Emotionally unstable because he has public hissy fits every time he's upset. What did he have, like 3 Tweets taken down this weekend alone because he can't deal with things not going his way like an adult? Not to mention he was a wrecking ball on track last season when his personal life was in the pits. Again, he's incredibly talented, but his performance on track is easily affected by his emotions/mood at the time.

Shortest pit stop aside, they did make several mistakes during Lewis' pit stops earlier in the season.

World Record - Fastest F1 Pit Stop by McLaren - YouTube
Which has a bigger impact: a pit stop of 2.6 or 14.6 seconds?




Good on them for getting it sorted, but they've thrown away a plethora of points while sitting still in the pits.

Bingo. They've done a great job as of late, but cost both Lewis and Jenson places and points earlier in the season...it was tough to watch

Should Massa stay at Ferrari? My thoughts

Yes: Massa seems to be good for car development and now that Ferrari has finally figured out their car, he provides a very good stable base and can be consistent in being a solid #2 driver. Prior to the car being sorted out it seemed as if the Ferrari was a very tail happy car, which Alonso (in his infinite talent) could man handle, but Massa just could not leading to his poor form.

No: Despite the car coming to form his lack of consistency in turning in competitive lap times is his undoing. His variation in lap times and his inability to manage the tires often ends up in him losing a few positions through out the race if all is going to plan for the other teams. Plus with him being close to the end of his career it might serve Ferrari better to find a driver with WDC material in them to help them solidify their positions in the standing in the future.

Boot Massa and find a young, cheap driver to develop and be Alonso's bitch.

Perez is a good choice. Although I'd expect after a year or two he won't be pleased being stuck as a #2.

on the Skyf1 coverage, Peter Sauber was saying that Perez should stay in the team because hes in the fastest car. over the shocked protests of the likes of Simon Lazenby and Johnny Herbet, Peter went on to make his point.

the kid was flying out there. he was faster than anyone else, although lets be real here - his tires were a bit newer than lewis' at the end but he was catching every single car hand over fist. the kid deserves a top drive, and with a bit more money; that could be the sauber.

I don't see Perez/Sauber performance at Monza translating well to the upcoming tracks that aren't all about top end. He may have been catching Hami at the end but he was on cruise control, and his tires were *much* newer than the other drivers: he stopped 9 laps later than Alonso and 10 later than Massa. And he was the only one in the points to use the medium tires at the end, so most of his speed could come down to tire strategy.

I hope Sauber proves me wrong and continues to mix it up with the front runners.

I hope McLaren goes with someone else like di Resta. I'm tired of this Hamilton drama. I really don't see him ever being consistent enough to win another championship anyway.

Button likes it there and wants to be there. But I think Hamilton over-estimates how much McLaren wants him there.

I think in 4 years, Hamilton will regret going to Mercedes. McLaren has the longest track record of building consistently championship contending cars. Mercedes may be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat in 2014...maybe. But if they don't? I don't see Lewis being happy.

I dont see Lewis going anywhere. Even with all the team mishaps (I think Hamilton has had very few on tracks, Canada last year and Maldonado this year) Hamilton recognizes that Mclaren is the only team other than Ferrari or Red Bull that will give him a chance for contending the title.

I found it amusing that a sticking point for him is possession of the actual trophies he wins.

I totally agree. I see no reason why he'd go backwards to merc. I understand the money side, but I think that he'd take a slight pay hit and stay with a team where he can win.
I also find the trophy thing interesting, but understand where he's coming from. If its an exact replica though, who cares?

I see him staying, too. I think winning is more important to him than another team paying him more.

McLaren: Hamilton trophies have never been issue

Keeping race-winning trophies has been no real factor when discussing a new contract with Lewis Hamilton. That is according to Ron Dennis, head of the McLaren Group, with his driver having requested so much earlier this season.


According to McLaren tradition, any winning driver receives a replica of their silverware whereas the original copy is kept in the team’s Woking factory. Talking to the media earlier this year, Hamilton insisted that keeping his trophies would be a major reason in whether or not he would sign a new contract. The team stresses that this is no significant demand.

“I think a lot’s been made about that, but it’s never really been an issue,” Dennis told Sky Sports after Hamilton dominated the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday.

“We’ve always been a very compromising team. We’re about winning and whoever gets something can be discussed afterwards.”

By triumphing at Monza, Hamilton becomes Fernando Alonso’s closest challenger atop the Drivers’ Championship. With seven races remaining, the margin is 37 points.
I'm no F1 driver so I can't put myself in their shoes, but that's an odd thing to quibble about. It's also very arrogant of Lewis, considering that's been the team's rule forever and, while a world champion, he's another driver that's going to come and go.

So why do they give the driver and constructor a trophy during the podium ceremony?

Exactly. It's kinda strange and goes back to the whole "Hamilton is a diva" thing. He definitely is, but I think he can be. To a point.
I also think about how long he has been with McLaren. He signed at what...14 (or whatever it is)? Why hasn't he left yet?
