and Kimi is still overrated!
@1063 so you are saying Hamilton is wrong to say it was a racing incident then? Because that is what he is saying now.
"And still I rise!"LOLOLOLOL ... to behavioural mediocrity.
@1006I agree entirely. It is very bad for racing to penalise simple errors. Was this an error - to lock up cold tyres, full of fuel? Raikkonen drive very well at that first corner. Had he not made the small correction (thus clouting Lewis) he would possibly have spun as he was locked up. Now, first corner of the race 18 cars at 160+ doesn't bear thinking about
How many cars has Kimi clipped/taken out since last year all in the name of 'my mistake' or 'racing incident'. Smells of a 'Rosberg Monaco etc al'. Had anyone else clipped Hami/Bottas I might have thought differently. These drivers are experts, I'm sure they know how much & what to do to inflict damage, I mean just how many races have these drivers driven in. Hope Mercs wipe the floor with Ferrari
Dumb to say in public what we all know in private more like.
@1059 but he keeps making pr blunder after pr blunder. He really isn't a likeable chap from his public persona.
Vettel is just the best. Truly great drive.That getaway at the start was fantastic. The pass on Bottas was masterclass .This guy is genius
@1053 ~ jean caron"At least he is man enough to admit his mistakes"Good for him.Better to get the apology out quickly and well done to Ms Raikkonen for clarifying her ballet / crying comment.However just like he apologised soon after his "is it cos I is black" joke fell flat - the idiots will keep bringing that back 10 years later as if he hadn't apologised or admit he's made mistakes.
Is it considered a good race now when it's decided from the 1st few laps? Fair play to Hamilton and Vettel, both did what they had to. Please bring back fuel stops, different car weights, stratergies, all ties in with different wear on tyres that see apeverything come together at the race end, cars overtaking as their fuelled light etc etc, F1 overcomes issues doesn't just give up on them.
@70 SeanyB1I have to pick you up Sean, your use of the word NOW. The poisonous Alonso of "Fernando is faster than yow.. sorry mate" infamy has contaminated the mindsets of the fan boys both in and out of the Mainstream Media.Contract signing, Benson and those infantile-fan-boys were looking over the shoulders of all parties involved so know what they're talking about.Oink-flap-flap.
After the race , an interviewer asked to Hamilton if he thought it was possible to score this many points. . Hamilton responded, yes because he had the mentality. Wow , Hamilton wins by mentally, not because he has the best car. Must be the next Yoda
Man-child strikes again.Explanation for storming off was due to him being tired and losing 3 litres of body fluid during the race as did every other driver.Right. Glad we got that one sorted out Lewis!As for being the best driver of the day...sorry...the majority of the field let him through on the racing line.Even Mark Webber struggled to make the replays of his overtaking exciting.
@1052 So what else could he have meant by saying his comments were dumb? That they had no sound but were correct? Obviously he's backtracking his on his comments about Ferrari, what else would it have been?
Hamilton admitted that his comment(s) about Raikkonen were dumb. No doubt that in the heat of the moment someone can say things like that. At least he is man enough to admit his mistakes and despite the fact I am not a fan of his, certainly accept his reasons as to why he did it, he needs no further explanation, move on from it and show what you can do best, simple as that.
1050 - So for all the plonkers who said Kimi did it and Ferrari are cheaters how do you all feel about Lewis's later comments where he admitted what he said was dumb?---I doubt Kimi did it on purpose, but even so your point makes no sense. LH said his comments were dumb (I agree) but he didn't say Kimi DIDN'T do it on purpose. Kimi MIGHT have done it, but Lewis DID do it (say something dumb)
The truth is that the PR Guru's put a statement in front of him to read out.I totally get it that he was dissapointed not to win, but so were another eighteen drivers.The difference is that Lulu saw it as his right to win.Do I think he'll win the WDC? It's probably 50-50 with Ferrari's number one.
We're having some problems displaying the comments at the moment. Sorry. We're doing our best to fix it.
