    Lewis is a better driver. Max is over rated af. Max doesn't half the skill of Lewis. You f1 folks just like hype trains in your sport. You have a 7 time 🌎 champ that you idiots don't even appreciate.

    Max is going to destroy Hamilton. Lewis has turned himself into a bitter radical leftist thinking hes untouchable while verstappen has focused on winning. Lewis used to be good for F1, now hes just another low IQ race hustler.

    The championship should add rounds in different vehicles. Double points available for a V8 race round Bathhurst, ditto for results from an f3 race around McCau and a third set of double points for a 3 lap race around the isle of man course in equal WRC cars. IMO vastly preferred to simply adding even more "Tilka-dromes".

    Lets do facts!!!! 1 Max won 97 of his first 100 kart races, WTF are you on about dodgy kart career, he is the best Karting has ever seen by miles, and yes also then he was tough and again much younger then everyone else. (you created a bullsh*t story on a part you have seen in the docu about Max, that was a 1 time mate) 2 F3 he had a shit start with tech DNF's, won more then ocon and was much faster then everyone else. 3 When he joined F1 he made a mistake in Monaco but his first year was flawless, that you don't like his driving style, aggressive driving style is your problem, I and many love it. Max never made more mistakes then any other top driver, Lewis is far from perfect either, and Max did it at age the other only could dream off. This whole bla bla about Max from you guys was utter nonsense and I guess you are worried for this year, not such a GOAT when he gets beaten by Max in a competitive car. very dissapointing from the Race, bah

    Mercedes increased thermal efficiency of that engine. Can they start a race with a few kilos lighter on fuel or everyone starts with the same amount? I have no doubts that Mercedes has tricks up its sleeve. Also they perk up in those European circuits with cooler temperatures. I like how the competition is shaping up. As far as Valterri ... I think Mercedes supremacy is so strong that second place is like a desert with the 3rd place not being much of a challenge and the number one just peeling away. Max on a strong year still came 3rd and barely made the number two sweat.

  46. Mohamed Abdinur

    Max still has to learn strategic patience. How he went tail to noise with Sergio at Turkey with slippery wet surface when he had the faster car that he could pick and choose when to overtake with only to get washed out by loss of down force illustrates the inexperience he's still learning from. Btw it could instead be his confidence in his abilities instead of patience. If that is the case then he's not going to learn from high risk incidents like that and won't really gain experience. But I don't think it's the case of confidence blinding him because that Bahrain race where Leclerc drove into Sergio pushing Max off the track showed max to be trading the cautious approach to racing lines and wasn't the cause of that. He showed patience in that matchup.

    I think Checo is extremely underrated even today, that Sauber season with 3 poduims was pretty much like Senna's 84 with Toleman and that Malasyan gp was like Senna's Monaco in 84. McLaren damaged his reputation pretty badly and he didn't deserved it that car was pretty bad and he didn't have the team behind him, he should've waited for that Ferrari seat. But he continued to deliver podiums in pretty bad cars, that's something Max and Charles never accomplished in a lesser team, neither Lewis but thats just because he never really had a bad car so we'll never know if he would've achieved podiums or even wins in lesser machinery. The same goes for Checo in a top car, perhaps he'll surprise us and could join Max and Lewis in a fight fir the title, but I think that only if Bottas is also up there otherwise if every Mercedes win goes to Lewis it's game over for the red bulls.

    I duno how you say Lewis has the measure of Seb in a wdc battle. He had cars capable of winning at mclaren but didnt. Hell lewis tweeted data from the team, was involved in lying about the safety car pass, etc etc . I.m.o. Lewis doesnt actually know how to be a honorable sportsman. Duhbai 16 for example. Its a team sport you win by winning right out not by sabotage. Merc has had such an advantage i dont deny lewis talent BUT he really hasnt had a battle since Nico

    I think RBR will be closer but merc will still have the edge. BUT if they do falter at certain tracks RBR will likely take it. BUT if you look at Rob Smedley's analysis of the long run pace etc in testing you'll see everyones bought same place with chances of being higher/lower.

    I’ve got to say I thought the race was better than this Hamilton always wins from the front narrative that has developed. He won plenty of races in McLarens that we 2nd or 3rd best cars and it’s disingenuous to suggest he has never had to fight for a win.

    I'm not a massive Ham fan I'll admit. But you can't doubt him or say it's just the car, that's ridiculous. The guy burst onto the scene in his rookie year and was one error away from winning the championship that same year, he finished tied on points with Alonso who had won the title for the two years prior. Not only that, Hamilton rarely makes mistakes. We overlook it, but he is constantly and consistently fast and focused, even after being dominant for so long. He will go down as one of the best in history and deserves that credit.

      Don't forget, he "burst onto the scene" in the best car on the grid courtesy of being under Ron Dennis' wing. How many drivers start their first F1 race in the best car on the grid? A better measure would be to look how Lewis went in 2013, the year before the new regs made Mercedes unbeatable.

      @Craig Webster and your logic said every single drivers in F1 can get 70+ wins and 6 world titles just by driving the mercedes?? Very smart.. Lewis always wins every single championship in his career, he beat rosberg, vettel, and other f1 drivers even when they are not in F1 yet.. do you think lauda and mercedes would pick him if Lewis is not the best?? Lewis still manage to get 11 race wins and multiple pole positions during the vettel and redbull era, how many wins or pole positions that max can get during his career??

    Nah, if the _Red Bull_ has even the slightest edge, VER will smoke HAM. HAM has been running out front so long that his wheel-to-wheel combat skills, aren't as strong as they once were. Even more importantly, there is little reason to believe the _W12_ will be considerably better than its predecessors when having to chase from positions in traffic. Further, I would even offer that the HAM who once tamed any kind of package to extract the maximum from sub-optimal machinery now fares even poorer than BOT when car handling gets tricky. I hope we are treated to an actual battle for the _WDC,_ but doubt one will materialise.

    Russell is going to need to make a decision about his future fairly soon - he's in the same age bracket as Verstappen and Leclerc, and they're both in high profile teams, while he is trundling around in one of the grid's slowest cars, and he'll get to the point where he can't live off his junior career soon enough. If Hamilton stays for 2022, Russell needs to forget about waiting and try and bag a seat as close to the front as possible.

    A generational battle we did actually get to see only recently was with Vettel vs. Leclerc.

      People always say it's the car not Hamilton, yet the person who was really carried by their car was Vettel.

    Gary Anderson: Lewis Hamilton never had to battle or ring the neck of a car that wasn't the fastest apparently oh except for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013. Even Ferrari had the quicker car in 2018 and most of 2017 But max, oh the wonderful max, has had to win in cars that are supposedly like wheel barrows. Anyone would think he won his races peddling a bike, not a car designed by a man widely regarded as the best engineer in the sports history.

      I mean... the Mercedes was still the fastetest car in 17 in 18. Ferrari dropped off way too early. + in 08 he was lucky as hell. Just as he has been his hole career. Yes he is exceptional but also very overrated. His team mates in that Mercedes team were rosberg and Bottas, neither of them is or was one of the top drivers. Atleast that’s how I feel about it. I’m still waiting for him to prove he’s one of the best of all time

      They're over reacting. But what they mean is Max was never really a title contender with Ferrari out of the way. But these people will get annoyed when Mercedes pulls it off again like 2017-19 against Ferrari. As Mercs say, it always was closer than it looked. These people want championship to be decided in final race, I guess. But with extremely high number of races, the championship is bound to be wrapped up with 3-5 races remaining.

      a very strange comment indeed given Lewis has had to dig very deep multiple times in the last few years to win races from positions he should not have.

    Hamilton won’t be as hungry as max and that makes a big difference

      While I agree Mercedes will be hungry for the championship I don’t agree that fighting for an 8th championship would be as appetising as fighting for your first. Lewis has already stated that this year will be about promoting equality

      Hamilton and Mercedes never sit on their victories. They are always hungry for more championships. That is why they have 7.
