Well, im not entirely sure.
When I started searching for news and reports on the internet about F1, I first started, obviously, with websites in spanish. Argentinean ones are rubbish, because they get all the information from european media, but it’s badly done.
Spanish media had no idea what they were talking about. Honestly, before Alonso, they hardly new anything about the sport. So I had to start trying my best with my poor english on F1.com and other sites. And I have to say, at least F1Fanatic, doesn’t seem biased at all.
I don’t know italian. But I sincerely doubt italian media said anything about Schumacher winning in Austria 2002. And if it was, there would not be much fuss about it. Because, lets face it, it was Ferrari winning.
I don’t know if it’s bias or not. Maybe it’s just an italian newspaper writing to italians about an italian team. You bet media here was already saying Jose Maria Lopez was a F1 champion waiting for his chances, even if that couldn’t be more rubbish.
Sometimes they go mad that way, which is went things start going wrong, supporting their driver no matter what. Or starting wars between the media and the people that consumes that.
Few spaniards like Hamilton. And maybe there are some guys in UK that like Alonso, but they are not the majority after 2007. All because of that media war.
That’s why one should read a bit deeper, to take that bias aside. And try not to go mad if there’s something one doesn’t like.
