And there was me thinking that the little epic one didn't need the most dominant car to win - it's all down to his speed and talent - or so some fans would have us believe. Can't argue now that Hammi says otherwise!

Inianapolis, why would any of the other drivers be running scared of Hamilton. Hes heading unerringly for 5th place in the championship again - his natural position it would seem.

I can't help but wonder what it is with these excessive diplomatic views Lewis keeps throwing out. Move on buddy, I understand his regret but it sounds like sour grapes from the readers prospective. It's good bye and good riddance to McLaren and Welcome and Hello to Mercedes as far as you are concerned my dear fellow. So lets not dwell too much about the past.

Give Button a championship challenging car and he will deliver the WDC, is the clarion call I've heard for the last 3 years. Yet this has been a reality in 2010 and 2012 and he is nowhere to be seen. What a surprise? The double standards regarding these two drivers defies logic. All drivers have good and bad luck,but in this regard Hamilton has had the sh1t end of the stick. Unless you conclude Maldonado, going off the track and taking out Hamilton, his fault, it is widely acknowledged he has been faultless this season and he still vilified for not delivering, while Button gets a free pass.

tom, Lewis has finished above two reining champion in the same car and is about to finish above the 2009 champion again. In the same car he will beat Vettel he has already done Alonso. So that is why those drivers are running from Lewis and his fifth place were in inferior car to Vettel and Webber put Lewis in the RB8 OR 7 and Vettel would be spitting his dummy.

Vettel lucky??!! It wasn't so long ago Red Bull were a midflield team. Vettels done his time, stuck with the team and deserves credit. Hes been mature and always supported his team even when theyve made mistakes. On the other hand Hamilton has acted like a spoilt brat came into one of the strongest teams in F1,.. put telemetery up on twitter constantly criticized his team mates..I think Ross has invested in a BIG BIG headache!

Andy, you wanted McLaren's 6 years constructors results pre-Lulu?

2001 - 2nd
2002 - 3rd
2003 - 3rd
2004 - 5th
2005 - 2nd
2006 - 3rd

So by and large the same sort of results as they've had with epic Lulu in the team. Hasn't really helped them much has he?

Of course those 6 years were in the days of Ron Dennis, who did no wrong according to some...
