Re: Lewis Hamilton,Backlash, Sport's Personality ?
Opinion will be 50/50 on this - we have a lot of British support but also Italian sympathisers. I'm all behind Lewis, yes he has been looked after by uncle Ron, but only because he deserved it. Time and time again the Ferrari proved it was the fastest car in '08 but some team **** ups, lacklustre performances from both drivers in the middle of the season and Kimi at the end, cost them the title. Lewis showed how good he was by consistently outpacing his teammate, the only measure that really counts, and keeping his head when it mattered unlike last season. A deserving winner. Sports personality? I don't follow other sports well enough to judge but sure Lewis has reached the most people worldwide.
