    Funny how everyone saying Lewis should be given a knighthood he don’t even live in the uk he lives in Monaco yes it’s purely for tax reasons but can someone be knighted if they don’t live in the uk I’m not sure as for his driving he does indeed deserve one he is one hell of a driver makes every team mate he drove with look amateur

    Toto obviously forgetting that Hammy was trying to downplay the contract because of the worlds current COVID problems meaning millions of people are at the breadline or out of work. The last thing he wanted was for his MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of dollars to be shoved down their throats. Credit to Hammy for at least trying to appear humble, and then Toto is an idiot and blows it, thus reminding everyone why Mercedes are so hated.

    They've got the best car. So they don't actually need to break the bank to keep the better of their two drivers in the team. If you replaced Lewis Hamilton with me, Mercedes would still win the WDC easily with Bottas. Their advantage is enormous.

    Mercedes is simply brilliant this season and Lewis fits the team like a glove . Good to see that the driver knows very well the importance of both the outfit and the teams of mechanics behind him are the reason he is where he is of course with his great talent too.

    @Moe Lester We always underestimate what Lewis Hamilton can do: I think he should be given the same opportunity Vettel was given, and we'll see what he can do. Give him a chance with @Redbullracing, @ScuderiaFerrari, @McLaren, anyone who is willing and able to pay @LewisHamilton the wages of a unique superstar. Lewis Hamilton is just reaching his his greatest abilities, and Toto Wolff, who has been griping about money, even failing to pay Lewis hundreds of millions less than Vettel who never won a world championship for Ferrari. Come on!

    You know nothing at all about business and paying tax, yes he lives in Monaco but he also has home in the UK and still pays alot if tax due to income also coming from uk so he does pay tax, also nearly all the formula 1 drivers live in Monaco , button, coulthard as well but that's not an the real issue though is it. Whether you like him or not you still watch it and then complain after. Lewis has more Twitter, Facebook followers than all the f1 drivers put together, max is probably second and he's nowhere near Lewis. When he's gone alot if people who watch just for him may stop watching and F1, Mercedes knows this

    Lots for Lewis to talk about in his next contract. One of his concerns is the budget cuts and the long race calendar in 2021 with 23 races. Obviously he will want more money for more races plus many more issues we are not aware about. He may throw in the towel at the end of 2023.

    Hamilton is not the GOAT, he is the most successful F1 driver of his generation. He can only establish the title of Greatest of when he retires from the sport. As for the contract, Lewis already indicated that he was ready to sign a 3yr deal earlier in the year but the money aspect wouldn't be as high when he officially becomes 7th World Champion. And at the time when people are losing their jobs, he didn't wanna have his name associated with the idea that his new contract would become public knowledge. So a deal has already been down, its just a matter of the fee which is reportedly around £120 million. Crazy sum to pay a driver who may may not perform to the same levels in 2021 or beyond if it's a 3yr deal when Mercedes can easily land Verstappen for a fraction of that cost especially with the F1 teams budget cap coming into 2021 season.

    It would be a shame for Lewis Hamilton to achieve all that success and they do not properly compensate him - nobody debated Michael Schumacher becoming a billionaire, back when there were only a few millionaires. Perhaps Ferrari deserves some wins, after paying Vettel hundreds of millions for nothing: Let Ferrari get some wins from Lewis, while Lewis Hamilton can guarantee that. Ferrari with Lewis Hamilton and Hilfiger, etc. would almost be like a monopoly. Let Toto Wolff keep his inventories- he will need them, if Ferrari ever wakes up to the mighty change of fortune that Lewis Hamilton can bring to the whole Ferrari empire.

      Actually the Hamster didn't want to sign a new deal while COVID was going on because he realised announcing a huge million dollar bumper pay packet while most of the world was struggling to pay their rent was a very bad idea. Oh, and nobody buys a Mercedes because of Hammy, most of the world doesn't give two flying F's about F1 or him, they probably got more publicity from Hitler driving around in one.

    Jessie Norman, Count Basie, Ornette Coleman, Ella Fitzgerald, Rembrandt, Picasso, Dame Margot Fontaine, Rumi, all maestro status; Lewis Hamilton is now in the same territory. Interestingly his magnum opus is unfinished - wow! Imola next! Classic race tracks have so much class. F1 must evolve! The FIA must know its place, because it is not bigger than the sport and its fans worldwide! Unlike Hamilton & Wolff, the current FIA is too bumptious, without modesty combined with creative finesse.

      @P K You're not a BLM advocate. Also, Lewis calls himself black because he is treated like a black person and if we're honest, most of white society believes in the one drop rule. If you have one drop of black blood you cannot be counted as white. As for identifying as mixed, his white side isn't recognised by other people. They called him a black driver throughout his career.

      @wayne1da Well then this will be my last reply then and just to remind you that it is you who is coming with speculation "ask any ex racer and they will tell you the same" pure speculation unless you have asked all the ex racers, and I doubt you have asked any. The facts are Riciardo beat Verstappen, they could both have improved, you don't KNOW who is better it is your opinion that Max is better and mine that he is a bit of an unknown as his teammates have unequal machinery (again not speculation as was confirmed be redbull).

    • wayne1da

      wayne1da

      Maand geleden

      @Ben Robinson When Riciardo was beating Max Verstappen, Max was still the the quicker driver in qualifying and the race. Quote Lewis Hamilton when asked about the red bull drivers. "One is quicker and the other is more consistent" Being that Max was faster you apply logic. Logic says as he mutures and the mistakes disappear he will be the better driver. Thats what we are seing today. Must I remind you Danny ric is my absolute favorite driver in F1. But it is what it is and wont compromise facts just to be a fanboy. As I've already said Danny is a top driver and is capable of winning a title, but he's not better then Max. I know this, and if you asked any ex F1 driver or cometators or anybody they will tell you the same. You should try very hard not to @me as I already know you will come back eith speculation and not facts. Been watching F1 since 1985 and have missed no more then 10 races in that time. I see paterns and history mostly repears itself. I know this sport back to front so dont waste your time with me. If you were correct I would not have bothered to respond.

      @wayne1da usually teams favour the one that is winning, Verstappen was favoured because he is the formula 1's golden boy because of family connections. Bernie Eccleston always expressed that he wanted Verstappen to win the championship. Vettel is getting different treatment because he was ignoring team orders and publicly critising Ferreri, and is leaving. Hamilton is the most successful driver ever but he doesn't get extra advantage, in fact his engineers and data were given to both Rosberg and Bottas which helped both of them improve. It's not speculation. Helmut Marco said they were using different parts on Albon's car, then look at Gasly's results since he left the main team, obvious he didn't have the same car as Max also.

    Yeah, imagine if they couldn't keep Hamilton for whatever reason and ended up with a driver less capable than bottas 😬 tbh things would be a lot more interesting.

      A Knighthood should be given to those that help others or our country as a whole not for ones own achievements. Hamilton is IMO and probably will be statistically will be the greatest f1 driver of all time so far but it’s not worthy of a knighthood.

    I believe he needs some more competition from his Mercedes team mate, would love to see some like Max. How he left Bottas 25 seconds behind him says it all for me. Bottas will never beat him with the same car, only keeping him to keep Lewis happy

      @Arv C I agree, its true that Max has a way about him that would rub everyone at Mercedes including Lewis the wrong way. But to be honest, I think it would be one of the best seasons of F1 if they were both fighting it out on the front row. Lets not forget how Max is constantly coming 3rd in that Red Bull, even winning however rare that is.

      Max reminds me of young Vettel. He was made to look good by having the all the attention on himself and leading races but once he started fighting toe-to-toe he was found out. Put Max in the middle of the pack and you will see whereas the likes of Hamilton, Schumacher, Senna, Alonso, Richardo and even Montoya will always shine with their craft.

    Tbh the final contract after all you've achieved & given to the brand will always to a tough one + also covid. Also little things like which cars he gets to keep, future partnerships etc....Either way its clear Lewis is 100% a Merc man & likes what they're doing with the wider business re suitability/electric cars. Only a matter of time.

      ​@Garvit Jain Ah right, most rumours started after he publicly said he loved Ferrari so thought you meant that. But Yh, he's got a La Ferrari which looks unreal but I think everyone would get one if they could, unreal investment & hard af to get...stll don't know how he got his. Company wise he's a Merc man, even his McLaren days were part Merc funded & he met all the Daimler CEO's/ex & current before he even started F1 so the history is there.

    Let's see if he gets a Knighthood like he should have got a long time ago like he deserves. He represents the UK in 20+ countries every year and when you think about 92 wins, that's 92 times the British anthem and flag has been raised and played in other countries as well as the UK. That achievement needs to be honoured. If that was anyone else they would have got it already

      A knighthood? Are you actually joking 😹 look...Lewis Hamilton is a very talented fantastic driver one of the best of this era. But people forget the fact he drives the best fastest advanced car on the track and driver for the most advanced team in F1, a good driver is nothing and will achieve nothing without a good car, it’s the cars that win the races. If you put another talented driver in the car Lewis drives they will achieve all that Lewis has. A knighthood is a joke surly 😹

      @Tigerburningbright If you think Bottas is bad, what do you think of Verstappen's team mates? Hamilton made Button look this bad at times as well as Rosberg. Off the top of my head- Canada 2012 (Button lapped on pure pace) and Malaysia 2014 (Rosberg 30s behind on pure pace, worse than Bottas today). Seems to me that alot of people either have short memory, selective memory or they are just F1 casuals. Think about it- if Bottas had an Albon as his team mate he'd be looking like the man right now- which goes to prove that F1 has *always* been about the car *and* driver combination since 1950.

      @King of All Kings xx Cars have nothing to do with it. Just like in other sports for example football, because great footballers play in great teams doesn't take away from the fact that they are the best in what they do. Take Pele, Messi or Ronaldo for example, they have won great accolades during their career and nobody ever mention them playing in a great team to diminish their achievements. With the same logic, you have to be the best to deserve a shot of being part of a great team. With that said, Hamilton has won more and broken records of all those drivers you listed. It's a fact, hence the greatest.
