@1256 quack...every person on earth has black ancestry.
MDW. 1239. Overtly? I assume you are agreeing with me, if you read my posts that is the only point I have raised. I hope you read my last comment in1240 as our posts crossed, I'm interested in your opinion of that statement as he is known throughout F1 by that name. It can't be ok for one and not the other.
@ 1250. kevoakLH won the 2018 WDC, & thereby secured his 5th WDC title.LH has been the most consistent top 6 driver this season, he has not finished lower than 5th [except 1 DNF]. Merecedes have made some poor strategy calls.SV & Ferrari have under achieved this year, by their own admission; but that's not LH's fault.LH applied the preesure, they [SV & Ferrari] couldn't cope.
I am appalled at the total lack of coverage for Max Verstappen's ownership of the Mexican GP. Two years in a row, and neither year did BBC Sports deign to give an article about his win. I understand the coverage for Hamilton, but to COMPLETELY IGNORE Verstappen is just plain rude, and not what I expect from BBC.
@ 1244. stokermanLH was gifted the win in Sochi (Team Orders); however, that meant he secured his 5th WDC, & Mercedes now have 1 hand on this years double WDC & WCC.LH's other points he grafted for, & was just more consistent in scoring top 5 finishes.SV by his own admission has had a very inconsistent season, 3 spins to the back of the grid, DNF & team strategy errors.Don't blame LH.
The journalist/news reader, George Alagiah did an interesting documentary series on North America not too long ago, where he states, two thirds of the population of White North Americans have Black ancestry. In Britain, it's well known many White people in the South West have African ancestry, and other port locations where slaves past through.
This comment was removed because it broke the house rules. Explain
1184 @MinardiCosworth"Well 33 and mixed-race not black, but yes he's British though you're right."Technically, there's no such thing as 'mixed race,' it's a made up political term. There is only one human race. There are many more 'White' people who are decendents of Africans than culture wants people to know, but it is all hushed up. In this small world we should get past someone's skin
Got to give Lewis the respect he deserves. IMO he won that title through grit and skill and for large parts of the season with the slower car. Even if you were of the opinion that Ferrari handed it to him, he was the one there to take advantage, not VB, not MV nor DR.You might not like his A list mates and gangsta attitude, but hey F1 would be less interesting without him! Bravo Lewis!
Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton! Hugely deserved this year - he won crucially when Ferrari were expected to have the edge and reaped the rewards. Sadly his overall victory tended to eclipse MV's success this weekend, plus SV's strong drive (he needed those overtakes!). We always hope next season will be good - but with the three of them on form in competitive cars, maybe it really it will be...
Hype about Lewis aiming for Schumacher's title of 7 championships. What everyone seems to be missing with L Hamilton's wins and 5th title is he has got there in true sports man style, not Schumacher's aggressive shunting other drivers off the race track regardless of the consequences. If L. Hamilton achieves the 7th and maybe 8th title he will prove that he is the better racing driver.
