It will be interesting to see if Hamilton, with the rubber-stamping of a world title, mellows his all-out attack approach. Is there still evolution to come from him or will he always be this brilliant but flawed performer?

The pressure is off him now and if the car is good, he can just relax into his enormous talent. If the car is not, then perhaps we will see him grow further as he is presented with the challenge of developing a car that isn't an automatic front-runner for the first time in his Formula 1 career.
