    A weeee bit off topic, but, I thought it was....."Balls said the Queen. If I had to, I too could be King. Not because I have to, but, because I want to......." :p :D

    (of course you need to substitute two for the three tos)

    Everyone knows that...... Except the fanboys of course.

    Too bad Toto doesn't have any balls.

    Hamilton finished 5th, 4th, 5th 4th and 4th between 2009 and 2013.

    Give Max the same car and Hamboy is shaking like a leaf.

    Why so? What would there be to fear?
    He's accomplished enough to be a tad more self confident than that. :)

    For a former WDC, not so impressive in the 3rd best car on the grid.

    Thankfully Team Toto came along to the rescue.

    Q:: Given the dominance of RB during that era, where should the 3rd best car finish? A:: 4th or 5th. 4th by beasting one of the top team's second driver, 5th if you can't.

    Given that he did, it carries no disgrace into the future.

    Pl
    Please find herewith the alternative;

    Eddie Irvine described the F310 as "a piece of junk" and "almost undriveable" .
    John Barnard himself politely described it as "not very good" .

    Michael Schumacher dragged that POS to 3rd in the WDC.

    Enough said

    One should never presume anything....it's bad policy.
    I haven't ignored them at all, but, rather, having not been on location during said "meltdowns", I take any quotes, videos, sound bites, etc. with a grain of salt as I know how context can be twisted.

    I look at Lewis' record and find it hard to "accept" that he would be "shaking like a leaf".
    Respecting the skill of an adversary? Maybe so. Shaking like a leaf? Nah.
    Much is not what it appears in today's "auto racing" (pffffttt) show.

    I repeat (in case you haven't seen any of my previous posts regarding the same) I am the fan of no one and have never had to demean anyone (nor Lance...). Not even when they defeated my only hero, Jim. I have respected every driver (or, for that matter, anyone that has made it to a professional team) of any racing venue.
    I see that many others on this board, can not say the same. A shame.

    Hey the Fchat rules have changed once again! We are now judging drivers on 20% of their career. I'll play along. Schumacher finished 3rd 4th, 9th,8th, 11th and once DISQUALIFIED between 1996 and 2013. Give Hakkanin the same car and Schumi will be shaking like a leaf.

    He won a title. Meltdown would prevent such a thing. He achieved his goal. A title. Thats the point.

    They weren't sound bites. It's his reaction and demeanor either over the radio or directly out of the car. Live images/interviews. Rattled when beaten. Confused and angry when he can't match Button/Rosberg. Melting when it's happened more than twice in a row.

    A driver's reaction is to burst out in laughter when they lose a race when fighting for the championship? If so provide to us proof or footage of this. Does Schumacher's disqualification of ramming someone off track count as a meltdown?

    Hamilton: Verstappen talk a 'sign of weakness'
    Lewis Hamilton says he sees Max Verstappen's recent comments about him as a "sign of weakness".

    Verstappen told reporters this month that “Lewis is very good. He is definitely one of the best out there, but he’s not God. Maybe God is with him, but he is not God.”

    Hamilton, F1's six-time champion, was asked about his younger rivals' confidence at the Mercedes launch of their new sleek W11 car and admitted: “I find it funny seeing that.

    “I’ve just always known to do my talking on the track. Often I tend to see that [talk] as a sign of weakness.”
