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

It's a fact that Hamilton has beaten a better cast of characters within his own team (Alonso, Button, Rosberg) and a better driver than Mika (Vettel), the best rival the grid had to offer Schumacher during his best years, in another team. I truly hate to sound like myattitude but Barrichello was cl...

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

The notion that Hamilton is mentally weak is one of the most absurd currently being pedalled in all of sport on the internet right now - lol. Acting out? Sure. Sometimes volatile? Yes. Mentally weak? No. Mentally less strong than Schumacher? Maybe. But then again maybe not. Mental strength manifest...

Re: Official Sebastian Vettel thread

I hardly doubt he'd offer more than Alonso based on his now sustained period of mediocre form. How bad would Alonso have to be exactly to be as underwhelming as Vettel has been in the last couple of seasons... Pretty damn bad by his standards. Is Alonso gonna be "shot" at 40?
