Which other F1 driver poses like that? It is like from some cheap book cover, or something. He's not a driver, he's a model. Oh well, at least Boy Band Button is still better. :p


I think your just pissed off that Raikkonen is the World Champion and yet Lewis Hamilton is the superstar of Formula 1. Get used to it, the guy is marketable for a million reasons and the fans seem to love him, sponsors the same. Bernie loves him, no one was more pissed off when Kimi nicked the title from LH and that says everything really.

There is nothing better for F1 than a marketable and personable World Champion. Kimi that ain't. Lewis it will be.

I'm a fan of those Tag Heuer ad's. Kimi still is with Tag Heuer I think even though he's not a McLaren driver anymore. :up:

Really? Will it be this year, or what have your crystal balls told you?

sometime in the future. You do realise he was runner up last year?

I find it hard to comprehend why people insist on ignoring the inevitable. Ok, I know, Stirling Moss and Gilles Villeneuve to name 2 were never World Champion but I really can't see the same happening with Lewis. For one, he's with a top team. For another, he's already proven to be a major player. We always knew with a reliable, fast car that Raikkonen would do it. Didn't you?

Thats just it. I think there are more then 3 drivers on the grid capable of winning the championship, other then Hamilton. The odds are not necessarily for OR against him, unless of course you have crystal balls.

I don't think that it is "given" at all, that Hamilton WILL be a WDC. It will much depend on his car, and that of the opposition over the years.

If the McLaren goes the way that Honda have done the last few years, Lewis might never win a title with them. He's a great driver, but he needs the car (and the luck) to take the title. There's as much chance of him leaving F1 in the future having never won the title - ala Moss - as there is him leaving with plenty of titles - ala Schumacher. We'll just have to wait and see :up:

Boy, you are trying everything to discredit Kimi's closest rival in 2008. I am glad that Kimi does not resort to your tactics.

Great pics by pup and DriveFastLiveSlow :up: HSJ - is Kimi a model too or a driver?

From my eyes Lewis had the car to challenge last year(as well as a substantial points lead) and he lost so it goes to say that if he doesn't have the car to challenge this year he will lose again, he just won't blow a substantial points lead in the last two races. We will also have to read the endless pablum about how its the car and not lewis and if he had this and that he would be WDC.

Here's a novel, crazy reply:

I think Hamilton is going to be one of the greatest drivers, ever; based on nothing more than watching how he drives

You'd think some of you guys were playing baseball sports trivia at the bar - you want to talk about Alonso RBI's versus Raikkonen stolen bases??

Watch how he drives.
