    Hamiltons poor starts have directly affected the outcome of numerous races this year. He's chewed up parts for multiple reasons.

    2016 championship: even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    End of the day.. some drivers are harder on their equipment than others.. Hamilton is faster but in turn he may well cause extra wear. Who knows :dunno:

    These days perhaps less so due to technology but mechanical sympathy certainly played a role in the past.

    Nico has performed when required, put in the laps and if he wins he deserves it. Lots of previous champions were fortunate to have theirs due to fate.

    Besides, still 4 races left and Hamilton can still win easily enough.

    Fast forwarded the race after lap one, looks like I probably didn't miss anything good.

    If anyone can fuck this up, it's Nico.

    I look forward to seeing him throw it all away.

    It's stressing me out like whoa... I have the both suits, and the Santander hat, and one helmet (grey for the Lewis costume, will be painted gloss white)... but the red helmet showed up blue and the eBay shipper is being a dick about the return. Both helmet sticker kits are coming from England with an ETA of 10/20, but can't count on that (ordered 10/1). If the helmet stickers don't show, it will suck big time. Also having some other issues with the Blackberry/PETRONAS patches for the Lewis suit as well. :hs: I've spent WAAAY too much money on this for them to fall apart at the end. :mad:

    Rosberg has got this.

    Hamilton has just gone full blown meltdown of late.

    Hamilton always goes well at COTA, rosberg always gets hit with gusts of wind.
