HELL YESSSSSSSS. Arguably the best driver in F1. He is 35, have him for 2 years, awesome, and that leaves the stage open for the next big thing when Alonso nears retirement.
Hamilton-Alonso it has to be. Top driver, miffed where he is, two year contract gives Mercedes a terrific option and plenty of time to look past that.
I'm not sure Hamilton-Alonso relations have thawed, I mean Hamilton was the reason Alonso left McLaren wasn't it?
joker97: I don't understand what you're getting at
I think the inference is that Hamilton has never had a slow car in F1. There haven't been many quicker that his McLaren or Merc. Ferrari, Red Bull, Brawn?
Haha Alonso ... we will see a lot of fireworks ... even Nico's only option was to leave. But he left at the top. RETIRED by Hamilton.
Cars are made fast by the drivers. They have an input in making the car faster. Obviously if the car is miles behind there's nothing much that can be done. I remember when Schumacher went to Ferrari they were slow as. He made the team fast and faster until no one could touch them.
Balls, you have to be joking? One person has a goal and a family, and his life ahead of him, the other is a poor prat from SledgeWidge, that has no comprehension of credibility, fame, and handing himself. Thats why his comments that are off the cuff are so bad , and so truthful.
Schumacher went to Ferrari, yes. He was No.1. Remember Indy? And many others, scripted for the No.1 driver, not in ability but in name and market presence. So I cant say how Rubens or Felipe would have matched up, as it was a given.
These days if Max or Fernando went there its about racing. ON YOUR OWN. None of this Im the man stuff, you paid me $100 Mill over three years so make me win
