    Grande, campeón!!. Por fin se hizo justicia. Te robaron una carrera este año, te sancionaron injustamente, pero no hubo forma de vencerte. Ni con malas artes la FIA y Ferrari pudieron. Me alegro muchísimo. Y vamos por varios campeonatos más.

    Luis Venosa

  11. Grande Hamilton! desde Chile te saludo, espero te quedes toda la vida en esta escuderia nuestra escuderia McLaren!

    Una carrera emocionante!

  12. Budi says:

    Congratulations! Is this year going to be the Year of Emancipation in the world? Barrack Obama seems to be going to be the first black US President two days after you became the world champ! I hope he is! Keep breaking new records!

    The main man! Many congratulations Lewis. No one can take this away. A true champion in every regard. It’s a shame that your peers cannot respect your talent, grit and reflect upon you the same graciousness and humility that make you our champion….Well done. I wish you many more world championships to come.

  16. Sorry, my english isn’t very good…

    Hamilton is the best.

    I felt shame for the brazilian crowd and their unacceptable behaviour… He deserves congratulations for his victory!

    I am brazilian, and I am suporting Hamilton since the last year. He is a wonderful driver, a great person.

    I wasn’t so happy seen the “Formula 1” since Ayrton Senna died…

    Hamilton must know: He has Brazilians Fans too!!!

    Caro Hamilton, foi publicado em um no site do Brasil a informação que seu pai havia entendido que o ato de lhe presentear um gato preto seria um ato de racismo. Na realidade nao houve este propósito; tratou-se de uma brincadeira de uma “bruxaria” de um grupo de humor da TV que lhe presenteara um gato preto “enfeitiçado” para lhe dar azar e você perder a corrida. Repito, foi apenas uma brincadeira, talvez não aceita pela cultura europeia. Mas, foi só brincadeira. O povo brasileiro adora fazer este tipo de brincadeiras.
    E finalmente, parabens pelo título. Você merece. Nós, brasileiros, também são seus fãs.

    i wasn’t a fan of racing,till me and my daughter met him,yes it was him,now i jump all over the world when he wins,good on you lewis keep it up man

  19. F1 GP Fan says:

    I would like to know what you think about the new rules. Will Hamilton still win if all teams have the same (more or less) engine?

  20. Hey there – I’m planning to write a post on that very soon. Gotta say though – the cars do look quite strange, feels like we’re going backwards..
