    Lewis Hamilton is one of the five greatest champions in Formula 1 history, says Fernando Alonso.

    "It is difficult to compare different times and different ways to win those championships," said the Spaniard, who tied on points with Hamilton when they were McLaren team-mates in 2007, with both men finishing one point behind title winner Kimi Raikkonen.

    "Lewis probably winning five now, same as Fangio, it is a great achievement, and if one had to do it in our generation, I am happy it is him.

    "He showed the talent and commitment. When the car was dominating he won and when it wasn't he still put in performances to show his talent. That is difficult to see these days."

    Hamilton is the only driver to win a race in every year he competed in F1.

    Alonso said: "He showed the talent from day one and fighting for the championship in his rookie year, winning in 2008.

    "I am happy for him because he showed the talent from day one, he was able to win races when the car was able to win it, but also able to win when the car was not on top of the form, he still won some races, it is impressive."

    Re: 2018 United States F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    It's really very interesting that since the second sensor at the battery management has been applied @Ferrari they aren't dominant at all anymore!?

    Until then they had an power advantage which allowed them to race with higher downforce what helped them to be as quick as others on the straights but much faster in corners.mail

    Since a few races the new (additional) sensor is mounted and...no more race wins and/ or pole positions anymore for Ferrari/ SV.yes

    And as they've now to race with much more "efforts" on top of this their tyre degradation has become huge and so the lost out to Mercedes/ LH & VB.

    It was so obvious that Ferrari was cheating but finally FIA closed "this loophole" and the miracle of "Ferrari's resurrection" is finally over! kiss

    And out of a sudden the "great Sebastian" is making so many mistakes and has been proving that under pressure he isn't pair to real race drivers/ champions (or soon to be champions) like LH, MV, DR & FA.

    Even NR was much more flawless than SV and this guy took his one in a life time chance to grab the title from Lewis just by chance as he had less technical failures than him...

    Hopefully CL will kick ass next year and SV's time @Ferrari is over as he hasn't been delivering at all.

    F1 shoots itself in the foot again.  Any semblance of even minor drama reduced again.  Seems like the only drama left is a rain filled qualification.


    Re: 2018 United States F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    A rule is a rule, doesn’t matter if a Torro Rosso driver breaks it or a Ferrari driver breaks it. Now they finally put some creditibility back into the series.

    No matter how, Ferrari will always lament. Smiley

    Re: 2018 United States F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Don’t disagree.  Just sad to see that that drama from the beginning of the season didn’t continue through the second half as Ferrari wilted under the consistent Merc onslaught. 


    Re: 2018 United States F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    So pleased for Kimi..

    Vett again, silly spin but then great drive. That was a opportunity to gain serious point with Kimi’s pace, shame.

    Mad Max,, what a driver. Fastest dude on the grid...

    Great race today!  Seb was still Seb and Kimi’s win was stellar.

    Happy for Kimi; he, on the other hand, did not betray much happiness
