Ron'sgoldenboy
At last you talk sense with your reference to Lulu not being as good a Vettel.
But when you say Button is not as marketable you are talking bull***t.Jenson epitimises the Mclaren ideal. Ron Dennis had hoped Lulu would but hasn't. Ron Dennis would have ditched any other rider who brought the team name into disrepute like Lulu has. Yes, Martin Whitmarsh is a Jenson fan but that is needed when Ron Dennis chooses to ignore Lulu's tantrums.
To say Jenson's 2012 should be sabotaged is a pathetic and shameful thing to say when only a few months ago we Dan Wheldon and Marco Simoncelli.

Hammi should get the updates first, he is the more exciting driver. I dont say Buttons car should be sabotaged to the effect of making it more dangerous to drive, just slower so that Hammi looks better.

If they make JBs car slower than lulu's, then boy blunder will probably crash into it. It's individuals like you, ron, that make lulu so unpalatable. With all the inanities the lulu boppers post in here are really not helping his case and I'm pretty sure he would be embarrassed to read them. That's assuming he still has an iota of humility left in him. I'll plead the fifth on this one.

Google, I never said that James Hunt had anything to do with Bling the term bling is what you have used.
And if you want to associate Hammi's glamour life outside f1 as bling then that is a very stereotype View. Yes he does sport a cool earring and yes he is on the covers of a few magazine and yes he does have friends from the world R&B and yes he has dated the likes of glamour model Danielle Lloyd, and the sexy Asian Jodia Ma. I wont mention Pussy cat girl, but this is not bling this an f1 driver who has a high profile globally who just happens to drive a f1 car very well.

But i do agree if this life style is affecting his driving then he needs to think again.


All Lewis needs to do is manage the Pirelli's and focus more on f1 and we will see the Lewis of old because we all can see the the raw talent is still there

I didnt say Vettel is not a good driver, but Hamilton is an outstanding, once in a century talent that could one day be the most complete driver ever. But right now Vettel is probable better and would even beat Hamilton in the same team. But you never know, Hamilton could still develop and mature, he is only 25. Lets hope McLaren dont drop him because there is only a seat at HRT left.

basemretal, i reckon that t is just you trying to stir.

REGISTER, it doesnt cost anything and i havent found any downsides. you shoul not be afraid to register if you are trying to be a poster to be taken seriously. although your last post worries me. lulu the most complete driver ever? who are you kidding? a complete driver wouldnt be trounced three years running, and wouldnt keep making the same stupid mistakes. to me a complete driver would be one who can drive in other formulae or classes such as moss, clark, hill, fangio etc and quite honestly, lulu will never attain that level. now, go and prove me wrong and REGISTER

Ok, so I'm wondering how long it is until someone finally says it...guess I'll be waiting a while so I'll do it.

Everyone keeps crapping on about how he's one of world sports biggest draw cards and media darlings cause of how fast he is blah blah blah...

Well, there's no doubt that he's fast, but let's all get real, the only reason he has been so big on the world sport stage is because he's black. There, I said it. It's not racist, it's just a fact. Lewis hamilton is black, and the first black driver in F1, he just also happens to be pretty quick.

THAT is the reason he's such a draw card, and that's all. He's the Golden Goose (as jose puts it) because he's black. God know's it's not cause of his outstanding, bubbly personality, that's for sure!

How else do you explain someone who is bigger in the sport than Sebastian Vettel, someone younger and with twice as many WDC to his name and an infinitely better personality.

So come on then, cue the racist calls...
