I'm not a Hamilton fan, but all credit to him and Mercedes today, great racing good call and at least he had to work for it today
Very embarrassing. Can’t imagine them that far ahead at monza.
Hamilton is no legend to me and never will be.
LH doesn't care about you.
DOTD Hamilton today.
Red Bull really should have anticipated Mercedes doing a pit stop and have been ready to respond.
Got caught out big time.
He will always be a massive F1 legend and will go down as one of the all time greats, whether you like it or not though
Luckily your opinion means nothing to statistics and all the records Lewis keeps smashing ;-)
Hamilton driver of the day for me.
Red Bull are silly. If they called max for the softs right the next lap after Lewis got the mediums, it would have been their race...
I missed the race, but just read a short recap. Sounds like Mercedes made amends for the previous race and got Hamilton's strategy spot on this time round.
Much better race than I was expecting TBH.
Whether you're a fan of Hamilton or not, the 20 seconds he made up was impressive.
Because he’s got the quickest car and wins 9/10?
For all I'm no fan of LH - there are few drivers in the history of F1 who can drive like he does - you watch the onboard and he is like a machine for precision and execution - rarely any second guessing on approach, etc. I'm not much of a fan of F1 so might have missed some but from what I've seen only Verstappen (of current drivers) is even close in that respect and even he makes 2-3x the number of micro-corrections, etc. compared to LH never mind the likes of Vettel who is making an order of magnitude more corrections. (And that is very little down to the car - you can see the same on simulators, etc. as well.).
Bottas has the quickest car too. He couldn't pass a Renault today
Someone's got to have the quickest car.
So Schumacher never had quickest car either? Or vettel at red bull? If or button for brawn?
Watch a different sport, been the same for decades.
I don't think its a coincidence that the best drivers generally end up in the best cars though.. Still, you have your opinion but i think its going to be a minority one.
Interesting conversation in the cool down room. Surprised by that.
