And that is definitely that for Hamilton's WDC chances.

Hamiltons car caught fire before he'd set a lap - fuel leak apparently. It'll likely require a full rebuild, so he'll be starting from the pit lane.

At Hungary it's basically impossible to overtake, so baring Rosberg suffering a problem in the race, he'll be 40 points behind. He'll also have burnt through another engine and set of components, which means he'll probably start having grid penalties in a few races.

This is definitely looking suspicious now.  I cannot believe it is just BAD LUCK?  I cannot see how anyone can believe it is . There ought to be some investigating as I fear Hammy's life could be in danger or he could be seriously injured.  WHY HIS CAR AND NOT ROSBERG'S!!!!

Muppet or not there is nothing normal about these incidents.  Andy of these incidents could have not only injured Hamilton but any other driver could have involved.  I cannot understand why there is no investigation into why it is only his car as safety is paramount, surely.

He certainly ****** up in Silverstone and Austria, but the engine failure in Australia, the brake failure in Hockenheim, the brake failure in Canada and the huge great engine fire in Hungary were completely out of his control.

Confirmed - he needs a new chassis, engine and gearbox so will be starting from the pitlane. This also means that he's running out of spare components - up to 4 for all components now (5 for a couple of control units) of a total of 5 allowed all season.

This means that some time in the next few races he will start to receive 5 place grid penalties, and probably more mechanical DNF's. There's now very little chance of him winning the WDC this year.

Does anyone think it's inconceivable that all these 'mishaps' could be anything to do with Mercedes approaching Vettel to drive for them?

Amazing drive from Hamilton (again).

You can only wonder where he would have finished had he not started at the back of the grid in the last two races. From last 3rd twice in a row.

Exactly, but it would've been a different story if Lewis had been a good little boy and followed team orders! Rosberg would have won and Lewis would've had to drop back, so the points gap would have grown by goodness knows how much and Lewis's chances of the Championship would've been blown completely! That would've been most unfair, especially as Rosberg started from 1st place and lost it, while Lewis had to fight his way up from 21st in the friggin' pitlane!  shocking What on earth were they thinking?  confused I could understand if the points gap was insurmountable, but 14 points is hardly Mt. bloody Everest is it! Rolling Eyes  One race could be enough to put him in the lead with a little bit of luck....and God knows he's due some! Anyway.......I'm glad he didn't refuse outright which would've blotted his copybook, in fact, I thought he handled it very well! Anyway he's still going to 'have words' with them though!

Meant to say too.....I didn't mind at all that Ricciardo won it! He seems like a nice guy and I just love it when he beats Vettel!  lmao
