of course our lewis had some good races, but so far the overall picture is full of ups and downs. i am waiting for the next one. we'll see what he comes up with next.
and yes, other drivers yell at the team too. but this is lewis hamilton. he has a whole team built around him! last time we had anything remotely like that was ferrari and der michael although i assume jean todt did have a pretty strong say in matters too. at maclaren even this does not seem the case. so there is a marked difference there. there is nothing in that team lewis does not have a say in and there is nothing that does not have his approval.
but back on topic.... his driving does seem to improve, but i am not at all sure if this is natural progress or forced by rule changes. for me the jury is still out on this one.
I'm far from becoming a member of the LH fan club, but do you really think Lewis had a say in Button joining McLaren, or a veto on any other driver? Do you really think he was part of the decision making process that led to Mercedes becoming a non-partner, and eventually ceasing to be an engine supplier?
And as for ups and downs, he has 4 finishes in the top 6 this season, a consistency equalled only by Nico R. Button has been more up and down (in Bahrain he barely raised a blip on the radar), but has taken advantage of mixed conditions and a smart, confident attitude to win 2 races. It's here that (I feel) Lewis needs to step up, and have more belief in what he is feeling in the car, and make his decisions rather than rely on the team. If that is his weak link, then it's not a bad one to have as it will come with experience and the reinforcement of getting it right.
He's quick, he's young, he overtakes better than most on the grid, get over it.
