Yup, car played a kay part in Hamilton's records but the same can be said about Schumacher's Ferrari time (he won two at Benetton, which wasn't dominant though). I'm not a fan of F1 but I like MotoGP. Way more excitement in motorbike races (for a simple reason: easy overtaking).I can't get into this sport because the car makes the biggest difference. I prefer sports like cycling and tennis.
yeah there were a couple of years when Vettel could have challenged, but he was too inconsistent himself, he is a shadow of his former self this season.Formula 1 has been pathetically uninteresting for the better part of the last decade. Hamilton was just the one guy to have had by far the best car most of the time. Also, Bottas is laughably bad most of the time (Rosberg was much tougher competition but decided to call it a day too soon), so to add to the lack of competition from other teams he's also had it easier than anyone else I can recall in that regard.
