blzbub. wow! that is a nice name (sorry rob)!
but one thing that rob does not seem to understand , is the fact that he considers lulu to be the best, yet his number 2,aka captain slow, in the SAME car, can outstrip lulu quite easily. and as rob claims, mclaren treat each driver equally , and with no team orders, how can he not see the obvious.
whilst saying all that, i hope that lulu gets rid of his demons, and at least makes an effort this year.

Mr/Ms “Who Cares” (unregistered) says “he is lucky that he is still driving for McLaren after that terrible season last year, it is about time McLaren got a new driver to partner Button in 2013”

And another unregistered person, Dirk Templar, says “What an over-rated waste of McLaren seat”

Really now!! Looks like Whitmarsh feels pretty lucky to have him in the stable. Dirk, can you seriously provide an obviously good alternative for McLaren? Maybe Vettel, Alonso, or some other champion? Not much choice, is there. The results of a bad season for Lewis beats the devil out of the total career for 99% of those that have driven in F1. Check it out. You might not like Hamilton or his mistakes, but he'll never go without a top drive as long as he wants it. You can count the number of F1 drivers of any era that have that ability on the fingers of one hand.

Do not feed the trolls people.

There are some real lifeless gits here who don't have a purpose for life other than to deteriorate Lewis Hamilton's worth in people's minds.

I'd tell them to get a life but their actions show no glimpse of hope.

Lewis Hamilton is a racing driver. Nothing to obsess about. Go obsess over a girl or something.

2009 as seen the light, my work on here has not been in vain. MW speaks BS. Well i know he has underachieved in the fastest car, but hey, if 2009 thinks his excuse manual is full of BS who am i to disagree.

As for Martin Whitmarsh Lewis should take anything he says with a pinch of salt this is the same man who said that Button was the cause of Lewis having a bad year whether his statement was right or not a team principal who is supposed to be impartial should not be making comments like that while drivers are still in a racing season.

Lewis watch your back mate.

Richard....where did "Captain Slow" come from?
Is it one of yours, like Lulu, Barrow etc. I haven't seen Button called that before today.
If it is yours, then good luck, you may have JB senior come calling in the middle of the night!!
