I really don't understand how LH will ever satisfy pple on this site. its was obvious both Mclaren were not the fasters in race mode yesterday.

LS was called in last and delayed twice moreover losing time following JB damaged car while also avoiding the debris.

Alonso and Perez jump him as a result of the pit stop flaws. i think he drove well enough to keep out of trouble.

I wonder why the trend and headline on crash is not full of JB crash, lack rain master skill as it was obvious he struggled more than LH on those tires in wet

I also wonder why Mclaren called JB into the pit first when the same Mclaren claim it is their policy to call leading driver pit first.

sunny. it is often the case that cars with lower power or aero downforce, manage to do better on wet tracks. i dont know if this is the reason why lulu could not keep of with two currently midfield cars? but look towards the end. when seb put on his new tyres, he was catching lulu quite fast. i reckon that lulu would have been caught in a couple of laps. maybe the tyres had gone off?
or maybe it had something to do with the removal of tape from the brake ducts? one was not removed properly so could it be unbalanced brakes?

Now here is a piece that I left out from my post to give a chance for the disagree buttons to be pressed!
My point was that when Lulu spoke about the third place he managed he wasn't telling the truth, the important thing that mattered for him was finishing in front of his team mate, and apart from not telling the truth that is the way it should be, I always maintained over here that the number one priority for any driver is beating his team mate, anything else is secondary.

Richard, Lulu was so engrossed in beating his team mate that when he was sure it was done he for the first time I can remember forgot to blame something.
But honestly I am still trying to figure out what and why.

it seems you are too focus on putting LH down that you couldn't understand his English. LH clearly stated he lost time as a result of the pit error, not changing on time and he also stated the Mclaren could do with better race pace even if it mean loosing straight line speed.
if he went on blaming his team hard u will be the first to complain and of cause every driver will be happy if there misfortune is less than there team mate. was JB sad when LH failed answer is NO

Jose translation.
"If you know what LH is thinking while he is driving, then you are such a good Psychic that you should rent a store and hang out your shingle"
Not sure if the shingle thing will mean anything to someone in the UK, but it's basically just a sign with your name and profession hung outside the store front...
See "Man Who Shot Liberty Valence" for an example.
Nyuk. nyuk.

@107SS2009, the question is IF Hamilton HAD been called in at the optimum moment and HAD recieved proper service from his pit crew, would he have ended up behind Alonso and Perez anyway?
IMO the team most likely cost him a win on Sunday.
