I found this to be quite remarkable and genuinely inspiring. He put this together unbelievably well, impromptu. He's obviously thought about his journey through life very long and hard.

Kudos.

Impressive, I liked the bit, "What are those scruffy black guys doing here?" clearly means a lot to him. A good find thanks.

Yep. Of course its not just about the numbers but at whatever stat you look at it is clear that Hamilton is now near the top of every list, 3rd in most world championships, 2nd most wins, most pole positions and 4th most fastest laps, 11 successive seasons with at least a win in that season.

As I said it is not just about the numbers of course but those numbers are something you have to give him credit for.

Sir Lewis Hamilton? Nigel Mansell doesn't seem too opposed to the idea.

https://talksport.com/motorsport/lewis- ... itle-nigel

Sadly these days knighthoods are handed out like sweets to whichever sportsperson happens to be flavour of the month and I find it excessive to be honouring those who are still competing. In my mind for a sportsperson it's supposed to represent a lifetime of achievement and/or achievements that transcend their sport. Having said that, if Andy Murray deserves one then consistency surely dictates that Hamilton does.

On another point it's great to see Mansell recognising what Hamilton has achieved. It's welcome change from the constant sniping you get from Jackie Stewart; his interview with Brundle on the Mexican GP grid was frankly embarrassing.

Hamilton currently has the same order of merit as Susie Wolf. One can only assume she was awarded her MBE for services to marrying well?

This reminds me of the time I was testing at a kart track, I was racing there the following Sunday, late in the day a white transit van drove past me in the paddock, it was the Hamiltons, I was aware of Lewis because he had recently signed for McLaren and at that time he would have been 13 years old, they would have been testing the following day and racing that weekend.

As they drove past I stared because I was thinking that's Lewis Hamilton, they never looked at me but just stared straight ahead, maybe they classed me as one of those people?

I think if they are going to do it they should wait until his F1 career is over, I would find it a bit cringe worthy him doing interviews and being addressed as Sir Lewis.

Is his contribution to motorsport any less than Sir Jackie Stewart I wonder? What did JS say on the grid then, I only saw the post match interview where he generally praised the achievement saying it was a far bigger achievement to win multiple titles than simply one trophy.

A nice compilation of the first half of the season

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dp9au7kz2wY

A reminder of how nip and tuck it was between Hamilton and Vettel

Indeed, I think Hamilton values a teammate who is not deceptive.

Is this Lewis?



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ScJ0BUDc6Y


From 2:38 onwards


Apparently this track is co-written by Lewis and that verse sounds almost exactly like Lewis.


This is all from reddit so I could be wrong.

Maybe that's why he hasn't re-signed yet. Waiting to see if he has a viable career in music to go on to.

Does that explain Aguilera being at a recent GP?

It does sound like him so fair play he can sing reasonably well.

Is this good I wouldn't know, it's not my kind of music?

Recently I’ve gotten the vibe from him that he doesn’t enjoy racing as much as he used to do and likes doing other things more.

Mind you, I’m not judging Lewis at all. At the end of the day, the guy should do what makes him happy.

Lewis is a man of many interests. I do agree that he doesnt sound nor look as into it as he was last year. Moreover if he truly feels that Merc has fallen behind Ferrari that will surely make that next contract less enticing to sign.

It does sound a little like him but there is a lot of autotune there... suggests to me that he can't really sing at all. Given that he's credited as a co-writer and this XNDA character is an unknown identity I'd say it's fairly likely that it is him.

Fair enough if that's what he wants to do outside of racing. I don't think it's indicative of a lack of focus, the drivers don't spend every hour of every day devoted to racing and they all have their outside hobbies and commitments. Some of them go as far as raising children, which to some people is considered less of a distraction than recording some music.

I think that's a case of if you think that Hamilton is performing below his best then that's him losing interest, I don't see him losing interest.

I think he tends to sound a bit down when he's not winning, which some may interpret as losing interest in F1. After he won Spain he was full of the joys of life again. Doubtless things will change after his next win

Yes it's exactly that and actually the opposite of losing interest.

So Lewis was asked in the press conference to comment on Vettel making lots of mistakes and he said this:

LH: I’m not really going to get into that. Honestly, I know what you’re saying but it is really a racing incident in turn one and those things can happen. We’re all going into that first corner at great speeds, it’s not always easy to… I mean I went deep and wide because I saw them really close to me so I thought I was going to get rear-ended, to be honest, so I went quite deep. No, I don’t feel that he’s particularly made more mistakes than… we’re all on the edge, we’re fighting for the World Championships, we’re not pootling around, we’re out there putting our lives on the line, we’re out there putting the cars as far beyond the edge as we can in the safest manner. It’s not like a train track, you don’t just stay on the rails. Sometimes you can go off. We’re only human.

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/french-gp-post-race-press-conference-1047456/

which I thought deserves a mention. He could have tried to stick the boot in, which tbh I thought he might do, particularly in light of the comments he made about the penalty being too lenient, but I thought the way he answered the question was both respectful and classy. Nic e one :thumbup:

Classy indeed.

The Vettel incident has basically been blown out of proportion because of what Verstappen said in his wish to shift focus away from his own driving.

That may be right, but Lewis has been a master in mind games in the past. The fact that he didn't take this high ball is kudos for him. Very classy answer to a cheeky question that was hunting for a story

Has Verstappens's comments really blown the incident out of proportion? Hamilton was certainly having his say after the race. Vettel locked up and ruined another drivers race, he also lost himself points in a close title battle between him and Hamilton. For these reasons alone the incident is talked about, fans love a title fight and any incident will be a big talking point.

Bottas got away scot-free when he took out Raikkonen in both Spain and Baku last year. Mercedes are complaining about nothing as per usual, just like when they were throwing around false accusations about Ferrari cheating with their battery (which also proved to be false).

Podcasts are not everyone's cup of tea, but this is the first in the series of 'Beyond the Grid', the new official F1 podcast. Haven't listened to it yet, but I expect Hamilton will manage to upset a few with what he says.

Not sure what you think he will upset people with. The worst part for me was the intro with all that "sending positivity out to you" stuff, overall seemed pretty chilled and uncontroversial I felt.

Not sure what you think he will upset people with. The worst part for me was the intro with all that "sending positivity out to you" stuff, overall seemed pretty chilled and uncontroversial I felt.[/quote

The way it was sold; 'beyond' and so forth. Expecting something controversial or some insight or gossip we don't usually get. Still listening to it, about 20 mins in, but from what I've heard it basically a lot more in depth than we usually get; and as you say pretty chilled. Quiet good though, looking forward to the rest in the series.

Well, as someone who listened to the whole podcast, I thought it was fantastic.

He talks about Roscoe's modelling career, calling his ex-school teachers who couldn't believe in him a word I cannot say on this forum as it'll be deleted lol, how he feels lucky, what his plans are after racing, why he doesn't feel that he needs to come back to F1, his approach to live, explains why he is always jetting around the world and how that mindset has helped his racing.

It's really a non PR piece. Something that us fans have wanted to hear more regularly.
