@prisoner-monkeys Whatever it is, we don’t know & we probably won’t know because no one knows what happens behind closed doors & I’ve always been concerned about Lewis himself ever since he’s been tweeting a lot.
There’s a really fine line in modern sport (not just in F1) between professionalism & pure honesty, ignoring the deleted & thoughtless tweets like the data telemetry, Lewis is being himself & expressing what’s instantly on his mind, of course in terms of emotions we sometimes find it difficult to read into words (they can be meaningless) whilst you also want to be weary of what you say or write but isn’t this what the majority of fans want from drivers? To speak their minds & not be the ‘robots’ they claim drivers to be, now everyone is discussing about how it offends the team, affects the contract discussion & to some extent, people are still complaining.
Social media (namely Twitter) has been a powerful tool used by famous people to get them closer to their fans & supporters, even then they’re still scrupulous about what they mention & Lewis at the moment is slightly distancing himself from that mindset, you can tell via his use of informal language like ‘mofo’ & ‘homies’, I’m sure there’s plenty of more, maybe it’s kind of a side-effect with his auntie recently passing away, I don’t know & maybe for some reasons unknown as well but honestly – they may be mindless & offensive but it’s honesty & a great insight. Referring back to the fine line, just next time, let’s hope Lewis can hit that line nicely.
