Shame on you Lewis, you are getting penalized for breaking rules, not being black. The penalty for cutting the chicane in qualifying was legitimate, and the penalty for ramming Massa was legitimate. Another driver was penalized just minutes earlier for doing the same thing in the same corner and he wasnt black.

I havn't had time to watch the race yet so thats gonna be interesting. Managed to catch quallie and massa did hold lewis up but in Massa's defence he had nowhere to go to let lewis past.

By the way Pov congrats on your 5000 post

Lewis Hamilton is an idiot! That interview had me in stitches i can't remember the last time i heard a driver so upset. He definitely wasn't thinking about what he said. CLASSIC

Usually what you say when you are in an emotional rage is how you REALLY feel/think, and 95% of what you say, even joking is also how you truly feel.



The rest of the time you are just hiding it to be PC.



What has been said cannot be unsaid, careful with your words.



This is a major reason I like Rosberg. He just quietly gets on with the job and doesn't involve himself in the wrong circumstances.

I'm not convinced he really was joking, but will give him the benefit of the doubt. Either way it doesn't make the comment any less stupid and inappropriate, great for the media and the fans but terrible for himself and the sport.

So it only took him 4 years to pull it in F1, he used to pull it in the junior categories all the time...

I'm sure it was on his mind, but i'm sure he knows it is irrational of him to think so. I'm sure if someone asked an expert why Hamilton keeps driving into people and they suggesting it was because he is black it would be more of an issue.
