People really are desperate for any reason to diminish Hamilton. In Germany they idolised Schumacher even though he was a cheat. We have one of the top drivers in history yet some people just want to find a reason to hate. Really sad British trait.
In Germany they Idolised Hitler too. I'm sure he was a wrong un' as well. Sometimes people in Britain can see passed the success and look a bit deeper. Removed

I mean, there are bad takes, and then there's this one from someone who immediately invokes Godwin's law and is so well educated that they confuse the word "past" for "passed."

Are you seriously making comparisons between hilter and hamilton and then putting yourself on a pedestal as some sort of insightful genius that can see what others cannot.

Sweet Jesus!
I'm surprised Hamilton didn't insist on a black driver..... Removed

Almost everyone on the grid could do the same thing in that Mercedes. The difference between Hamilton and the rest though is his decision making, consistency and his raw talent at overtaking. Something the rest lack.

Of course this has taken Hamilton a long time to perfect as we saw some silly decision making early on in his career. Also shows Bottas for what he is, support to a better driver.
Mate, George Russell is one of the outstanding talents if not THE outstanding talent (Verstappen aside) of a very talented generation. He's not 'anyone'. Watch some racing why don't you. Removed

Why Verstappen aside?? Verstappen has potential but has still to achieve anything of real note.

Brilliant, can't wait for the race.
Just as I predicted, the Hamilton haters and closet racists are desperate for George to do well so they can use that to make the false case that Lewis is not good.

I predicted it and you will now see that message being pushed out by the pundits, media and trolls all working together.

No, just delighted that Russell has one race to show us how good he is, which is hard to see in the Williams right now. It's Bottas we all want him to beat! #BackTheBrits

I hope that you're not referring to me as a Hamilton hater, far from it, I think he is up there with Jim Clark, Fangio, and Senna, but I also highly rate George Russell, I think he is a future champion, just looking forward to see what he can do in a good car.

It just goes to show fasted car equals fastest driver. It makes a mockery of the honours system for people to suggest Hamilton should be awarded a knighthood. To do so would only inflate his ego for the privilege of twiddling a steering wheel whilst sat on his ass.

So anyone who doesn’t agree LH is the greatest is a racist ? - 2020 logic at its finest. I don’t think he is the best driver of all time, and I’m neither a racist or remotely right wing. Very immature comment I must say.
The people who I believe are the closet racists are people like you who pretend that everyone is being painted as a racist when in-fact its only the section of trolls that spend all day attacking Lewis at every opportunity.

You closet racists hide behind and amongst decent people who are not racists but have the occasional criticism of Lewis.

Perhaps you may have the courage to clarify whether your ‘you closest racists’ comment is aimed at me, or just thrown at all and sundry. If it’s at me, firstly I’ll say you may wish to check my post history with regards to F1 and carefully read all of my posts today. I am not anti LH. If you are falsely calling me a racist with no evidence or facts I’ll be taking it further. Please clarify.
If fact comment and account reported, making totally unfounded accusations of racism towards an individual without any basis of fact or evidence is outrageous and has legal implications. Will take this as far with the BBC mods as I have to. You should be permantly banned, your comment is a disgusting outrage. How dare you Removed

Jenson Button won the 2009 drivers championship in an illegal Brawn GP car. Cheated a clever loophole in the complex rear aerodynamics regulations that made their car faster than anyone else and an illegal Diffuser added for extra power. Not to mention Jenson Button 2005 Honda with its extra 11kg hidden fuel tank. But then again Jenson Button looks the perfect clean cut "English chap" doesn't he?
If Shamilton was in the Brawn you wouldn’t have said that retarded statement ?????? Did you forget 2 other teams ran the double diffuser, so it was never illegal you noob ???????? Removed
