  1. @sri……
    ‘I could go on and on. Frankly speaking… i guess you don’t have a clue about what you are speaking!!!’

    Mmm…..Well, I have watched every GP event since 1982, and I have been to 33 races ‘live’ as well. So I think I might have some clue.

    I think you are entirely missing my point with your extensive list of F1 highlights. I agree you brought up some great moments, but they are entireley besides the point. What I was saying was that Lewis is an exciting, hard-charging RACER, in the same mould as Mansell and Villeneuve snr. Your example of MS once winning despite an extra pitstop is a perfect example of your ignorance. Whilst this was an impressive driving achievement, it really has little to do with racing where drivers fight each other on the track. It seems to me more and more that recent fans of the sport are often totally unable to understand this.

    Your rating of Hamilton as ‘good, quite good’, is hilarious and once more indicative of a simple lack of understanding. I am not going to go into a long defence of LH here, because I really would be wasting my time.

    Good to trade posts with you though…….:)

  2. @Paul Sainsbury, you would be wasting time defending LH because he is good nothing else.Great divers are made over years. Not a good idea to bring up how long or how many GP’s you have seen as that gets easily beaten by many here(watched since 1970 been to over 60 races). Can we just say the people who rated this race 1 or 2 and 9 or 10 were not really interested in the race,only the result.

  3. “What I was saying was that Lewis is an exciting, hard-charging RACER, in the same mould as Mansell and Villeneuve snr.”

    Lewis for certain had his share of races. But is he Clark or Moss or as you say Villeneuve Snr., i don’t think so.

    “Your example of MS once winning despite an extra pitstop is a perfect example of your ignorance”

    Why good sir, would you tell me that making one extra stop than normal and still winning a race was not being inspired enough? That was not the only time when we saw the genius that Michael Schumacher at work, was it? No am not talking about Jerez or Adelaide. You’d know better than that, having watched all races since, ’82 was that?

    Once again, i don’t mind Hamilton as much as i mind the idiotic press and fans levitating him towards sainthood. My assessment is precise. He’s just earning his ranks and he more than anyone else needs to acknowledge as much. Or, like in case of Raikkonen as we saw, he’ll be caught by a Massa (a man with much less god given talent but helluva lot more tenacity and panache)and left in his wake.

    1. Sorry Paul, i made a couple of mistakes, cos i was typing fast and well hiding from everyone. I’m at work. LOL. But i love a good discussion, as long as we are all level headed. I regret that i was a little curt in my earlier posts, but what i state is pure fact and i stand by that.

  4. I am very glad for Rubens and my congratulations to Button as well. Still don’t understand why everyone is wasting energy defending or laughing at LH crash. It was a race incident, whether he was pushing or was a simple mistake, he only knows. A pity nevertheless as he is getting stronger every race. A different subject I don’t think HK will be in Mc next year.

    @ sri

    I also enjoy a good discussion, no hard feelings, we are all fans and I think on this site there is a good level of respect….:)


    I understand your point about people rating the race a 1 or 2. I can honestly say though, at least as far as I am concerned (I rated it a 3) that it was because it was mainly stategy rather than racing that is was a little flat.

    1. I rated it a 3 because it was dead set boring, LeMans 24hrs had more action and cars went fast there too. This ‘temple of speed’ bs is non sense.

      Well Done RB keep it going.
