For what seems like the umpteenth time this season, McLaren-Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton has opened his mouth and courted controversy, this time accusing Williams rival Rubens Barrichello of being 'content with just existing' in F1

Are you bunch of idiots completely blind? There is nobody faster or better than Hamilton out there. Put him in the same car as Vettel, Alonso or whoever, he will blow them away. As to him and Button, Button is 3rd rate compared to him and no comparison.
Todays incident with Massa was a racing incident and the drive through was a joke. Massa's comments about Hamilton show that he is still bitter about losing the 2008 title to a much better driver. Hamilton should be triple world champion by now, 2007, 2008 & 2010, so that proves he is best driver in F1 currently, even though he might be a bit reckless occasionally.
BRING ON 2012.

Aldo... being the fastest over one lap doesnt make you the best ever.. the best on the grid... as Alonso, Button,Vettel demonstrates.. they all easily match Hamilton on single lap pace but then trounce him in EVERY other area. Hamilton could have been a 3 time world champ now but he cant hack the pressure at all.. Id be suprised to see him winning another champ honestly. Button leads that team now.

And as for Massa he has right to be pissed off, Hamilton wacked him at Silverstone,wacked him at Monaco,tried to hit him quali, wacked him in the race

To aldo2654 on the penalty issue, right on. Just a racing incident, and Massa moved into him for cripes sake. I also think Hamilton is phenominally fast and a creative passer. However, he needs his head examined. He is an interesting psychological study. He needs to compare himself publicly with the best (all the Senna comments) and the not-so-best (now Barrichello) in order to convince others to recognize himself as a "great one". Very insecure. He's trying to take the short-cut to recognition. It never works. Bring us results Lewis, and then we'll believe. If you believe in yourself, you can do it. You do believe in yourself, Lewis...don't you?? He is very clearly the only one standing in the way of his own success, which is quite easily available. the car is really quite good this year.

Nath, that was a tap as he only brushed Massa's wheel. Remember Maldonado a few races ago basically got with hitting Hamilton. OK he got grid penalty, but it was at faster speed and much more dangerous. I would either give Massa a drive through or ban him for being TOO slow.

Hamilton I think is the only pure out and out racer in F1. The only way to pass is to take chances when they see one and that is what he does. Street circuits are very tigh twisty and I don't think they really suit his driving style, he likes wide open flowing tracks like Monza & Silverstone.

Hamilton's attitude is bordering on being arrogant and disrestpectful towards other drivers...Granted he's a great driver but that does not justify him criticizing either his team or other drivers. Rather then issuing threats to his employers , he should look up the standings or the Singapore GP results where a certain Mc Laren driver seemes to have race winning pace....

I noticed Uncle Ron was at the race. Perhaps the Lewis tirade was for his benefit, hoped Ron would sort it out for him.I'm sure a couple of mechanics on Lewis' side of the garage would love the chance to take him behind the woodshed. Spoiled brat.
