Bob, Lewis's father is black and his mother is white that makes him mixed race, and yes very marketable and popular i think Rhiana visited him in Canada and i think one of Britain's best comics Rowan Atkinson came to support him at on of the races this year. I just wonder when the prime minister or president Obama will visit the Mclaren paddock to see you know who.

Ron, on my part this is the end of having to calculate who is who using of names, you had all the time in the world to register, as you didn't it seems to me that you are taking advantage of your name being used.

Taipan,like you I've been analysing drivers and their defenders/detractors. Like you I've got some questions and like you I'm not afraid to ask them. 1 Why are you so keen to WHIP Hamilton except in a car, why do you want to MANAGE him, why is he one of the luckiest persons on the planet,why do you want to teach him where and when to pass,why does he have to get your ok as to how he replies to an interview. And to Bob yes he is, as you say Black, which again has me wondering why Taipan wants to Whip him into shape or otherwise.

Another question to the anti Hamiltons, given his pre-F1 record, if he was not deserving of a drive in a top team,MaClaren,Brawn,Renault,Ferrari etc, then how can you account for Sutil,Rossberg,Vettel etc being in F1.

What makes you think Vettel or Rosberg did worse pre F1 ? In some ways they have been tested in a more realistic scenario which is now paying off for them, id say they are mentally better equipped for F1. They have also won and even dominated in series like GP2 or FormulaBMW, dont kid yourself in believing Hamilton would wipe the floor with them in equal eqipment. He never has and never will, unless you think Button is an endallarguments Senna+Schumacher kind of driver.

@ Bob
Sorry mate but been there done that. In a previous post I mentioned his "obvious singularity to all other drivers in F1 history". Nice try tho.
