Now let me see - All those F1 Fans banging on about Lewis Lewis Lewis and look how well he drove in the wet once and its the driver not the car - so a guy who hasn't qualified above 12th - no points in 36 races - one day to get used to a car that is too small for him (has to wear smaller shoes) - goes out and has fastest lap on not one but two practise sessions!! - Arise Sir George
A driver who’s been groomed by Merc for 5 years. Who drives the Merc simulator. Who drives for a team supplied by Merc. Who constantly out drives his team mate & has been skirting around 12th consistently in a bad car.... yeah, your right. Anyone can drive the Merc and come first. Boats does it all the time... oh, wait. No.

Maybe you could drop out of your Ford Focus and put it on pole. Moron.

Its hilarious that all the Lewis Lovers have left to defend the undefendable is that Lewis once drove well in a wet race - is that the final line of defence for the blindingly obvious that Lewis is simply a primadonna in the fastest car!! Bye bye Lewis - youre a busted flush!

You still have to earn your place at the top. Your point is a simple one. Hamilton has out driven every single partner he’s ever had. Swallow that pal.

Go on George show the Hamilton huggers how very very average he is. . lol
Oh before the far left antifa scum jump on board saying I'm racist try abit harder my moms from Gabon, and my Dad is a white supremacist from Nigeria.
Go on then all you rancid folks who get off on calling people racist for no reason? Now what? Idiots
Calling people racist for no reason is the same as calling me the N word.

I'm no Lulu-Lover either, but like or loathe him, it is ridiculous to say say he's average.

He is currently the best driver on the grid, in the best car in the best team and has an agerage team mate.

We will never know how he would cope with another top class driver, because it will never happen.

Look what happened in 2016. He gor rattled by Rosberg's presence, and he wasn't exactly top drawer

So I’m a racist and white supremacist because i don’t rate Shamilton and I think he’s a petulant child and has zero fashion sense, he’s not the greatest of all time by far.... all you fan boys need to dry you’re eyes and shut up, it’s the car and not him ?????? You are all ??

SPOTY team by a mile but you cannot give it to the individual sat in the car so many "individual " achievements come before him and maybe one will a). Not be political in one dimension and b). Might just have a personality

I have never been hypocritical about Hamilton. He may well be a decent driver & Russell may be a prodigy behind the wheel but the car technology has lots to do with the outcome. I simply don't like Hamilton, his tax avoidance in Monaco & his stance on certain political issues. Well done George Russell, go & win for the UK taxpayer!
He pays loads of UK tax. It was all laid out in an article last week.
He's in the UK's top 5000 in terms of tax paid.
It's a shame you haven't learnt how to read.
You really are thick as a plank aren't you

It’s not how much tax he pays, it’s the proportion of what he earns that is important. A billionaire paying 1% pays more than a nurse paying 25%. Is that fair???

This is not his F1 earnings as he pays zero tax in Monaco. This is other money unrelated and earned in UK. He is only allowed to step foot in UK for 40 days.
You're an idiot. If LH is in the top 5000 of UK tax payers that must mean he even pays tax he isn't legally obliged to pay as a non resident. Removed

....but not at the same percentage of his earnings ! Hardly surprising the (p.r.) article came out in the same year as he,s chasing the record & a knighthood. Some people just don,t know when they,re being spun.
The leader of the house of commons hides his money in the caymans, but let's have a go at a racing driver. Removed

Totally agree.. but I guess LH is more of a marketing tool as he's got more brand value. What happened in FP1 & FP2 is exactly what a lot of LH fans didn't want to see. Hope GR wins on Sunday.

I HATE BEING RIGHT ALL THE TIME.

Just as I predicted the Hamilton haters who have been hoping and praying for George to do well are now coordinating to flood the internet with posts trying to write off Lewis' decade long string of amazing performances and 7 world titles all on the basis of two practice sessions.

The inherent hypocrisy and dishonesty of the Hamilton haters is revealed.
Hamilton has been a good driver and has well over achieved. As a person he's a woke hypocrite with racist tendencies, that's why more and more people turning away from him....George has a great future, but I doubt he'll get Pole or win the race! Removed

How ridiculous calling Grosjean a hero ! He got out of a car that was on fire as anyone would, he didn't save anyone else, he has been an awful driver all season, and the crash was entirely his fault.

Which is why Bottas has so many wins and world titles, right?

Be honest people don't like Hamilton because he is a Black man and that makes them feel insecure and angry. Tax avoidance is what most drivers do but you never mention them. Hamilton sticks up for those who cant - the Disabled, Black Lives Matter and to the black haters thats just a step too far.
John Terry and you are one and the same. Living a Lie and loving it.

You of course would drive faultlessly never missing an apex. Get a life. Try to not remain a moron. Removed

It will be interesting to see what happens with Hamilton and his positive test for Covid-19. The BAME are proven much more susceptible to the virus and also have had much more severe symptoms including the Long-Covid. The other concern is to ensure Hamilton is not a super spreader. Mercedes may not let him return as they have matters wrapped up in ever category and Russell is doing a good job.
Don't refer to people with non white skin as "the Bame" please and no it is not proven not everything you read is true find out the identity of someone first before you just lump them into some generic category called the BAME I have dark brown skin and I traced my dna to Hebrew israelite as an undisputed fact so no one is just BAME from where?

As a gentleman, I apologise if I in anyway offended you. I would never under any circumstances make a remark to offend anyone of colour. I used BAME in the context of what I had understood from reading the medical journals etc. All the best to George Russell on a great performance and hopefully more to come.

All this fanboy hype about a knighthood for Hamilton is a joke. He's done nothing of value for mankind and lives a life of privilege. The knighthoods and gongs should go to the brilliant NHS and the medical research/science community for the incredible job they have done in getting a Covid Vaccine developed and tested in a staggeringly short timeframe. They are the real heroes. Go George Go.
