Lewis Hamilton - Why so many haters?
As the title says, Im interested to know why so many of you guys have such a hatred for Lewis Hamilton?
I am a fan of Lewis...(im not a fanboy, im not a fanboy in relation to anything to be honest).
At a time when my interest in F1 was dwindling, and I found it a bit boring 2004-2006, I was delighted to hear F1 was about to get its first black driver ever! and furthermore the GP2 champion (I'd been following GP2 during the 06 season and he was exciting as hell).
Fast forward to his rookie in F1 and my mind was blown at how he matched Alonso throughout...I dont think many would have in that position.
Now I look back today and see a driver who isnt the stereotypical F1 driver, yes he wears gold chains to press conferences, and enjoys a snapchat or two... attends fashion shows and has alot of celebrity friends.... but I dont get the smug/arrogant claims!
Why should an F1 driver be concealed in a box of how to present themselves?
Do any of you know the guy personally in order to harbour such hate?
I personally dont dislike any f1 drivers, I dont know them personally....but the hate I see on social media and in these forums is unreal, so any explanations would be welcome!
