What he probably meant was "he's the best driver in F1... that we could get".

Come on Niki you know better than that that Hamilton isn't the best driver in F1 for many reasons & the main reason is that there is someone called Fernando Alonso that is the best driver.

This is just Niki saying this because he's got a management role at Mercedes.

Yes, most probably Halminton is formula 1 best driver,is
Mercedes the team? Didn't they have seven times world
champion with them. Not sure is the car is no good enough or Schumacher has suddenly lost his driving ability.

SpeedD, you may be right, as we all know the 2009 McLaren wasnt very good, until Hungary, at which point, incidentaly he was behind Alonso in his rubbish, Renault and an unmotivated Raikkonen is his rubbish Ferrari in the drivers championship.

I think nick is Schuey's biggest hater. Come on,... If Hamilton (and Rosberg) are a front runner next year, that's partly Schuey's hard work. He invest his talent, technical input, time and all the bad mouth about him. He never choose the best car, but build it. Sadly someone took it at the last.

Yeah... The best driver who was unable to pass Michael Schumacher who was driving much more inferior car for almost 22 laps couple years ago.... Lauda just wants to keep his payroll slip from Merc..

Lewis Hamilton isn't the best driver, he's the fastest. YES, He his faster than Alonso. Alonso is the best all round package. He grinds out podiums from hopeless starting positions. Tactically, he's more complete/astute and I believe from recent interviews regards Lewis to be blisteringly quick.

In 1996 a German, called Michael Shumacher left the cosy surroundings at Benneton to resurrect the fortunes of the sports most famous marque. He could've stuck around but chose to find a new challenge. Well countless titles later, he still reigns supreme as F1's king, regardless of his latest 3 year adventure.

Lewis is in exactly the same boat. Spent 14 years at Mclaren. No doubt that Mclaren largely shaped his career but I believe he's paid them back, ten fold. Its just what F1 Needed. Yes, its been a rollercoaster of a season, the best in years, it can only get better.

Time to move one. We all do at some point.
