@davidnotcoulthard I’m not sure what point your are trying to make but if it helps I was comparing their attitudes, nothing else. The intelligence reference was something being pushed around in previous comments.
Then again come to think of it, maybe Kanye should employ someone to speak for him as well.
Back to Lewis, he’s killing them on the track which is what he does best.18th April 2015, 8:46 at 8:46 am #297063
Ted Kravitz on Johnny Herbert in the paddock (on foot) because the race was sooo boring
Alternatively Verstappen on Perez would be my pick18th April 2015, 8:39 at 8:39 am #297061
Surely you all understand that he has created this situation from his own actions, more so words.
He is the Kanye of F1, he says what he thinks, which it seems from previous threads on this post some of may think reflects his intelligence. Most drivers in F1 have had a different up bringing from the average Joe and I’m not talking about education I’m referring to lifestyle. Lewis is a product of Mclaren and a hard working father, I don’t know his history but I’m sure his lifestyle now incorporates all things he missed out on doing as kid due to his commitment to sport. Maybe he’s still growing up, maybe he’s building his own music studio because he can, maybe he wears massive gold chains because he wants to be seen, who knows? I reckon if you asked him he’d say “because I want to man” and that’s fair enough. He lives a lifestyle that brings attention to himself because that’s we he likes.
People get jealous of wealth and confidence.
The problem for Lewis is, along with this confidence comes uneducated comments such as the one this week when he was asked about No.1 status at Mercedes. I say uneducated not because he doesn’t know the facts but because he was using words as weapons, trying to shift the focus from his contract negotiations. Poor choice of words, nobody likes a bitching F1 driver, especially when they target other drivers for no reason. Nico surely has lost some fans or attention lately with his carrying on “it’s not fair, he did this, he did that” and Vettel was mighty unpopular during his terms of dominance when he spoke out about what he deserved and did what he wanted. There’s a difference between cool and arrogance and it’s a fine line.
Sports personalities and professional of all variety often have managers or management teams to guide them through the processes that are not their area of expertise, Lewis has chosen not to have this sort of representation and while he is good at pumping up his brands, when it comes to personal issues all he seems to do is let down the tyres.
Lewis like all sporting greats should just let the results do the talking
Note: I don’t like Kanye, but I think Lewis is an awesome driver15th April 2015, 1:42 at 1:42 am #296746
It’s a shame such little things gather so much momentum, such is life in the modern world of social and digital media. Of course there are more eyes on this than usual due to the recent topic of grid girls. I am by no means endorsing what Hamilton did as correct nor am I saying it’s wrong, it’s something that happens in the moment. It’s something the lady/girl/employee on the podium was not prepared for but was surely aware that it could be a possibility. It’s something that has happened before in celebratory circles and it will happen again. It’s not sexism by any means either, all gender and all races have been exposed to this and should be allowed to embrace the moment rather than be attacked by negative on lookers.31st March 2015, 10:59 at 10:59 am #295595
@thecollaroyboys If you haven’t had the chance of car watching the Foxtel broadcast you’ll be glad you signed up. No Ads (Ten, One had more ads that broadcasting) FP1, FP2 and FP3 all live, with pre and post analysis. Pre race show, generally 1 hr plus, Martins gridwalk, entire race no ads, no dribble and the post race show to follow where you get to see all the good bits, media , pits and wrap up that Ten One denied us for years. Yes it sucks having to pay, but if you like motorsports in genral (MotoGp, WEC, V8’s, Tourers, Nascar, Supercross and more) I think you’ll be a happy camper.8th November 2014, 12:09 at 12:09 pm #284408
Alonso to Lotus is still very possible. There was rumors not so long ago of him buying into the team and when he said “No” to being in a Mercedes powered car, Lotus hadn’t revealed their power plant change for next year. He has stated he has been working on this decision for a while and that to me says more than going to Mclaren. The only way a Mclaren deal could/would string out for so long is that if was on Alonso’s terms such things as his own team of engineers etc… I don’t see Ron standing for that. Then again it could all revolve around Honda which has been hinted prior. The waiting game continues3rd August 2014, 10:04 at 10:04 am #269402
@magnificent-geoffrey Yes you read right that right! Your interpretation of it is just different to mine. Alcohol has nothing to do with it. I never knew the reasons why the logo’s were missing, thanks for clearing that up, but it’s not acceptable. F1 broadcasting does not have a age restriction on it, although I do understand this is a point of contention with the addition of the 2 new sponsors this year, these are cars branded with these logo’s, that’s the way they are presented, that’s the way they are sold. The influence this has on kids is another argument anyhow.
The graphics play a big part of these games, it they are not going to duplicate the livery of the car, why not make it black (FI) or white (Willaims)? Because nobody would buy the game to drive black n white cars that’s why. Also I don’t see any other real selling points over last years game. Hope that clears it up :)3rd August 2014, 9:19 at 9:19 am #269399
@craig-o I don’t understand it either, rather disappointing imo as it’s a huge part of Williams and Force India livery this yr… If the game is released with these graphics missing I will not buy it on principal.29th July 2014, 8:39 at 8:39 am #268613
Ricciardo on Hamilton23rd June 2014, 13:49 at 1:49 pm #264259
Ricciardo on Hulk, around the outside again, showing his talent25th May 2014, 10:47 at 10:47 am #261526
Zonta, he definitely hit harder
Keke or Nico?16th May 2014, 11:13 at 11:13 am #260537
Rubens! He has always been No.2
Active suspension or Traction control?13th May 2014, 11:56 at 11:56 am #260208
New Jersey! Was really looking forward to seeing the backdrop of that one :(
Eddie Jordan or Peter Sauber9th May 2014, 13:12 at 1:12 pm #259320
Sorry @kingshark missed that, I think Austria was overcome by the way Schumacher handled it, Singapore was disgraceful by the way Piquet, by his accounts was blackmailed into it and the proven plan behind it. Singapore wins
Same question Adelaide or Melbourne9th May 2014, 13:06 at 1:06 pm #259316
Adelaide or Melbourne?
