cars constantly on the edge of disaster if you are going to win. It is very easy to slip just over the edge and it happens to every driver, often if they are competitive.

It is all too easy to get into a slump for whatever reason- car problems, whatever- and need to push the line even more to have a chance.

Hamilton is far from the first driver to be in this situation and surely won't be the last.
Yes, he IS one of the great drivers- he has a WDC.
As do Vettel, Schumacher, Alonso and Button all of whom have screwed up at times (and sometimes often) as well.
