On the linked BBC article Lewis Hamilton is quoted:
I've never felt favourite but it's always easier when you're chasing someone than defending.
Nothing to do with the other Driver's skills of course? The almighty Schumacher never had this problem!
Yes Lewis, you are a good driver and in the next few years when you've found your feet and honed your skills - you will be unbeatable. At the moment though, you aren't. The first corner at Spa proved this - Alonso kept his ground and you lost out!
Personally I think Hamilton's points have all come from the start of the season when he did so well - since then he's been in the top 5 - but not at the top. The start of the season was very convenient for him, because of the hours he put in at McLaren training simulators which none of the other drivers of any car had been able to do at their teams.
Unfortunately for Lewis, his luck's running out faster than his track experience is gaining.
