Jim i got your number 118 118 !
You always flap when i start commenting on your posts! So what should lewis do be like Jenson and wait for Alonso to crash i mean HOPE! That's racing defending as hard as you can because he actually wants to get a result not be like Jenson and be happy with 1 point. However thats why you cant compute because you are used to losing!!!! like this conversation AGAIN!!!!

We go back to the old question here, if Button is so bad and Lulu is so great why did Lulu not completely thrash Button during 3 years together at McLaren? The only answer can be one of them is a lot better than you think and the other is far worse than you think.

No grip was just useless in the race, such a average driver and his lack of setup skills showed with a car apparently designed around him. He needs to retire this year along with mark donut webber , i mean how many times have we seen this guy **** up his starts?
Both of these drivers should sign up to the caterham team where they belong !

I noticed last year how well the ferrari starts the race , the traction is immense , they basically make up a position or two in the first 5 seconds. The car is looking good in race trim this year so far but it is early days.

McLaren have gone two steps backwards in comparison this year, in a year which they really should of proved that they did not need hamilton but he needed them and should of stayed. If they don't resolve their problems in the next 5 races they will become another williams. i wonder what is going through perezs head lol

I don't think anyone can deny lewis qualiy skills are excellent he can defo get the most out of any car in on

@newey - how is it you and others are still crowing about Hamilton? Have you no shame?! He starts 3rd and finishes 5th and you're saying he's so much better than Button?

And as for Webber, his problems on the start and during the race were down to a faulty ECU. You need to pay more attention!

jim crint, vettel started on pole and finished third, does that make him crap or worse than button? maybe you should look at your crystal ball along with all the other arm chair specialists who thought lewis would be lapped by his former team during his first race race for merc and tell us when macca will come good this season

@ jim cuont

If you do not think lewis is better the no grip you are deluding yourself, you do not have to be a fanboy to see that .

And regarding webber no it was not a faulty ecu problem , post-race inspection by MES has pointed to an issue in the garage instead, you need to pay more attention son of a gun !

Unlike all you Hamilton groupies, I'm not claiming Button is the greatest racing driver there's ever been. My point is, if Lewis is that good, as good as you claim he is, why did he go backwards in the race? He's one of the fastest drivers in F1 over one lap but there are others who are better 'racing' drivers, including Button. Remember Monza 2011, Hamilton got stuck behind Schumacher for an age and Button comes up shows Lewis how to do it, pulling off the move of the season on Schumacher into Ascari. But I guess you don't remember, because it doesn't your view of things.

If Lewis is as good as you blinkered fanboys believe, why is he not a three time WDC? He threw away a 17 point lead with two races to go in 2007, was trolling around in 6th at one point in Brazil in 2008 and only got 5th place back on the last corner to win by one point, epic stuff but hardly convincing, and he threw away another title in 2010 when he started throwing himself at people.

And @newey...., pole position, and all the other names you use........

- if your mis-pelling in the previous post is supposed to be a play on the 'c' word, that just shows what a low life, infantile piece of crap you are! I have no idea why Hamilton attracts fans like you, he's like some sort of muppet magnet, idiots like you who can't have a disagreement without resorting to personal abuse. Pathetic!

ROJA I wholeheartedly agree! Bruce will be turning in his grave. .had us normal folks made the same mistakes in our chosen professions we'd be down the road by now.

I see Paddy's replacement is a guy who's been their 20yrs. ..much like the way they promote in the metropolitan police. .yes, they are following the once proud Williams down the pan. ..no disrespect for Perez but he's there first pay driver. ..took a gamble my ****, they couldn't loose, not financially not with his sponsorship and his wage wage of 1.5 million....they got him on the cheap. ...While equally good experienced drivers like HK and Truli have to find alternative employment. ..disgraceful!
