Whatever it is, it's no surprise. Is it?
No but i'd rather him act a bit more like James Hunt rather than Justin Bieber. I get what he's trying to do but not sure it's fully working. He should be thinking "what would Senna do" and it wouldn't be this.

Those press conferences are st anyway, boring old press asking dopey questions trying to get a reaction,...
They should do the 'dieter rencken racing lines' drinking game hehe

I still think its a good part of the racing weekend, it kicks things off at least.

As for snap-chat lewis, I saw him arsing about with Alonso a few weeks ago in a press conference and thought is it a 'confidence / relaxed mind game' showing how unphased he is at the start of a weekend - or is it disrespectful?

Who actually watches these press conferences anyway? As it is there are always different drivers doing them at each circuit, so its not like he is doing one before every race weekend.
I suppose it could be a bit disrespectful to his fellow drivers who are taking it seriously, the snap of Kimi for instance is quite funny with his serious expression. Not sure why it would be disrespectful to the fans, seeing as the Japanese like their tech and this kind of stuff, maybe they would enjoy seeing a driver do something they probably do on a daily basis.

This is all very funny and all but just so you know the joke has been done to death now and you can go back to writing properly now.

This st is killing me bruv, man it's stuffy in here....

Anyway being preached to by a person that chose to call themselves HustleRusell and writes "funny and all"

Back on topic, should Kimi for example have the right to decide if he wants certain images of himself going out into the public domain? Sainz seems to have taken it well but he could surely of been a bit annoyed

Once you've turned up to a press conference it's a bit late for that.

Where's the 'huge audience' that was allegedly disrespected? This is probably the most attention ever given to a pre-race press conference. If the press hadn't made such a big thing out of it then nobody outside of the room would have even noticed.

Well OK but Lewis may want kids who follow him to see him with rabbit ears on aged 31, but Kimi might not want that.

If you every see a clip of journalists in the room it's no surprise that there's zero energy in the room - the journalists look disinterested as they're asking the question and the drivers feed off that. They also ask the same tedious questions each fortnight and, I guess because of the nature of the job, they don't actually appear to listen to the answer - they look down to make notes on their pads while the drivers are speaking - it's a terrible setup.

For what it's worth, 'could've' and 'would've' take exactly the same number of key strokes as 'could of' and 'would of'. I'm just trying to make you sound less dense, take it or leave it.

Social media has a big part to play in bringing in a younger fan base to F1 and it is at the core of Chase Carey's vision for the future commercial success of the sport. Hamilton’s relevance is a huge asset, as is Verstappen and his ‘attitude’. Like it or not we’re going to see more of it.

Everyone complains that drivers are corporate robots these days. They don’t drink, smoke and shag about anymore. This is the mechanism by which corporate robots will become marketable, accessible and relatable.

OK Hustle....
I for one am pretty honored that a guy with your literary skills, chose's not to be spending his time writing beautiful tomes for our and future generations to enjoy, but instead loving writes on car forum under the guise of "HustleRussell"..
Thank you.
Genuinely..

If you ever watch a Press Conference, some of the preposterous questions they are asked, they often muck about....

Drivers are paid to do they job, sure press conferences are boring but still they are paid to do that. Journalist are paid to interview them, ask those questions. One doesn't do his/her job and then it will be a problem. Simple as that.

Lewis Hamilton was disrespectful for those who are just doing their job. And to if fans should ask those questions...I'm pretty sure that those questions would be even more stupid and boring.

The rabbit ears is from post processing an image. It makes no difference if it happens then or years later, good luck preventing that.
