Y DALE LA CABRA AL MONTE: NUEVAS OPINIONES SOBRE LA ACTITUD DE LEWIS HAMILTON

Creíamos que por fin las teorías sobre Lewis sufrirían un descanso para centrarnos en el Gp de Japón, pero el último incidente en el que se vio envuelto en la calificación (donde al dismunuir su velocidad para crear espacio con el coche de delante, fue adelantado por Mark Webber y Michael Schumacher, maniobra, sin aparente peligro eso sí) ha vuelto a traer los comentarios sobre la actitud y la cabeza de Lewis a la hora de disputar los grandes premios.Uno de los últimos en hablar ha sido Nigel Mansell, alguien a quien se le respeta mucho por todo lo que consiguió en el pasado, Campeón del Mundo de la F1 y de la Champcar (cuando todavía gozaba de un gran respeto esta competición).


Nigel piensa que lo que le falta a Lewis en un poco de cabeza y sobre todo alguien que él respete y le diga las cosas como son.Su reciente relación con el manager de las estrellas, Simon Fuller, no está siendo muy aplaudida dado la falta de consejo sincero y honesto que necesita en estos momentos.Nigel es de esa opinión, y no duda en plantearlo de esta manera: "He needs somebody who he respects to tell him on occasions that this is how it is and this is how you should conduct yourself. At times, Lewis doesn't always engage his brain before his mouth" y entre otras cosas, para ello no duda en comentar sobre el incidente en Spa "I asked Lewis if he had seen Maldonado and he replied, "No". For all the years I did the job, I had an idea where everyone was on the track around me.".En resumidas cuentas, cuando Nigel Mansell conducía y ganaba Gp's por doquier, siempre supo quien tenía alrededor de su coche (al lado o detrás), con lo que le extraña una respuesta como la que Hamilton dio en Spa (que no sabía que estaba ahí).Si en un principio le disculpa de la menra en que leereis a continuación, tampoco duda en meter un poco el dedo en la llaga para decirle lo que debería hacer de ahora en adelante:"No one in his right mind deliberately drives into another car, so I wonder if some of his problems have been caused by a lack of visibility? He needs to show better peripheral awareness of where he is."

Sin más, os dejo con las declaraciones completas donde también opinan David Coulthard y Eddie Jordan.

As Hamilton fluffs his lines again, Mansell chides: Lewis has an attitude problem

Lewis Hamilton invited fresh controversy ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix after another mental aberration deprived him of the chance to start the race from pole position. At least Hamilton's position of third on the grid offered him an opportunity to redeem himself, but it could not prevent his approach to his work in this troubled season from attracting biting criticism from Nigel Mansell, a former world champion who is now on the Formula One stewards' roster.


'Lewis has to work on an attitude problem,' said Mansell, a winner of 31 grands prix. 'He needs to get his head in a better place. You have to manage your car better than Lewis has done on too many occasions this season. Too many times he has positioned his car where he has caused an incident.' Hamilton's latest error on Saturday was down to an unusual lack of awareness. In the final seconds of qualifying, he slowed his McLaren to create some space as he sought to defend his position at the head of the time sheets. To his disbelief, he was passed on either side by Mark Webber and Michael Schumacher, detouring across the grass.'It was the most ridiculous thing I've ever experienced in qualifying,' said Hamilton, after missing a possibility to keep Sebastian Vettel from pole, which the German won by nine-thousandths of a second from McLaren's Jenson Button. 

Yet not for the first time this year, Hamilton later revised his opinion to admit culpability.'It was my mistake,' he said. 'I was making a wing change and I went out too late.' To Mansell, 58, it was a symptom of a developing trend.'Make no mistake, Lewis is a great driver, but sometimes in life you have to step outside your own shadow and ask yourself, "Can I do it better than I am?" ' he said. 

'He needs somebody who he respects to tell him on occasions that this is how it is and this is how you should conduct yourself. At times, Lewis doesn't always engage his brain before his mouth.' Hamilton found himself before Mansell in the stewards' room after qualifying for the Belgium Grand Prix when he first banged wheels with Pastor Maldonado at the Bus-Stop chicane, then was a victim of road-rage as the Venezuelan drove into him.

Mansell said: 'I asked Lewis if he had seen Maldonado and he replied, "No". For all the years I did the job, I had an idea where everyone was on the track around me.' Former team owner Eddie Jordan said: 'I've calculated Lewis has lost 30-40 points this year. There's no point being the world's fastest driver - and I see so much of Ayrton Senna in his style - if you continually make mistakes. Lewis mucked up again.' 
Hamilton's season, featuring incidents in Malaysia, Monaco, Canada, Hungary, Belgium, Singapore and now Japan - and two victories in China and Germany - were put under the microscope by the BBC yesterday.

David Coulthard said: 'Lewis has an aggressive style and that aggression will catch him out from time to time. But if Lewis changed it would be like taking the swagger out of Mick Jagger; it wouldn't be the same.
Mansell added: 'No one in his right mind deliberately drives into another car, so I wonder if some of his problems have been caused by a lack of visibility? He needs to show better peripheral awareness of where he is.' Hamilton's frustration is born from a desire to have an ultra-competitive car - like Vettel's Red Bull.'I don't try to be arrogant, but we all believe we are the best,' said Hamilton.'But Seb has been the better driver this year and he deserves the title.' At least no one will challenge that well-intentioned opinion.

Existe un coche, que no tiene espejo central, ya que el motor impide la visión, el argumento del fabricante, es que nadie va a ser mas rápido que tu, creo que Hamilton peca de eso, de creerse el mas rápido en pista, de hecho, en anteriores incidentes ha basado su argumentación, en que son pilotos lentos y no muy avilés.

Particularmente creo que puede tener 2 problemas: 1) que se cree el rey del espectaculo en pista y cree que cualquier acción que haga se justifica en pro del aficionado, aunque ponga en peligro a sus compañeros y a si mismo...o 2), que tiene un problema de visión lateral y necesita pasar por el oftalmologo.Rn cualquiera de los 2 casos es grave y necesita que le ponga solución.Hoy con Massa ha vuelto a repetir y creo que ya no debería valer eso de "sin querer" o "no sabía que estaba ahí".Es su trabajo, debería saber realizarlo sin poner en peligro al resto de manera constante.
