In defence of Hamilton he has beaten two reigning world champions and the only teammates to have been him were world champions . Only Prost and Reutemann hold that distinction in F1. Vettel's teammate record does not compare

Just for curiousity F1 Hamilton's teammates have either been of Finnish origin or reigning world champions...

And in 2009, when Button become WDC, Vettel beat Hamilton, as did Webber and Barrichello, even when Hamilton was clearly in a Championship winning car. And the mere fact that Rosberg became WDC shows just how dominate the Mercedes CAR was, as, IMO, Rosberg was only on upper-mid-tier talent. And you cannot deny that that year, Hamilton finished second in a two-car Championship.

2nd in two car championship because Mercedes allowed to them to race for the championship not orchestrated through contractual obligations like Schumacher or Vettel have been doing even with the best car by country mile. Hamilton beats his teammates on the race track not through a piece of paper or getting someone in the management to protect him at all costs. If Hamilton had won 2016 as well your argument would be to discredit it because he had the best car and his teammate is not world class. I think I ll trust someone like Ross Brawn who rated Rosberg as a world class driver and world champion material
