There is an article, interesting one about did Hamilton deserved to lead the 2014 Championship? This season began with DNF for Hamilton for no fault of his, which put Nico in clear lead with 25 points. In the next 4 Grand Prix's he finished ahead of Nico and Nico was right behind him, apart from Malaysia. Hat of to Hamilton he destroyed Rosberg. In the following he was not that dominant, if he was at all. Came Monaco and Nico won, who and what happened for real on the quals, we can argue till tomorrow. But came Canada and when all thought that it's time for Hamilton to win just because Canada it seems to be "Hamilton's track" Nico got the pole (because Hamilton did mistake) and went ahead with the lead, until late in the race that Hamilton succeed in passing him, but late because he had overheated his brakes from running in hot air behind and due to had problems with his MGU-K, laps later that struck Rosberg too (it seemed more of a problem with brakes that running behind hot air) After months have past and now i see different at the events i wonder why Hamilton was pulled of and Nico continued. I might missed something. People speak about Nico being favorite cause he is a german driving for german team. Nonsense! Although it's team has german name-brand "Mercedes" and engine too and top people, some people, happen to be german, doesn't change the fact that most of the staff are brits. If they were asked to prevent Hamilton from victory or some strategy, i think they won't play the ball! So, Canadian GP past and we saw the pattern that said - whoever got the pole, was ahead kept the lead and won. Mercedes will favorite for best strategy option whoever is in the lead, not other way around. When Hamilton was ahead he got better strategy, entering earlier etc. Other time it was Nico. Came Red Bull Ring, Hamilton made mistake he is not allowed to, in qualifying and cost him the race. Nico took the victory by a second. Some argue Hamilton would have won if he started from front row, but we won't know that and he didn't made sure he was there, he made mistake. Came Silverstone, he once again made mistake and was chasing Rosberg. Rosberg again was in the lead, and would have stayed and won that too if his gearbox didn't failed. Some say Nico was luckier than Hamilton. I don't think that way. When Hamilton retired (apart Australia) Nico won 18 points When Nico was the case, Hamilton won 25 (Silverstone Grand Prix) Now, we had Germany GP, home race for Nico and Hamilton AGAIN has problems, but look at Vettel? He has them too. Ricciardo is all fine. To think that they sabotage Hamilton on purpose is just stupid. So, bad luck this time, yeah. But, did Hamilton deserved to lead the 2014? NO! What do you think?
