Well done Hamilton. Good start, keep working with the engineers as the car will get better. Well done NBC Sports as the new TV coverage for America. F1 is the best sport in the world.

Westy i watched the race live on Sky and Lewis was dropping Nico like he was doing to Button in Brazil before Hulks took him out, In normal race conditions Lewis will do to Nico like he has done to world champions in the same vehicle.

I think Nico will give Lewis a stiff test this season but i think that Lewis's natural speed will be to much for Nico.

Good to see Lewis happy and in a reasonably competitive car. I did wonder if it was the right decision to join merc. My biggest worry for both Lewis and Jenson is that their teams don't seem to have developed over the last few seasons.merc always start well and disappear into the midfield by the summer.mclaren continue to start on the back foot and play catch up all season.fingers crossed they both improve through 2013 and beyond.

No need to be bewildered. .Lewis smoked his tyres defending from Fernando. .hence his lack of pace and the subsequent third stop, reference Mr Brawn ...the good news is Mercedes are on it and on red bull's tail :)
Like many others have said here, Mercedes have to keep up with development. .like Mr Wolff said. ..'failure isn't an option'..the eyes of the world are upon the greatest car manufacturer in the world. .I'm only back watching the sport coz of Lewis :)
