The fact is that if we didint have drivers like hamilton in the races then the races would be far more boring, loss of respect? i respect him more for taking those chances and not being the good boy sitting in the corner. I like the fact he takes risks and doesnt just wait for it to happen like button. Dont get me wrong button drove well in the final stages of the race, its the only time he has ever impressed me but if vettel hadnt had made that mistake button wouldnt have got past because he hasnt got the balls or overtaking courage that hamilton has.

Hamilton=c0ck, proper drivers overtake without crashing, Button would have got past on the last lap as he was within a second and the farcical drs would have given him an extra 300mph (or so it seemed watching some of them!) and got past. Hamilton should also have been penalised for spinning Webber.

Not because he has balls and tries to overtake, but because of his new found attitude towards rules, stewards and other drivers. His outburst on telly. I agree, drivers should be able to speak their mind, but take JB as an example. He's had a lot more disappointments than Hamilton and he has never gone on a rant on live telly and called everyone else ridiculous. He'd merely decline to comment which would still convey his frustration and anger at whatever situation but wouldn't make him look bad.

No, certainly not, it was a genuine racing incident, Mark didn't leave much room for error and Lewis made an error... simples... that's what happens when cars touch in low grip conditions.

No, he made an error as you said therefore he should have been punished which he wasnt but Webber was by losing lots of time

There is a large difference between making a small error (he only slid a foot or so) and "causing an avoidable accident" by diving into a gap that doesn't exist.

IMHO the latter is BS anyway cos the only way to prevent accidents in racing is to keep the drivers out of the cars Big Grin
