Well done to Lewis.

Hamilton is never going to get fired for speaking out. Kimi just doesn't care what he says but I agree with both.

Today it is well done Lewis! Yesterday when I posted the same thing on the forums on this site I received nothing but insults! What a difference a day makes!

He has credibility. You don't.

Nicely put. Not. Why not be pleasant in a reply? It's not hard and she was hardly being confrontational.

I take your point, but I'm afraid I have zero courtesy to extent to that poster.

So you take no interest in what medical experts have said, or governments have said, or people on a forum offering an alternate view to yours....
But if Lewis says it you take notice?

Wow...
"what would Lewis do..."
Interesting way to live a life...

Your conclusions are misplaced. LucyP was posting in a confrontational way yesterday on another thread on this forum, derailing the thread and souring the tone to the point I stopped reading it. Then comes on here and complains that noone listened. Perhaps posting with more manners and respect will result in fewer reactions like longblackcoat's.

Confrontational? Only because this site is full of ignorant, deluded, deniers. Suddenly they all are looking a bit stupid as Corona is in the paddock, McLaren has pulled out, Hamilton is criticising the decision to even be in Australia, Vietnam being postponed as will Bahrain.

Give it rest will you? I get that people didnt agree with you in the F1 cancelled thread (personally I did), but speaking ill of the site isn't going to do anything other than annoy everyone.

Not surprised after McLaren dropped out. Dont think anything like this has happened before, will be interesting to see the fallout. Sad that we won't have a GP this weekend, but it's fair enough.

This is it, the bottom line. Mass hysteria or not, life has changed. It got very real very quickly and the little things we do in life, simple pleasures are altering before our eyes.
I think at this point its unfair to suggest people are over reacting.
F1 teams haven't followed PH threads and sided with the naysayers, they have realised that health and safety of staff is important.

Wider picture now is like someone said all the people who make money from sporting events, the cafes, hotels etc etc.....
That is ultimately what will possibly tip things into carnage territory.

I am gutted about the events being shelved, i have paid for sky and bt sport for MotoGP, I have no glee in this, but it was getting obvious that F1 could not just blindly carry on.
No one has done anything based on "well some people on forums think this looks bad on us"....
It is not any posters on here's fault they shelved it...
