Mansell is Right

1992 World Champion Nigel Mansell is right about McLaren rookie Lewis Hamilton.  Just as things have gone right for him so far, the tables can turn and all could start to go wrong.  It's too soon to tell if his success is his skill or the superior car.
"What can you say?" Mansell, who is now pushing on the single-seater careers of his sons Leo and Greg, said.  "We had to win races and challenge for championships before we got the rewards.  Now you seem to get the rewards before you achieve." Mansell insisted that he has no hard feelings for Hamilton, but credited much of the 22-year-old rookie\'s impressive debut so far in 2007 to McLaren. He commented: "McLaren have been way overdue for success. Timing is everything.  When a driver can arrive with a team and an engine coming right, it makes a difference.  No disrespect to him."But Mansell hints that Hamilton's immaculate preparation for F1 since first meeting Ron Dennis at the age of ten, makes comparisons with earlier greats unsuitable.
It's still early in the season. You can bet that Alonso wants to win as many races as possible.
