I'm not following your logic here, if Lewis had picked up a puncture on the last lap running over Red Bull's or BMW carbon fibre lying on the track and finished last, he STILL would have had a good race. In this instance it's not what you do, but how you do it.

He was infront of Massa because his long second stint was fast enough to allow him to come out ahead after his third pit stop. No one can deny that he has a slower car than Massa, yet he was still able to drag himself ahead of the red car. People who say that it was 'just' down to luck didn't watch the race very carefully and/or don't know what they're talking about.
Finally, the title of this thread is a little silly, Lewis is the youngest world champion ever and a close runner up in 2007. Once again, anyone, who knows ANYTHING about F1 understands that winning the WDC puts you in an elite group of top drivers. Of course he's proved his worth...
