I must confess that in the last few years I have totally lost interest in F1. During the 90s and into the 2000s I was a huge fan but it just seems that the technology has taken over and turned it into little more than a computer game.
I'm not saying these guys don't have balls of steel, or that they're not amazing drivers but it all comes across as being rather sterile where technology is more of a deciding factor on the result than raw human skill is!
In some ways, because of this, I'm not sure that Hamilton will ever get the credit he deserves. He is hardly 'personality of the year' but even so, from an outsiders perspective, I feel that even if he keeps winning titles until he's 80, his name will never be whispered in awe such as Schumacher, Senna and Lauda's are!
