I suppose I don't really follow F1 enough to be aware of his personality. And from a casual spectator point of view I actually like the risk takes, it's just like Schumacher in his prime, ploughing through the opposition. F1 is a bit repetitive otherwise, just cars driving round in circles. British Grand Prix is usually good because there's a high chance of rain, but Monaco, what a bore fest....

just spotted this
Quote
Lewis Hamilton believes that death is an acceptable price to pay for doing what one loves and says he could not conceive of a better place to die than in the cockpit.
seems he doesn't want to die an old man!

Is that a quote or hearsay.

found it on the bbc F1 gossip & rumours section ... Which came originally from here ... so will have some Wheldon/Simoncelli link .... Hamilton won't be only one of that mindset

Do you know that the most dangerous sport/pastime on the planet is swimming. More people die swimming, globally, than any other recognised sport. Motor racing is relatively benign in comparison. ;)

5/1 odds I read on the next race featuring a Hamilton/Massa coming together.

Gotta love Jenson ..

Quote
And when asked about Hamilton's latest bust-up with Felipe Massa Button blasted: "I don't give a f***.

"I don't want to be asked again. It is doing my head in. If you want to interview me, fine, but I don't want to be asked about Lewis again."

True what he says though - he's having a storming run at the moment and everyone seems more interested in his whiny team-mate.

I see Hamilton had a good win at the weekend.

Got to say that the Abu Dhabi venue is absolutely stunning. Love to stay in that hotel, or on one of those yachts in the harbour for the next race weekend....not sure my wages will quite cover it  >:(

lol ... Hamilton won because Vettel went off at turn 2 & couldn't recover car intact to the pits ... I know one of the chaps that was on a boat there

Love to see them all in equivalent cars - if only for a one off race. I reckon Alonso might just sneak it.

suspect you might be right .... how good the car is decides who wins ... driver component in F1 is 20% tops

You reckon it's that low? Should be the mechanics on the podium then...
