As most Formula 1 fans are probably aware of what happened after the Melbourne race this matter will (hopefully) be resolved and taken off the table and F1 can continue as normal again (if there is such a thing).
Lewis made a mistake. This is now a fact as admitted by Lewis in the video below. Unfortunately this is being used (and abused) by the media calling Lewis a “liar” publicly on front pages (even before Lewis admitted this and laid out the facts). This is simply not acceptable and is outrageous. Especially for a relatively minor incident Lewis is being portrayed to be a nasty person who lies often.
This is simply not the case. Anybody can see this if they’re watching.
All this negative press is not good for Hamilton’s image, especially for all the young and aspiring racing drivers and fans. It seems the media is being overly harsh against Lewis and frankly – the punishment does not fit the crime, it exceeds it by miles!
The whole situation simply does not seem fair on Lewis. I don’t know of a single Formula 1 driver who hasn’t made a mistake before, but I know fewer how are man enough to admit it.
Regarding Jarno Trulli: I can understand that he was upset as he temporarily lost his third place – as anybody racer would be.
Ok, enough of the chatter, let see and listen to the man himself has to say…
