I haven't looked back through the archives but I bet the Alsono bashers were in full swing this time last year, preaching doom and gloom, and look where Ferrari ended up. But for two silly accidents Alonso would have won the title and the Ferrari was as bad at the start of last season as the Mclaren is this.

Why would you expect Lewis to do any better in the McLaren? He drove a car yesterday that, on the grid, was 7 places ahead of a crap McLaren driven by Jenson, and ended up finishing four places ahead of the same crap McLaren. How do you explain this Lewis fans? How is it that in your minds Hamilton is this genius yet he starts 3rd and ends up 5th! Bit like last year where he started 1st and ended up 3rd, behind...um Jenson, who won the race. Answers please, but, for the love of god, none of your conspiracy crap!

Yes but Button is no Alonso. Button is just a lucky David Coulthard.

@Angelina - is this the same Alonso who was out-qualified, again, by Massa (another oft derided driver) and only got ahead of his team mate on track thanks to a distinctly dubious decision by Ferrari to pit Alonso four laps earlier than scheduled and keep Massa out on degrading tyres while Alonso closed the gap?

@Angelina - "Button a lucky Coulthard"?

Button came into F1 at the age of 20 and is still racing today, respected by all the team owners, even Briatore now. He wasn't groomed and then shoe horned into the best car on the grid like Hamilton was. 2004 was when he cemented his reputation, taking the fight to the all-conquering Ferraris in a BAR Honda. If you think he's just been 'lucky' you have no idea what you're talking about!

Well, no why wood he be? He hasn't got the natural speed so the teams wouldn't have taken a risk with him. He wasn't shoe horned into the best team....he just lucked into one.

There is no way Jenson could be groomed, he would require skill to have something to groom. In actual fact racing skill wise he requires a Wayne Rooney transplant to have something to groom !!!

@all the Lewis fanboys above - Jenson had two seasons in single seaters and came into F1 a lot less prepared than Lewis. End of! And despite the set-backs and crap cars he still made it to the top. Of course, Lewis is the best driver there's ever been, so going backwards in yesterday's race can't possibly be his fault can it? I mean, he can't have impetuously blown the tyres trying to defend a lost cause against Alonso, when the smart play was to manage them. Nooooo....! The great Lewis never gets it wrong....can't compute, can't compute!!!! He's 28 years old now, and he still makes these stupid ego driven mistakes!!!

FOLLOWED BY and your next thread.

( is this the same Alonso who was out-qualified, again, by Massa (another oft derided driver) and only got ahead of his team mate on track thanks to a distinctly dubious decision by Ferrari to pit Alonso four laps earlier than scheduled and keep Massa out on degrading tyres while Alonso closed the gap?)

Your very own conspiracy theory.
