    Precisely. And you can't see thru the bullshit and recognize he's just another media manipulator. His behavior is wholly unsophisticated, but your thinking certainly shouldn't be.

    JB and DB wouldn't miss the London Live event. Brundle and Herbert were there, It's pretty self explanatory. They would never shit on their public image like Hamilton does. They may or may not have contempt for their "adoring fans" but they are classy enough not to show it.

    If you are an adoring fan, you should question your premises. These are a bunch of highly self centered people, and being a fan has little meaning other than this amorphous "being loved" jargon they suck up. Hamilton has contempt for British fans, but sits there crowd surfing like he's a savior.

    Fans are almost always idiots. They will crowd surf anyone that was born in their borders while completely blind to the beliefs of guy they're adoring.

    We should let it go. It's clear I won't change your mind, and you're not really persuading me that I should dislike him. :)

    Like Texas pointed out, looks like Ferrari haven't been able to develop the car as well as Mercedes and the gap has been widening for the last several races. Maybe instead of Champtionship battle between Hamilton vs Vettel, it will actually be Hamilton vs Bottas, especially since it's starting to look like Bottas is as good or better than Rosberg.

    Let's see if the Finns at Hungary can help get Bottas ahead of Hamilton. Should make things really interesting.

    That's no fun.

    Admittedly, it's odd that I detested Alonso and loved Hamilton way back, and now Alonso turns out to be the genuine one, while Hamilton descends ever deeper into bitchdom.

    I hope Alonso does Indy again next year.

    Alonso doesn't really have much else to do that weekend. McLaren has no chance of winning for awhile.

    Just realized that Bottas is Hamilton's third Finnish teammate. (I know Rosberg is officially German, but I think Keke parentage counts.) I wonder if anyone else has had as many Finnish teammates in F1. I guess I could look on Forix, but that would be work...
