Re: Is Hamilton now rising to be the best of his generation?

When/if Mercedes sign Max in 2019 is when I think that Lewis will be knocked off his pedestal. I doubt it. Lewis has enjoyed a major incumbency advantage in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2017. Of all the drivers, Kovalainen probably did the best arriving at Hamilton's team. It would take something very spec...

He's matched Vettel in WDCs, now it's all about who wins that 5th one first. You'd have to place your bets on Lewis winning 2018 too.

Hamilton will obliterate Ricciardo if they were teammate. He is failing to outpace his less experienced teammate and you expect him to do bett...

It's far from rubbish actually.

Having said that, Hamilton was a phenom SINCE his karting day...

No way. He's VERY talented, but as good as he is, Hamilton was even better at his age and Hamilton today is an improved version of himself then. Hamilton wasn't even in F1 on his 20th birthday. At that age, he just completed his first season in Formula 3 where he finished 5th in the standings. Vers...
