I don't know about you guys, but for me this is the first season I view Hamilton as an established driver. In the past, for me he's always been the super-rookie and the new kid on the block, but for the first time in his career he seems quite mature and experienced. It's quite refreshing.

No but he is still 'young' in F1 when you consider other driver age and experience in F1. He is achievements can make us feel like that.

I don't know about anyone else, but I think the cars look huge from the onboards this year.

Lewis Hamilton offered "drive for us for life" offer
“Lewis Hamilton’s boss yesterday made him a remarkable “drive for us for life” offer.

“Martin Whitmarsh wants Hamilton to stay with McLaren until the end of his career, which could last for more than a decade. And over that period he would rake in an estimated £350million from his salary alone.”
