@ no grip Button, its strange that most say when the car is spot on Jenson performs which is sort of true, but he still cant get close to Lewis, real strange. Is Lewis really that good?

Question: "Is Lewis really that good?"
Answer: He's the best.

If it rains on Sunday, it could make for an interesting race. Hamilton, Vettel and Alonso are all very good drivers in the rain. I think Hamilton will take the race and Vettel the title.

I'll never forget Silverstone 2008, Hamilton made everyone else look second-rate that day, especially after all the criticism that had gone against him in the previous races.

@ no grip button......get over yourself kid! LH is super talented, as is JB. JB thrives on a pin sharp car that is right under him, changeable conditions and tyre management and is a renowned racer, Hamilton is undoubtedly the quicker consistantly as his approach is aggresive in contrast to JB's smoother style, when his head isn't fried with C$ap he also thrives and shines, unfortunately this affects his form somewhat. I know, I watched live at Spa this year where JB trounced Lewis who he needed to take his head for a C4ap! Think the gap was about 8/10ths if I recall!

He's quite good, certainly one of the five or six best at present. (And after all, there are several current and former world champions driving at present)

But I've never seen any justification for the OTT claims that he is "the best". Some people go further than this and state that he is not merely the best of the current drivers, but the best of all time.

of course Rosberg is a better driver than Button. Anyone with any vision and sense can see the two drivers and how they approach racing, Mercedes have had a terrible couple of years, occasionally breaking out. Button's performance this year suggests he might have a shot at 3rd place next year if everything stays even, but you can bet your bottom line that Lewis does not put emotional stock in the bs artists in f1, he wont waste any more time and emotion on the stupid aspects of f1, and he will be banking when Mercedes figure out how to make the tires work.

I don't think out-qualifying Alonso in 2007 makes Hamilton "the best". Alonso is a very good driver in many respects, but he's always been mediocre in qualifying. He's even admitted as much himself. Give him the best car (and a slow teammate) and he'll put it on pole about a third of the time. See his WDC winning years for example.

always makes me laugh when people disagree with FACTS! Points are won on Sundays and in last years championship, the guy who regularly outqualified JB finished way in his wake in the championship if I recall....no doubt some will disagree that too!
