Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
Hamilton is a very competitive guy and he thrives on proving that he's the best. As long as he's got guys he thinks he can beat, he will be in the sport. When Max starts beating him up on a regular basis, that's when he'll call it quits. I can see him going until a ripe old age. I say this because like most Hamilton fans I never really cared to learn about the history of Juan Manual Fangio. I knew of his records and the cars and people he raced, but I didn't know his story. After watching a documentary on Fangio to sort, you know as a tribute to HAM's 5WDC.. I learned about hid life, his fearlessness, his symbiosis with his cars, how he won his world championships between the age of 40 and 47!! I am sure that Hamilton too, read a little more about the man ... and he too will see that magic of being the "old man" the old master on the field that all the guys look up to and respect... and cannot beat! ha. I think that's will keep HAM in the sport until the age of 42 if Max/Leclerc/Russel don't start regularly kicking his but before that...Just_a_fan wrote: ↑Thu Nov 01, 2018 11:37 amThere is also the need for a particular kind of personal drive. Hamilton started out wanting to get a title. He got that. Then he wanted to match his hero's (Senna) 3 titles. Then he seemed to decide to go for more. Now he has 5, I think he'll set himself the goal of getting 7. Has Max got that in his temperament or will he find the glamour/adoration of being a champion is overwhelming? I guess we'll find out.
Of course, Max needs a title-capable car first. And then he'll need to be consistent over a season or two.
If Hamilton makes it to 7 or 8, that would likely put Max on 0 or 1 title when Hamilton reaches 7 or 8. That means Max will be probably 25yrs old with 1 title. Would people then think he can get to 9 ? that would need 8 titles in 10 years and that is very very unlikely to happen. What do ya think ?Manoah2u wrote: ↑Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:02 pmLet's wait and see. Hamilton could reach Schumi's results and has more chances at this moment compared to Max, even though max has more time ahead.
Lewis' biggest opponent surely will be Max next year. I think reliability is the biggest danger for Max next year.
But, that being said, it can go everywhere. For all it's worth, Max can just as easily drive himself into a wall and get injured for a few races, or worse, get unfit for f1 racing.
That goes for everybody, but Max has 9 titles to go for the least; if Hamilton makes it to 7, he's gonna go for 8. Max needs 9 to beat that, and i think Max isn't the guy that
has interest in that. Vettel had, but is losing his motivation i think.
Personally, i don't want Max to go for those numbers. It would make it rather monotone at some point, regardless whether he had to drive spectacular and amazing for it.
For example, Alonso only has 2 titles, but will be remembered for the guy who beat Schumacher, who had 7 titles.
Right now, nobody is beating hamilton. So Max beating him would give Max that similar 'notion'. After that, it can go anywhere.
Perhaps you should have made the effort to understand what he was saying exactly before drawing conclusions and rolling your eyes?
