Just another one of his arrogant gestures that blew up in his face.

I'm a fan of Lewis but he's let himself down and should learn some manners, he's obviously surrounded by 'yes men' he clearly needs to grow up, Jenson and Damon are true gents and I think would never dream of doing something like that.

Hey man cut the kid some slack, he's a wrapper don chano.. someone should've wrapped him up good and proper,.... then he wouldn't look like a proper jerk O..

Typical of any kid living on its own, not many brains cells tell you things when you comb ya hair or have a scratch with a blade whilst looking into the MIrror..!

sad really, possibly all the cells are connected to his feet and reactions..! its all down to character, and he doesn't appear to have one yet..

What is worth remembering is that LH is half white, yet he concentrates on accentuating his black half.

Well possibly he is about the most constantly winning F1 Driver, so thats the part connected with this thread, but sadly who still aint grown into an adult thinking person.

So in all "yes" it is to do with F1...

constantly winning
Constantly whining is more appropriate.

Why do I get the feeling that Lewis has been watching re-runs of Starsky & Hutch?

On another note, the FIA have allowed the Honda drivers another engine each this year. About time they were given a break.

I think Honda believed it when they were told at the beginning of the season that they could ask for unused tokens from other teams. Gradually they have come to see that the F1 fraternity is not quite so generous towards potential rivals.

Honda have been so fastidious in deciding whether to use even a single token out of the few allotted to them, that Alonso has of late been champing at the bit.

Honda are now at last threatening to really, really turn up the wick. Be afraid people, be very afraid!

I wish.

Well, when Honda get it right, they often achieve domination. This could end up like the irresistible force meeting the immovable object: Honda versus Mercedes.

As to Mercedes, I was amused to read an article in the German press about how their dominance is down to that German excellence in all things. The reporter did not seem to know that those F1 engines are made in the UK.

I don't think it took Ferrari long to remember why they'd paid Kimi to NOT drive for them ~five years earlier.
At his best, I think Kimi was (perhaps even is) the best driver in F1. Unfortunately, he is also perhaps the most inconsistent driver out there, and has been since his championship season.

Not exactly top notch talent there (actually some seriously bad driving )
I must admit though, while beating top competition was always the most satisfying, if I showed up at the track and found out that a current F1 driver was going to run my class, I suspect my response would be

Yes,

And in an event which any half decent hazard and risk management system would have seen coming and dealt with.

A predictable and needless loss.

A little harsh as it has prompted new safety rules worldwide.

Terribly bitter and sad news.

Jolihokistix,

This isn't a place for an argument, but the fact that the rules have changed as a result of a foreseeable event only supports my position. Good systems should identify the potential for that sort of event without it having to occur to prompt the elimination of hazards and management of risk.

Given the enormous improvements in F1 in recent decades, that such a simple event caused a death should give pause for thought.
