......doesn't it diminish the stature of F1? Put aside the drama, shenanigans and conspiracy theory..........if F1 is the ultimate driving test, shouldn't it be somewhat harder than Hamilton has had it? In the really old days, there was something called racecraft, which was an experience and knowledge about how 'to finish first, you must first finish'. Today's F1(the regs, the reliability, the whole lot) means that a driver is less 'complete', but still able to win. Clearly Hamilton has been groomed for this success, but I hope that future F1 champs don't all come from the corporate robot mold.
