    Just amazing. He must really get under Bottas' skin.

    Yeah. It was a good race yesterday when he set that record. That number will only continue to climb.

    I don't follow F1 but from what I've read he's not a particularly nice guy, a bit entitled and up himself.
    Certainly had a charmed career but if he's doing well then good luck to him.

    There is an old saying: "There are nice guy drivers in F1. Then there are the others that have a chance at being a champion."

    All these guys have massive egos and are very "Me centric"; they have to be to succeed.

    Some of them seem like nice people outside the car; a few don't.

    Hamilton live a jet-set lifestyle of a celebrity. Take that for what it's worth.

    I have despised Hamilton for a long time for many of his idiotic statements and his disingenuousness about how he got his start (as though he was a street orphan or something), but he seems to have developed something like grace over the last couple of years. Bears mentioning the guy he just passed on that list was never going to win any congeniality contest.

    Zero denying Lewis is the driver of his era at a minimum, certainly the best pairing of driver and car that I can recall seeing. Absolute dominance.
