Hamilton is unbelievably ignorant.

One more thing: This is what you said just a few hours ago when people complained about Vettel's voice over the teamradio:

"Wait, are you now complaining about his voice over a crappy radio? Some real petty things being thrown around now. "

Right back at ya, buddy.

Plus, this is what he said a few years ago:

"I don't think of myself as being Finnish but I don't really think of myself as being a German either. It is not like the Brazilians, who have this big patriotic thing. I don't have that and I guess in a way it's unfortunate."

And here's the article:

But yeah AMS, nice try. Ever wondered why so much BS is being published? It's coz of people like you falling for that sort of nonsense.

No, that is a plain insulting and ignorant comment thrown at his "friend". 

EDIT: Well, he did say it so it's not like I've fallen for some kind of lie. 

It isn't really that that bothers me, it is that Hamilton is very ignorant. Not being funny, but is Hamilton really British then?

Hamilton is more British than Rosberg is German...

FRIC could be gone from next race

This will be really interesting, it's believed the FRIC is one of the main reasons Mercedes dominates.

Doubt it. If they use FRIC as much as they did last year, it would most probably mess with the brake by wire too much to get any advantage of it.

I predict the teams will agree to keep the FRIC the way it is until the end of the season. However, if they do agree to ban it from Germany onwards, Mercedes will continue to dominate.

You heard it here first. ;)

It's already known that Mercedes run the most complicated FRIC and they're benefitting from it.

Yes but his grand parents (moved over in the 1950's) were not even British on his dads side, so he can't really talk about heritage like that. 

It really doesn't matter. My point is, he is hardly in a position to say things like that and he should learn to talk less.

Hamiltons comment didn't come across as ignorant to me. Rosberg is not 100% German. Born in Germany yes. When he was a kid he raced under a Finnish flag, he's lived in Monaco most of his life, and only started racing under a German flag because it was easier to get sponsorship.

So stop trying to pick apart everything he says, he's not wrong.

Αpparently Red Bull and Mercedes have the best FRIC systems so they will lose more, while McLaren (mostly) and Ferrari will gain due to having problems with setting FRIC up.
I guarantee you, if they ban it now, the situation at the front won't change. In fact, the gap might even become bigger. This whole FRIC-issue is overblown to bring some tension back in the championship, but it won't happen.

However, this is just what I believe. I don't say that this is a fact and how it's going to be.

Not more of a **** move than parking the car in Q3 I think.

It's not like Nico is going to lose the chance to grab pole because of all that.

And I doubt there will be less germans supporting him. Not that there will be many because let's face it: Rosberg is never ever going to be even close to as popular in Germany as Schumi or even Vettel.

How is that borderline racist when it is true? His grandparents are/were not British, that is a fact. Just the same as mentioning that Rosbergs dad is Finnish not German, how is that racist? 

I hate it when people get accused of being racist over things like this when it is true. I'm certainly not racist, I'm stating facts. 

It doesn't matter though, I'm just saying. The only reason I have an issue is because it is hypocritical and it is not nice to say when it is his home race next. He is half German by blood and half Finnish so yeah. He speaks fluent German and supports German things. 

But it doesn't matter. Really.
