he simply doesnt have the personality to get himself front and centre and get the public to like him.
I struggle to grasp this. People hero worship Kimi, yet he has as much personality as the terminator.
Both Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell were hero worshipped, yet neither of them are exactly colourful.
Hamilton refuses to fit the stereotype of a modern F1 driver, he has outside interests and does his own thing, rather than being a corporate robot.
Is Roger Federer acknowledged for his wit and humour? Or is he just admired because of his greatness.
I hate to play the Lammy card, but there is undoubtably an element of society that holds his colour against him, even if subconsciously.
In my eyes he is greater than Schumacher. Doesn't demand No1 status, he team mate is free to race, ever seen Hamilton cheat?
Most the first races were poor, up to and including France. Since then it's been a good season. Ferrari and Red Bull have been in the mix, the top 3 teams have been closer together.
Hamilton and Marquez are both geniuses of motor sport. Their dominance shouldn't deflect from their brilliance.
