"Hamilton himself could have lapped Peres if he had 2 to 3 more laps and Button if he had 4 to 5 more laps. How sad"

The only thing sad is your mathematical skills!

At the end of the race, Hamilton was 36.07 seconds ahead of Button which equates to 0.621 seconds per lap over the course of the race.

Assuming Hamilton could keep this rate up and considering Hamilton's fastest lap was 1.29.759, it would take another 145 laps before he lapped Button.

Hamilton supporters - not too bright!

Ummm...so it appears my maths skill aren't the greatest either! haha.

145 laps in TOTAL to lap Button.

87 MORE than full race distance.

My bad. Still, far cry from 4 to 5 more laps though isn't it?

"Realictic" and "Whitmarsh" in the same sentence. Uhmmm! That must be a rare find.

looks like you are trying really hard to convince yourself. getting lost in your own reasoning and not being able, at the end, to come up with anything good. Keep it up Mr. brighter

'Mr Whitmarsh fully expects to bounce back. ..but the team must be realistic in its expectations'
I may of missed something here, much like Richard's last post (the penny did eventually drop) but isn't the above statement contradicting itself. ..or was the editor having a laugh at McLaren's expense.
