You mean the Three Stooges. First they said, nobody wants Lewis then we found out that Macca offered him more money than Merc and Redbull would have signed him if not for their loyalty to Webber. Then they said he went to Merc for the money but see above. Then they said that he would be lucky to fight with the midfield this year. He is actually 4th in the WDC at the moment with one podium.

Lewis has actually been honest, truthful, and modest about his move to Merc and all the expectations that came with it. He is proving his critics wrong when they said that Merc would be at the back of the field this year. Jenson said that Lewis made a bad decision while Whitmarsh said that Lewis will be regretting his decision as the season gets in the way. Both were way off and way wrong. Merc is ahead of Macca and Lewis is ahead of both Jenson and Sergio in the standings. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Then he showed humility today by acknowledging in public that Rosberg deserved the podium. P

Lewis has proven that he is a true racer and is actually gutted to have been gifted the podium by his team and faster teammate.

It seems that Lewis has matured since 2007 while the Three Stooges of Crash have not.

Just t be clear you lot, Vettel has always been and will always be, an arrogant, self interested, unlikeable person who cares little for anything or anyone else, than winning.
You need some of that to drive F1, unfortunately he is full of nothing else

Helmut would never allow a competitive driver to be in the same team as his love child vettel, end of... Webber is there to back vettel nothing more. It's just a shame one of the greats of the sport Adrian Newey is a party to it.. Horner had little credibility before so doesn't matter but I see this as severely hurting Neweys reputation. Cannot see Newey designing another car for Vettel ever..
