Yes I can blame Kimi, Romain has shown that even in the first race of the season the Lotus in the hands of a rookie was good enough to qualify third, and in Hungary he looked very fast until he went slower in Q3 than he did in Q2. The fact is he's been unable to perform in qualifying, and you attempts to place the blame on the car are overturned by his rookie team mate's performance in the same car.
If you think Hamilton can't adapt to the tyres you should rewatch Barcelona where he was the only driver to pull of a two stop, and the fact that he appears to manage the tyres better than his WDC team mate who is known for being smooth and looking after his tyres, he even spoke abouut changing his style in the race and inducing understeer to make the tyres last. I'll say it again, the characteristics of the engine affect tyre wear and the Renault with its cutting of cylinders has an advantage of the Mercedes engine powered cars in that area.
No actually its been factors outside of his control, such as being disqualified from pole because his team didn't put in enough fuel (just read my sig for the rest), the only times I've really seen the McLaren struggle for pace is at Bahrain, Monaco, and Valencia which are all tracks that highlight the McLaren's weakness in slow corners and on traction.
Hamilton a narrow operating range? Do you have an evidence to support such a theory particularly because he's a driver Alonso has acknowledged as being able to get the maximum and more than the maximum out of the car.
Mclaren lack of tractions??? thats the lamest excuses ever~~ do you know how he got pole in barcelona?? thanks to the 3rd sectors full of slow corners!! try something better m8
LMAO, Alonso can do nothing more than acknowledge him as he was beaten by lewis!! If he said lewis aint good, indirectly hinting he wasnt good either!! Have enough of alonso 's mind games throughout his career!! In fact lewis has only driven half season on a bad car and as deserve, he was poor!! Only after massive upgrades from mclaren lewis start winning races in 2009, and at the same time, kimi whose car already halted development in mid season, only scored 1 point lesser than lewis in 2nd half of the season with a win and 5 podiums!! Lewis is famous of poor race pace~~ nth to do with adapbility!!
