Angela is also a dab hand with Andrex, apparently.

Poacher turned game-keeper is a good analogy.

For someone who has only benefitted from the constant support of wealthy white management in his chosen career, it's curious that he assumes other black candidates are not being selected into the sport, based upon merit.
There is no racism in the world, you're right. People should just shut up about it, particularly if they benefit from the support of white folk.
Lewis is yet to comment on young black men randomly attacking the Jewish community across the Bronx.

Lewis spends plenty of time in the US but has so far remained silent about this racism.

Curious eh ?
He hasn't commented on the attacks on black Jewish people in Israel either - is that curious?

There was an incident at a Chinese restaurant near to where I live a few weeks ago where a member of staff was verbally abused.

Hamilton has said NOTHING about it.

...... no maybe about it hehe

You’re a a strange individual, that’s for sure. Probably not seen or heard anyone as obsessed with a sportsperson as you. You’re certainly dedicated, I’ll give you that. beer
Actually, it seems you are obsessed with me buttercup hehe
Buttercup? Must be a throwback to your fashion industry days hehe

Some light relief from working out everything a sports figure you’ll never know, should and shouldn’t be saying wink
Wrong again hehe

He owns an apartment opposite one of mine.
He lives in a protective bubble, although is trigger happy preaching to those who live outside such a protective bubble.

Most 16 year olds in Hackney have more real world experience than Lewis wink

Yes, feel free to buttercup me anytime you wish smile

Ahhhhh so you’re obsession with Lewis Hamilton - and what he should and shouldn’t say / think / comment on, is based on first hand experience, because in actual fact: he owns an apartment opposite yours! That’ll do it.

I've been a long time fan of Lewis and probably the only reason I have continued watching F1 for the last 10 years.

I am just in awe of how he seems to get better every year, he is just so consistent at reaching his full potential when it matters.

And he gets no where near the recognition his achievements deserve, yes he may say and do some things not everyone agrees with, but given I am the same age as him I feel like if my every word was scrutinised, people probably wouldn't like some of my opinions.

We are watching greatness that will likely never be replicated in my opinion.

Also glad we now have some other great British drivers around to take the baton once Lewis retires.

I'm a long-term fan too, think that LH deserves recognition as probably the best UK driver ever, and is up in the top 5 drivers of all eras

Going on about how his dog prefers a vegan diet however, pressing his own beliefs on what is obviously a carnivorous animal is just bloody ridiculous.

Lost a lot of respect for him there - would put good money on if a nut roast & a beef joint were placed in front of the dog, which one it would go for first.

Similar to JK Rowling, she wrote a series of hugely successful books but that shouldn't give her any kind of authority on societal or political matters over and above anyone else in the population.

I am just in awe of how he Mercedes seems to get better every year, he Mercedes is just so consistent at reaching his their full PU potential when it matters.

And he Mercedes gets no where near the recognition his they deserve,
Munk FTFY, you silly fanboy...

From someone flaunting his wealth, his jetset lifestyle,even saying he needed the distraction to perform.

To being vegan, BLM protester and environmentalist.

One thing is for sure; Lill'Lewis lost the plot concerning normality a while ago.

The fact is though, that Mercedes and Hamilton DO get the recognition that they deserve. Both are respected as being the best of the best. The fact that they’re together makes for an unstoppable force that will shatter every record in F1; or nigh on. Incredible stuff, especially considering that it’s all being accomplished without the cheating, trickery, bias other drivers / teams have enjoyed during their dominant periods.

First of all we don't know if Mercedes are cheating or not. We do know Mercedes had an advantage early on in the hybrid era because of the ban on development.

Secondly the ease in which the Mercedes drivers in general have been earning their points over these past 6 years says a lot about the technical dominance first and foremost and less about the driver input.

We don’t know Mercedes are cheating? Well, only as far as no other teams have pinned anything on them. It’s pure engineering brilliance, incredible management and the best driver on the grid. Of course they are so dominant. It would be very odd if they weren’t. There’s never been anything like it. British engineering, British factories, British driver. Love it.

As for cheating: Ferrari got caught cheating as recently as last year... you don’t seem upset about that, given your fixation on cheating in general... I’d have thought you would be. Ironically... it would have been good if Ferrari hadn’t been caught out as we’d have them up the front - instead, without the ‘cheating’, they’re nowhere. Perhaps you concur.

If it is just about the car he is driving why have none of his teammates consistently beaten him? only Rosberg manged it and that was more down to the car being unreliable for Lewis.

Did you not see his lap in the rain at Red Bull Ring? how do you explain that?

You must be blind if you think that is just down the the car, also shows that you clearly don't understand motorsport as I have not heard this opinion from any current F1 drivers, ex drivers, pundits and anyone that actually knows what they are talking about.

I couldn't care less what he does or says outside the race track that's not why I follow him, I am not sure in what way his opinions or actions have any affect on you personally, and why it would bother you so much.

If you had over $100m in the bank I very much doubt you would still be flying in economy on Ryanair to Benidorm for your holiday's. If you are earning that sort of money you are clearly not going to living a 'normal' life.

It's very, very clear that Lewis Hamilton is a great driver, the question is how great of a driver he really is.

The current engine format doesn't really answer that question IMO.

I know guys with 10 x that amount who fly economy around Europe. If you didn't know them you wouldn't have a clue they were worth billions.

The ones with proper wealth tend to spend money building new wings at their old university and establishing mentoring programmes, doing something really positive for their old town.

He really would benefit from a better PR manager based on the reactions he generates with his regular screw ups, like the recent antivax post.

He is undoubtedly the best racing driver of his generation and is great to watch work.

He hasn't worked out fully the win friends and influence people thing yet. It's going to be interesting to see how he takes that forward when he retires from driving. Will he disappear or will he do something really interesting and beneficial? Only time will tell.
