Well done Lewis Hamilton

Post by tiger76 » Sun Oct 25, 2020 2:58 pm

92nd grand prix win after victory in Portugal, I guess the next target is 100, and you wouldn't bet against him achieving that at some point next season.

Obviously very good at his profession. Doesn't stop him from being an idiot in my opinion.

I don't have to enlighten anybody. I think he is an idiot. It's my opinion. The way he has behaved during the BLM saga this summer has gone a long way to cementing my opinion of him. The resident sandal wearers will be along anytime to shout me down. I'm going to pass the afternoon by watching the footy. Have a good one.

I don’t get the dislike for Hamilton. He seems like a genuinely nice and humble guy. Doesn’t ever seem to make the headlines for the wrong reasons.

Great achievement. Stats says he the best ever, but I'd still have MS as my principal driver were I running a fantasy all time formula 1 team. Through either luck or nous (I suspect the latter) Hamilton has had the 'form' machinery for the most part of his career, Schumacher cajoled some very average cars to the top step of the podium. Not even sure he'd make my 2nd driver, I think John Surtess would occupy that berth, the only man to be F1 and Moto GP (as is now).

Evidently it's because Hamilton had the nerve to be black. I'm sure the real Gandhi would have been so proud of the flip-flop wearing racist.

Maybe it's the holier than thou attitude whilst he chooses to reside in Monaco so he doesn't pay any UK tax. Or preaching about going Vegan to save the planet while flying around in a private jet and taking millions of pounds in sponsorship money from companies that rely on fossil fuels.

That didn't take long did it. Some people will not see the woods from the trees. Having my opinion does not make me a racist. And I take objection at being called that. People like yourself who cry racism at every given opportunity are part of a wider issue. Anyway. Im logging off now to enjoy the football as I really can't be arsed with responses as pathetic and predictable as this. Have a good day.

I haven’t come across this holier than thou attitude or preaching which is why I don’t get people’s dislike of him.

Whinges about black lives etc, despite having a reasonably good upbringing.
Works for, and is sponsored by, companies with proven links to the Nazi regime and doing well off the back of it, but is happy to take their millions whilst sheltering in tax havens etc.

Brilliant driver and rightly recognised as one of the best of all time, he's just a bellend though outside of F1.

As someone who has met Lewis and also used to think he was an arrogant knob, I can confirm he is. I won’t go into finer details but he had a hissy fit because things weren’t quite right when he was at the establishment where I met him (he was overheard by someone close to me). Part of the problem was having to “mingle” with normal people.

He's certainly widely regarded as arrogant in motor racing circles so your experience doesn't surprise me. Brilliant sportsman which I'm sure is all he cares about but he has always struggled to connect with the public for obvious reasons.

It’s more a case of lefties wanting people to dislike him.so they can call the inevitable . He’s a superb driver and imo an all time “ top 10” driver . It’s almost impossible to compare drivers from different generations and cars though . Only probs is LH has had a car for yrs now that is almost unbeatable whereas say MS always had to fight tooth and nail , Button outpointed him too . Of the last 25 yrs I’d say he’d be matched with Schumacher , Prost, Senna ,Räikkönen and Alonso and possibly Verstappen

He’s the ultimate modern driver, hopeless at car management but incredibly quick when everything is perfect .

I am fully aware. And would have exactly the same response if you had said Lewis is sponsored by a company linked to slavery 150 years ago. We can do nothing about the past but everything about the present.

The issue people have is him supporting a movement that's all about righting the wrongs of slavery whilst taking money from two companies with a more recent history of profiting from slavery of non black people and not saying about it.

Are you talking about BLM? If so, how does him supporting that movement have anything to do with him working for a company that had links with the Nazi party 70 years ago?

This thread went exactly the way I expected when I opened it.

Great driver, one of the best, if not then certainly the top 3. As a person I’ve not a clue what he’s like, my colleagues have met him when working at MCLaren and said he was ok. He doesn’t have the same infectious personality that some of the big stars do, but there’s plenty of top stars that are the same, I doubt they care :lol:

A number of companies have started to openly speak about their connections with slavery in the UK, some are looking at paying reparations as a result.

He's supporting that because its about slavery of and wrongs committed against black people but he keeps quiet when its other people.

I’m being tedious? Do you not think that holding a grudge against Hamilton for driving for a company that once upon a time supported the Nazi party is tedious? Should everyone who drives a Mercedes or BMW or works for either company make a public statement that they don’t agree with their links to the Nazi party more than a lifetime ago?

Yes you are.

I don't hold a grudge, I'm just giving you a reason why some people are bored of him and which causes he chooses to support.
He takes millions from companies who made millions from slavery/genocide, but says nothing about it whilst simultaneously supporting a movement that basically condemns his country of birth stating its built on the back of slavery/genocidal acts.

It is absolutely not on the shoulders of Hamilton to speak up on the links his employers had with the Nazi Party. His support of other worthy causes has no bearing on this.

Fml.

I've already said he should condemn all, not just be selective about which historical acts of slavery /genocide he doesn't like.

I'm not going to write his speech for him though, despite your repeated requests.

It is absolutely not on the shoulders of Hamilton to speak up on the links his employers had with the Nazi Party. His support of other worthy causes has no bearing on this.

I understand entirely the point that you’re trying to make. This isn’t me playing dumb, it’s just me saying that the point you’re trying to make is dumb.
So it's fine having it on his shoulders to support BLM and their campaign against historical links in the UK, but not about his employers or sponsors?

Ace thinking there.

Fml.

I've already said he should condemn all, not just be selective about which historical acts of slavery /genocide he doesn't like.

I'm not going to write his speech for him though, despite your repeated requests.
So you don’t think that Hamilton disapproves of the Holocaust?

Who said he has the plight of the BLM protest on his shoulders? Just because he supports that particular cause doesn’t mean that he should speak up on every single other issue.

I can’t believe I’m having this conversation, even for this forum’s standards.

Dunno, I can only assume he does disapprove of it, but he doesn't mention it because its not something BLM talk about

I'm not asking to support every single issue last I checked.

I'm saying he should treat all genocide and slavery the same.

I can't believe I'm having this chat with you, you're normally much more sensible than to labour over something like this for some obscure reason.

Likewise.

I fail to see how Hamilton driving for Mercedes whilst supporting BLM is in any way hypocritical. I don’t think he should be expected to condemn his employer’s involvement with the Nazi Party. In what way does he not treat all genocide and slavery the same? Can you provide any quotes from Hamilton where he treats different types of genocide and slavery in different ways?
