luck is on his side this time around. lewis just won a thrilling race after fighting it out with kimi near at the end of the game. this time hamilton uses his superb skills again on wet weather track. kimi get past hamilton, even he leads the pole, a few laps after start time when lewis have had a few glitch at the start of the second lap but he fought back until the end. eventually, losing raikonnen when he also made his move to retake the lead when the rain began to fall. at this moment, hamilton's wet weather track skills is showing again and proving he could be the next schumacher.

Hi Sirrob, Yes he won but was penalised 25 seconds which left him in third position with Massa being declared the winner. I am really peeved about this as Massa wasn't penalised for being dangerous in the pits by nearly causing an accident in the previous race. I think Lewis Hamilton is fantastic and have nothing against Massa but it is getting very annoying that Ferrari keep getting let off while Mclaren are hit in all areas at all times. I hope Hamilton wins just to show that the polictics still can't beat a real race car driver. Ellie :D

wow, u actually with all honesty said it exactly the way i feel it. the fia is a political body and its sad to learn about their tactics which they practice so openly. maybe ferrari bribes the fia or there is favouritism happening. ferrari are never penalised for anything they do, its always mclaren. bernie must open his eyes and do something about all this if he really wants to improve the standard of the fia

hello ellie, that i heard so from the news.!! it is truly and indeed a sad note hamilton's fans. so you observe it too that he has been penalized many times whenever he comes out victorious and let alone the ferrari's make fines for the mistakes they caused. i had observe that as well and they will always scrutinize every seconds of hamilton's race wherever it may be. i couldn't help but to be disappointed for what the stewards have done. there's something wrong with what's going on in F1, considering that hamilton was ahead from raikkonen in that turn when the unfortunate event happened to kimi. did ya' know that hamilton have been punished 4 times this season alone? hope there would be good results from their appeal of the stewards penalty.

I am actually going to write to someone as Massas wasn't penalised in the last race when if it had of been Hamilton he would have been if it had of been him so yes perhaps money from Ferarri talks, who knows, but this is wrong and has been since the start of last season not just this season.

Yes, I sat there and witnessed Hamilton win Belgium - with a sick and fed up expression all over my face. Nothing would have given me greater pleasure than to have seen Kimi re-take Hamilton, especially an overtake on the outside, and gone on to win the race. An added bonus would have been Hamilton in the wall, not the Ferrari. When he started in F1, he seemed a nice enough young lad, with good potential. Since then, he has shown me nothing but arrogance, too much self admiration and a very unhealthy cockyness about his own imortality. AND TO THINK THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO CALLED MICHAEL ARROGANT. Lewis, I hope you don't ever see yourself as another Michael or Ayrton, because for me, you aint in the same competition let alone the same league.

you must be laughing out loud today when you heard the news of hamilton's relegation to third place. i bet you did.!! eyt? so much had been said about hamilton's attitude and yet a few have seen his brilliant skills, specially his developing wet weather track tactics. nonetheless, he is still young and he might seem to be arrogant but i think that is just brought about his fame coming at a young age and time would come when he matures, there could be changes by then. let's just see what will happen next.

Lets just say that seeing Hamilton sent to third place is the icing on the cake for me. I would never wish any driver physical harm of course, but a few reality-checks and the odd shunt or two might just bring Hamilton's ego back to earth.

i you saw what happened in that turn and that he (hamilton) didn't take or had the advantage from kimi during that turn. he even gave the position back to kimi before he overtook in the next. well, you have your own opinion and that's just be it.
