I find it embarrassing and can not watch him, why does he not just become a pop star and have done with it. Vettel for all his outbursts is still a normal human being, and acts with dignity in his public persona.

Sorry to offend his fans but I am just too old to be able to stomach his clownish ways.
Thought this was driver of the race, not who we think looks the best. Lewis can't win. If he didn't give back to his fans, you'd criticise him for that too

Can I politely suggest that you chaps consult your dictionaries and check out the meaning of 'sublime'?

There can be no higher praise for Hamilton's driving than that, the fact that I find his off track behaviour pathetic is very much a personal thing.

For me he demeans both himself and Formula 1, not a view shared by many here or in the wider world, so why not let poor old Bauble sit alone and nurse his biased and bigoted opinions?

Let's face it for those who do not agree with me, I feel only sorrow.

Ace you laughed when Vettel punctured!
That demonstrates your insecurity, as Seb is a serious threat to your hero driving unchallenged to another F1 World Championship title.

Someone dares to beat the 'Holy One'?

Call out the riot squad, arrest that man, spare nothing in your efforts to bring him to justice - Lewis must be allowed to serenely cruise to a fourth title ............

........ no matter how hollow the crown.



Oh! By the way I have come up with a new motto for Lewis;

'Win or Whinge'


Kindest possible regards to all those who do not take umbrage. (bring out the dictionary again)

Sorry Baub, but I honestly think this applies more to your apparent hero VET
rather than HAM, but maybe that's because we're both allowing our personal biases to could our opinions?

Viv, I tend to support Ferrarti rather than any individual driver, therefore Vettel fills the role at the moment as my choice for victory. I have no strong feelings about any other driver then Hamilton.

F1Guy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I am a F1 fan, and a Lewis Hamilton fan (as well as a few other drivers on the grid). But.. while I am a Lewis Hamilton "fan", I could not give a flying **** what he does outside of the car!!

I'm a fan of his driving skills and raw talent, and what he does when he is in a F1 car - on a F1 track.

Nothing he does in his private life, who he is hangin' with, his hair, his sunglasses, or the clothes he wears, etc., matter to me. But I do understand that it does matter to some people. Normally, they are female. But I do also understand that these things matter to some sections of the male community. And that's ok, there's nothing wrong with being that way inclined. There's also nothing wrong a male publicly commenting on another males appearance. It's all normal these days.

I can sympathise with your view, although for me part of the 'race' is the build up and immediate aftermath, what happens away from the circuit is of little interest.

I wouldn't consider myself a "fan" of any kind I just love racing. I was thinking to myself during the race, there are very few other sports where Brits choose such a wide range of nationalities as their favourite driver. Unfortunately Mansell in his time and Hamilton today can bring out the worst kind of nationalism.

I haven't been a "fan" since I was a kid, a true devotee of Ronnie P. Since then I've appreciated drivers of all teams and abilities.

Back on topic I think my driver of the race is Bottas. It was a good chase, and whilst those punctures delivered the result into his lap quite easily he had.to be in the right place to profit. It's easy to back pedal when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, but he kept up the pressure.

Whilst I'd like to see a British World Champion I'd much prefer a hard-fought battle where he just misses out to a stroll in the park with it all done and dusted in Hungary.

So, would you prefer a grumpy pants like KR?

I'm not a fan of LH antics, I don;t revel in it, but I don;t find it out of order. As said above, he is his own person. If he wants to play around, let him. Not much different in attitude in many ways to James Hunt for example, although he was heavy drinking womaniser, so they exhibit in different ways.

If you don't like it, just watch his driving, which I hope you don't have an issue with, because it was clearly in a different league to the other drivers.

I'm in my 50's btw, being older doesn't necessarily mean you have to become intolerant.

I'm with Bauble on this

Hamilton is an excellent driver - but out of the car 'Snoop Hammy Hamm' is just embarrassing. The main reason being it's all so contrived - none of it looks spontaneous - it all looks to be part of 'the act' (brand?). No soul.
