I think if the Mercedes is still a competitor for wins, Hamilton will want to stick around to beat Schumacher's record of championships. He already stands to become the most successful driver by wins (in fact, he would draw level with Michael on 91 if he won every remaining race this year).

Shinji Nakano is the greatest of all time. And he once visited the UK, which makes him as British as half our sporting heros. #VoteForShinji
If Ten-Tenths had been around during his career, that's why I'd have voted for him in the polls. Because he's British.

I remember Max Mosley once said Lewis would beat Schumi’s records and that was back in 08. Well he’s already beaten him on poles, wouldn’t be surprised to see him beat him on wins too

How far away from Schu's total wins is Sham now?

Surely it's inevitable that he will surpass it now?

If he wasn't in a Merc he'd be in another car capable of winning (but not Ferrari!)

I find it interesting that some think Leclerc didn't make a great start to his Ferrari career? Would have won his 2nd race....
I think he's done better than the team expected....

We know he's bloody quick, and calm & collected. Now we also know he's got wheel to wheel racecraft right up there with anyone we've seen in the last 20 years! Frightening prospect!!!

The move on Max at Vale reminded me so much of Montoya on Schu at the Bus Stop back in '04. Great confidence and guile.

I will take part in this meaningful discussion...close your eyes and imagine if Vettel was the driver who was let go and Kimi remained with Ferrari. The current landscape of every racetrack would be transformed. Leclerc battling with Verstappen while trying to chase Kimi.....

I'm a great believer in the option of escaping from real life by indulging in dreams and fantasies. The saving grace is that I'm confident that you don't really believe that Pete....... (or if you do, that you have suitable counselling on hand..... ).

If he doesn't retire now (or isn't sacked), 2020 will be a bloody nightmare, as Charles blows him into the weeds of history.

I've mentioned it before, and I realize he's one of the greatest of all time, but hamilton has the biggest horseshoe up his rear it is unreal. How convenient he gets a fairly unnecessary safety car at the perfect time to benefit him. And at silverstone, no less! Go figure...

There are probably as many times in Hamilton's career where he has been unlucky as much as lucky. The difference is, he is repeatedly in the position where 'luck' can benefit him.

In my book a poster that resurrects old threads to have a pop at a driver (any driver) must have their own agenda.

Roll on Spa this weekend!

I haven't been shy to say I'm not a fan of Lewis, although I can fully admit he's the best out there right now.

But my resurrecting old threads is just because I avoid the forum (tho I love reading it when I do) until I can catch up to real time on races so I'm not spoiled on who wins. I just caught up this week since playing catch up all the way back from le mans. (Thanks velocity or whatever channel it is that has broadcast that full race last couple years). I'm not pushing any agenda and not trying to be an annoyance either. (Hope to god I don't get a rep like that f1guy got lol!)

This accusation that the stewards are actually bending the rules to favour Hamilton thing is new for you though?

I don't think i have said that, if so, no, I don't actually think that. It's just one lucky break and favorable ruling after another though. And by favorable, I dont mean they're bending the rules. Vettel is probably as much to blame for getting harsher rulings on himself than anything with his constant mistakes of late. I'll tone it down I guess.
