Hamilton- India

Button- Silverstone

Webber- Oz

Many more to add i'm sure.


Another of Hamiltons I feel is Malaysia. All be it with the exception of 2007 (2nd) and 2012 (3rd), he hasn't finished higher than 5th.


It is hard to tell with Hamilton if it is Mclaren specific, but he has never done well at Silverstone with the exception of the downpour.

Kimi back in the Mclaren days was also poor at Suzuka. DC even had to hold off passing him in the 2003 WDC decider.

Hamilton's weakest track is Bahrain IMO. He's always been pretty anonymous there.

Apart from 2009 which I consider to be one of his best ever dives I agree. Saying that he has still stood on the podium twice there,.

Surely Brazil has to be one of Hamilton's worst tracks. Apart from 2012, he's never done particularly well there. Six appearances, two retirements, three mid-points positions and a third place.

Saying that, he did come from very far back in 2009 to secure 3rd.

I'm wondering what the strongest driver's favourite circuit is.

It was the first track he ever beat Alonso at. 2007. Who won the race in 2005 and 2006? Alonso.

I'd give Schumacher Catalunya. He's won there 6 times, and finished 2nd when he was stuck in 5th gear in 1994.

Also, I'd give Vettel Abu Dhabi.
2009 - Won
2010 - Won
2011 - Pole position, probably would've won if it wasn't for a freak puncture
2012 - 24th to 3rd

2009, won because of Hamilton's DNF. Although Vettel was catching Hamilton just before they retired Hammy.

2011, it's not know what the exact cause was, perhaps the way he hit the outside kerb after the start that caused the puncture?

2012, had the fastest car, considering the toro rosso drivers got out of the way, safety cars to bunch the pack up, hamilton retiring to give him the podium spot, setup changed after qualifying, no wonder he made that many places up.

However it still remains a strong circuit for the young Sebbo.

I'm not hating on him, but that's the facts really.

I think Rosberg also performs particularly well at Singapore, top 5 results at Mercedes, 2nd in 2008 for Williams and fought for the win in 2009 until he made that mistake and crossed the white line exiting the pits.
