@Philly you kind of nailed it.
In my opinion, Hamilton is today’s spoiled kid of F1 by many tv hosts (BBC especially, their home boy, and unlike Button, more likely to bring ratings, he brings the hip-hop stars to the pits).
Why was Hamilton most penalized driver this season? Maybe because he was involved in most incidents. Is there a conspiracy of stewards/other drivers against him, or simply put his driving style is prone to incidents.
Like others have said, he acts like the other drivers should step aside every time he comes, and even Button isn’t doing it anymore.
