Having the best cars always helps (for both) as for less than stellar composure may I offer examples of:
- Monaco 2008 both in terms of pace and mistakes early on when it was really wet
- China 2009 comedy of errors, interestingly enough not the best car
- Monza 2008 with two blatant fouls on Glock and Webber
- Australia 2009 not passing Kubica early on and pushing Webber off track which came back to bite him
I agree though about Hamilton's possible wet race advantage in Malaysia, not necessarily because of superior composure but based on last season - early races qualifying sessions and of course Suzuka where tyres played significant role.
