Hamilton's not always deemed the most likeable of guys. Common complaints I see concern his apparent petulance and arrogance. Sometimes, via the radio messages, or after a poor qualifying session, Hamilton is seen as moody. The truth? He can be all of those things - but so can any driver, and any top sporting professional - no one who is driven to succeed as much as these guys are achieves what they achieve because they accept anything less than the absolute best from themselves. Second place is not good enough to Lewis Hamilton. He strives for excellence and will aggressively do what he can to hold onto a place. In the process, he's honed his skills as a driver, being supreme in wet conditions, able to adapt to changing rules and circumstances, and manage his tyres brilliantly. He's fought with some of the very best drivers of his generation, including Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen, and he has not shirked from the challenge. Having won title six, having won 83 races at the time of writing this, and with 87 pole positions, Hamilton must have an eye on Schumacher's aforementioned record of titles - but he is also just eight wins shy of equalling Schumacher's win record as well. What once looked beyond reach, suddenly seems vulnerable. No matter what people may say about Hamilton as a person, his talent cannot be questioned.
