Lewis Hamilton Could Teach Arsenal A Thing Or Two

Lewis Hamilton today took his rightful place as the Formula 1 world champion.

In an exhilarating finish to a breathless race that saw the title slip from Lewis's grasp only to have it handed back on the last corner, the Englishman showed the fighting spirit and backbone throughout the entire season (after suffering set back after set back) that a few Arsenal players would do well to take note of.

The 23 year old never gave up, never stopped fighting and always believed.

Congratulations Lewis Hamilton.

Your Comments

Totally agree, star man, great season, never let the unfair penalty points affect him, deserved his first championship, first of many hopefully. Also thought Massa was a gent today, should be a good few years of racing between them. Thanks to Arsneal for giving Villa the chance of taking 3rd tomorrow night as well. Coming down to the Emirates for the first time on the 15th, can't wait!
The Fear
Yeah I felt sorry for Massa (but not ferrari, I found their celebrating hillarious), he's a cool guy and was genuinely upset. I wish I could give the same respect to the fans at the track. Hope you enjoy your visit to our stadium JF, but not completely of course ... lol
To be fair I doubt Lewis Hamilton would know what to do with a Rory Delap long throw.
Agreed, think Ferrari got the rub of the green this season again so to see them celebrate and then realise was very funny! Should be a good visit and a great match. Will no doubt speak before Rocky and do an interview exchange!
The Fear
Lol Murph ..... maybe not but I bet he would deal with a David Bentley 40 yard sighter better than Almunia.
That goal wasn't even good.
Lewis is an Arsenal fan.
Professor Calculus
Well at least he's got something to be happy about this weekend Prof!! lol
ferrari celebrating before it was over was abit like the 4RSEN4L bench on wednesday. hillarious. both teams had the smiles wiped off there arrogant faces.
But not quite as hilarious as WHL celebrating Robbie Keane's last minute penalty thinking they'd stopped us winning the league. How we laughed.
Little Dutch
Or nowhere near as funny as Spurs crapping themselves on the last day of the season and saying we did it!! True comedy.
lLD. your just making things up now n talking out of your 4RSEN4L. arsene's john cleese impressions r getting better by the week!!
I was there dspurs64, I saw it. Plus, it's all available to view on the Arsenal Invincibles DVD..........We release DVDs for actual achievements you see.
Little Dutch
why do you spuddies get bitchslapped like that every time?
LD you cant win an arguement with the braindead. so let just leave it. im right your wrong. LOOK IN TO MY EYES LOOK IN TO MY EYES!!!!!
he looks like an older verision of theo................and we are the COME BACK KINGS.LD ye did win league at white hart lane ye wud of won it anyways....congrads ..and previous 3 seasons??......but im lookin for ward to fans sayin wenger out.........only a matter of time now.
LoL what? Arsenal fans asking Wenger out? These ****ing morons are soo envious of Master Wenger that they want us get rid of our gem? Like how they do their stopid managers for fun? Please.. Arsenal Board has more BRAINS,LOGIC, and SANITY that **** Spurs can ever dream off. And Hats off to Lewis and Mclaren. He has shown that the title is not won until the last minute, so Arsenal cmon!!!
Well done to the young man.
HAHAHA that's so correct he does look a bit like theo
Mix feeling, i dnt know if i should laugh or sad that a bottom 3 club's fans are laughing at ironic..
FACTS ye cud not beats us =us are 6 points off top we are 6 points 7th if ye can still think ye can win the league we can still get top hallf....easy mathes aint it....27 games left, on another note dont say much for ye not been able to beat a bottom 3 team, 3-1 -4-2 = 4-4. that says it all.
sorry lads the cheslki boys already did a hamilton thread...oh man that must lost out again! ouch!
congrats to the man, im not the biggest mclaren fan but he is British so i have a right to cheer for him.
Rigged, I tell ya. T Glock was promised a Chelsea season ticket by Mclaren, so he dropped back.. RIGGED!! :)
JT - If that would have happened he'd have won the race trying to get away from it!! Simgee - you think only one site is allowed to offer congratulations to Lewis Hamilton?
Just heard Rory Delap is entering F1 next year, he's going to blast down the track for 35 yards and see who can sort him out for the rest.
Motor Racing's not a sport as it has no ball, FACT.
Rocky7, mate. Feck you! :)
LOL i was so STOKEd with spurs win over liverpond this weekend,maybe if one of the ladies came in for Cesc you would play better! Man that pie must taste like *****!
Maybe if you bought one or two of our ladies you wouldn't be in the bottom three?
Little Dutch
Ha ha ha! wow did you work hard on that one little dutch girl?
Congrats from Arsenal fans will mean more to Hamilton as he is an Arsenal fan also. He played in the same school footy team as Ashley Young, another Arsenal fan. Apparently he was pretty good at football as well.
Not very, whenever a supporter of a club in the relegation zone comes to gloat, one doesn't have to work too hard to sweep their hollow goading to one side. Good luck in your ongoing battle against the drop and apologies for gifting one of your relegation rivals three points.
Little Dutch
lol so he tries the smart sarcastic ploy. Cute... Im so offended. shame how you love to taunt others when you cant take a sip of it yourself, now you disguise the embarresing loss to stoke with an emphatic victory of Hamilton. Like i said how does the pie taste?
No sarcasm, Spurs are 19th (potentially 20th come 10pm) after 11 games. The article (which wasn't written by me but hey ho) is actually being used to criticise Arsenal. I can take plenty of it myself, see below an article I wrote called Match Ratings: Arsenal Ladies v Tottenham Hotspur, quite self depricating. It's perhaps a measure of how poor your club is that you all feel it's o.k. to laugh at ANY team in the league when you currently sit 19th having played a game more than the side below you. There again, if your club sees fit to release DVDs of early season draws, then I suppose the fans can hardly be blamed for celebrating failure.
Little Dutch
Lewis is a fan of Arsenal? Must be due to the fat that he looks like Theo's older brother! :)
Yep, Well Done to Hamilton, he deserved it! A pity he felt that he couldn't stay in this country!
Yeah well done to Lewis Hamilton! I think ATV/ATVO should get him in when they do those celebrity fan interviews. And for Tomf and those who don't think he looks a bit like Theo: Theo once said his family and gf also thought so, and that people on the streets thought he's Hamilton before (of course that's not too bad when it turned out to be Theo Walcott).
no rocky but ur late and y waste a thread when ones already up and running
if theres one thing my father taught me, when people come to gloat at you, and when people come to put you down and criticize you, they must be so scared of you, because they know what you are capable of, and that means the only way for you to go, is up. i hope our player realizes this.
