    ...yet this 'dumdum' continues to steal our lunch money. My friend, we can talk as much as we want -- but Hamilton, whether it be cheating/lying or any other reason - has put Vettel and Ferrari in the dumpster for what looks like to be more than half a decade now.

    I consider him a formidable competitor and one that must be respected and taken seriously. Otherwise, how can you expect to beat him?

    Our best friends are our enemies and competitors, they are the only force that can make us better and improve.

    I am a betting man. I've been literally betting on Ferrari via Bovada for the past 4 years. The only stupid guy here so far is me.

    Can I point out categorically that no specific person was called stupid in that post. The line containing ‘don’t be so stupid’ could have been written as - ‘For ****s sake’, or ‘Jesus christ’, or ‘It would be crazy’, ...... he won’t be any different to blah blah blah. If you substitute any of those phrases, or six dozen others, in that line, it demonstrates that the post is my thought on the subject, and NOT an attack of any form. It just so happens that I wrote the phrase I did. Had I thought about it, I’m not convinced I would have noticed anything wrong with it, but there we go, it may have come across differently to how it was meant, a common issue for many on all forums across the world no doubt

    You're right, the 'don't be so stupid' comment is not an attack on any specific person. Actually a whole group. The question is which group?

    So it's clear it was targeted to ALL "Elton fans"

    But it wasn't.

    He evidently doesn't remember when Rosberg scored twice as many points as Schumacher........:rolleyes:

    Aaaah... the Lewis fanboys are coming up again with Michaels career afterbirth....
    Let´s see how Lewis will compete after being off 4 years trying to get his music career going (and obviously failing due to lack of talent) and then coming back against a young driver under new reguations. Let´s see whether he will still win a race every season, especially if the car is not top...for some reasons I doubt, but in case it happens most likely the LH44-disciples will explain us why this is something completely different ;)

    He lost to Rosberg. No different than Hamilton. But only one is used as a slam on Lewis constantly here. I guess it's easier than defending Vettel.

    Adrian Newey! Four time world champion!

    During those years, so did your best buddy Elton. He was beaten by button, Vettel, Webber, Alonso,, in fact, so many people, I forgot all their names. Michael came back to help his buddy build a team, and what a job they did. You should be thanking him instead of trying to insult him, your little boy is reaping the rewards of what they built, and they’d be nowhere without him

    Lewis has contributed more success for Mercedes than Schumi ever will. And yeah Shumi still got beat. Just a fact not an insult.

    Michael is nothing to do with the subject of the thread, and neither is Elton. Why are you constantly trying to bait people. My mamma used to say, If you have nothing constructive or interesting to say, don’t say anything.

    Yes, there is a difference: Michael was in his 40s coming back after years of absence and Lewis was in his prime... A small difference you tend to ignore completely...And yes: Vettel profited just as much of the Newey car as Lewis does profit from the Hybrid cars and NOBODY here claims it makes Seb one of the GOAT but for some reasons the blinded Lewis fanboys think so with Lewis...

    Vettel is no longer worth any defense to me as an F1 or Ferrari fan. Beyond over rated

    How about Goodwood next week, anyone going? Anyone have any idea which drivers are there, and which days? I’m a guest of Ferrari on Thursday, mainly an industry and press day I think!
