Canada, Spa, China, all had wreckage deposits that materialized into a dominant win the next time out.
He has invested heavily in Monza real estate, he should reap the benefits next year.
I just have to disagree with this. Mr Hamilton is definitely good, but after this amount of time in Formula One, he is expected to be on the far side of the learning curve. What happened at Monza was the tiniest amount if a mistake, be it too aggressive or whatever. The difference between hero and zero in this kind of scenario is miniscue, and unfortunately Mr Hamilton lost out. It was sad, but it did happen, it was no figment of anyone's imagination, he had zero impact on the race, and crashing out is not laying the groundwork for future success. The driver loses out on valuable track time in a racing environment, the engineers receive zero data that can be utilized in the future, a crash is not only something where you achieve zero, but are set back in progress.
You achieve success by improving, not doing worse.
