I really don’t like Lewis Hamilton. I get annoyed by his overdoing it, like the recent statement - "They do everything to stop me" or long ago - "They don't let me win because I'm black". I also like his political correctness and PR licking of the type - "This is the best audience" and the like. What bothers me the most is that the character drives probably the most dominant car in F1 history and easily beats his current teammate, and tries to portray himself as struggling for every win, dying in the fight against Pirelli tires, wind and elements. Not to mention "star" status and activism. Now that mulatto has achieved 92 victories and is unstoppably treading towards the 7th title of champion, making him the most successful driver of all time. Well, let it be the title of the most statistically successful driver, but you will never be the greatest, NEVER!
The only thing left for me as a grain of comfort is that he broke the record of Michael Schumacher, whom I also didn’t like. Today, however, I no longer have the animosity I felt towards cheering for Senna, Hill, Villeneuve, Hakkinen, Raikkonen and Alons. I started to think: okay, if I’ve accepted Michael as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, so far, why am I fighting Lewis? And Michael drove the dominant car. Fangi was said to have no competition. Prost, Vettel, Senna and other multiple champions haven’t won or won podiums at Williams, Torro Rosso or some Toleman there (oops, you know what I mean).
And then I read a column by colleague Wapi in which he writes about backstage games and favoring Lewis throughout his career. With everything written in the koumni I would be inclined to agree that the author did not declare himself a Ferrari fan. Ferrari is the biggest Formula 1 team and you know already, I don’t like it. Favoring Lewis, not to mention bonus payouts, vetoes and who knows what else behind the scenes? Well, let's go in order. I don’t like Ferrari, but I accept that Ferrari is the biggest F1 team. They have the most success, the best drivers drive for them, they have charisma and the largest number of fans. And even Lightning Jurić is red.
I didn’t like Michael Schumacher, but over time the animosity disappeared. I have no problem with it being considered by most to be the greatest of all time, although my personal favorites are Clark or Fangio, just for the record.
Let’s try to write something good about Lewis. Primarily, he is an extremely talented driver. For the 14th year in a row, he has been competing in F1, at the top of the standings, which cannot be a coincidence. He was lucky to find himself in the right place at the right time in his career, but luck should also be earned. Compare his career with the recently completed careers of solid drivers (Webber, Massa, etc.). Yes, Lewis is there because of the marketing value it brings to Mercedes in the British market, but the same goes for Kimi, Sebastian and Alonso. Conclusion, Lewis is a very good driver.
Okay, very good driver, but what kind of person is he? I actually have no idea what kind of person Lewis is. What we see is a PR display served to us by corporations, we know the brand Lewis Hamilton which we may love or not. The only thing I know about Lewis is that he is extremely competitive. How do I know that? From his experience of playing sports. Okay, I wasn’t some athlete, but I played in another league. One of the first things my more experienced colleagues on the first team taught me was - everything to win. Score a goal with your hand and rejoice, if it passes, Maradona has passed. It is not fair, collegial, gentlemanly, but if it is done in another Croatian league, then what are they doing in F1? So Lewis ’statements viewed through that prism do not give a true picture of him as a person.
Finally the dominance of Lewis and Mercedes bored everyone except their staunch fans. I don't have a good argument to prove otherwise. However, I am currently interested in two things. First - because the Mercedes / Lewis combination has no competition much more attention is drawn to the phenomenal fights in the middle of the standings. And second, when will Lewis get bored? Will he settle for 7-8 titles, 101 wins or will he still drive? So I stopped worrying and will follow the continuation of Lewis ’career with interest.
