heikki Kovalainen is a very likeable fellow. Does anyone care? He hasn't done anything in the same
Lewis's father devoted his life to his son and his ultimate dream - to race in Formula 1. Now that Lewis has made it,naturally, his father would be arrogantly proud of his son's achievements. He was also there for him through it all and never stopped believing in his son's natural talent and driving abilities. And now people have a problem with his father's arrogant face in the pits
Lewis,obviously, has a huge belief in his abilities and is not afraid to speak about it. That belief,probably, got him through some tough times in his life. But now it's causing problems for him and according to some people he needs to keep that belief to himself like a dirty little secret. Never mind the fact that,in f1, if you start questioning your abilities, you would immediately be diagnosed with a severe case of "cracking under the pressure" (e.g :Alonso was clearly rattled with Lewis's arrival and he definitely lost some confidence in his abilities - the latter, always dangerous in F1)
And people also say that he isn't patriotic for moving out of england. They have never said anything about Rossi who was under investigation for tax evasion/fraud in his beloved italy ( the evasion : undeclared 60 million euros).
Valentino Rossi was handed a £14million broadband bill yesterday after he reached an agreement with the Italian tax authorities only weeks before the start of the new MotoGP season.
The seven-times world champion had been living in London and claiming “British resident non-domiciled” status, but the Italian tax agency smelt a rat when Rossi asked for an internet connection to be installed in his hometown of Tavullia, in the Italian region of Marche. The paper trail led to the local marina where Rossi's 46ft yacht was moored. Eight cars were also found with insurance registered to Rossi or his companies.
No one has attacked him,called him a cheat, or questioned his patriotism for not paying huge amounts of tax when Italy's economy is in bad shape. What about our patriotic tennis players? They all live in Monte Carlo Monaco or similar....
F1 is a tough(and more often then not) a cruel sport. Lewis is completely equipped to handle it. If you want a humble guy,then back heikki.
