MaccaForLife im not saying you have to marry him just do what i do watch him in a race car he,s better than most . I don,t care what he does out of the car i pay money to watch the best of the best drivers in the world and whether you like him or hate him he is one along with kimi alonso vettle . And for anyone silly enough to say he got a lucky w/c no one ever gets a lucky w/c its over a whole season. Next year we will see what merc can and if what lewis does compared to nico

Seems as many hamilton lovers as haters here. If I want an opinion on a subject i go to an expert.Not armchair F1 pundits , alonso says unequivocally hamilton is the only man who could win the championship without having the best overall car.
Enough said even after the falling out he had with hamilton.

@neutral observer, Alonso did indeed say exactly that, he also said, again unequivocally "never in a red car", Alonso says many things, and most of the have a purpose, i'm afraid i'd have to call into question your neutrality if you simply take Alonso's words at face value without taking on board the fact that Hamilton and Alonso have been kissing each others backsides for most of this season, and the logical reason for that would be because Vettel is kicking both their backsides, the enemy of my enemy is my friend etc. Clearly if Hamilton could win the WDC without the best car he would have done so more than once in 6 years, in fact he's only managed it once in 6 years despite having the best car on many occasions. Lewis has left the building, he's closed the door marked MTC, and opened the one lablelled Obscurity. Hallelujah.

kiwi. (i always think of you as 'kwikfit'). i just saw your earlier post about me. have you no sense of humour? i was responding to a bit of banter with lulumerc, and to help you, i even put a smiley beside it.
of course i was not being serious about lulu being lapped. pretty near impossible as the mercs would have to be 2 secs a lap slower to be at risk, and in the current spec, they are only around 1 sec a lap.
you really need to lighten up and avoid attacking anybody who you dont agree with.

oh, and i CAN see into the future. i see that lulu will not win the wdc next year :D :D (for your benefit)

@Kiwibob - Luck plays a huge role in winning the world championship. Kimi was very lucky that the final race unfolded the way that it did when he won his championship. Just because luck plays a factor does not mean that the winning driver is not deserving. Was Massa unlucky when he lost the championship in 2008 or was Lewis lucky that Ferrari messed up Massa's pit stop in Singapore? Either one would have been a deserving champion but the luck of the draw decided who the champion was.

This is like Rossi leaving Yamaha for Ducati. Except Rossi had real reasons for leaving Yamaha, like a teammate that in his mind was benefiting from Vale's development.

To me, it sounds like Hamilton made a mostly emotional decision here. To me that shows a certain immaturity. I'm sure a small part of it is to spite someone. It can't be the challenge, cause he has enough of a challenge winning a title in the McLaren, but they are vastly better positioned than Mercedes.

Vale left Yamaha because Jorge was beating him and ruining his image. Not because Vale is some uber developer which has been completely dis-proven with the performance of Ducati, almost 2 years after he joined up. Jorge beat Rossi since race 1.

Immaturity is making unfounded and baseless assumptions, Lewis is leaving McLaren because they are not giving him the technical support he believes he deserves, as well as possible some other freedoms that Damon Hill has alluded to. He obviously does not believe in Sam Michael, as its plainly clear if you saw how he treated Michael after one of the races, he also does not seem to care much for a guy like Whitmarsh who is clearly lacking in the leadership and credibility department.

I am sure you believe Lewis to be an over emotional clod whose out to spite someone, because thats how you choose to see him. But ... well, you dont know him, and you base your decisions off commentators trying to make Lewis out to be an over emotional dolt, becaus
