Re: Hamilton vs Schumacher and their contemporaries (split from Official Hamilton Thread)

You need to read some of the books I'm afraid. I've heard a lot of anecdotes as well, but books like the "edge of greatness" give a bit more details. For example, stark contrast to the "I love you guys, we are so blessed" routine, Schumacher would know the people in the factory by first name and ro...

The Russel incident was unfortunate for both, but what we he doing being passes by a Williams anyway? Yes the chasm in quality and skill between Bottas and Hamilton was simply ...

. Due to the recovery, Hamilton. What did Max do that was equivalent ? For the last few years Hamilton has often been denied votes in the "driver of the day" threads because he basically just led from start to finish - but now that Max does that he gets loads of votes. Hilarious. . . Aight man. :lol:

^ Didn't someone earlier liken this to Canada 2011? On that day Vettel did not put a foot wrong until the very final lap. Button, by contrast, had a first half to forget.

I don't really understand the votes or considerations for Hamilton.

I can accept he was in a ...

Imagine that he had agreed to play second-fiddle to Alonso that year. Even a repeat of Moss-Fangio would have lead to an epic fallout regardless.

Verstappen defending, I can't remember many examples if I'm honest I'll be very impressed if Verstappen can drive off into the distance in the wet. I expect Hamilton to be sat on his gearbox for most of the race. If the quali is wet, I expect Hamilton to be ahead and Max not being able to catch up.

So we've established that both Schumacher and Hamilton lost to teammates in specific years due to explainable circumstances. In all cases, they beat the same teammates over other seasons.
Not sure they are exactly the same, but sure.
