Lucky Hamilton wins monaco race

I have never seen such a lucky guy in my life. He got a puncture as he touched the wall, and almost at the same time, got the safety car running coz of another accident. Result, he was able to repair the car, and get out without losing much position. His out of time pit turned out be the best fit for the rain hit race and he won the race. I still cant believe how much luck he has in each race. If Raikkonen had a tiny percentage of this luck, he would ve been a three time world champion by now.

Raikkonen is a gifted driver, no doubt about it, but Hamilton is leagues ahead in my view. It just goes to show that bringing on talent is worthwhile. But I also think that it takes some of the soul out of motor racing. In 10 years time I very much fear that all race drivers will be like Hamilton. Fast, talented, but ultimately boring racers. Hope that I'm wrong. Anyway, in 10 years time motor racing will be politically unacceptable if they still use petrol/gas.

The best driver is Raikkonen, but his car is often unreliable. Thats how there was such a fight for last years championship. Hamilton on the other hand, has a car thats so reliable. I was so surprised that it didnt break apart after his brush with the wall. Take the number of times, Raikkonen had car problems this year... and compare it with Hamilton. You can see that the latter had none. Whereas Raikkonen had two races this season itself.

Hamilton hasn't impressed as much this season admittedly. But come on, his race in Monaco was inspired - all Kimi did was take himself and Sutil out destroying Team India's first point scoring opportunity this tear. Last year's championship was a fluke. Kimi got it by default. Thanks' for the discussion. Happy F1ing.
