Lewis Hamilton is the best driver Britain has produced since Mansell. Quite possibly the best driver we have ever produced. He showed up the two time world champ Fernando Alonso in his first season.

Yes Lewis, rookie. beat a two-time world champ, lets not forget that, as far as I know that has never happened before, a rookie beating his team mate who was a world champion.
He is special, most people tuning into F1 are doing it to see Hamilton pull off some masterful overtaking manoeuvre, I know I am, he is quite simply a class act.

I couldnt agree more, Lewis is so great to watch and a true racer, I wish so call fans would get off his case.  I bet if you tally up the overtaking this year Lewis is probably double the next best man. He matched and beat a 2 time champ in the same machinery, I can confirm this has never happened before. He may have made mistakes but they get blown up because of his status. Lewis will win this years title and many more. He is the best on the grid bar none in my eyes.

I really want to see Lewis race Vettel as until now they have never been in similar machinery, last year Lewis had a dog whilst Vettel was in a very fast car. I think in the next few races Mclaren will cose the gap and there could be some tasty battles, lets hope so.

Cheers.

Welcome to our new forum Trixter, it’s good to have you here, please feel free to start a new topic if you wish or just join in the banter.

I couldn’t agree more with you guys either:

If you take luck out of the equation I think this sums up Lewis Hamilton.

Put Lewis in a good car and you know he will score good points or win, put him in a not so good car and you know he will at least score points or maybe get on the podium.

No other F1 driver appears to have his overtaking skill or the hunger he has to win, beat the rest and make them all look like amateurs.

I think back to Silverstone 2008, in the wet, what a race, most of the other drivers were sliding off the track, spinning and generally having a bad day but Lewis took it in his stride, didn’t really put a foot wrong and won the race easily.

I was so impressed with Lewis that day that I made a video sim of the race in GP4.

Available in HD if you have the bandwidth.

I still want to see a head to head battle with Hamilton and Button.
The closest they came to it was last year (not sure of race) when Hamilton was closing on Button near the end of a race but crashed out on final or 2nd to last lap. He was trying too hard that day but that is no critisism. His trying too hard is what us fans love about him.
I have heard people call him arrogant but I feel it is more confident in his abilities. That confidence in overtaking is what can put pressure on a lesser driver.

Now they both have the same car I can only hope...

Freddy, GP4 is an old game (2002) and was fully modable, so to make the sim run right I set the driver skills to represent the final race positions, i.e. Lewis was the best driver, I also set the top speed of the cars, as close as I could to match the cars in the real race. Oh and most of the cars were actually modeled on the 2008 season.

However all did not go to plan, so there is quite a lot of editing to give a closer to real life sim appearance.


Snowcrash, If I had to bet on a head to head with Button and Hamilton, my money would be on Hamilton.

Nice sim, very clever and proves you are a true F1 fan to take the time and effort. I would also put my money on Lewis over Button every time, dont get me wrong Button is a good driver but he is jst missing that killer instinct and speed that makes Lewis so good. I want to see Lewis against Vettel in similar machinery. Everyone raves about Vetel, he is no doubt one of the best on the grid however he has not been truly tested yet. Webber matched his pace all race long in Malaysia and I wouldnt rate Webber as a world class driver. Lewis has already beaten a 2 times champ in Alonso and is outpacing if not outscoring (not for long) Button at the moment. If Button beats Lewis this year I will be amazed.

Lewis could win this year as long as his car is up to it, but unfortunately my gut feeling thinks Vettel in the RB might clinch it, I hope Lewis proves me wrong, as like Trixter I think Lewis is the best driver on the grid.

Lewis can win this year, its early days, Mclaren will improve the car soon then, watch this space, I believe  Grin

Just wanted to say thanks to Trixter for saying nice sim and to agree with you re Button

If Button beats Lewis this year I will be amazed too, saying that I am a Button fan as well has a Hamilton fan and maybe his smooth driving style will prove useful in some races when tire ware comes into play.

Maybe im biased but to me Button and Hamilton are both top drivers and both have their strong points.

Also Button does seem to have jelled with the team now so any worries in that department have gone, it’s a level playing filed, we will see.

Cant wait till the next race, the clock is counting down.

Here’s an interesting fact:

In the first 4 races of 2010 Lewis Hamilton made 32 competitive overtakes.
