Yeah I don't watch F-1 much so I don't know who to pick. What I do know is what I read and he's going to kick butt this year. He also has some jerks being racist against him so I picked a good one. I like the underdog. Other then that blah blah blah.

The Australian GP was one for us Ferrari fans to forget and learn from mistakes. Hamilton drove excellently well and deserved the victory. Congratulations to him.
When a driver has to push hard from the onset and without TC, mistakes will be punished. Massa selected the wrong gear out of turn 1 or 2 and paid the price. Kimi got it wrong twice but could still continue until his engine gave up. He admitted he was at fault for going off the track. Heikki admitted to making the mistake of pressing the wrong button, which allowed Alonso to finish 4th. I mean, drivers will make mistakes. Like it or not. Hamilton made some mistakes last year. It seems rather early to talk about domination.
It was an exciting race.
FORZA FERRARI!

Well said my friend , im Kimi's fan , and im very disapointed about Kimi did this weeken ,and im not afraid to amitted . But im not gonna stop being his fan or count him out , the season is long ,everybody make mistake sometime and specialy when you really want to be in front and you have to push it . But i have to admitted too that Kimi was the star of the race until he make a mistake on Kovy.

To me as always, HAM demonstrated nothing, rather than he knows how to win races, just if he starts from pole position.

As always he enjoyed the best car and luck, a good luck, that I haven't saw since Michael, whom he never broken a ferrary engine until the Japan GP in 2006.

I hope HAM would have to demostrate how good is he, as having the same bad/good luck than the others, managing pressure as the others. While he can have a superior car, then, the pilot wouldn't have the chance to demostrate how good is him.

To demonstrate that, he has to dog fight face by face, and to win the combats, by now he justs starts from pole with, maybe, the best car in grid and no fight hapened so nothing is demostrated yet, from the pilot point of wiew. Without copying nothing, will give us a better chance to evaluate him.

Any way I guess the MC-driver combination is the best in the 2008 grid, so disgracefull to me he would became WC.

I hope he would have to demostrate how good is him and he would fail again. I hope so.

I hope Ferrary would face MC and win the title, If not, I hope they open his doors to the pilot they need more..... Alonso!. Kova, if RON let him, would fit well too, if he wins the title, anyone rahter to HAM.

By the way to me HAM is the humblest F1 driver, even more than Michael, and because many Antialonsoist's think that of Alonso, To me HAM is it more than Alonso is. I never heard to any driver to say, he is going to win the title, they may think it, but I never heard that, even hadn't heard it to Michael. Pathetic.

Dude i`m not being patriotic,but the kid drove well simple as.I have never heard Hamilton say he is going to win the title,Just that hes going to try hard to win it.No driver can say they`ll win it as thats an idiotic statement to make.They can say they feel confident and think they be able to battle for it,but to win it no.I mean all the pundits and people at Ferrari was bragging that they`ll do well,and that it will be a boring year because Ferrari will win lots of races and will dominate.Now some could say that was a very arrogant statement to make,but there you go.The statement was apparently made by Luca di montezemolo.I think its going to be tight again this year like is was last season.Ferrari will come back strong next race thats for sure.And for me its great to see that BMW are getting closer also.

Dont waste your time trying to explain or reason with haters like him. He has no grace or ability to be magnanimous in defeat, no matter how well Lewis does & he did BRILLIANTLY all weekend, the haters cant stand it. he is probably hurting from seeing how well Lewis coped without TC unlike the WC who made rookie mistakes!

Fantastic start for my beloved Mclaren & seeing Ron collect the victory was a perfect end to the day. Hope there are many more to come.

well now, the show is on the other foot. hopefully ferrari will show you how easy it is to win from the front row so that all the hami fans will realise that hami is no super natural. oh, and hami is starting at the back...let's see if he can do better than kimi did last week. it's only too bad that macca got the penalty because i'm sure that the fia will be blamed saying that they did it to help ferrari win. it's going to be a great season and my hopes are that ferrari smoke macca, but only time will say. i will not say that ferrari will be the champs till the end of the season, but if they are, look out macca fans...especially the one's who claim the championship after just one race...

My point exactly its early days and anyone who writes off Ferrari after one race is a complete knoob,and knows nothing about F1 period.All i was saying is that Hamilton drove a flawless race in australia.I think its gonna be another tight season providing we don`t have none of the controversy like we had this year.
