Hamilton

It’s funny, he stands on the brink of 5 World Championships today but I still can’t warm to Lewis Hamilton....a superb driver without any shadow of a doubt  and yet most of the motorsport folk I knew absolutely detest him. He just comes across as a smug, spoiled and self-centred prima dona prone to whining when things don’t go his way.

They may not have his titles or his money but give me Hill (Graham and Damon) Hunt, Clark and Surtees any day of the week.

Alonso on Hamilton this week. 

What intrigues me is why so many people deny this.

I'm confused why you need to like him? 

Lots of people do.  Lots don't. Bit like the rest of the people in the world interacting.

I like him, knew him and his dad a little when he was a kid karting. Always been really ambitious and focussed, works hard and deserves success.  I think he may have got a bit carried away with some of the external influences a bit a few years ago but seems to be back on it now. Brilliant to watch, we need a few more like him in the sport.

Judge the art , not artist I say - and not for the first time . He is a sublimely gifted driver , that is all that counts.  I've been guilty of criticising some of his more gnomic quotes - but there'd be something deeply wrong if a sixty something , middle class,  white Yorkshireman like me had a lot in common  with  a  thirty something multi millionaire mixed race Grand Prix driver with a penchant for tattoos . But as a GP driver he is the real  deal , and that has been obvious since 2007.

He's the real deal, enjoy him while we can.

<< ... Plus well overpaid. >>

Overpaid by what yardstick? 
15 per cent more than Ricciardo is going to be on at Renault doesn't seem like too large a differential for someone on the cusp of a fifth world title (against someone who's never finished higher than third).

Didn’t realise Ricardo was on so much.   Just think all sports men get paid to much. Footballers  especially 

but suppose.  People say they are worth it or they would not get paid so much ,,like watching some football. Games but when you think a weeks wage for a top footballer is poss equal to five six years average wage for a person doesn’t seem right
