There's something about the man which really repulses me;not sure what it is about him that irritates me other than his ridiculous earrings and now stated fondness for tattoos. He always seems to be whining about something or other and gives the impression of a huge chip on his shoulder.

Does lots of things that annoy me. Top probably being him 'keeping it real' and just being a poor guy from Stevenage. Been a McCartney scholar since he was a kid and flies round in a private jet whilstnwearing jewellery that costs more than most people earn in a lifetime.

However, his main problem is the British media and his fanboys.
Mercedes this year is stupidly dominant in qually and race trim.  Without mechanical problems and crashing into each other they'd have 1-2d every race easily.

I liked him when he first appeared on the scene, but now like many others I cannot stand him or his girlfriend.

Hamilton and Rosberg both 1.9 to win qualifying. So if you dutch them you automatically lose Laugh

He did grow up a lot poorer and had to work a lot harder to get where he is that Nico my dad got me here Rosberg, Hamilton got the bus to school through rough Stevanage, Rosberg's mum drove him back and forth to school through the Monaco race trace circuit, every day, there is more natural fight in Hamilton and with that comes an edge, a desire to win at all costs and sometimes that can bring out the less attractive side of your personality, but I think he's a good guy, he races to win, and as seen this season - he has a helluva lot more bottle and bravery on the track than the silver spooner, who is basically a PR machine, at least Lewis doesn't sugar coat his interviews, he does keep it real, whether that bothers you or not.

:D funny post

to you, he could be called Lewis 'uncle ronnie got me here' Hamilton.
you mistake bottle and bravery for bare faced gung-ho stupidity
and to say he doesn't sugar coat his interviews :D that's hilarious. he's about as genuine as a £9 note. that's precisely why he's so unpopular, he's a bullsitting machine of the highest order!

If Nico was as brave as him this year - he'd be 17 points ahead and not behind :)

It might help if he could be as magnanimous in defeat as he was in his interview after winning today.He is a complete and utter knob who throws his toys out of the pram when things dont go his way. He also needs to put things into perspective and realise that his world championship has very little value when there were only two drivers that could possibly be world champion and that was any driver who happened to be driving for mercedes this year

how long have you been watching f1, when has it NOT been like that, in schumacher's days, he was out on his own, and not because he was the best,
Report noitsnotme November 23, 2014 7:02 PM GMT
That is the point, because there is no competition in the sport the title of world champion means very little. There are probably fewer than a dozen meaningful overtaking manoeuvres through the whole season.The fact that they give double points in the last race to keep it interesting says it all,they will be giving it triple points the way the sport is going, even sky tv who are the absolute masters of marketing a sport are struggling to get the viewing figures up on something as boring as this.I know plenty of people that watch the start then turn over because that is the only "exciting" part of the race.

Watched F1 since the early 90s but wont be watching next year.

In a race they are 5seconds ish off ultimate pace and its just about tyre preservation. Only watched about 5 laps today

Races were pretty boring in the early 2000s but the cars were mind blowing. Now its like Greenpeace make the regulations. Watched part of the GP2 race and theres virtually no difference between F1 and GP2

6 wins and a draw out of 8

Some of those were against Kovalleinen who is garbage as well

Wehrlein - the Mercedes reserve driver – was making his debut in the 2014 car and set a fastest time of 1:42.624 late on Wednesday afternoon, a time 0.7s quicker than Valtteri Bottas' benchmark on Tuesday. His trouble-free 96 laps of running was in stark contrast to fortunes at McLaren, with the team again failing to set a time as it tried to test the Honda power-unit at Yas Marina.

Next season looking mega competitive. Could put any elite driver in the Merc and the worst theyd finish 1st or 2nd.  Even Red Bull werent that dominant

Hamilton has been great this year and deserved the title.  Driver of the year is surely Ricciardo?

2 were v Kovalainen
2 were v button despite 4 retirements in 2010 and six in 2012
2 were v Rosberg despite 3 retirements in his championship winning yearGrin

The draw was with Alonso but he still finished ahead of him in the Championship on countback of 2nd places after having same number of wins.

Rosberg had 3 no scores due to mechanical failures aswell but everyone seems to omit that

The fact that hamilton won six more races than Rosberg and the fact that rosberg deliberately took him out of a race when leading the championship and still losing the title makes rosbergs 3 retirements too meaningless to mentionLaugh
Report Blazing Boots November 30, 2014 10:48 AM GMT
I started the year wanting Rosberg to win, but as the season unfolded it became clear to me that Hamilton was the quicker driver. He was able to match Rosberg's pace while preserving his tyres better and using less fuel and then when he needed to  establish a winning margin and maintain it.

And Rosberg's win at Monaco was greatly assisted by his "accident" in qualifying.
Report bb66 December 1, 2014 12:17 PM GMT
Hamilton and Rosberg had the same failure in Montreal, Hamilton DNF, Rosberg managed to finish 2nd. Hamilton ruined Rosberg's race not letting him overtake after Rosberg was hampered by SC out after he had passed pit lane entry already.

While Hamilton may have been the faster driver, I very much prefer Rosberg for his personality.
Report scandanavian_haven December 2, 2014 12:27 PM GMT
Hamilton had one more DNF than Rosberg( no thanks to Rosberg taking him in out in one), had fewer poles but yet still won not only because he was quicker but because he had much more bottle than Rosberg as seen with Lewis's braver driving with his overtaking manoeuvres at key times, it would have been unjust if Rosberg had of won. most people seem to prefer Nico because he has a nicer personality than Hamilton, but that that separates the winners from the losers, winners have a edge.

Laugh like that winning edge he showed in 07 and 10 you mean Laugh

2010 Lewis Hamilton is the greatest example of driver capitulation in the modern F1 era. He had the title at his mercy after Spa and proceeded to systematically empty it down the toilet by driving into other people. Hamilton only wins the title when, like everything in his career, its served up to him on a plate. he needed help from his best mate glock in 08 and a car an age ahead of everyone else and a second rate team mate to win in 14. make no mistake, hamilton v rosberg = chelsea v barnet. he should have had this title wrapped up by the end of the european season but didnt because he spent the whole summer bottling qualifying. fortunately for lewsi, rosberg showed him in monza that he's an even bigger bottler, how could hamilton not be supremely confident after seeing that?

a hattrick in football is scoring 3 goals in a row within one half, referring to titles they have to be won in succession
Report scandanavian_haven December 11, 2014 5:29 PM GMT

What are you talking about bb66, not sure what country your from but here if you score three goals in a game in either half with any other playing scoring between, before or after, you have scored a hat-trick as long as you have scored 3 in 90 minutes, it doesn't matter what order, but the term-hat-trick in general is referred to anything that has been achieved in three's, anyone in the country understands a what hat-trick of titles means. But it's a pedantic point anyhow, he is going for his third title, which is a hat-trick of titles.
