I wonder if Lewis even realises Mercedes and Hugo Boss past Nazi involvement, has he ever called it out? A bit ironic he spreads these messages while working for and promoting such companies.

I guess it's easily forgotten when they pay you tens of millions though, right?

Yeah before quickly deleting it.

I’m sure Ferrari, given all their issues this year, are scampering around to find a POC mechanic in the middle of a pandemic to satisfy Hamilton’s skin colour demands. If they aren’t, well, I know a racist organisation when I see one.
You know that huge black Italian population is not represented!! /s

What I personally find amusing about it is Hamilton's limited view of "diversity".
He can look at a picture and see no black people in it. OK, that may be true, but does it make the picture, and the team, "not diverse"?

We don't know, form a picture, if any of them are gay. We don't know if any of them are disabled. We don't know their family heritage, if, for example, they have any African / Middle Eastern heritage. Not uncommon in Southern Italy. We don't know their political views, maybe some lean left, maybe some lean right. Diversity of thought, I would say, is much more important that someone's skin colour.

Diversity isn't only about skin colour. But it's becoming more and more apparent that Hamilton only cares about black people, more specifically, black Americans. He is not American. He doesn't give two stuffs about the U.K., regardless of his little fly in, snap a pic for Instagram, fly out stunt he did in London's BLM protest.

The guy is an absolute fraud and a hypocrite. He will never boycott a race in China in protest of their treatment of the Uyghurs because he has never given them two thoughts. He is a selfish moron who only cares about himself and very limited section of global society because it benefits him on an egotistical level. His constant calling out of anyone who doesn't think and behave like him is fucking disgusting given how uninformed and ridiculous his views are. This is not his sport and he shouldn't be allowed to use it as a platform to promote his ignorant views. He should run for office and make a difference there instead of dragging the sport through the mud.

I hope the FIA make an example out of him for his Mugello stunt, but I very much doubt they will.

I'm so tired of talking about him but he just keeps going further and further making it hard to talk about anything else.
The sooner he fucks off, the better. I have absolutely no respect for him whatsoever and he is tarnishing his legacy forever with this behaviour.
Sadly, however, it seems many F1 fans don't feel the same and are absolutely lapping up this utter bollocks.
Bernie selling F1 was a travesty, I'd give anything to have him back right now :messenger_grinning_sweat:

It's not only Hugo Boss, Petronas is a government owned Malaysian company and it's not a secret how many human rights are being violated there. He's doing a lot for show, but outside of the spotlight receives big paychecks from these companies.

I was a fan of Ham from his debut - didn't like Alonso and wanted for a new guy to kick his ass. And who would've known he will break all records in the sport.

But now he went full retard. It's time to check your privilege, dude.

Fear not Lewis, the big dicked german you see in the picture will soon be replaced by minority hire Carlos Sainz. Then you can relax even more because you'll face even less competition.

Give Max a car that's like 60% as good as the Mercedes.

I fell off this season with Ferrari being shit and Redbull being a one car team that still isn’t close to Mercedes. Fuck Bottas too.
The current season is about enjoying the midfield battle. I think that Racing Point, McLaren and Renault have similar chances of ending up third in the standings.

Now that Claire Williams is no longer boss of Williams, I wonder if there's a chance George Russell can get out of his contract and into Mercedes next year. Interviews with George at the time suggest it was Claire that wasn't prepared to let him go.
