Wonder what would happen if Hamilton wasn't driving one of the best cars. Would be interesting to see him really having to fight for a place.........

It would be even more interesting to see what Alonso would do in a weaker car seeing as he done so well in a superior car today, by the way i still think Alonso is top class

I'm sooo pleased he won it without Alonso having even a sniff at the podium.
Now get this, somewhere last week some old fool known as Jacques Villeneuve was speaking some nonsense concerning Lewis. How very apt it is for Lewis to win such a race in such a manner on the track named after the whining man's father!!! Makes the victory even sweeter. He won the race fairly, cleanly sweetly, almost like he was the only one on the track!!!
Thank God Kubica I understand suffered only a broken leg.
Viva Lewis!!

Great win today in Canada.

Hopefully the pressure won't get to him and he continues to impress.

Well done Lewis. Alonso is rattled. He had to push too hard in practice and made a mistake. And in the race he did the same again. Lewis has the measure of him and more.

Maybe they should rethink the track at Montreal with all those walls. Bit of a death trap as well as being irritating with all the yellow flags and stoppages.
The safety car probably won more laps than Hamilton. Bad luck, too, for Alonso who lost any chance he had on the first safety.
Is there any chance of a rule change that would make it fairer? As it is it's seems pot luck as to whether you get an advantage or get stymied.

He's regularly outpaced a double world champion in his first six races in F1. He's driven a faultless race today when that double world champion in the same car simply couldn't do it.

Hamilton's potential is frightening. If he's this good in his first few races, how good will he be in a year or two?

Well done Lewis! great race and very very composed

On another note what are ITV doing? there coverage was appauling. Commentators did not know the new rules of the safety car and they cut to a break just as they are revealing Kubica's injuries

Firstly many congratulations to Lewis Hamilton he drove really well today.

As an alonso fan i have to say he had a total nightmare though if he hadnt got that pit stop penalty he probably would have been much higher up but fact is he did. Still we are yet to see hamilton have a total nightmare yet/have him suffer bad luck so we cant go too overboard. Interesting to note that three drivers who were or are potential w/c's, alonso, kimi and kubica are having a bit of a torrid season so far.

Thank god Kubica is ok though, they build those cars strong these days :)

yeah alonso is top class as is lewis hamilton he makes brits proud he deserves it but im curious to know what was wrong with alonso car coz its unusual he does so many mistakes its a shame coz he was maybe even faster than lewis !!!! but lewis showed again how brilliant he can be

F1 has been a bit turgid for the last 7 years and i've been a fan for years, something needs to be bought in to make it competative again and also a few characters would make it a bit more fiesty

hamilton won well but there seems to be no sport in F1 today

"Wonder what would happen if Hamilton wasn't driving one of the best cars. Would be interesting to see him really having to fight for a place........."

Kind of a ludicrous hypothetical argument.

The same could be said for Alonso or any of the top runners. Remember Alonso in the Minardi in 2001? I bet he wishes he could have that year wiped from his memory.

Motor sport at the true world-class level, whether F1, the old G5 and G6 championships or whatever, have always relied on an optimal combination of man, machine and setup, unlike ChampCar, F3000 or GP2 where it's much more about the driver and setup and the technology is commodotised.

If you want to know how Hamilton drives when he has the same machinery as everyone else, look back in his career. Oh look, it seems he wins there as well.

I was hoping Hamilton wins today, and he has but for his main rivals to have a poor race and keep him firmly on top of the drivers championship is unbelievable, well done Lewis, well done.

Ballerion,

Could you say exactly what it would take for you to find F1 interesting?

If you found todays race light of incident: what do you need?

Plasma,

To be fair: that decision is not in the hands of the commentators, but rests with the director of the show. The only thing in his/her mind is the money.

What I'd like to know is what one would have to pay to get the entire race, commercial free.

How much would it cost?

I think Sky and all the commercial television companies are just killing sport. They created all these channels, and digital means of scooping up the sports, we pay them a ton of money for the subscription, then they plaster the thing with adverts.

Murdoch has to go for a midnight swim!

Great race and a great win.

I think that Formula one would benifit from more races like canada where track conditions really test drivers and dont just give them a easy ride.

As for LH, well drove and a deserved victory maybe this kid one day could be a great. But its to early to say yet and i think the way ITV pile the pressure on him it leads to stupid storys like, Hamilton better then schumacher etc.

The boys good but its to early to say hes that good, oh and comparing him to senna is a bit harsh on the lad

brendon fella

over the past 7 seasons their could maybe a dozen races which has thrown up a flash of excitement, and admittedly today there was a smidge of racing. lets get beack to a huge engine stuck to a chassis and get the drivers hanging on for grim death - technology is ruining this once great sport

Created by Mr and Mrs Hamilton.

Extensively cared for and modified by Ron Dennis.

Powered by Mc'Claren Mercedes.

Driven and controlled by Lewis Hamilton, without doubt a future F1 World Champion.

Tremendous drive in a very difficult race. Heidfeld and the BMW was quick, but not quick enough to catch Lewis. He could have lost concentration with the amount of safety car deployments, tyre temperature changes affecting the car's balance, engine temperature to keep an eye on etc etc, but did he ? Not in the slightest. A 22 F1 rookie with the racing ability and technical know how in the same class as Nigel Mansell, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher and many more F1 greats. WELL DONE LEWIS HAMILTON

BRAPPPPP
AVITTTTTTTTTT LEWIS
HOPE TO HEAR THAT NATIONAL ANTHEM SO OFTEN THAT WHEN YOU EVENTUALLY GET USED TO HEARING IT SO MUCH U WILL START SINGING ALONG ;) FABULOUS DRIVER
NOT FAZED BY ANYONE OR ANYTHING
JUST GLAD THAT NO ONE DIED IN THAT RACE OR IT WOULD HAVE BEEN QUITE DISASTROUS FOR HAMILTON TO HAVE WON THEN OR ANY DRIVER FOR THAT MATTER!!
LEWIS HAS TO WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP NOW AND SHOW SNOBBY ALONSO DAT HE CAN'T HAVE EVRYTING HIS OWN WAY
ALONSO THOUGHT HE WAS A TOPMAN AFTER WINNING 2 CHAMPIONSHIPS..NO CHANCEEE
DER'S A NEW 'ROOKIE' ON DA BLOCKS YEAAA RULE BRITTANIA


WOULD BE IRONIC IF HAMILTON KEPT ON WINNING AND ALONSO THEN GOING TO ANOTHER TEAM LIKE FERRARI AND KIMI MOVING TO MCLAREN!!!!!
THAT WOULD BE BRILLIANT


BUT BIG UP LEWIS.. FAIR AND SQUARE

Superb win for Lewis Hamilton and for Maclaren.I feel that this is due, notwithstanding Lewis's undoubted ability, to Ron Dennis's abilty to engender a relationship with the driver which builds such loyalty between them (thinking here of Mika Hakkinen. I feel that same relationship between Ron and Lewis. Well done

We need to look to the bbc for all the degredation that is happening in televised sport.They refuse to put decent bids in,and to compete with the sat tv stations,this is paramount.
What do we pay our license fee for,i myself refuse to jump on the sky bandwagon,due to mainly the amount of advertising they throw at you.
The bbc have lost the plot here,there should be a reduction in tv license cost,not an increase,its outrageous keep paying more for less,i rest my case.

That race was absolutely fantastic. Right from Alonso going wide on the first corner to him getting over taken by Sato (best underdog moment ever!). I must recommend having the live timing on the old laptop though. It brings the whole race to life because TV coverage will never be able to do the sport true justice.

This is from an old lady who thinks that if anyone (young or not) wants to pursue their dream/ambition, let them do it. I am thankful that no one was seriously hurt. I wish LH had been free to race as he would have wished but in life we all have to deal with what is handed out. He did so deal. Enjoy, pleae!

Am I the only one who thought that Mclaren didn't seem to be over the moon with Lewis's victory. Firstly they congratulated him by saying "you won that fair and square" of course he did, what relevance does that statement have? Then Ron Dennis talked about the safety car ruining Alonso's race but who really gives a monkeys'?

i fear that Alonso will take some shoving to be pushed off the top spot at Mclaren and lewis might not get all the support he deserves in the mean time.

lets hope they realise sooner rather than later how special a talent he is and add a further clunk to Alonso's battered ego.
