Hopefully Seb, Max, Danny and maybe even Fred can give him an even greater challenge in 2018

As an aside it does demonstrate how underrated Nico was.
I never thought Nico was underrated, just somewhat marginalized.

Made a meal of it? Only because somebody in a red car was eating his porridge then..... After Vettel's clumsy opening, there was nothing really that Hamilton needed to go banzai over.

A hugely deserved WDC. But if Max's Red Bull is good next season, a 5th for Hamilton or Vettel will need to be hard fought for....

Hamilton is certainly the fastest driver at the mo and is quickly becoming 'complete.'
He has done an amazing job this season. He seemed to relish it more than any other time since 07 & 08.

Great, great driver.

Not the nicest chap imo. All this social media stuff he "does for the fans" is for self publicity. He said years ago he is desperate to remain famous after F1.

I see he called the Mexican fans the best in F1. Did he not say the same in the US, Japan and Britain? He loves the fans so long as they fund his lifestyle.

All that said, I hope he stays for a while yet so we can see some great battles between him,Vettel, Danny Ric and the young guns. It all depends on Ferrari. RB and Renault producing better cars.

Savior Hamilton the driver though, he's one of those once in a generation talents. Shame he's such an ass though.

Welcome to the real world, where this happens EVERYWHERE. It is the current way of the world. I'll reserve judgement on his personality if/when I meet him and make a proper assessment.


And just a correction - the fans do not 'fund' his lifestyle any more than the man on the street pays yours. He is paid by Mercedes and has sponsorship deals (which pay for his salary indirectly). Just like every other top sportsman, and indeed you. If you look deep enough.

It interesting, but if people like LH or any top flight sportsman were not making money for the team, then they wouldn't be paid what they are. The team makes more money from them than they make themselves.

Someone cant say that a set of fans are great these days, without someone with a keyboard slating them for it.

I wouldn't go quite that far as to his driving, but I do think that he is a very good driver. Just not great.

Unfortunately, tits are useful to humanity; not something that I would ascribe to Hamilton.

I wouldn't call him a complete tit, that's harsh. He's unfortunately, adopted a pop star image, a long with some of the negative aspects of that image, which in the world of motorsport grates and is somewhat cringeworthy. Unfortunately, he doesn't see it.

to be honest, i dont see it either.

fair enough if you dont respect that lifestyle or the fashion sense of the multi million dollar athlete, but surely even in that light, LH's demeanor and activities are pretty trivial compared to much of the salacious behaviour we as a society have become accustomed to seeing from other over privileged and/or overpaid sports stars.

that said, i will also tolerate his behaviour less the day he stops winning!

It's nothing to do with respecting, or not respecting the lifestyle/fashion sense of a multi million dollar athlete. I'm not wowed by status or celebrity. It's the negative aspects I don't care for, for example the crowd surfing at Silverstone. Call me old fashioned but I found that to be inappropriate and cringeworthy.
