Where was Hamilton's stance on Human Rights? Or does that not matter in F1?
The hypocrisy is deafening.
Pay your taxes Hamilton.

And right on cue we have the troll farm of closet racist Hamilton haters reporting for duty to copy and paste the script given to them for the umpteenth time. Don't you think its time to get some new material? Removed

Lewis has two things more important than human rights; his salary and winning world titles! It compares to environmentalists who jet around the world and drive their children a short distance to school!

Every time you see someone talk about closet racism or wolf whistling I always get the impression they're talking nonsense. With all due respect, there are legitimate reasons to dislike Hamilton and his opinions and stating as such doesn't make you a racist.

Well, your mate is a sucker, Lewis has no-one to beat as he is the reigning champion therefore the headline is always going to be 'Lewis wins'.
It's everyone else's goal to beat Lewis, therefore it will always be '*whoever* beat's Lewis'
No he's not a sucker, he just doesn't follow F1 and didn't believe me when I told him about the institutional closet racism thats rife in the sport and subtly shows itself in many ways including how the headlines change. I told him I could prove it so he thought he'd make an easy tenner but it just backfired thanks to the BBC proving me right with the headlines this weekend. Removed

Why is this in the sport section?
Couldn’t agree more. F1 is so trashy. Even the commentators are forced to inject as much enthusiasm as they can in their voices to make it appear more interesting than it is. All F1 fans should be offered help and a penis extension to help them recover. Removed

You know what’s great, hearing the national anthem being represented in another country by a British person (ok, let’s forget it’s proceeded by the German anthem) :-D. Celebrate the fact that he’s one element of putting the Great back into Great Britain. I’d love to see Lando and George up there too one day. I’m sure their time will come.

Momenterially, but normal service resumed. Biggest team in F1, fastest car for last 7 years 6 world titles in that time. He's no underdog. Used to love him for his achievements but then he got political. Its motor SPORT. We have the politics everywhere else leave it out of sport. I want to watch cars race, not interested in your tough life as your not interested in mine as it should be.

Hamilton has won all of his world titles by cheating - and he knows that but he can’t be punished and everyone knows why !!!! Removed

In my humble opinion Sir Lewis is the greatest driver of all time. However, I am no doubt biased, I am British never really got into F1 until the 80's, never really knew those drivers previous. Each generation produces greatest drivers. What we can all agree with is that Sir Lewis the the most successful driver of all time.

What would be nice if he paid taxes and vat like the rest of us in this country. He gets a knighthood and then runs back to home Monaco to hoard up his riches.

I wonder how many Brits will defend F1 when Lewis stops winning or retires. Then exactly the same people who are now defending the "excitement" will be the first to should how boring it has all become. While Schumi carried the bore flag in Germany, now it is Lewis in England (and not even GB). Germans don't watch F1 even though it is supposedly THEIR car. LOL. There is a reason: BORING.

Funny how the Hamilton haters have stopped the usual "its the car" nonsense.
"It's not the car". There. Said it. On the other hand, his views and his support of a certain group of violent agitators . . . Removed

at the start of the race, verstappen was asked to comment on how much more difficult it is to go against hamilton and he said as far as he's concerned all the drivers are the same. at the end of the race hamilton said verstappen is a very good driver while verstappen said next time he doesn't want any tactics he just wants to beat him on pure pace.
