By the way, what's the record??? Imagine if all 5 top contenders were mathematically able to win in the last race? It'd be epic.
forgot about FA - yeah I don't think I hate any of them as much as FA. Now, SV I find 2nd worst because he's just...idk...he took such an about turn IMO from 2009. He also thinks he's the greatest driver ever, which is annoying.

He's fast, but that's about it. He can't pass as well as some others, he sucks ASS from pole (lmao) and he also is immature and not experienced (as evident by some of his previous driving)

As for LH, I think he's being a little too aggressive lately

As for MW, idk I like this guy...seems honest - he mentioned that he would do anything to win. Not trying to hide

As for JB...I honestly love this guy. He's great.


But MA BOY KOBE! he's the man! His father looks like a pimp! I love it hahaha

I don't know where you got this impression from SV. How do you know what he's thinking? I've watched every race and pre-show and never got that vibe. I find LH to be muuuuuch more arrogant and self promoting and you never even mentioned him. He's a young kid with a bright smile but when the person close to the top is doing that it's not uncommon to see it the way you do but I just don't buy it. It's in your head so every move he makes will promote that but I doubt it's reality.

So basically, you don't like him because he keeps a positive outlook at things?

I haven't heard any statement come from Hamilton that sounds cocky this year. He is always modest but optimistic. He's never said, "We got this race in the bag."

What I wonder is why everyone is backing Webber. Maybe just because he is the underdog in it all not having won before. But that doesn't really make sense since he is driving the fastest car on the track. If anyone is a underdog at current it is the McLaren drivers.

I've read F1 Racing magazine mid-season summary (UK magazine...so its about a month late)....talked about most drivers....
they said (DC, Murray Walker...etc)....LH is not like LH back in 2007 and 2008.....after Jenson came abroad, he found his "inner calm" and able to analyze the situation....not to speak too soon to the press and mis-word the situation....without losing his pace and race aggression....
also that's something SV needs to learn now...he's got the page, skill, talent, aggression...but lack of experience and "inner calm" during the race.....

what surprise me was....how well JB and LH get along each other....not like the RBR garage....we see a different chemistry....which is nice....(unless they are all acting)....

I really dont understand the hatred from LH or SV, IMO, they are both young competitive drivers. LH is a lil too aggressive at times but I think he has learned a lot since he came to F1. I mean come on, the guy almost won a championship his first year, won it the second year, and in his fourth year, he is in contention again.

I know most people hate him from the 07 drama but I think he's grown up a lot. SV on the other hand, I truly dont understand at all why people dont like him. He's a great driver, a lil too impatient though.

Now FA, until this season, he didnt bother me too much. But this season, it seems like he just cant stop whinning. but him requesting for Massa to let him pass, set me over the edge. I have 0 respect for him

God MS looks like a friggin beast. Love this guy - he's cocky yet not apparently cocky it's hilarious to watch him talk!

As for SV, yeah he's impatient - which he should fix. He's also not as calm/collected as LH. I was REALLY pleasantly surprised when Lewis commented on his crash w/ MW in Singapore...wow, so well said with no apparent anger. Just a well formulated response.

That takes a little while and a good team & teammate to learn patience....at the moment....RBR management and MW as his teammate....its not letting him to be patience....
and Christian Horner isn't running the team as he wish....or Dr Marko was too bitchy in the garage talking shit with the media....at least Ron Dennis shuts his mouth when he visit Mclaren on race weekends....

The beginning of the season he was talking to a reporter about the differing driving styles between he and Button and said something like "People think Jenson is so smooth and easy on tires but they don't know that I can do that too" or something to that effect. It was brought up in that race thread as sounding pretty silly. He seems to have mellowed out a bit as the season progressed and I've warmed up to him a bit more but I do think he has more of an ego than most of the paddock. I don't fault him or any other driver (like most on here seem to do) for having an ego when they're among the 50 greatest drivers in the world. What the hell do you expect?

There's nothing wrong with LH's ego....that's his desire to win!

Both? Only Hamilton crashed and ripped his left suspension to shreds. Button had an off but never made contact with anything and that's why he's running now. Hamilton has a long way to go now since he's not getting in any practice time. It is only his second time at the track too...
