if you’re naturally born very talented in what you do then you’re magnificently a powerful champion, but if you aren’t born talented enough then you can only be just a winner,… not anyone can tame wild horses time and time again repeatedly but only those who are born with that special talent can easily do, and this explains the huge difference between Hamilton and Bottas in the same racing car Just like a powerful horse needs a special rider, the best car needs an outstanding driver, and obviously that driver is Lewis Hamilton not Valtteri Bottas 👍👌🤗

Their wearing masks ? This proves how weak Hamilton is and easily he can be played for a fool.

I remember this race so much! Like Senna did at Donnington in 93, Lewis made them all look like amateurs that day. I don't care if you hate him for his politics or his music or his dress sense. If you can't watch him race and beat people in equal cars like that, and not give him respect. Then you'll never be a racer

Love Lewis. But his mask. Rather frustrating to see an organization make billions off people, and then literally not donate a single dime back the community it’s supposed to represent. You’re better than that Lewis. Don’t bite that bait.

Mercedes was the first F1 team that use their technology to made RESPIRATOR and open sourced their design.

You don't always win the battles Lewis, But you win the wars. 14 years in F1 and are a 7 time champion. A 50% championship success rate. Imagine you won in 07 and 16 with the racing gods being fairer to you. You would then have 9/14. And had to compete against world champions fast Ferrari's equal status team mates and yes Nico beat you once. But do i see him as the better driver? No you had a ton of misfortune that year. That on an equal playing field equal machinery and reliability. You will always come out on top. Like him or hate him. There is no question about his ability as a driver to say he is the greatest. 93-06/10-12 16 years for Michael(if he stayed retired he achieved it a year sooner(. But he didn't have team mates challenging him, He deliberately took out drivers to win championships even the great Senna done that. But what stands out the most for me with Lewis, He has been hard but fair. Yes he's got it wrong and was shown with the two Albon incidents. But the mistakes are now minimal. When Max and Charles get to Lewis's Maturity and picking the sensible overtakes rather than the specular ( Yes when Lewis was doing it. I'd love it, But when it goes wrong and cost vital championship points you think of why didn't you just be patient) Sometimes settling for what you have is better than Nothing. Lewis has that capacity to be long sighted for the end goal and has worked for him. Yet has still pulled off specular over takes like his two triple cars overtakes in Bahrain and I think Germany (I'm tired currently cant remember the years at the top of my head.) When he needed to maximise an off weekend.

I'd love to know how many, if any, views you'd lose by omitting the word "epic". Every time I see an adjective, I wonder why it's there. Why? Because I think people should be allowed to decide for themselves whether, for example, what Lewis's drive was like.

The whole f1 pit lane downed their tools stopped working on the cars and watched. If you knew anything about f1 that is like a massive deal. Hamilton also wasn’t poor he was lower middle class which in motor racing terms is Poor. Other drivers on the grid have come from working class backgrounds. To make it they need a team or sponsor to cover costs. You’re parents need to be upper class to survive without a sponsor.

I remember Lewis was a big star even in GP2. In Estonia they started to make GP2 news because of him. It was never a case before and after. It was like "You know Hamilton won again in GP2" - - "Yeah but what is Gp2?". At the end of 2006 GP2 season it was like "Cant wait when Lewis is coming to F1!"

What an amazing athlete and source of inspiration. Well done Lewis. I haven't been your fan but your determination and willingness to win demands utmost respect.

Lewis definitely deserves what he achieved because he is one of the F1 greats. I am not his fan anymore only because it is not really fun to see the same team and the same driver being crowned champions year after year as it gets stale and boring. I am a Vettel fan personally but why I am not Lewis' fan anymore comes from a fundamental issue F1 has had since forever which I absolutely hate but is he one of the legends of F1? Absolutely, not going to deny the facts, definitely deserves all 7, should have been at least 9 by now (if it wasn't for gravel trap in Shanghai in 2007 and engine failure at Sepang in 2016)

This was the first time I ever saw him (due to a list of reasons). I turn on just as he started his fight back. I knew I was watching a future F1 champ, and actually said that when hubby asked what I was doing. I'm not sure how much I actually breathed through the entire time! I wonder how many of us who actually watched that race can remember who won it (without looking at the podium)? I know I can't!
