Re: Hamilton signs for Mercedes

You missed the opportunity to go with the thread title: "Hamilton resigns...." and then start the first paragraph with "...with Mercedes" Curious that it's only a 1 year deal - I guess this is to see what the state of play is going into the new regulations. Technically against our guidelines for no...

Maybe we should take this conversation to another thread, not the official thread of a driver?

Don't want to sound like a party pooper, but I think it would be wiser.

Re: The Official Sir Lewis Hamilton thread

The recent discussion had drifted off topic, to be a more specific topic comparing Hamilton to Schumacher and their teammates / contemparies - which warrants its own thread, to keep this one as a more general Hamilton specific news thread.

Re: Rank the Drivers, December 2020

I will work on an update to allow revoting in the future, but to be honest - with more than 20 people voting, it won't make that much difference, especially as I assume that your season performance isn't the exact opposite of your current performance ratings.

I'd be careful about claiming it was "without consent" if you look at the unblurred version of the video it looks consensual.
I never said it was without consent, I said it APPEARED to be without consent based on the fact she pushes his hands away.
