Lewis Hamilton has responded to Sebastian Vettel's jibe about 'two buses' leading in Monaco by claiming that the German doesn't know when he's got it good.

Vettel was in a midfield car for ONE year in F1.

I think what Hamilton might be trying to get at is that he himself had a winning car for a few years but then had a bad car (2009), and kind of now has a bad car.

Whereas since Vettel was given a winning car, he hasn't really had to deal with a bad car. We saw a race or two last year where Vettel was spitting the dummy because his car wasn't fast enough but we haven't seen him lose a championship.

I believe losing will make Vettel a better driver in the future. It's just a matter of when it will happen.

You drove a top car in your rookie year, courtesy of Ron Dennis. Now you finally know how all the other drivers who have had to drive years in midfield cars feel.

4th in the standings in a midfield car in his first season at this team and is leading currently the quickest driver in F1 and the man who saw off the great Schumi over 3 years. And please remember that there was a double world champion driving onee of those top cars courtesy of Ron Dennis also and we all no what happened dont we.

In my eyes you had it easier than anyone in the history of F1, including your championship, thanks to Glock. Massa lost that championship out of sheer bad luck. If diamonds never made a lady yours won't make you a gentleman either. So Mr. Hamilton, just shut up and drive and use a bit of brains under safety car pit stops, that will do you good.

@Taipan, Lewis dad did work three jobs to get Lewis through his career, and yes McLaren did fund his program and he won a title for them. Still better than a certain Scot who had the best car for a period of 10 years and did nothing, actually every British driver since Jackie Steward in 1973, could only manage one title each, Nigel Mansell had the best car for around 15 years but only one title.

This is the first year I am watching comments, and I am amazed at what is being said. So much aggression between drivers. Both Lewis and Alonso seem to spend a lot of their time gunning for Vettel, he doesn't do the same. I think that they should rather fight it out on the race track.

@Mimi, if Massa was that good why can he repeat that form again? Lewis lost the title on the last day in Brazil 07 and came back and wins it in Brazil 08.

This time I think he's dead right actually. Bit unnecessary to complain about others being slow when you've had the best car to play with for four years. It's a bit like if Hamilton would complain about other drivers not having had the support of a major team as they rose through the junior ranks.

What a joke. Hand raised by McLaren, placed in a competitive car on day one, no test driver period, no lesser team time, just treated like a golden child from day one.... and Vettel has it easy? I used to like Hamilton. His race performance was once worth watching. Now he's just a Diva marketing clown that has lost sight of the fact that he is slipping to the second tier as a driver and comes off like a spoiled brat with this type of comment. While he shepherds his mutt around, and plays kissy face with his girl and the press, Vettel is busting his tail to stay on top.
