F1 » Hamilton hits back in FP2


Forza, the idea behind practice is to try different set-ups for the suspension, aerodynamics, powertrain and tires so it can be determined how to best ready the car for qualifying. The idea is NOT to be racing the clock and trying to set the fastest times possible. That is why you will often see more responsible racers like Vettel, Alonso and Rosberg further down the time sheet because they are TESTING their cars, not racing the clock.

F1 » Hamilton hits back in FP2


Woopt-te-doo... Hamilon was racing the clock again. He's done this every practice session since becoming a "superstar." When he drove for McLaren in his rookie season he did proper set-up work in the practice sessions. Then in 2008 he was gifted the World Driver's Championship and then all things changed. In his mind he became bigger than McLaren. It has been all about his ego ever since. Driving like the race is on during practice in order to top the times and thus garner the attention of the media has been his biggest claim to fame in recent years. If he would do proper set-up work instead, then maybe he would be averaging better than 5th in the driver's standings over the last several years. Lets not forget he has always had a top ride as well.

F1 » Wolff: Hamilton ‘a driving genius’


As Sasha pointed out, Hamilton pushed his car too hard and it broke in Canada. With an identical car and the same malfunction, Nico was able to work through the same problem by adjusting the brake balance, changing the shift points and slowing down enough to bring the car home with 18 points. Sounds like to me that Nico is more of a "genius driver" than Lulu. But Toto is a businessman and he must prove to the board at Mercedes that Lulu is truly worth double the pay that they are giving Nico.
