    Quiet simple he has been in the same team, working with the same people, in the same environment for a while now. That alone goes along way, but on top of that he has the experience, the skills and the car underneath him. Add all that together there is your answer. 80% of the field would win in Lewis’s car but would they win a championship is the question.

    Thank you Mr. Brundle for pointing out that one of the main reasons that car so good is because Lewis understands how to communicate to his team what the car needs. Schumacher and Lauda were also famous for that. When did that AMG team become dominant? Roughly, when Lewis showed up in the team with Lauda as a mentor

    I think he’s good because he aims to win...every time. His mentality is much stronger now than it used to be, he’s always had the talent and self belief, but he needs to win. I honestly don’t think he would ever settle for just doing well in the mid-field. Max is utterly brilliant, talent-wise, but he lets his emotions get the better of him. Lewis is the consummate professional

    I think F1 has always had a bit of an identity crisis. At its core, F1 is a constructors championship but the media and most fans treat it as a drivers championship. This is the main cause of the never ending car vs. driver argument.

      In Lewis's first year in F1 he was taking on a multiple world champion in the same car, and winning. Lewis has only ever improved since then. Meanwhile Verstappen was nicknamed crashstappen in his first couple of years in F1. Meanwhile Leclerc is the new crash prone hothead. Verstappen and Leclerc have the potential to match Lewis, it's just taking them much longer to get up to speed.

    I'm not his biggest fan by any means but if you can equal and surpass someone like Schumachers record but be absolutely fair and be trusted to race side by side in any situation you are the better driver by definition surely? Maybe it's just a British hang up about fair play and all that but I don't think we'd revere Moss, Clark, Hill(s), Stewart, Button etc as much if they'd been ruthless drivers willing to stick a team mate in the wall...

      The car is 90% sure. But Lewis was outclassing a multiple world champion in the same car, in his very first year, and has only improved since then. Meanwhile Russell already has more experience than that period, so I'd expect him to beat Bottas at least.

    Best driver on the grid? I am a Lewis fan and George's performance last week pretty much ended those type of discussions in my opinion. Literally it seems any F1 driver could hop in Lewis's car and instantly contend for the win. Not saying Hamilton isn't great just that it appears the car is 99% of the equation and I was hoping it would not be that much.

    I wanted George Russell in the car this weekend for the exposure and experience it would give him, that’s Lewis simply doesn’t need. Lewis could have very easily have lost to Vettel the season before last, the Ferrari was the better car. However it was Lewis that held his nerve and made the right choices at the right time and Vettel bottled it... All said I think majority would have loved to have seen George in the merc this weekend.

      George had a great race but Bottas was coming back on him on that second stint before the pit stop mess up. The reason why you cant compare that one race is because Hamiltons has beaten all of his team mates 3 of them world champion , one as a rookie overall. He's been so consistent and dominant his whole career. I hope George becomes a world champion but lets not compare one race to 13 years of achievements in F1.

    Lewis is the greatest F1 driver of all time. He misses one weekend because of illness and Mercedes have an absolute shocker. Bottas is lucky to even have his seat considering he has the best car on the grid and finishes outside the top 3 most of the time.

    Oh this perpetual myth of the only 2 men to beat Lewis Hamilton, said as if Nico Rosberg & Jensen Button raised their performances to a level Lewis could not match....... Reality tells a different story though: In 2016 Points: Hamilton 380 Rosberg 385 Poles: Hamilton 12 Rosberg 8 Wins: Hamilton 10 Rosberg 9 Podiums: Hamilton 17 Rosberg 16 Points finish: Hamilton 19 Rosberg 20 DNF’s: Hamilton 2 Rosberg 1 WDC: Hamilton 2nd Rosberg 1st Hamilton v Button 2010 to 2012 Overall Points: Hamilton 657 Button 672 Wins: Hamilton 10 Button 8 Ahead when both cars finished: Hamilton 24 Button 13 Ahead in race inc DNF: Hamilton 32 Button 26 DNF: Hamilton 13 Button 8 Pole: Hamilton 9 Button 1 Front row starts: Hamilton 23 Button 9 Out qualified: Hamilton 44 Button 14 So yes on points they just about managed to beat Lewis but not through some great leap of inner strength or mental mind games, if it were not for those DNF’s, those drivers would not have beaten Lewis.
