Don't forget, right before the midway point of the season the team began using his setup on Button's car. If they did not do that Button would have been further down in the standings.

Had it been the other way around everybody would have remembered that fact.

But now no one want to give credit where it's due. Even Button raced for keeps against Hamilton even though Lewis was helping setup his car.

I'm not by any stretch of the imagination a Hamilton fan, but he drove a near flawless year. His WDC result was more a reflection of an unreliable car and team. Without all the problems Hamilton had, I suspect Vettel would have had a hard time taking that 3rd title.

The brightest comment you said all year and you did without offending anybody in the process, came when in your own words you said nothing.

try to keep it that way more often, ..silence can be golden...

For those saying 'he should have won but his car let him down' etc, it seems to me like that is a characteristic that McLarens sometimes have.

Look at the 2005 McLaren, blistering pace but ultimately Kimi lost because the Renault was more reliable.

Classic Tortoise vs the hare. Shoulda, woulda, coulda won, but didn't.

Just look at that cool dude in the picture, this is the face of Mercedes 2013 and will tear up North America with his natural marketability something the great Schumi was unable to do. With wonderboy on board the only way is up for the Mercs team.

Enrico, You've been quite good at not annoying me recently, but if you revert back to your old ways I'll bite back and you don't like that. Don't provoke if you can't take the outcome buddy.
And unsurprisingly you completely missed the point of my previous post, which was a reply to RonsGoldenTroll, talk of the devil there he is again, yup RGB it's all going to be about marketing and brand expansion for Lulu now, strange priority for a racing driver...

How's your hamster?
