No

I went right off Hamilton when he referred to back markers as something like "those monkeys who get in the way" half way through the first season. Modesty in victory is so much more appealing.

Give the guy a break! I suppose the rest of the grid haven't made off hand comments at some time or other, either?

I must confess to being a McLaren fan for many years and can't help feel that someone high up has an agender and doesn't want them to do very well for whatever reson (keeps JK happy )

Ferrari always have enjoyed a form of favoritism, which will be pretty obvious if Jean Todd takes over from Max.

With regard yesterdays outcome, I have to say I'm surpised by the punisment and 25 second penalty, given the visual evidence. Another attempt to distract McLaren from next weekends GP in Monza no doubt.

I am no fan of Hamilton either - too arrogant for my tastes - but I AM a fan of fairplay - and Ferrari and FIA are taking the proverbial..........

To be honest I didn't watch the race ... it was a nice afternoon and I had too many things to do outside

I have never been a great fan of Ferrari either, for the reasons you said. The races I enjoy are the ones where all the dead certs crash out and somebody new gets to win their first race
