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

What? Michael entered 10 races in 1999. In those 10 races, Irvine out scored him. The missed races are removed. I think you'll find that he wasn't included for Silverstone. Even in F1's website: https://www.formula1.com/en/results.html/1999/races/694/great-britain/race-result.html He was not offici...

It amazes me the amount of people who think he's not going to be competitive straight away. He hasn't spent the last year sat around just playing PlayStation and eating crisps In 2019 he scored double the points of any other rider he'll be racing against on Sunday. The results whilst he's been away...

I'm legit confused about how people could be confused about Verstappen having a very solid argument for being the best qualifier on the grid. InB4 he claims more pole positions this season than Hamilton has managed in any of his F1 seasons (granted -- he'll have 23 races to do it). Get used to Vers...

With much larger rims, has there been any rule change to specify brake rotor size, etc.? I can't imagine 7G braking performance with these 18" wheels. I believe there's al...

That's the difference between LH and MV. Lewis made one mistake, going wide, and then gathered it all up and race perfectly for the remainder of the race, despite the pressure. Max's driving went all over the place in the closing laps.

Yep. Was announced its only being policed in practice/qualifying.
It's pathetic. This is a sport that can DQ a car for having a piece of bodywork 1mm too big, but teams can gain significantly more of a time advantage by not sticking to the circuit.
