isnt it nice to see that lulu is actually talking up seb? but there is something that he should remember...all the reputable websites and pundits, say that macca had the fastest car this year. so lulu in the fastest car, could not beat seb in the second fastest car? i wonder how that happened?

@ Richard Do you not watch the races??

It happened because of 3 times retiring through no fault of his own whilst leading... Multiple grid penalties and being taken out of races by other drivers.
Look at Austen for example when there were no car issues, The fastest car driver combination hunted down Vettel and overtook him for the win.

Maybe he should aim his mindgames towards Saubers Hulkenberg and ForceIndias Sutil as these will be, along with his teammate, his main competitors next year.

Vettel, Alonso, Button and Raikkonen will be the big 4 for the title in 2013 while i fear Hamilton will be part of the imfamous crash happy big 4 in the midfield of death together with Maldonado, Grosjean and Sutil.

All the Hamilton fans should gather round.

Hamilton is not the great racing God you all assume he is! When will you accept that there are better drivers out there. I don't like Vettel but you can not look past the fact that he is a serious talent.

I'm sick of all these ridiculous Hamilton fanboys discrediting every driver that beats Hamilton ie Vettel, Button, Alonso, Massa etc...

Maybe you should give credit where credit is due!

@ Liam48 I do not think he is a great racing god, but i do think he is a bloody quick talented driver at least Vettels equal.

I am just a fan of F1 not individual drivers

I personally do not discredit every driver that beats him and never have, But I do think he is a greater talent than Button.

@Richard, why must you always have something negative to say about Lewis even when it is not called for.

Lewis started and finished 15 races, while Seb started and finished 19
Lewis 7 poles, while seb had 6 poles.

Which means that their respective cars were not that far much apart with regards to speed.

When you take into consideration that Lewis was leading in 3 of the 5 DNF that he suffered, you cannot reasonable argue that Seb won because he was a better driver than Lewis. A more objective person would say that Seb won because he had more good fortune than Lewis had in 2012.

I still see Lewis getting about 3 podiums and even 1 win.

But in 2009 Mclaren had started with a not so good car. And by the halfway point it became one of the best cars but it was too late for the championship by then.

I'm actually going to miss Lewis Hamilton on McLaren's "Tooned" cartoons.

rb27 seb also had dnfs was taken out by another, was penalised to back of grid, was shunted to back with a damaged car etc. yet still managed to win the wdc in the second best car.

tica. your maths is lousy. seb may have started 19 races, but so did lulu! seb finished 17 (not 19) due to alternator failures. but your comment about poles, just proves that the macca was the fastest car, yet seb still won the wdc.

and of course i will comment on lulu. look at the heading of the thread.

finally, maybe seb had good fortune, his drives at abu and brazil, show that he is a good driver, probably better than lulu. he THINKS more! that is the main difference.
