-50 cent, Hamilton was replying to the many reporters on his feelings about the two holdups with the rear wheel problems, he gave a calm measured reply but as usual he was stated as being "fuming?" dont think so.once again the haters twist what he said.

50 Cent-

I agree completely that what happened to Schumacher was a worse result. If you haven't got it right in the pit lane, keep the car there until you do even if it does mean a slow stop. It is better to lose a few seconds than have to retire the car (or run the risk of something worse happening). It just can't be repeated frequently if you're a team capable of challenging for the championship.

With McLaren's slow stops at the last two race weekends, and then two more slow stops today I imagine that there was a group of reporters around him asking him how he felt about the situation. I suppose he could have given an answer something along the lines of "The guys work really hard and normally give Jenson and I great stops, and I'm sure it wont be an issue going forward." That may well have gone a ways in boosting the team. Personally, I'd rather they acknowledge that its an area where they can improve.

Yeah I completely agree with the above Zak. Hardly fuming is it. Schui's words the other week were perhaps more appropriate to avoid getting a headline like this. I'm not a Lewis fan, but I don't get why so many people get a kick out of blasting him at every given opportunity. I would probably have said something worse if I was taken to a nasty island to race in the hot sand and had 20 seconds of delays

Win together, lose together! The important word being together! All successful drivers have built a strong team around them. I wonder what Schumi's career record would look like without the togetherness of his teams?

@arcuid so you think Mclaren is sabotaging Lewis' chances in winning them the championship?

Nope because they won't win the Constructors Title that way.

If the team muck up this year in pit stops as often as you did last year Lewis colliding with Massa etc, you'll have a poor year !!!!!!

As Martin Whitemarch suggested...thats life, get over it and keep your head down, you are still in a fairly good position.
