Most of the junior formulae in which Hamilton excelled before he got into F1 were one-make formulae. So his car was no better than anybody else's, but he won. Of course he was privileged to have a drive at all, but so was everybody else in the race. And once you start winning, it becomes easier to get sponsorship for the following season in a higher formula.
I wonder whether the contrast is just an issue of the basic level of patriotism in these countries.[/quote]
So...can you explain me why in the one-make formulas there are cars that go fasters that others?? for example top speed, speed inside the corners...
I'm spanish, but not patriotic, I just support the good sportmen. Like Kubica or Alonso. Gilles Villeneuve, AYRTON,Prost, Alesi, Mansell... But I can't understand how people compare LH and Alonso
