Can see where your coming from. But he has been brought straight in to a top team, finds out he can drive as fast, if not better than the top dog, now has tonnes of pressure with constant attention. I am sure if he had come in to a lesser team and worked his way up he may be a bit more humble but I still think he is one of the better people in the paddock
He shouldn't have to work his way up from the bottom, he's proved he's quick enough to be a championship winner so go for it sonny, good luck to him next year. He's come up through karting, Formula Renault, F3, GP2 (and stormed the GP2 series), Ron Dennis knows his onions and wouldn't put him in the seat unless he thought Lewis would be up there with Alonso in the thick end of the points.
Fair play to him, getting straight in and coming 2nd in his first year, the Brits always like an underdog, we don't like people with natural talent, we like a long, drawn out fight to the top. It happens in the workplace all over the country, a young whipper-snapper comes in, does well and all of a sudden there's a queue of people waiting to stab them in the back. I suppose it's a bit 'American' to come straight in at the top, thinking he was born with a silver spoon, he's been groomed by Ron Dennis, whatever, he's into a top seat and thoroughly deserves it, I bet after the years of experience, no driver outside the top 4 this year would be able to match Lewis in the same car, especialy in their first year.
