Is Hamilton killing Formula 1?
  • Yes- Watching a Formula 1 race should put me on the edge of my seat. I should not know who will win every race.
  • No- This is a sport about dominance and Hamilton is simply the most dominant.
  • Other- I'll explain in the comments.

  • No, he's not killing F1. The fact is that Mercedes put the time and resources into the development of their car to maximize their results in the Turbo Hybrid era. Their designs and engineering guaranteed an advantage going into the 2014 season. What you should be talking about is how none of the other engine builders or constructors has done anything to mount a serious challenge to Mercedes. Although, it could be argued that 2018-2019 should have been serious chances for Ferrari that they inevitably squandered. Or why not talk about why Red Bull has resigned itself to only winning at the technically demanding high-downforce circuits. Hamilton is doing what he does in the best machine possible. It's not his fault that the other teams can't muster the combination of driver and car to challenge him.

    • Sensible words and well written, Drivetribe is click baiting a bit with this.

      I would also add if Ferrari didn't have to change their engine (quietly dealt with the FIA in private) they would certainly be competing with Mercedes during...

  • It's not really fair to blame it on the person/people winning, rather those who can't. Ferrari have the budget, red bull have a close budget.

  • No, I don’t think so. While I am biased as I am a Hamilton fan, I think Lewis’ current dominance is no difference to that of Schumacher and Vettel. Different eras have different outcomes, and the hybrid era was just more suited to Hamilton and Mercedes. Hopefully the 2022 changes will shake things up, but I don’t think Lewis is killing the sport :)

  • It's not Lewis and Mercedes fault. They are doing the job out there year in year out.

    Its up to the rest to close the gap.

    Its been the name of the game for the last 70 years. Get used to it.

  • No he isn’t. Mercedes dominance and the lack of the ability to overtake/battle is. Races are won with pit stop strategy and tyres more than actual side by side racing which is disappointing. 9/10 races you can predict what will happen
