      Hypothetically speaking......."What if" the roles were reversed at Bahrain?

      What if (during non-incident #1) Hamilton were Rosberg and Rosberg were Hamilton?

      What if (during non-incident #2) Hamilton were Rosberg and Alonso were still Alonso?

      Discuss.....

      I get the feeling that, although to be judged case by case, if it was Ham as the questionable driver, penalties would be handed out. I'm not supporting the Ham version from 2011 in Monaco, but I got a feeling ppl's expectations in 2012 are heavily based on prior track performance - good or bad, and rightly so. Hopefully his growth in 2012 will earn him in a spot that's brighter than in 2011. However, hope he realizes that he can't, nor should he, try to plz all.

      I am not a fan of Hamilton by any stretch but I recon he should be given points for having balls of steel and keeping that fast pedal to the wall.

      Poor,.....just poor! Sad.
      I guess nothing better to write about Hamilton,huh?
      I think it's good for him to go to Maranello for some testing. Perhaps he and Massa can sit in that same "Poor me" seat and cry on each other's shoulders.

      Its all fun and games until someone.......

      Seriously, please tell me the thought didn't cross your mind?...not even ONCE?....especially when Alonso got it too?.....and then NO penalty?....C'mon Maaaaaaaan!!

      Hamilton would have been parked!!!!......

      Its all good.

      I've got no hoodie jokes, no Skittles jokes, no sweet tea jokes.....NOTHING!!!

      However......... On a side note, where's Skeeter??? Did anyone notice the Shah-LACKING someone got in TCL? See, its not just here!!!

      As for Massa and Hamilton.... I'm not sure they should be lumped into the same sentence...dontcha thank?

      Will Massa benefit from testing? Shouldn't he be more concerned about what he's gonna do about his thinning hair?

      Hamilton had done some pretty outrageous stuff when he kept getting hit with all sorts of penalties in the past. He wasn't exactly a victim.

      Nico is just not that sort of driver, unless i'm missing something. I was surprised to not see him get hit with a penalty. That was a dangerous move alright. At least a warning was in order. I'm sure he's on the steward's radar now, though.

      Right up until the point that they actually do something blatant and silly like Rosberg (or Hamilton for that matter), none of them are "that sort of driver."

      As are you, I am surprised (...and not) that Rosberg didn't get a penalty.... not even a 10-grid spot penalty for the next race. Besides the fact that there was dirt run-off at the point of the incident, I equate both of Rosberg's moves to that of Schumacher running Barichello almost to the wall last year.

      And btw, big deal that Rosberg is on the steward's radar. The fact is: HE GOT AWAY WITH IT.....with not even a slap on the wrist. REALLY?? SERIOUSLY!! I thought for sure after he ran Alonso off that he would be penalized.... Now THAT part right there baffles me.... I thought the stewards gargled red nuts......

      i thought the same... WTF. but then i watched the GP2 race. same moves, same place exactly. either the stewards were in la la land the whole time, or the hands-off precedent was set in the GP2 race possibly.

      With a team like what LH currently has, who needs enemies...

      My Dad has been vehement in his notion that Macca will do anything to make sure LH doesn't win....that they favor Button. I have avoided discussions with him because I didn't believe there was any sort of conspiracy like he strongly believes..... I've been thinking that there is NO WAY that they would risk winning the Constructors' Championship... I could maybe, sort of, understand reducing LH's chances of winning the Driver's Championship by orchestrating a not-so-fast pitstop. But, risking losing the Constructors'???? That wouldn't make a scrap of sense...right????

      Maybe Dads do know best????

      SERIOUSLY??? REALLY????

      C'mon maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.....

      This just doesn't add up.

      Can someone please explain with logic.....

      Tell me that F1 is not an exact science and mistakes happen....that human error is just one of those factors that cannot be eliminated....that McLaren loves Hamilton and Button equally....that ANY team could have made any of the errors that have been made this year by McLaren....that any DRIVER could have been behind the wheel....that these incidents are mere coincidences.... that no conspiracy exists as it relates to Macca..

      Will someone pleeeeeease get kfz some more salt, pepper, oil and vinegar?

      He seems to be running low and in need of more.... as he delicately and so compassionately dresses my wounds......

      Not to worry though. No matter what LH does this morning (hopefully from last to first), Macca and the stewards have already met. Between the two entities, his fate has already been pre-determined...

      Lewis' problem is that his mum is white.

      I wonder how Lewis' dad would react if he were his manager during this rash of gaffes.

      Lewis has become a complete driver. The driver who is normally hard on his tires... he made those 2nd set of tires last over 30 laps and had enough left in them to attack Nico. He was the only two stopping driver this race. From what I see the WDC is his this year, his biggest obstacle is his team's constant drive to fcck things up at every turn, lewis seems to be able to handle the frustration very well though.

      Agreed. Didier Coton would be cheap at twice the price.
      He has transformed Hamilton from a whiny, hotheaded idiot to a polished, professional and downright stellar driver in an offseason.

      Had Mclaren not scuppered him at every turn he would be leading the WDC right now.

      Long may it last. his drive in Spain reminded me of the Hamilton we loved in 07' - aggressive, skillful and
      talented.

      I Believe his current, staggering, pace in qualifying will get him a win in Monaco, and from there he will build a WDC year.
