Yet another bad day for the Hamilton haters; dear oh dear, you guys just don't get it, do you? The argument that "Lewis only wins because he has the best car" has been shown to be especially specious today. He demonstrably had an inferior car to the Red Bull but still won and on older tyres too! If he keeps up this form then 2021 could be a LONG year for the haters....

Nice to see the racists grasping, reaching and furrowing their brows in a vain attempt to understand what just happened.

Hamilton winning in a slower car with tyres 10 laps older than Max has them in mass panic and questioning reality.

People that fail to acknowledge the greatness of Hamilton is purely for one reason and for one reason only. While Sir 'Wilko' the drug cheat (come on, everyone knows that he took his inhaler a few too many times) never gets the same level of scrutiny. Talk about double standards. Removed

The fact that a distinctly average driver like Bottas came a comfortable 3rd, shows that Mercedes is still the fastest car.

There's a reason why Hamilton will never change teams or allow for a world class driver to join him in the Mercedes team......

Actually, as usual, the main whining was yet again from Max on the Radio. He whines a lot. Nearly as much as he crashes a lot or breaks his car a lot!
They all give it a good go tbh, although only one got all upset and accused his own team of something beginning with R when his team mate (Rosberg) was doing a bit better than him. Removed

Can the BBC pull out their finger and have a link to your posted comments so you can follow it rather than to have spend ages finding it. They're probably wasting TV licence fee making crap, cheap programs that no-one wants to watch. No wonder that Netflix, Amazon, Apple TV are stealing a march on BBC.

I do wonder if the reason many dislike Hamilton is because they are either consciously or sub-consciously racist.
This would not surprise me in the least, the UK - especially in the provinces where there's lot of support for motorsport - is in my experience frequently unpleasantly racist.

Has he avoided any more VAT recently - hope not - how much UK tax did he pay last year - I guess his conscience is clear.

Mercedes yet again with the fastest car, Idk how that was a "great race" was boring 95% of it. I like how everyone is saying Mercedes have a slower car but they clearly can't read data, Mercedes has better race pace then over one lap. LH has had such a easy 7 world titles compared to MSC.
Were you born an idiot or have you worked at it? Removed
There are some people very defensive about LH's tax position out there - experts all I'm sure

The aeroplane VAT wheez he took is a blatant avoidance scheme - it's the kind of thing that rich people can do and normal people can't

I'm sure it is perfectly legal what he does but I'm guessing it's a minimising activity rather than anything altruistic or patriotic

Nice fellow I'm sure

Hamilton is nowhere near the best driver there has ever been. There is a very, very, long list of drivers better than Hamilton. Oh, and before the politically correct start making accusations of "haters" and "racism" it's actually got nothing to do with that. It's just down to ability and he's way, way down the list. George Russell drove Hamilton's car quicker than he himself did.

That "all the car" bull is backfiring spectacularly today and the Hamilton haters and closet racists are looking very silly indeed.
Closet racists? Really? Grow up and change the record. Just because people dislike a certain sportsperson and that person happens to be coloured, doesn't make them racist. I suppose if you dislike a white sportsperson does that make you racist too? Or is it just a one way thing with you? Hamilton has his dislikers/critics. Live with it and learn some respect for freedom of speech Removed
28/03/2021 20:59:04 7 3

Erm, FYI coloured is racist terminology (not woke or pc, it's just racist). Maybe you should think about exactly what it is about him that annoys you. Is it possible that race based sub conscious bias is involved? (Eg. His hair is annoying, I don't like the way he dresses, he thinks he's malcolm x, etc). Not saying you are a racist person, just that perhaps you haven't noticed race may be a factor

Of course there are racists everywhere. And sexists, homophobics etc - humans can be really awful to each other. But I truly believe that if Hamilton was exactly the same person but white, there would still be a lot of ppl who wouldn't like or support him. He definitely would still not be my favourite driver. So what excuse would his fans come up with then?

One wonders and hopes not but it will sadly be the case for some

But if someone says that they dislike Lewis neither should a presumption be made that that person is a racist - that is also wrong

Through F1 history every driver has their haters, all of them, they are like marmite and Lewis is no exception

But we should be careful about pulling the race card, where there is no evidence of it

To summarise:
- exceeding the track limits there during qualifying was forbidden
- the track notes stated that exceeding the track limits there was allowed during the race
- exceeding track limits to gain an advantage (i.e. overtaking someone) is not permitted anywhere

I hope that clears things up.
