The f2012 although not the fasts was the most versatile as it could perform in most condition where the faster Mclaren ,Red Bull and Lotus could not perform in some conditions. Mclaren struggled in the rain. Anyway Lewis as already dealt with the most complete driver in f1

In a bad car? WTF! Lewis has never been in a bad car in his entire career. He has always had the BEST machinery thanks to Ron. When things aren't going his way he spits the dummy and this move is just another example of his flawed mentality. Merc have just made a huge error of judgement, wait and see. This guy is a time bomb, hopefully he crashes only his own car.

How can Alonzo be the best driver when he has a teamate that is not allowed to compete against him? When Massa is in front of him he must eventually move over to give him the lead. Hamilton on the other hand is treated like a number 3 driver when he is a top driver. Say what you want but you can't call a driver the best in F1 if his own teamate is not allowed to compete against him! Shumi and Serb has also had that benefit and all the years that Hamilton has been with Maclaran he has never been given the benefit of having a teamate that would just roll over and let him be number one. Think about it?

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 be
st in years, it can only get better.Time to move one. We all do at some point.


Iam a hamilton fan and even though he didnt say hamilton was the best driver this

Best statement made on this topic due to fact that yes alonso has more wins fininshes and more titles but giving the same car n same team hamilton will out drive anyone
Another thing i dislike vettle very much but when he has topic i dont even read much less post comment so why is it so many of u ppl who dislike hamilton want to spend your time chatting about him? Doesnt make sense to me
