Shirley that should be "link" in the chain? Mixed metaphors, "ch-ink in his armour" and "link in the chain" innit.

Grrrrr.

Do an Urban dictionary search for “c-hink in chain”.

Apparently it’s a thing.

But not a good thing.

Best of the last 10yrs imo, put himself in the right car for his 4 titles and done fairly as well. His quali lap this year at singapore is one of the best I have ever seen, probably only topped by Senna at Monaco which i never saw

Hamilton 4/1 to win SPOTY behind Geraint Thomas 9/4 and Harry Kane 7/4

He's my pick but the money says otherwise

Link in a chain isn't really the correct metaphor either - what he really means is "cog in the wheel"

not necessarily, he's paying homage to his team in the statement so perhaps playing his role down with a self deprecating remark was was what he intended.

That's an oft repeated non-sequiteur because a cog is a wheel. It really should be a cog in the machine surely?

FFS he meant to say ‘I’m just a link in the chain” and it came out “I’m just a in the chain”.

That’s it.

Yep, but don't let that stop the whingers ready to pounce on any morsel they can find to use to berate and belittle him.

Did anyone else see Hamilton shepherd Billy monger's mum forwards on the stage at BBC SPOTY in order to try to remind Billy/The BBC that they needed to allow time to thank his parents? What a thoughtful thing to do.

I liked his jacket too - reminiscent of something Avon in Blake's 7 would wear.

Didn’t notice that. Did notice his reference to the ‘slums’, though.

Stevenage must be pleased........... wink
