What is this guy smoking?! He’s really walked this sport alone with no support or backing! Never mind that he was picked up by Big Ron as a youngster the support of top teams. There is no arguing his talent just a shame his personality doesn’t match the polished talent. The verbal diarrhoea this bloke comes out with just gets worse!
When he first came on the scene in 2007, when I saw his face the first time, the word ‘black’ didn’t even pop up in my mind.
That’s because F1 has had drivers from about 45 different nationalities, all shapes and sizes, and frankly, no true F1 fan gives a SH*t what ethnicity a driver is, as long as he shows up to drive that car on the limit of control, not make any mistakes, and possibly, win, ideally during a final lap nail-biter along with clever pit-stops.
That’s the beauty of F1… you can be bright purple or orange with blue dots, once those lights go out, we judge the color of the driving.
Now that he’s drawn all this attention from the world to the color of his skin, I have to say yes, I now see Lewis as a great black F1 driver, where as before I saw him as a great F1 driver, and I feel he’s made me label him as a black driver, where I never wanted to involve skin color or ethnicity in a sport I love.
