Current Lewis Hamilton

The Artist.....

Champion Elect
What about his cutting across the infield in Germany, which should have brought about disqualification? IMO, he was allowed to keep the result only because he was driving for the home team.
This would never have led to disqualification... every other case of cutting the pit line has led to a time Penalty though... you do have to ask why that was not done...

A couple of Lewis' quotes from a BBC News article:

"I love space. I would love to go to space. That's a dream that is kind of crazy. I'd love to go in a fighter jet.

I went to Nasa last year which was awesome so that was one of my dreams. I'm massively into space."

Dare I say it he's grown on me slightly this year. My take on celebs and people with serious money going into space is this: Astronauts always seem to have a humbled, holistic view of the earth, for obvious reasons. The stars all look the same, it's the earth that changes. Hence the Hamiltons of this world who buy a ticket to space will hopefully come back and wax lyrically about the precious earth and how we must take better care of it. They have an audience of millions so this is a Good Thing.

Lewis has been the class of the grid this season, particularly when they came back from the mid-season break. A thoroughly deserved Championship having put his team mate in his box very early on in the season. As unequal a match as Scumacher/Barrichello or Vettel/Webber.

Poor old Rubens. At least he had a contract to blame that enforced his good behaviour on the odd occasion he did manage to show his pace against Schumi. I've no idea what Bottas's excuse was??

To be fair to him I've seen people ask Paul McCartney if the real Paul died in 1967, ask Katy Perry whether she is really JonBenet Ramsey and shout "Melisa!" At Avril Lavigne withot people calling them a dumbass so I'll give him a pass on this remark. This video is actually the most excited I've seen him in ages.

I haven't watched the video but from the article it appears the question was "why do people think there was a hoax?" which, to use RasputinLives analogy would be the same as asking Macca "why do people think you died in 1967?"

Another "non-news" story I think.

(didn't we once have a Hamilton non-news thread or am I imaging that?)

I've watched the section where he asks the question, and there's no hint that he holds any feeling that there may have been a hoax. I think he asks the question well to be fair. I was expecting something more clumsy. But if it helps persuade one or two people who watch the video of the truth then fair play for asking the question as he did.

Macca died in a motorbike accident in 1967. They replaced him with the winner of a Paul McCartney lookalike contest called Billy Shears just before recording Sgt Pepper. They all grew beards to disguise the fact Paul's face had changed. Then once they had got away with the biggest case of fraud of all time they littered their lyrics with clues to the fact he was dead....as you do.

"Here's another clue for you all - The Walrus was Paul"

FB, the cover of Abbey Road is a funeral procession. Paul is barefoot which is a sign of death in one of the religions. The registration of the VW Beetle is 28IF which means Paul would have been 28 if he'd lived when the album was released. The cover of Sgt Pepper is supposed to represent Pauls grave. If you listen to then end of Straberry Fields Forever there is a snatch of mixed up music in the playout and you can hear John say "I burried Paul".

There are loads of things that people have linked to it.
