But..Well done. Great win for Lewis, well deserved. Credit where credit is deserved!!

Shame about Kimi (My Fav) but what a fantastic race.

Great for Kubica. Sooooo sad for Sutil.

Still think DC could have won if he had stayed in......:)

Roll on the next race.

I believe Massa will take this season. He's in far better shape than Raikkonen and I don't believe McLaren will bounce back for good. Hamilton seems to make the difference but he can't be lucky all the time. And... BMW doesn't have the car to match the top (Hamilton, Raikkonen and Massa).

All drivers have their good and bad luck - you can use either to credit them or put them down. All F1 drivers are exceptionally talented - only if they all drove identical cars could you honestly make comparisons. There are five drivers who could realistically win this years championship and all would deserve it if they got there. Massa, Hamilton and Kubica for me are the ones on a mission and if they all drove whichever is the fastest car I don't think anyone could predict the outcome. I just find it sad that so many people are leaving negative comments because of their biased opinions rather than praise, and as for 'luck', a good driver makes his own.

'Everybdy hates Hamilton and McLaren'.Who is everybody?Does the world revolve around Ferrari and the tifosi??That's rather delusional.I live in Italy and can assure you that he has won over a big following of fans.He really doesn't need Ferrari fan approval to be great.It's pure and simple,he is a great driver and he proves it on the track.There are millions of Hamilton supporters out there.He will not need your support.

You must be kidding! Lewis made a mistake and yet u say it is a great win? I would like to make more mistake!

and with all your obvious abundant knowledge vin5085, let us in on a secret how many mistakes have you made, and in which Grand Prix?

What made the win great was the very fact that he made a mistake,recovered and eventually went on to win ahead of the Ferraris.What made it great was his reaction.A lesser driver would have crumbled in the face of such a challenge.

Well, NikosBog (NikosBog?), here's one who detests Ferrari, Schumacher, Raikonnen, Massa, and the lot of them. Just to put the record straight that we are not all enchanted with Ferrari.

It's amusing to be labelled with being a Sun/News of the world reading, sheep follower in querying if Lewis Hamilton is the best driver in F1 at the moment.

10 years ago when I was working at Williams Damon Hill had just won the world championship. A great season and I was one of Hill's greatest fans but my honest opinion is Hamilton is a better driver.

I also honestly think he is starting to nudge ahead of his contemporaries, looking at this ability to learn/rebound his mistakes and his never say die attitude.

This is not jingoism; I thought Schumacher was the best driver in the world for several years and Alonso as he won 2 championships. I think Kimi was the best last season overall for the way he fought back at the end of the season. At the moment I think Hamilton and it will be interesting to see how the rest of the season pans out.

interesting post from a former "insider" spusand....

do you think that LH's style, being hard on his tyres through his cornering method, will be more of a help or a hinderance? do you think he needs to calm it, or do you think his team need to work with him to bring the car into line with his style.

i remember seeing some data from senna's throttle pedal some years ago. while most drivers kept a fairly even or progressive pressure on their pedals senna was constantly tapping and releasing his pedal through corners. imho this was one of many things that squeezed the extra ounce of performance from his car. i can't help thinking that LH's style, while not identical by any means, serves the same purpose of keeping the car on the edge for longer than his rivals. ofc its premature to make a direct comparison with senna, but i can't help feeling that the day will come.
