    Default F1 Tonight

    Fellow froggers.
    I have just switched alliegience, so to speak, from another car forum which was, all said, a bit 'dry'. too much talk about mechanical matters, and not enough breadth for my liking. So, I am just trying to get into the swing of the broader discussion range of Aussiefrogs.com.

    That said......

    I was watching the F1 just now, and they were saying how Hamilton is "one of the greats", and I suppose that is true. Then again, he hasnt really been a consistent performer, and has had some serious bouts of pouting, and even now is only 169pts vs Rosberg on 159. So, why is he "one of the greats"? I dont even necessarily disagree; I certainly feel that he is, but I cannot see in the stats why he is. So just an idle thought. Perhaps someone else has some thoughts on the matter?

    No problem if this is just irrelevant ramblings, which could be the case.

    Thanks.

    Hamilton is one of the "Greats", just ask any British Journo or Fan.

    But for the rest of the world, he is an extremely talented steerer certainly a cut above most currently, but maybe not quite there with the ultimate few. There is more to being a Great than just being fast and consistent. He could manage his races and tyres better and of course he has a bad attitude, he isn't a people's driver that's for sure ... unless you're British.

    Monaco showed just how immature he is and while the team apologised profusely for the mistake that he initiated, from last night at Austria you won't see him apologising to anyone for his driving mistake that cost the team 5 seconds.

    Bernie Eccelstone isn't a stupid man, he is complaining about the lack of personalities for the public to look to in the F1 field currently, and he's spot on. I can't think of another time when there was no one to adore or hate as much as right now - Kimi's helping with the "ha ha" awards though, about the only entertainment.

    F1 is in real trouble these days, tried to make it something it's not.
