    Statistically he is better than Michael Schumacher and now should be considered the GOAT. Its time the British establishment recognise his achievement and award him a Knighthood.

    Oh great. So this means if I race with a motorbike against a couple of hapless bicycle riders for long enough I'll receive  a knighthood?

    Hamilton isn't good enough to lace Schumacher's boots and I won't even start on Senna.

    Oh come on Holle. Schumacher and Hamilton are peers.

    Both won a championship in an inferior car.. then moved to a dominant team for the remainder.

    If anything. You could say Hamilton is better because he didn't cheat to win try and win championships.

    Yes.. especially in his younger years he wasn't very personable.

    Schumacher won championships in two different teams which didn't have the best car all the time. He beat Williams in a Benetton. He won the championship in a Ferrari when they struggled until his arrival. He raced against Prost, Senna, Mansell, Piquet. Schumacher raced at a time when a win got you 10 points, not 25.

    Hamilton went to McLaren straight away whose car was so ridiculously good that he was almost able to win the championship in his first year. And when he had half-decent teammates like Button or Rosberg he didn't win the championship.

    Plus he's a right prick.

    Peers my arse.

    You're being disrespectful to Vettel and Alonso there. You can only beat what's in front of you. Verstappen in the same car would be interesting.

    Let's not forget the prick move Schumacher made on Hill to try and deny him the world championship.

    Mercedes wasnt a world beating car until Hamilton joined.

    As soon as Rosberg won the world title he pussied out defending it.

    2022 will be interesting. Lots of talented kids plus a reset.

    I do agree. I wish they'd go back to 10,8,6,5,4,3,2,1 then the 1 point for fastest lap would be relevant

    Hate to break it to you guys but Matt Wankbat is going to be knighted for the brave way he's tackled the pandemic

    OK, now tell us what you really think. :p

    But yeah, same here.  My sister's a big fan of his - it's one of only a few things about which we seriously disagree.

    If he survives the pandemic you can tell it's going to be pretty much his whole platform for his next leadership bid, the cocky little bleeder.

    My, we ARE all full of the milk of human kindness on here today, aren't we?  :D

    For me Hamilton is the greatest of all time.  Character issues?  Probably - but all top F1 drivers have them, comes with the territory.  Achievements are similar to Schumacher, but Hamilton has the edge.  Senna was a brilliant driver, but Hamilton has done it for longer.

    Why do rags like to equivocate or draw parallels when it comes to black personalities. When Rashford did the school dinner campaign, oh but he bought 5 houses, and now this with Jimmy Greaves,

    Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the richest Britain, tax exile and Brexiteer is having the Defender built in France, yet I have yet to read anything scathing on that rat.

    Easiest way to stop those rags getting mad about those things is to stop. I mean it's a nice honour and all but is it not ultimately a bit pointless?

    By what yardstick though?  TBH I've never seen much point in it myself but, if a large number of others disagree, who's to say they're "wrong"?

    Ferrari wasn't a world beating car when Schumacher went there....it took more than 3 years after his Ross Brawn and Jean Today's arrival at ferrari and they showed improvement in each year.


    Guess who Ross Brawn trusted to bring back from the dead to get Mercedes pointed in the right direction?The fact remains that in Hamilton's very first year at Merc he had a car that was ready for title contention. From his second years in the hibrid era no other car could compete on even terms with the Merc. Great drivers in other cars didn't matter. Hamilton only had to beat his team mates and Rosberg ran him pretty close even then ( Rosberg is a bit underrated). Hamilton is an elite driver no doubt...but his path to the records have been far more easier.

    For 6 out of his 7 championships Hamilton only had to beat his teammates....and Botas was no competition as Russell showed. The qualifying record for Merc over the last 8 year is unprecedented.
