Would love to see the levels of hysterical condemnation if you substituted Vettel's name for Hamilton on Lewis' race.

Took pole position car, flubbed start, clattered it over the curbs on the second corner and damaged the underside, fell off lapping back marker, pulled forward in gravel and drove into outside wall wrecking front wing, went a lap down, given lap back under safety car, and took car to second setting fastest lap of race.

Vettel, Germany 2018, just short on sheer dumb luck.

No arguing that one. Would Ferrari have helped both themselves and their driver if they had adopted Toto's more grown up approach, "---- happens", support your driver and just move on?

Quite remarkable to see how Hamilton is granted a free pass by by the press, journalists and all concerned though, for arguably screwing up much worse.

Could this be the beginning of a massive slide into oblivion for Hamilton? I doubt it.

And this is the crux of the matter.

I really like Vettel. He’s a decent guy. Obviously you have to put things like this as this is the internet. I so want him to do well in the Aston.

But there is a simple reason why Lewis wasn’t talked about like Vettel is when a mistake happened. Recently these mistakes are rarer for Hamilton and recently Hamilton has been winning loads of championships. So of course the reaction is different. Nothing more.

Oh and if we compare to that off into the barrier at Hockenheim. Hamilton, and you can say luckily if you like, managed to get back out and secure second.

I think the key difference here is:

'took car to second setting fastest lap of race' vs 'locked the rear brakes and went straight on into the barriers, taking himself out of the race'

Luck, talent or whatever - the records will always show Hamilton scoring 19pts and Vettel picking up a DNF from his own accident.
