So incensed was Ferrari's Felipe Massa following his collision with Lewis Hamilton in today's Singapore Grand Prix that he accosted his McLaren-Mercedes rival post-race and accused him of being unable to 'use his mind'

ferret, if Lewis does get banned from F1 boards like these won't have as much posts since there won't a villain for bashers to talk about. Bad boys get more press then good guys. lol

arcuid you got a good point there.
But Lewis has messed alot of other drivers races, just because he wants to win, and at the same time he has shot himself in the foot!
Why Can't Lewis race as an intelligent driver and if he cannot win, then go for consistancy instead!
As title says "Hamilton incapable of using his brain" so there is little or no sign of intelligence there!
People have won championships for being consistant instead of winning all the time, and just picking up the pieces where others have failed. But in lewis case, he fails and others capitalise where he messes up!

if you drive to win, a broken frontwing and a drive through penalty isn't much help. you lose much more time than in two laps of patience. if lewis had much more wins than jenson, i would admit that the aggressive tactics would pay off. but the only thing lewis wins is attention.
the difference to senna and to schumi (in his prime) is that the times and the rules have changed, you need to adapt. schumi's difficulties in this are understandable, he's too old. but for lewis i see no excuse.
i don't say that you have to drive in a parade. webber has shown on several occasions that it's possible to take risks without paying too much. look at china for example or his recent fights with alonso. he knows what is possible and what isn't.
it wouldn't harm lewis to get some reason in his driving style. it's not massa who would benifit most.

I commend Massa for confronting LH during his interview. Lewis had the opportunity to discuss the issue privately however treated Massa with utter contempt...as he does most drivers. We want personality in the sport, we want to see the emotion and drama, and yet you Hammy supporters berate Massa for 'how dare he' confront Hamilton on camera. I wonder what you'd all say if it was the other way around. The 'proud and courageous Hammy fighting for his rights'.....Puhlease! Lewis completely stuffed up, thats why he's not commenting on the incident.

ferret, true LH did mess up a lot. Also the fact that his team mate JB is doing better the pressure is getting to him. Some people thrive under pressure some don't hence the mistakes being made. This is the first time Lewis has to contend with a team mate he gets along with very well, is beating him, and is establishing himself in the McLaren garage and Lewis does not really know how to deal with it because he has been with the team for most of his life. He does not have the experience of being in another team and that might be scary for him so the confidence level seems to be cracking. Lewis is still a fast driver but he needs to pull himself together.

arcuid. if lulu was banned, of course posters would revert to someone else, probably seb as he is a young guy doing well, or ferdi, or nico etc etc.
but i really believe that fia need to take some positive action, maybe a three race suspension. otherwise he will continue to be a hooligan.
niki was criticised for saying that he will kill someone if not reined in, but niki is right. lulu clipped and punctured flips rear tyre on the straight at 200mph. if deflation was instant, we could have had a serious incident. i know its all ifs and buts, but something has to be done.
i bet that if someone like algy or perez, etc, had been involved in so many incidents, they would not be racing now

DontTalkshite,I have to disagree.The sport does have a personality in Hamilton,but people don't like it.
Yes,he's forceful and speaks his mind,but would you rather hear an average driver in a rubbish car toe the company line?
I'd rather watch Button,Hamilton,Webber,Alonso,make overtaking moves,than Massa complain when someone passes him,albeit aggresively,or the "after you,no after you" attitude that we had for a while?

@DTS Not so sure if there was an opportunity for Massa and Lewis to talk prior to being interviewed. Both drivers could have talked it out during the Podium Ceremonies but I guess not. For some it may be commendable for Massa to show how he feels to a TV audience but some will dismiss it as sour graping. I guess it depends on the viewers perception.

@richard, I was trying to lighten the discussion! LOL Jeez you are so serious. :)
