Lewis Hamilton: I'm not sure what happened at the start, but I lost ground and then suffered from tyre degradation at the end of the first stint...

A few people do act like "Hami Haters", but, in general, I just think people don't like his attitude!
I mean, we have to respect that he is fast, but he does make bad decisions on occasion, and when things don't go his way he doesn't show much grace.

Taipan, that is pretty funny though... SPOT THE IRONY.

I have also never been a fan of Maldonado, but I think he's better than Senna. Though I guess none of us know what happened in that corner. BUT he is a race driver, not a safety car driver. If you're that close behind a Ferrari, running at a better pace and Young, you're gonna want to try pass. I think personally, he might have opened the DRS a little early? But until we hear a statement we'll just be guessing.

i think hamilton has every right to be disappointed and if he was 'happy' with this result, considering he started from pole, i would be a little worried.

these guys are all winners and they are winners because they have an overwehlming drive to win and don't easily accept failure.

when alonso messed up in quali he was angry and quite rightly so. he is a winner and hates to lose same as any top sportsman.

TLG, while you asking me if I watched the race or not you look like you don't know what happened to Maldonado even so you was watching the race, that goes to show how good a judgement you can arrive at over what happens in a race.
In my last post what I wrote were the words of two long standind mclaren friends of mine.

lol i know what you mean about me saying i dont like MAL but as usual people take things and spin it. what i mean by hammy hater are the people who purposely go for attack even when he has done a good job like in qually the haters couldn'tsay anything instead they just say "its easy when you have the fastest car" its like give the guy some credit he has done a good job.

now the difference with me saying i dont like MAL is although i don't i still will say he has done a good job no matter what i enjoy the sport not the politics or "showbiz" about it, i like the race and i will compliment good performances not matter what the person is like off the track. and i thought that it was hamiltons fault last year driving inside of MAL so i dont dislike him for that incident he just seems to reckless for the car he is in. and i know you will probably say well hamilton was but hamilton was driving a mclaren the car is in that position to do the overtakes and risky things hamilton was d

The dark brooding look on Lewis Hamiltons face on the podium said it all.. he knows he will never have a car to attack his team mate this year,because the decision was fallen to make Button WDC when he signed his contract last year,and he does not intend to be scrapping with Hamilton for wins, so Mclaren are making sure it wont happen. Hamilton just has to be ready to capitalize when his team mate fails, if he fails. The big question is,can he handle it ?

What a complete and utter bunch of Bull$hit!!!

Seriously?!?! If anything, LH was the blue eyed boy of Mclaren: Young, British, Talented, and he'd been there a while and already been champ. Where do you guys come up with this stuff? Do you really think they'd decide "OK, we have two gr8 drivers, let's MAKE one crash, destroy his tyres and just generally not be as quick on race pace..." ?

Fact of the matter is Hamilton uses oversteer to get the car turned. With Bridgestone, that worked, on Pirelli, it kills his tyres. And I guess Jenson is just really driving well!!! Why can't you people see that!?

three eyes. mclaren making sure that lulu doesnt challenge button for wdc??

whilst believing that button is the de facto number 1, there is no way that mclaren would sabotage any drivers chances. these sort of wild theories surface every year in other teams such as rbr, ferrari etc. but they are all utter tosh.
why would a team pay a driver 15m and then hobble him?
