@23 I voted brexit yet I am a huge hamilton fan. The same as @34. The way you pigeonhole people makes you look very stupid even if that is not the case.

I appreciate Hamilton is a good driver but it's easy to be "motivated" in the best car on the grid. Try driving a car that can't get past Q3 and then see how far your motivation goes....

@38 you also forget when LH joined Merc they were not a winning team but when he went there he was motivated to help them become a winning team which he has.

Facts LH haters wont like. He has not always had the fastest car for every title he has won. Even Vettle admitted the Farrrarie was the better car the season before last. Also LH does not just go to winning teams Merc had not won when LH joined. He help them become the team they are today

@48 why should he take those seats away from young drivers. Also he has earnt the right to drive for the big teams. It is like saying Messi or Ronaldo should go and play for dagenham and redbridge. Also as I said before when he joined Merc they were not even a top 3 team.

Lewis Hamilton is not actually that good at driving. In tests he actually doesn't come out much better than the average adult male who's passed his driving test, which proves that he only wins because he's been given the best car - because the money men think he'll make them the most cash. Cynical really.

@100 and still you only call out LH and never mention Button or any of the other Drivers that have done the same. Along with film stars and singers Yet you only pick on Hamilton Also Hamiltons probably paid more tax than all of us put together already anyway

@140 course theres another reason , he prattles on about being blessed to much, lets his guard slip to show its all a game etc , so hes a brit so what hes still a prat, as for KR and JB course they partied and lived in monaco , but they didnt make arses out of themselves to the media , ok its my opinion, but im certainly not alone in thinking it

@147 so you dislike someone because he feels blessed and is happy to say that. So you openly say it is ok for others to live in Monaco. Do you also dislike every other star that dares to enjoy a party?

@147. When he lets his guard slip how does that prove he’s not blessed and that it’s a game? You are of course allowed your opinion, everyone is but opinions that are not based on evidence are worthless. If you can make a case to show he is a xxxxxxxx I will change my mind. Eg Tiger Woods is a great golfer but also an ******** based on the evidence of his bad behaviour. Can u share LH slips?

@150 very well said. I am with you on it is ol to dislike someone if there is good enough reason. Like for me I really dont like Giggs because of what he done to his brother. But to add to that I will add that does not mean he was not one of the best players ever. Factually it would be wrong to say so. He was an amazing player but hurrid to his brother

@149 tell me where I said it was just the car when Vettal won it because I have never said that. He is worth of his 4 world championships. I do believe LH is a better driver than Vettal now as he makes too many mistakes but back then he was the best. Happy to have a debate but dont put words in my mouth

@157 so nothing of substance to back up your hatred. And yes in your words he is a driver so why would anyone hate a driver so much. Giggs slept with his brothers wife. Hamilton says he feels blessed and enjoys a party and fashion Can you not see the difference? Also you cant use the tax issue anymore because you just said it was ok for others to live there.

@163 so now resorting to silly childish comments because you cannot back up your opinions with sensible reasoning. I was always taught if you cannot back your opinions up with reasoning and dont like being questioned on them then dont say anything.

119. Posted by simonk You crease me up, Troll on Simon. Anyway more importantly: How will Ocon perform now he's unleashed? What about LeClerc and Vettel? Will Beardy Bottas start as well as last year and maintain it? Can Ham win another title and be the all time beast at F1 wins? What about Lando at Maclaren? Can Max deliver? Will Albon lift his game? So many questions...

@168 I think Leclerc will come out on top against Vettal this year. The only reason I think this I think vettal has lost his confidence when under pressure. A question for you do you think Renault can give DR a better car to compete in this year?

@172. You may be right if Ferrari and Le Clerc can pull themselves together. Also think if Honda can find some power for Reb Bull MV could challenge. Red Bull much less likely to make mistakes than Ferrari. I’ll still go for LH but think this will be his toughest year.
