Re: Relief I thought Hamilton had lost his Speed.

I agree the team made a lot of mistakes last year, at least Whitmarsh admitted blame about it. But Lewis didnt. He just packed up and left. This despite the team sticking their neck out for him during his low point and numerous mistakes in 2010-2011. The same team that nurtured him from the beginni...

Re: Lewis Hamilton Dislikes These Tires Too

The tyres are Sh+t we hear the race engineers giving the drivers delta times in the races instead of telling them to push. The laptimes are about 2 sec slower than it would be possible. We don't see the cars driven on their limit, and racing is called off for the sake of the tyres. It more about cru...

Mistakes? At Valencia Hamilton went into the weekend leading in the points. But during the race he made the mistake of racing someone who was definitely in the WDC picture, and suffered a DNF.

From what I have observed on Hamilton is that he sometimes loses focus, and allows himself to be distracted. If you follow Vettel closely, there is just one thing on his mind, racing and winning. He avoids the news and net, doesn't post on Twitter, his actions, thoughts, and focus are centered arou...
