I have this feeling that you're right. I was watching P1 and he only had about 45 minutes in that plus another 10 in P2. It's going to be tough, particularly if tomorrow is wet and the race dry.

Maybe that never-say-die attitude will help him pull something out of the bag. I hope so.

So Lewis has had 1 win, 3 DNFs, 2 crashes and one more today since I started this thread.

Jinx.

Yes, I must admit in my eyes his stock value has with a few stutters, gradually declined over the course of this year.

He's just hit that crap run of results/form that every great driver suffers from at some point, it's not as though he's been slow is it, just an unfortunate run of events and subsequent incidents.

In 2008, the sort of thing that happened to him in Singapore would probably have gone in his favour, not Webber's as it turned out. Sometimes things just go against you and there's nothing you can do?

Think if he didn't crash in Monza or Singapore. He'd finish behind webber in the latter but not Monza. I don't think it was entirely his fault at Monza, nor at Singapore. But what happens, happens. Those points are valuable, but Hamilton will rebound. There's 4 races left including Japan. that's a possible 100 points. I'm willing to go out on a limb and say he has the possibility to win Korea and Abu Dhabi. Long straights, tight corners, high speed will play into McLaren's car. Brazil is another potential circuit he could win at. There's nothing but up from here. He's aggressive, good. I'd rather someone go all out and try to pass than watch 'follow the leader' like almost every other driver, bar some Alonso or Kobayashi.

That's assuming there is a Korean GP.

I have no doubt there will be. It doesn't take 2 weeks for the pavement to cure. And if what they're saying is true the final layer was laid yesterday. So I HOPE there is one, and I expect there to be one. If there wasn't one we'd probably know by now.

On the thread about the possibility of the Korean GP going ahead, it was said it can take 4 weeks to cure.

The subject seems to have changed somewhat, but Charlie Whiting is not going to inspect the circuit until after Japan, so we won't know until then.
