I never gave you my opinion on Hamilton, I was merely pointing out something in your piece I had an issue with namely drivers in dominant cars.
I think the irony of this is that Hamilton is using his position of power and privilege to push the agenda which is exactly what he claims the establishment do and what leads to what he perceives as the problem.
Nobody has put to him the hypocrisy of his position in respect of Mercedes and Hugo Boss. Why?
Because they know that in order to do their job they need access to him, access he will deny them if they have the temerity to question him.
A brave driver, such as Stewart just did. A dyslexic who campaigned for and achieved real change in the sport, which today's drivers, Hamilton included, owe a huge debt of gratitude to, not dismissed as an uneducated rant from an "older generation" .
Hamilton, as the rest of the drivers, had no interest in organising rallies before every race until an incident in the USA. Now when other drivers want to focus on their racing and work on their cars with their engineers on the grid, he drags them all off for political rallies demanding unity, while wearing a shirt with a different message on it to the rest of them. It's not enough for them to simply show their support for the cause anymore, they either all follow the ring leader or have to answer questions.
He says he has a platform and he's determined to use it. The reality is that most women and men with his background, want to do other things for a living than drive sports cars, spending most of the year far away from their loved ones, especially at his age. That's not racism, that is a personal choice. These rallies may grab the attention he's looking for, but if it's change he wants, he's set to be disappointed. Next year's driver lineups are mostly set in stone, and it's basically more of the same. Mainly rearranging the deck chairs than rocking the system.
Now that he's first in the standings, he should canter to victory by half a lap or so in the next few races, at nice easy tracks where he's won multiple times, that suit him and his car down to the ground. Then everyone can marvel at how great he is. As he realises himself, some things never change.
