Lewis with all his skills, and all we get to see is him racing by himself 30 seconds ahead of everyone in F1. Just imagine how many F1 races as exciting as this never happened because of the flawed F1 format.

So everytime Hamilton wins a grand prix, he has a flashback of himself winning in Karting

Imagine people actually saying Hamilton only wins as he is in the best car. Well best drivers usually end up in the best teams which if they can work well with each other produces great cars. Before you get into f1 most series are pretty equal and the setup is the biggest difference. Hamilton earned his Mercedes spot and therefore his titles. All pro racing drivers are skilled in my eyes. On average im 2 seconds slower than the fastest lap on a kart track. I’m fast but for me to shave off two seconds is crazy. I will need to learn new techniques and skills and gain confidence. I’m self taught. When other people slate racing drivers I have to laugh because I’ve won every kart race bar 3 in which I came a close second. You all think you can drive but in real life I’m 4-10 seconds a lap faster than you. When we race you call me fast but in my head I know I’m slow compared to the real racers.

So this shows Lewis has always had a cheating faster ride than everyone else then... Must be nice to be the rich boy in the pack. Just look at Stroll, the talent-less hack for the answer to that one...

Hi @Formula1, this is from 1998, not 1996. You can see this from the graphics at 5 minutes, and also Lewis was born in 1985 so wouldn't have been 13 in 1996. :)
