I'm sure Mercedes are quite capable of making improvements and have already acknowledged that they need to improve reliability, Better I think for Hamilton to keep quiet, he has'nt won the championship yet nor has he outgunned Rosburg to the degree he makes out. The likelyhood is that it will go down to the wire, for what it's worth my money is on Rosburg!

Wow, Seems nothing but Hamilton articles have the media's attention. Variety is the spice of life, lets give the other drivers an opportunity for their opinion on whatever. As much as I like Lewis this is getting a bit much. I said as much yesterday.

the only thing keeping Hamilton from out gunning his teammate are Rosberg running off the circuit to gain an advantage and Lewis Hamilton's car breaking down.

One thing is sure, the reliability issues from Merc are making them look worse than Pirelli's 2013 tire selection. Hopefully Merc figure out how to manage the temperatures on their "braking systems".

But you have to admit, Merc's issues are about as useful as fan controlled sprinkler systems, so far as trying to keep the season alive.

With all due respect, both fan boys and anti fan boys as you so eloquently put it have a right to their opinion. It's the amount of Hamilton stories I was referring to.
I must disagree with your reference to Crash being a "British site." Whether I'm in the U.S or Australia if I Google F1 then Crash comes up on the 1st page and notwithstanding this medium being the World Wide Web then by logic where the domain originates shouldn't really come into contention as anyone can access the info no matter where they are in the world. No disrespect intended. Regards

salan. it is all part of the media hype generated by his publicity managers XIX! they want his name in the news every day. what is the old mantra? "there is no such thing as bad publicity". these media moguls contact the various news sites with the quotes! the websites just repeat them. other drivers do not take this attitude and tend to keep their gobs shut. but not our lulu!

Spark plug in Australia, or fuel leak and fire are technical problems non related with driver, but is interesting that Lewis has allways more problems with his car then his team mates. That is related with his hard racing stile.
Lewis loves that PR bullsh. and that makes him distracted and non consistent in his mood swings. He is excellent driver, but poor mental stability. That cost him before and still does. He is fast in one lap, but racing is something different, requires much longer concetration and lap consistency.Lewis had magnifficent races, but only when he was in good mood, and we se how that does not last long, because he is not self critical and in many cases seeks the explanations for his own mistakes.

Is this article based on what he said in the podium interview, press interview or in the bear pit afterwards? It was certainly one of those as any replay would show.

More hot news.... Abraham Lincoln assassinated and Magna Carta gets King's signature.
