Monaco is the most boring procession of a race.
Kudos to the commentators who try to inject some excitement into something utterly boring.

Hamilton equals the Schumacher's pole tally at Spa, that's quite an achievement.

Yes well done to him again and hope he wins and Vettel doesn't cheat.

Lewis Hamilton gives his poetry gland a rare squeeze over Princess Di: England's Rose.

Terrible start to the Singapore race. Vettel  mistake takes out top 4 grid cars. Hamilton leading the race.

Ferrari trying to blame Verstappen which is a complete joke. After his antics bashing into Hamilton earlier in the season, Vettel was supposed to be on his final warning so should have a race ban after this latest incident.

He should be encouraged to do it again. Anything that takes out Ferrari is fine by me. Another astonishing job by Hamilton for which I doubt he'll be appreciated to the level he should. The man is phenomenal. When you think how much Mansell and Hill Jnr were lauded (and rightly so), it should be a given that Hamilton is considered by the wider public as one of this country's all-time great sportsmen.

Definitely. It was a fantastic clean drive in difficult conditions and showed his class at the front despite all the pressure and safety cars taking his lead away at least twice during the race.

Ferrari are showing themselves up with their comments, but it comes as no surprise the way they have been conducting themselves lately and refusing to give interviews to the media.

It makes me wonder if Hamilton might jack it in if he wins the title. More titles than his hero Senna, and he's a little bit away with the fairies in my book and I wouldn't put it beyond him to make a gesture like that in the name of world peace or some such.

Hamilton is a strange one, on one hand he's an incredible talent behind the wheel, out of the car and away from F1 he's a bell end.

There are well documented theories and some fairly well backed up stories relating to his relationship with Nicole Scherzinger if you care to dig a little deeper around the internet.

I know next to nothing about Lewis Hamilton away from motor racing, mainly because I have such little interest in what celebs do I take steps to avoid finding out, but when I see him interviewed at races he seems perfectly alright and I'm not aware of him using his celebrity to advance dodgy causes. Why would anyone want to have a theory - let alone research and document it - about his relationship? If he spends his down time kicking puppies and staffing a block paving firm with slaves, fine to stick the boot in, but what has he done wrong?
