Lewis Hamilton asterisk — * First WDC as a Rookie

There’s been a lot of talk in the press and blogosphere about Lewis Hamilton and whether he should have an asterisk beside his name if he becomes the Formula One world drivers champion. I say yes! – Not because he may have won as a result of the Mclaren – Ferrari spying scandal, but because he’s the only rookie to ever win the championship and he did so fairly over his teammate and previous WDC, Fernando Alonso.

Lewis Hamilton, is one of the best new drivers to enter into Formula One since Michael Schumacher and Ayrton Senna. If he wins the championship, he deserves to be recognized for beating Alonso and the rest of the field and earning it during his rookie year. I say put the asterisk beside his name and let it indicate the first rookie ever to win the championship.
