  5. Henry says:

    Hi Lewis. I have always watch your races from germany. I dont have much to complain but rather encourage you to be strong and continue to be yourself. Try face Alonso like a man. He does not like you but you should know this anyway. So knock him out as a sportsman and live the rest for the journalist. Thanks and goodluck. Henry

  10. Dylan says:

    Good luck with the 2011 season opener Lewis!
    I have been following the winter testing quite closely, and I hope for you, Jenson and Mclaren as a whole that your car for this year improves from the pace/reliability shown so far!
    But overall you are definitely my favourite driver, I’m a real fan bro.
    Your strongest competitor, is either going to be yourself, or it’s going to be Jenson, as he is in identical hardware to you.

    Fingers crossed as always!!

  14. Amjah Man says:

    Lewis..1 week to go for grand opening 2011 F1 season.HOPE you can win for the 1st race…GO LEWIS!!

  15. Lyra Mavrick says:

    Lewis …

    You are the best Formula 1 driver I have ever seen.
    My husband and I just love watching your aggressive, fast, clean driving technique.
    The mark of a real driver is the ability to overtake and you are in a class of its own compared to the rest of the current F1 drivers, when it comes to that.

    So, keep it up Lewis. We hope the 2011 Championship will be yours.
    We will be watching every moment of it.

    By the way, my husband is the biggest Formula 1 fan in the entire USA …
    He has recorded every F1 race since 1998, which was the first year he could
    get F1 on TV.
    Also, he followed your career in GP2 and became an immediate fan of yours, because he was so impressed with your driving skill.

  16. Maynul says:

    Lewis u just drive
    Fan’s r with u…………..

  17. Joseph Dumary says:

    My man Lewis, I think you can win the first race..I hope you will become champion again..and we all know you can do it…

  18. Chris says:

    Well Lewis hope you have a great season, your by far the best driver on the track love your driving style keep focus and all the best in 2011 F1

  19. Manoj says:

    Good luck Lewis… I shall be rooting for you… and I hope the guys at McLaren give you a good car and you turn it into a legend… something your future generations shall look forward to.

    Sort of how I look at Gilles Villeneuve’s car in 79. You are an impersonation of him anyways.

    Good luck!

  20. GoLewis!! says:

    C’mon Lewis. Got you in our F1 pool this year. You win..I’ll split the $140 with ya!!

  21. annieb says:

    waiting for you Lewis. Bring it on.

  22. les wass says:

    well lewis another season hope you win the championship again cant wait for it to start

  23. Have a great season, I’m certain you can win the championship this year, your certainly the most entertaining driver out there with raw talent so just beleive you can do it, hope the car is quicker, and McLaren can make it go even faster throughout the year.

  24. Mark Thompson says:

    Wish you the best of luck for 2011 Lewis.

    I truly hope that, from the off, those wizard engineers in woking deliver you a machine that is worthy of your talent. It’d be a real dissapointment if they had to spend several races playing catch up (again!)

  25. Natalija says:

    Good luck Lewis.. I hope you win the championship…. I believe in you… 🙂

  26. Ken Hall says:

    There’s no doubt that the strongest competitors in F1 are Hamilton and Alonso. There is almost no difference in speed, ability, determination, talent or skill between them. It is clear to me that if either of them had been partnering Vettel in the Red Bull last year that they would have won the title with races to spare.

    So what makes me a Hamilton fan, rather than an Alonso fan? Simple. It is attitude and temperament. Alonso does not want to compete on equal terms in equal equipment. Like Prost, he wants unfair advantages all the time.

    Hamilton wants to beat the other guy with as equal equipment, so he can rightly claim, it was not because of a better car.

    Good luck for the coming season Lewis. I hope you win the title again.

  27. Mojo says:

    Hey Lewis, we will be rooting for you this weekend, don’t take any crap from anyone, you are my hero who was badly let down by inferior equipment xxxx

  28. Flor Aelbrecht says:

    Hi Lewis,
    Ayrton Senna was the best racedriver ever!
    But when I see you on the racetrack…You bring him back alive!
    Keep up the good work!
    Good luck for the coming season.
    Flor Aelbrecht

  29. T. Roy says:

    Lewis will be the new Champ this season.

  30. Andy Rockley says:


    Your the most exciting driver on the track at the moment- daring, precise and imaginative.

    Good luck and give it beans! 🙂
