I keep hearing by Hamilton fanboys that Lewis is the fastest driver on the grid. Here is the thing, in nearly 4 seasons of Formula 1 Hamilton scored a grand total of 6 FLs (which is what 1,5 per season) and driving a top car like McLaren. Just to give a comparison, Raikkonen scored 10 FLs in a single season twice (2005 & 2008). Hell even Nelson Piquet scored 7 FLs in 1986, more than Hamilton in his entire career. Mind, I am not saying Hamilton is not great driver, he most certainly is, he is great at overtaking, has great car control, he is very fast in the wet and adapts to almost all car or track conditions, just I don't think he is the fastest driver on the grid when it comes to natural speed. Opinions?

Even Nelson Piquet....the guy was a 3 time WDC.

I totally disagree. Hamilton has incredible pace.
