Hamilton is the luckiest F1 driver of all time! Not only did he suffer not a SINGLE technical failure since he entered F1, no his opponents eliminate themselves, even if Lewis makes 2 mistakes in a race he wins it, because they are just too weak.

The only guy who is good and tough enough to beat him is Fernando, but he´s in a bad car.

Senna or Michael would destroy the 2008 Lewis Hamilton.

hhahahahahahahahaha, yeah right, how old are you, 87? When everything smelled better, and it rain less, come on dude

First of all we don't know what the investigation is about. One assumes it was the incident between Kimi and Lewis at the chicane. First of all, Lewis was ahead at the chicane and he got pushed wide. He definitely was in the lead coming out of the chicane, we immediately radioed him to let Kimi past. We let Kimi past and then overtook him again before the line.

Inevitably, we wanted to know whether we had actually, that was deemed to be a correction of that, and we checked with Charlie [Whiting, Race Director], of course Charlie can only give an opinion, he's not the stewards, but he gave an opinion that we had complied properly to the regulations. I would even dispute that there was any fault because we had the corner in the chicane, but even if we didn't have the corner we let Kimi back in the lead."

Let me stop you there and cast your mind back to around 5.30pm on 21st October 2007. Hamilton, still on course for the title, has a gearbox problem and coasts down to 18th before fighting back to 7th. Seems like a technical problem to me.

that wasent necessarily a gearbox problem, people were speculating that was because of the lock up when he was behind alonso.

Yes locking a brake causes your engine to cut out.
How come (almost) everyone locks brakes every race and their engine/gearbox doesn't cut out?

So you say that Lewis is the best driver ever?

edit: to joostlamers

on other topic: i remember an incident with alonso in the past with letting someone pass, and immediately pass again. He got a penalty for that if i remember right.

Suzuka 05. That was more cock up on the stewards part I believe as he let the guy past, overtook him again but the FIA said let him past again, Alonso did so but the FIA then said he didn't need to.

Anyone notice Hamilton's impression of Lee of the UK series of The Apprentice? Noticeably without the swears of course.

that was because what happened there was an exception and we do not see those every time.

That makes no sense and you are clutching at straws.
