Re: Could Lewis Hamilton Retire at 33?

Although he doesn't say it I believe Lewis would love to have a go at Michaels records.
I think he will keep driving if he sees this as a possibility but if he winds up in an uncompetitive situation he could lose interest.

Re: 2015 Mexico Grand Prix Race thread

It depends on how much faster you are. If you take more out of your tyres to build a gap, you are taking more risk of a mistake and if there is a safety car, you have wasted your time. Hamilton had his chance after the safety car and Rosberg just opened up a gap to keep him out of DRS range. If he ...

Niki comes out of retirement again & wins all the remaining races leaving Nico & Seb to fight over the lower podium places & the championship.

If Nigel reckons he would be as fast as Lewis in that car, no reason Niki wouldn't.
