The American GP of 2014


Looking forward to this one, it's an excellent track for overtaking and is sure to deliver plenty of excitement.

Hamilton and Rosberg dominate free practice, no surprise there but Hamilton came out on top with a massive 0.003 second lead.  Grin

Go get em Lewis  driving

Re: The American GP of 2014


Well done Lewis, your 10th win of the season and now the most wins of any British driver ever with 32, can't be bad.  worship

Just two more races to go ..


Quote from Lewis:

Quote
"What an incredible place this is to go racing. We have such great support here and I have to say a massive thanks to the fans who have been awesome all weekend. I'm really grateful to have had the opportunity to be out front here. It's a very special feeling to have such an amazing car, an amazing team and to be on this incredible run. It's been an unbelievable job from the team all year so a big thanks to everyone here at the track and at the factories back home. We managed to correct the problems from qualifying today which was great and I pushed as hard as I could.

"For the overtake, I just stayed as close as possible to Nico and waited for the moment to be just close enough to throw it up the inside. This is a good circuit to be able to follow another car but it's still not easy. You have to judge the risk in these situations but I felt confident I could pull it off. Once I got past Nico, it was just about controlling the race. I'm very, very proud to now hold the record for the most Formula One wins for a British driver. I have to say, though, it's all thanks to the team and the car we have this year that I've been able to reach that landmark so quickly. Ten wins in a season is just... well, wow!"

Been doing some math(s). If Nico wins the next 2 and Lewis comes 2nd, Lewis still wins by 3 points.

That's good to know.

There is no doubt in my mind who has been the best driver this year.

Re: The American GP of 2014


To be fair the championship doesn't always go to the best driver in any given year, quite often it goes to the most consistent driver.

I'll be honest I personally don't read too much into this "most number of X" type of list, I would be more interested to see how many wins in how many races, I suspect that Jim Clark would lead the list on that basis, Lewis is benefited by there being 18 or so races a year, back in that days of Stewart & Clark there were a lot less championship races in a year.

Re: The American GP of 2014


I take your point about consistency, 10 race wins out of 17 (so far this year) seems pretty consistent and when you consider Hamilton was also let down by his car on a few occasions this year too.

Lets not forget Hamilton still has years ahead of him, ok maybe you don't rank him up there with Stewart & Clark ( I do)  but give it time. Hamilton 'can win six championships'

Hamilton is an extremely fit athlete I'm not sure the same can be said for the drivers of the old days with their fags booze and women, no wonder there were less races  lol

So to me a race win is a race win, a hard fight from start to finish, it doesn't matter how many seasons the wins took they are all wins.
