Personally, I think 2007 was Hamilton’s best season to date. He was up against 3 drivers in top form for the 2007 title, and it was one costly mistake in China, and a freak incident in Brazil that prevented him from taking the title that year.
2008 Lewis drove really well too. But he wasn’t facing serious competition from Kimi or his teammate that year. He drove well throughout that season, but needed a little luck to wrap up the title. 2009 and 2010 he drove as well as he did in the 2008 season, with some majors highs and lows, but I still didn’t think he was as stellar as he was in 2007.
2011 has definitely been his poorest season thus far.
