Personally i think Lewis should stop waking around behind Alonza and focus on his driving and the settings of the car any great F1 driver does stick to the team check Prost Senna and Shcumacker he have to stop playing a playboy if he want to win another championship i don,t care how good his car his and he is not applying himself i am sorry to say he will be win less again.

I have been known to make the odd barbed comment towards Lulu, mainly for the benefit of his loopy fans but I'm going to be completely honest here.

He is not the driver he once was and ideas that he's the balls out aggressive racer is a memory from 2007 and 2008. This season he's only gained positions 3 times in 17 races!
After the amount of stick he got in 2011 for driving like a nutter he changed his ways and became more considered which was good but he's completely lost his edge in wheel to wheel racing. Currently Vettel, Alonso, Webber, Rosberg, Massa, Kimi, Grojo, Hulk and probably a few others are streets ahead of him when it comes to being aggressive racers.
The way he's going he could end up 6th in the championship driving the second best car!

Taipan, I think that Hamilton's problems started in 2011. From then his driving became erratic and he was doing some mistakes here and there. He responded well in 2012 but his car was so unpredictable and unreliable. He does finish the races on his Mercedes but the car is still unpredictable, especially regarding tyre wear. If my assumption is true about Hamilton and 2011 F1 season, we can relate it to the Pirelli. Maybe this tyres doesn't suit his driving style, so he can't try very hard, he can't be himself anymore. The rookie that matched at everything the great Alonso in 2007, has had many troubles with his team mates since Pirelli re-entered the sport back in 2011.

By Lap 8 hamilton was told to take it easy behind Groj because his left front tyre too hot. Lap 30,the same again but on the right side. I really thought F1 was flat out racing,,not conserving this or conserving that. Also,how on earth did Alonso get away with driving off the track and nearly causing a huge accident,he was a lucky boy today. Oh yes,he drives a Ferrari,,hhahahaha. Pathetic

Tiepin the championship standings show that you are so wrong and also saying that nico is not really that good as lewis is ahead of him and also only 8 points behind kimi for 3rd spot so thanks for your completely honest opinion but again i think i will just go with the facts and also with what his fellow drivers and team bosses think they all rate him and again for a first year in new car great result so far. He is not the best out there but he is in the top level . .

Totally agree with Pakundo. A soon as they started to tell Lewis he couldn't make a pass because his tyre was too hot, I turned it off and watched the grass grow?? I am not a Hamilton fanboy but that was the final insult too far for me, what the hell has happened to F1?? All season we have heard message after message from the pits telling drivers what to do? Pathetic. I have even heard messages telling a driver how fast to take a particular corner. We may as well have radio control cars, what's the point of having a driver in the cockpit??
