Presumably cbop is happy for people to say all xxx people should be killed because they’re vermin, if he believes in all free speech? And that there should be no consequences to it either (I.e like people ignoring them in the future and not publishing their bile).

It’s amazing how many people are willing to interpret things a bit differently when it’s about race.
Not looking to defend the eejit but in reality, almost nobody in the western world thinks speech that directly calls for physical harm against a person or group should be allowed.
Except they do, see Anders Brevik for example and only this last month in the county i live in, some teenager got arrested for right wing terror offences.
See also in the last few months, people being arrested in the UK for being members of banned right wing groups with a deep hatred of certain races and religions.


Sadly prejudice has not been eradicated in the western world, the people who peddle it have just learnt to go underground to avoid detection.

My favourite take from this car crash is that Lewis Hamilton had a PR team scouring the internet for anything negative said about him from somebody newsworthy, just waiting for that perfect moment to send out a press release.

The delusion is actually frightening. If this is just a tiny, tiny snapshot from one forum, can you begin to imagine the actual st that Lewis has had to put up with and be exposed to during his career?!
It's unbelievable isn't it. Particular amazement to me are the ones that say "I don't care about politics, just focus on the racing". The idea that simple decency is somehow "politics" banghead

Well, Sunday will be Lewis's 300th Grand Prix. What one race stands out as his greatest, do we think?

There's a hell of a list to choose from, but I am going for Silverstone 2008, where Hamilton appeared to have been beamed in from another planet.

I like the winning the British grand prix on 3 wheels one. It was dramatic

I just watched that - and Brazil 2008. It was pretty exciting then wasn't it?

I would go with this. Although Coolhands has a good point as this was underrated at the time IMO.

Nice to see respect.

I’ll go with Silverstone 2008 too.

18 months in to his F1 career; he made everyone else in the field look like amateurs.

He’s had that gulf in pace since; Brazil 2021 springs to mind, but it’s been with a distinct car advantage. 2008 was another world though.

I think I particularly like it cos how many people can legitimately say they won a race on only 3 wheels?!

“Yeah I so quick I could beat the others with only 3 wheels on my wagon” etc biggrin

It won't happen again because now that would be 5 laps behind the safety car, red flag, 5 laps behind safety car, rolling start 10 laps of racing red flag and thanks for coming.

Another wet race, Turkey 2020 was great also, LH starting 6th, his team mate spinning repeatedly, Max losing it twice, and so on. Fabulous.

I would add his win in Indianapolis 2007

Lewis had just won his first race in Canada the previous weekend after the disappointment of being told to hold station behind Alonso at Monaco.

He started on pole and had to defend under intense pressure from Alonso and never put a foot wrong.

It was only his 7th F1 race but it was clear that he was a match for Alonso and therefore one of the top drivers.
