Anyone else fed up with SkySports one-sided viewpoint?
I personally feel that one of the amazing things about motorsport is that drivers are racing for themselves, and not their country, so regardless of your nationality, people support drivers from all over the world, and we make judgements based on their skill etc. The reason why I feel this is brilliant, is that when attending a motor race, there is no segregation based on who you support, and everyone is free to enjoy watching the skill of the drivers together.
I appreciate that in the UK a larger proportion of people will support Hamilton, in Germany a lot of people will support Vettel, in Australia many will support Ricciardo, but my experience of SkySports is that they are very supportive of Hamilton, and even more so, they are extremely critical of Vettel. Personally, I feel this is a bit over the top, especially given they broadcast to many countries around the world, not just the UK.This article
sums it up - Martin Brundle is extremely citical of Vettel, even though, regardless of who you support, I think it is hard to deny that his drive back through the field at Malaysia was very impressive, especially given he finished ahead of a Mercedes without any Safety Car intervention.
