Re: How surreal, Hamilton in China.
Yep, bad judgement on his part and his teams part for keeping him out for those extra few laps!!
All he had to do was finish ahead of Alonso, but it looks like all he needs is a 3rd place to take the title.
He's got the same natural talent and ability as Schumacher has/had, but I think it has been noticed a lot sooner as F1 has become a bit boring until this season. There is of course the risk that Hamilton becomes the next Schuey - and just stays out in the front winning, which will make F1 boring again - it needs the drama, excitement, nail-biting action like in the past few races. Sure, all this furore over Ferrari's allegations on spying, the threat of having points stripped from the Japanese race, and all the politics that goes on in F1, it's not surprising that his head was perhaps not fully focused!!
I still think he can do it in the last race of the season - well I hope so anyway!!
