It's easy to overdrive an underperforming car and make an error, it's equally as easy to drive a superior car well within your limits if you're good enough and be flawless.

If all cars are equal in 2022 -- DC for Alonso :thumbsup:
One thing we can be sure about.... cars will never be equal in Formula One! And I would like Lewis to stay in F1 in 2022 and try to become WC with another team. And if not, be beaten by the someone from the new generation.

Nice article, all respect to Lewis on and off track


For me is one G.O.A.T. :barefoot:




Motorsports Goat has to be Rickey Carmicheal
Among his 12 AMA titles he stood on the podium 100% for 6
He won all 24 outdoors races in a season twice contending with double (40) the competitors

Till a F1 driver does that, well .... ;)

Sadly for the vast majority of clueless motorsport numpties F1 is the only motorsport. I don't even regard F1 drivers as the best on 4 wheels, that's Rally drivers.

Mind you in a way I feel sorry for Lewis, what he has achieved with Mercedes is amazing. Car/driver dominance never seen before. But the dominance of the car overshadows his personal acheivements IMO. If the Merc was a POS and he was still winning then that's the driver, but in a superior car (in every area at the start of the hybrid era, then rivals sort of caught up in some areas (but crucially not overall)) it's the vehicle. I just don't understand why people can't "get" that, it's a fact that the car has dominated. It's an unprecedented era in modern F1 history, not the driver but the team dominance.

Hi everyone I am here on behalf of motoliser after he has been unduly banned from the website. He has now proof that Racedepartment is ran by a few people with no integrity at all. Also he would like to let everyone know that he won’t care less if he gets permanently banned and his uploads removed, because at this time he has gathered all the evidence needed to pursue a claim against the identities involved and individuals that made the derogatory statements. But of course first, shall we explain what happened? Here we go. motoliser was banned from the forum for saying that Hamilton was the best driver of the race and added: "Verstappen again the most overrated driver in F1 history." simply based on the fact that once more the F1 driver showed that he isn’t nearly as good racer as many believe he is. Shortly after, the following users start trying to “shut him up” While posting defamatory and trolling comments like: THK84: "Aren't you getting tired of repeating yourself? We get it, you don't like Verstappen." pcraenme: "good good...let the hate flow through you" Appie Kuipers : "You can say it stronger, he is frustrated" Covenant with all the trolling and defamatory acts, this staff member took this action against motoliser before banning him from the forum, Bram Hengeveld: "Trollling content removed, user warned and now we go back on topic." For the first time ever motoliser was forced to report any users, but those reported didn’t get any ban. Following this events, motoliser warned Bram Hengeveld that if his post ban wasn’t removed immediately he would sue the identity responsible for the website, but instead he got temporarily banned of the entire web site together with threats against his legit conduct!!! Shortly after he got permanently banned because without any evidence staff thought he was trying to register as a new user when infact it was me. Now again to all staff, as you can see I have proof of all that was stated here. Feel free to remove this post or ban me aswell if you so wish! Like I said above, motoliser already holds all that is needed to punish those involved. By the way RD, it is so naive to think you can muzzle someone on your website…its really pathetic if you know what I mean!!! Take care and see you in court.

Please make my day. Honestly I cannot wait to see you in court to discuss the topics above in front of a judge. I think a judge would totally be down for it as well. :roflmao:

No mate, you are a troll and have had countless of warnings in the last two years (all nicely documented) but you have a hard time listening or following moderator guidance.
  • You received a rightful reply ban for trolling
  • You're response was a private message with a direct threat which is against our rules for which you received a 1 week ban, which in hindsight should have been a perma ban.
  • You then thought it was smart to breach our rules another time by creating a second account which got you banned for a full year.
  • And now you are doing it again which will get you unbanned: never.
Make sure to have your legal files in Dutch as this privately owned website (where you are no longer welcome) operates under Dutch Law.

I think he should stick around for as long as he can and really annoy the people that don't like him by making it virtually impossible for anyone to ever beat his records.

As long as he's winning I don't see why he would quit.

LH is objectively the best one of the current lot - regardless of how dominant the car is, but he has recently stated "he won't be in F1 for long"; how long or short that is, a bit of a guess.

As for FA, going by how strong his performances were when he left -- easily better than KR in the same team, and in another league to van-dorne later on, my money would be on alonso to beat all the leclerks and verstappens, if indeed the next generation of cars will result in a more equal playing field as Ross Brawn has promised.

Just to be clear - I've voted for Hamilton here. However...
I think he have, all these records aside, another similarity with M. Schumacher.
When he's pushed to the limit he can give you a quite bad example of sportsmanship.
Remember that Abu Dhabi last race in 2016 season when he tried so hard to slow down his team mate Rosberg so the rest of the field could catch him ?
In the final race of the 2016 season in Abu Dhabi, Rosberg entered the round with a twelve-point lead over teammate Hamilton in the World Drivers' Championship. In the final laps of the race, Hamilton defied team-orders, first from his race engineer and then by the team's technical director, and deliberately slowed to back Rosberg into the chasing pack at end of the race in a bid to encourage rivals Vettel and Verstappen to overtake his teammate, which would have allowed him to win the World Championship.[48] Despite Hamilton's tactics, Rosberg finished in second and clinched his maiden World Championship by five points over Hamilton.[49][50]
- from Wikipedia

That was painful to watch, really. :poop: And not many other drivers would do the same I believe.
He's fast, no doubt but when things don't go his way... he can be quite an arse. And fine example of sore loser.
