Default WTF, Hamilton?!?!?!

Red light means stop in the UK, doesn't it?

Lewis doesn't make very many mistakes, but when he does, boy, he makes them count. Beaching the car on pit entry in China last year (throwing away his WDC), ramming into Kimi this year.... These are rookie mistakes, and I guess it makes some sense that a 23-year-old kid in his 2nd year of F1 might make them -- but Lewis normally drives like a seasoned veteran in his prime.

I can't say I was completely upset, though. I'd picked Kubica in my fantasy F1 to win, and I knew once Kimi and Lewis were out, he had a really good chance. That's two races in a row now, where I picked the winner plus a good points-earner. Watch out Cory, I'm catching up!

Yeah, seems Canada is always good for a crazy race.

Boy, what a different race for both Hamilton and Kubica. Last year, Kubica had that horrible accident and Hamilton had his first win. This year, Kubica gets his first win and Hamilton makes the 2nd worst mistake in his career.


I'm running out of good A and B drivers too. I already used up Ferrari and Raikkonen (actually, that doesn't look like such a bad thing anymore). I originally had BMW picked for my team in Canada, but then I thought Kubica was a bit of a longshot, so in order to hedge my bets, I switched to McLaren. Doh!

Remember not to choose Hamilton or Rosberg for France!

In the UK, they have mostly roundabouts and not too many stoplights! My theory is that his body and mind got used to driving fast and they had a lapse of concentration because of the slow pitlane speeds.....

The rest of the season will be interesting when you start running out of good drivers. It's gonna be best of the rest! I'm hoping Renault get their act together...

I used to not be a Hamilton fan...and no Pres. Carter it's not because he's black!

I just thought he didn't pay his dues and trudge along at the beginning of his career in an uncompetitive car. Sort of a character building stage, or an F1 initiation. This year he's shown a lot of character by racing from the back of the pack to get points, patting his pit crew on the back when they needed it, really pushing during races and generally never giving up.
