    Whilst I'm not a big Hamilton fan, he has driven exceptionally well all year. The reality is Rosberg lost this championship months ago, so not sure why the big drama yesterday?

    Looking at Rosberg's childish behaviour here and on the podium I'm reminded of the dignity Massa showed in 2008 in a similar situation. Felipe Baby had class.

    Paddy Lowe didn't seem too impressed.
    Lewis could afford to be aggressive into turn one, whereas Nico couldn't.
    I think Lewis being assertive rather than aggressive.
    Anyway Nico lost the race under pressure again. It must be hard for him being second best to Lewis whenever the've been teammates.
    Congratulations to Lewis, a worthy champion

    Whenever the two have had a falling out its always Lewis who shows the first forgiveness i have found. Don't think he meant anything by the hatgate incident that was just Nico's sulking.

    I was trying to figure out why Rosberg was booed as he came out to the podium but I guess the hat incident was shown live on big screens.

    DC was regularly beaten by Hakkinen but I don't recall him ever being unsporting either.

    Well I disagree !! Thought the way the hat was thrown was a bit off. Remember Nico has just seen the slim chance of beating Lewis disappear ......... look at his body language sat on the seat- so Lewis was stupid to throw the hat at him in a dismissive way - he would have been better off just leaving him alone or walking over to offer a consolatory handshake along with the hat.

    These guys are running on adrenaline for 2 hours so will be idiots for a while after

    I thought the same TBH.
    Lewis through him the losers hat....he through it back
    Better to have left him alone.
    Lewis is the worthy champion though and has been very impressive with the PR this year.

    Lewis has been dominant and is a great winning driver, and can rightly be proud for what he has achieved.

    However I think he is a bit too arrogant and had got to big for his boots. He was the product of the Mclaren racing organisation so from a young age so wont have struggled like a lot of other drivers. Since he went to Mercedes it looks like he has had some coaching on what to say when he wins a race to "appear" to have a bit more humility - listen to it the next time he wins he goes through the list in his head on who he has to thanks for his success.........its pretty much the same speech each time so probably rehearsed !!!

    Most will disagree with my views but Lewis seems to live in his own world and sod everyone else !!!

    I used to think very much the same as you about Lewis. He has grown up a great deal in the past two years though and I think you are wrong now. He certainly does not come from the privileged background Rosberg does.

    As always the telling character traits are in defeat, not when winning, and contrast Hamilton in Singapore. I also think he handled himself very well in Monaco when he was obviously furious.

    I don't think he's a good enough actor to fake speaking with the sincerity he does when it comes to struggling to succeed in a financially dominated sport. The McLaren support came far later.

    Oh and they did shake hands before 'capgate' if you saw the broadcast. He can also be seen handing Vettel's 3rd place cap to him in the video.
