Hamilton is getting to arrogant to Rosberg now in the media he says ''he lacks his hunger'' i hope Rosberg beats him every race till the end of the year just to shut this bitch his mouth.


Great post, very even keeled, really adds value to the discussion.

LOL! Yeah a bit too much swearing on that post. I also think its an arrogant statement by Lewis but what can you do, at the end all that matters is who's on front.

While I agree that FerrariAlo's post wasn't the most articulate, he does have a point. Hamilton is doing himself no favors with comments like that. He needs to just get on with it and win.

And what would we be discussing if it wasn¨t for TDG¨s occasional brainbombs. Topic of 3 pages, with orgy of highfives every other weekend. It¨s LH, he is messy, he is bloody, he is an arrogant sumofabiyatch, and I love him for that.

And remember, I am the fairest of the fair fans he has. Others are much worse. Bloody maniacs, like their hero..Hooligans of Ste. Devote

Forum fan "I hate all these modern PR robotic F1 drivers, oh I miss the day of Hunt etc, real men who said exactly what was what..but I also want them to be humble, modest, respectful a bit like Clark"

 

What this really means is "I want the driver I like to say what he wants, and for which I will defend him for every word he utters and that one who I really dislike to keep quiet (yes sir, no sir) but occasionally give me the opportunity to jump on him  and analyse every single word, showing what a nasty individual he is".

If Nico gets as wound up as some on here...... nah, I think he's more sensible than that!

I see Autosport now reporting the latest, a day late, without attributing to any of their own staff- naturally as it's not theirs. A prime piece of click bait! If Lewis keeps talking the outraged folks will soon have to pay Autosport to be even more outraged!  ;)

Look at all  the greats in motor racing

 

Rossi

Senna

Schumacher

 

You really think they gave a s**t what people thought?

 

Ham can say what he like as long as he delivers on track.

 

He's won 4 races in a row, I wouldnt change anythign he's doing right now.

 

Haters going o hate

Hamilton fans going to enjoy.

 

People do know that all the Hamilton fans gather in big groups late at night in the woods and feed off the butthurt Hamilton detractors.

It's nothing.  Just something for people who already have something against him to latch onto and reward the greedy and dishonest spin from Autosport.

 

In actuality he said the hunger is different.  Not more.

undersquare is right. If you actually read the article, Lewis never says that he is hungier than Rosberg or that Nico lacks hunger. He just says it's different. Don't just read the headline, read the whole article and most importantly, the direct quotes.

he did say it was different in the f1.com interview.

 

 

Let me tell you this: I come from a not-great place in Stevenage and lived on a couch in my dad’s apartment - and Nico grew up in Monaco with jets and hotels and boats and all these kind of things - so the hunger is different. I want to be the hungriest guy in the cockpit from all 22 of us - even if every driver has to believe that he’s the hungriest - because if I were to come here believing that Nico is hungrier than me then I might as well go home. So I’ve got to be the hungriest - to win the world championship you need to be the hungriest.

Lol some of these posts are straight up pathetic. People to thin skined these days , thats why the whole world is in a friggin state. Anyway Lewis's comments are abit controversial but shit happens. He doesn't like to shy away from from certain questions if its personal . He told it how it was (in his mind ) with out the the PC. If some people can't accept his opinion then your the type of person who can't see two sides of the coin. His comments shook a nerve in the upper class people in this forum , simple as that.

Well sorry if i was a bit rude, but my point is that he described nico as a really good friend of him. but all i see him do the last few weeks is throwing arrogancy towards Nico for no reason, i think Sutil knows this friendship thingy with Hamilton all too well :D

Bear in mind that those who don't think he should have said it, also think so because they feel it'd be better for him to have not said it from a 'not wanting a war of words that may backfire', point of view, not just the pc rubbish. I'm not sure turning this 'situation' with Nico into a feud any quicker than it has to is the right thing for him going forward hoping to win the championship.

The only hunger we should be concerned about is that of the Kraken. Line up, we need another sacrifice I am sure I saw Alonso topping the times.

This thread is hiring on all cylinders now!

Lewis is by far the most entertaining driver on the grid. I am savoring every drop of attention, criticism, and praise he is getting. He is a lightening rod he is shaking what is the established, stuffy, good old boys club that is f1. Folks hate his tattoos, his hair, his hats, his friends, his lady, his story, his passion, and they way he makes detractors look a fool.

It provides me with great discussion and interesting insight into European sensibilities.

So when Nico says he is faster than Lewis he is not arrogant but when Lewis says he is hungry differently he is arrogant. I hope Nico really gets wound up even worse than his fans.

Yea good point mark i should of mentioned that. The media really are trying to light the fuse between these two. I guarantee those newspapers will be plasting that quote in the sport pages as we speak. Ahh nothing will ever change with those clowns. However as you said Lewis just about took the bait but only a little bit bu then again thats all it takes to open pandora box.

Well when Nico says it, it's an informed, intellectual statement based on empirical evidence yet to be discovered by human beings, *spoiler* (The Nico Rosberg Effect - coming second in a two horse race yet being accepted almost universally, except by the stopwatch, as being the quicker). Whereas when Lewis says it .....

This was probably filmed a little while ago, but coming to Monaco (specifically for the Grand Prix) must have put his life into real perspective.

Anyway

 

Watching P2 today underlined that Lewis really does have an aura about him at the moment, quite similar to what Seb had last year. The commentators tone changes a bit when Lewis is on a hot lap, like it is almost a formality that he will net the fastest time. Even a cynic like myself has a lot more confidence in Lewis's ability than I did 6 months ago (this is relative to Nico). 

 

Despite Alonso going quicker in P2, Lewis looked okay from the little track time he had. He seems to be very strong in sector 2, where I believe he was quickest this morning (I only saw the highlights of P1 as I was in bed)

 

For now, I am leaning towards Lewis getting pole on Saturday, and the win on Sunday.

How dare you. 

 

(Sorry that was an excellent post and the part bolded is certainly not what should be focused on, but I couldn't help myself). (apparently you didn't see my memo about picking Nico. Pick Nico, Lewis will get pole. Rinse. Repeat.)
