Lewis Hamilton Faces a Cross Road
2012 has not been an easy year for Lewis Hamilton in Formula One racing. He has approached the championship challenge with a fire and determination to be the best, qualifying around 4 times on pole position, but has only managed to convert this to a win twice, once in Canada, and then last week in Hungary.
Lewis has not put a foot wrong, he has raced cleanly, and he brings such a wonderful spirit to everything he does, and most importantly, he shows respect to other drivers. It is pleasing to see the mutual repect that Lewis and Alonso have for each other, and the way they both acknowledge each other as being the greater driver
Mac Laren have their work cut out
But Mac Laren, which has been known as being one of the finest teams with a fast car, is sadly lacking this year. They have let Lewis down all through the season with slow pit stops, not putting enough petrol in his car, having to replace the gear box, and other mistakes, which have cost him dearly, and taken away race wins from him by sheer negligence.
In the last race when he won, they had improved their pit stops, but Lewis and Button have both complained about the lack of power and speed of their car. Their races have been won through sheer grit and determination, but that in itself is not enough to clinch the world championship.
The Rival Teams are Ahead
Ferrari, Red Bull and Lotus have all improved their cars remarkably, whereas Mac Laren is lagging behind. Even Mercedes have improved their pace. The fastest drivers deserve the fastest cars to give them the chance they deserve to win the world championship. What Lewis needs to decide is whether he will remain loyal to Mac Laren, the team that he has been a part of since he was 13 years old, or whether there is a place for him in another team which can deliver him a championship winning car.
He has a tough fight ahead of him this year to win the championship, being some 47 points behind the leader. If he changes to another team, he might stand more chance next year. But will Maclaren put their disasters behind them, and upgrade their car so he won’t want to leave them? Who knows, but I hope he makes the right decision because at this moment in time , his exceptional talent is being wasted. As a fan, I will support whatever he does.
GOOD LUCK LEWIS
