Lewis Hamilton and Tony Stewart ‘Seat Swap’

Montreal Madness – The Longest F1 Race in History.

First practice woes.

The weekend started ominously for Sebastian Vettel in the RB7. The wall of Champions claimed it’s latest victim early on in the weekend. Despite what many thought this was not the start of a bad weekend for Seb, although it didn’t end quite as well as he may have hoped.

All three practice sessions were eventful with plenty of action being caused by the upright stuff just off the racing line, however the pacesetters were again the Red Bulls, particularly of Seb, and the Mclarens and Ferraris were there or thereabouts. Particular praise I think should be given to De La Rosa after subbing for the still ‘unwell’ Perez. After dusting off his 2010 seat from the skip out the back of the Paddock, and a bit of a bodge job on his earpieces to suit the Sauber radio set up he did a fine job, although he did have a little ‘wall’ action himself in FP3.

Petulant Child Overshadows Monte Carlo Classic

Hamilton seconds before spewing his 'Mind Vomit'

I’m compelled to have a bit of a moan!

One of the great gladiatorial heroes, a warrior of modern times, has – well embarrassed himself, his team, and brought our beautiful sport into disrepute.

Of course I am talking about the increasingly cringeworthy Lewis Hamilton, don’t get me wrong I believe Lewis is truly one of the greats behind the wheel on his day, however the constant blame game and overbearing arrogance have now been joined by the ‘race card’.

Yup, he pulled it out and shoved it straight into the face of the BBC’s lovely Lee McKenzie. However it wasn’t just her, as over her shoulder there was a camera with a worldwide audience of millions watching. The unrelenting tirade of, ‘poor me’ and ‘it’s everyones else’s fault’ was joined this time by the one card the boy Hamilton cannot afford to use if he wants to keep any respect and credibility he may have managed to hold onto since his championship year.

Unfortunately a classic weekend of F1 that had everything you could hope for from a weekend in the principality will now be remembered for an unnecessary and frankly childish rant about the FIA, the race stewards and his fellow drivers. A shame, but unfortunately now not completely unexpected from the boy in the silver car, thankfully the man in the silver car on the other side of the garage handled himself and his race weekend impeccably yet again. Now that’s a world champion.

Unfortunately Lewis you were WAY too late on the brakes this time.
