F1 » Hamilton 'driving better than ever'


Lewis Hamilton is looking forward to this weekend's Indian Grand Prix, insisting that recent results don't match his on-track performances.

@Harold, you don't like Lewis lifestyle? Let the priest or pope bother about that. The following knockout punch was delivered a few hours ago. Its one of those lovely little lessons:

"We will soon have fewer ships in the navy than any time since 1917"
-Mitt Romney

"We also have fewer horses and bayonets. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them, We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines... Its the strategy that matter"
-Barack Obama

Translated to F1, the above exchange reads, "its the speed that counts, not the haircut." Afterall, F1 is about racing.

Why all the hype about Hamilton vs. Alonso? Seb is proving that he is actually the best in F1 today.

And the horses, bayonets, and "aircraft carriers that airplanes land on" and "ships that go underwater..."

Well the horse thing was childish. And ALL of our infantry rifles still take bayonets and bayonet training is an integral part of boot camp. Obama thinks Aircraft carriers are something "new." they've been around since the 20's. And he also apparently thinks subs are "new technology." ...been around much longer than even aircraft carriers.
That was ignorant.

@Ptolomy

The horses and bayonets jibe is for those who complain about Lewis beard, or his babe, or his fans, or his dress sense... Things that have zero bearing on either F1 or his abilities. Yeah, that was a really wicked blow from Obama to Romney about his long stories about stuff that doesn't matter. F1 is about speed and high-tech and thats that.

As for Vettel, given a few more years, he might reach the levels of Alonso and Lewis. He is still quite young - Lewis is a couple of years older and Alonso is much older still - age and experience count.

quade. are you sure that you are not rgb in disguise? it is no wonder that some of us like taking the mick out of lulu fanboys.

to say that in a few years, vettel will have caught up with lulu is hilarious. have you not been watching f1 over the last three years? vettel has already caught up and passed lulu. it is now lulu who needs to mature and catch up with ferdi, vettel, kimi, etc

ty. welcome back. your input has been sorely missed! even jose has been having witdrawal symptoms. and as for his dog, it has been sulking in the corner.

richard, when have you ever seen me bring American politics on this site and if you would digest my posts like another Vettel fan Angelina you would know that i rate Vettel, Alonso and Hammi on the same level with Alonso being the allrounder, Hammi being the most natural and Vettel being the most clinical when the opportunity is there.

Ive only used 3 registered user names .

Hi Ty, richard, Jayne. Been a bit busy. The Hamfangitas are obsessed about hate.
Once and for all. Ham is a great racing driver and surely in the top three for raw speed. However the huge cost of F1 is paid for by global companies who want to promote their brands and products. They wish to be associated with the fastest drivers and most successful teams. Winners! In an ideal world it is preferable that your driver avoids making repeated and highly embarrassing mistakes, and or, cretinous outbursts, in public. Fast, or not, do you really want to associate your company with someone who behaves like a 12 year old? So, Fanjitas, IT ISN'T HATE! I just prefer it if my sport does not become a global laughing stock. F1 is a serious sport and business, not a joke, and Ham's immature behaviour is very damaging for all concerned. Surely you can see that.

To quote Quade:
Lewis has more talent than Alonso, but Alonso is much older and experienced. Lewis needs that same level of experience, hopefully he will complete that journey next year (much earlier than Alonso did) and go on to become the legend he is destined to be.

--------------------

So you recognise something that Ron Dennis, a whole team principal and company CEO does not? Well, good for you! And you thereby prove richard right again, when he tells you to blame Ron Dennis for Kimi's victory in 2007! Why are you continuing this self-defeating argument and fighting a losing battle in doing so??

By the way, again, the last time I checked, Alonso and Vettel each had 2 WDC's to their name and Lewis had only 1. And one of those guys is on his way to a third title as we speak! So yet again, the facts out there DO NOT match up to your statements. Next thing, you'll be telling us that titles do not matter in F1, but natural speed does.

Alonso and Vettel are no slouches in an F1 car.

Well you can't climb out of a well with one hand tied behind your back, Vettel thumbs up, and my favourite to win his 3rd in a row, but for Alonso, oh please! Here in Brazil he is not rated that high, as much as we love the red car, tell me since 2006 what has he won? If Massa has the same freedom Lewis and Button has at McLaren. Alonso won't be in contention to win another title. Its bad enough asking another driver to crash into the wall for him to win, its bad enough telling a driver to slow down so that he could pass, but telling a driver to staying within 2 seconds away from Alonso meaning if Alonso has a slower lap automatically Massa has to have a slower lap. If Alonso bottles this season that would say more about him as a driver.
