Lewis Hamilton: I'd love to have been able to challenge Nico, and I think maybe I'd have been able to if I'd started on the front row...

Well done Lu, your leading the championship even with poor pit stops which wasn't tour fault in two of the gp's and a 5 place grid penalty again which was not your fault. How far ahead in the championship could you have been if not for these unfortunate situations, but when things are not going well and you can still be leading it bodes well for the rest of the season.

Must qualify in front of Jenson as much as possible this season as he looks awesome in race mode.

Too bad he lost valuable time and tyre wear being stuck behind Massa with Webber in his gearbox on fresh tyres, by the time he had caught up with Perez he was lacking the essential traction needed to pass him. Such a shame,as i wanted to see a Button-Hamilton battle.

It was difficult to tell which driver was quicker today, Lewis or Jenson, but both performed exceptionally well.
Lewis seems genuinely happy these days, and more at peace with himself. Whatever the reasons, the passes he made today were controlled, aggressive, and intelligent.
Well done, McLaren boys.

@Dave Could be because Lewis is in a happier spot in his personal life and also that he has a manager now with him in the form Didier Coton at least on race weekends. He can focus more on racing and not be so distracted by other things

mickey. why would i be eating humble pie? i even praised lulu for not doing his usual trick when passing massa today! but once again, button has shown that he is the better driver of the two. lulu has been in the position of leading the wdc before, yet then failed! and remember, this is only the third race of 20. so 17 more races to either win or stuff up. which will he do? if i was a betting man, i reckon that i would get better odds on him stuffing up. but we'll see.

richard did it ever occur to you if Lewis didn't change his gearbox he would not have had that penalty that possibly cost him second? So far he has been on the podium 3 times even though he's finish 3rd in all counts. Nice of you to give him credit but come on be fair here and so far he hasn't stuffed it up. Ok have to get some sleep now. Have work in the morning. We'll debate nest time. Goodnight.
