  • Agreed, this time wasn't his fault.  I meant in previous races where he'd made a mistake.  I should have made that clearer.

    But that's why we love Hammy so much, he's human and messes up just like the rest of us, there is no fun in getting it boringly nearly perfect the whole time.  :nono:

    We all applaud those who put in 105% but that carries risks, I'd rather see Lewis committed above 100% - but sometimes getting it wrong  :yahoo: - than 97% the whole time like so many others.

  • I don't love Hammy, and don't think he gives it 105% or even close.  If he did, he would have dominated Nico.  Alonso is the guy who gives more than anyone on the grid.  If he had been in the Merc, he'd almost have the season wrapped up by now.

  • There are a few issues here - it is impossible to give more than 100%  :D
    If Alonso was in a Merc he may have done well but if his car died on three occasions he would not have the championship wrapped up by now! Plus, with the stupid double points rule it would be very difficult for anyone to have the WDC wrapped up half way through the season.
    I'm not a Hamilton fan either but I can't think of anyone (not even Alonso) who could have brought a car from 20th to 3rd. Also, let's face it, if it hadn't have been for the stupid decisions made by the team Hamilton would definitely have made second and possibly would have won.
    We are all entitled to our opinions but facts speak for themselves.

  • Fair enough for the math lecture, but the main point was that Lewis does not get everything out of the car that he should, and Alonso would have.
