Can you blame the guy? Today a guy that’s younger than him won his 4th WDC while he went back 3 positions.
If he’s driving the best his last team worked overtime to find a way to screw him. You don’t see Khedira fouling Ronaldo as he’s about to score, do you?
If he’s leading the race his tire explodes and his teammate wins.
If he has a good start like last week, his tire gets clipped and Vettel has zero damage – goes without saying, a missile can hit Vettel and it will probably move him up in the race:-)
If he’s on one of his favorite tracks (Montreal) and about to pass his teammate, Button hits him, Lewis’ car is destroyed while Button’s probably gets a 10% aero performance boost and magically wins the race from dead last:-)
If everything is going great, Massa or the FIA will make sure it doesn’t stay that way for long (Spa 2008 and a billion occasions in 2011).
On top of that, he’s now got to drive really, really slow to save the tires. And DRS has turned everyone into Lewis in terms of overtaking.
Plus now he’s showing some questionable judgment in his starts while he’s on the front row or 2nd row.
And if that doesn’t happen, then his girlfriend will surely break up with him to seal the deal…
It’s actually shocking that he has won anything in F1 or any other competition…
He has massive talent but like Dave Hobbs and Newey said today numerous times, talent is completely IRRELEVANT without the car/team and everything else that’s needed to win.
