Especially when people compare him to Tiger Woods.
he's an F1 driver? Lolz.
Young black sportsmen and all that...
Well he's certainly made an impact in his sport.
Well, you learn something new everyday.
(Not that there's... and it's probably wrong to assume... and I'm definitely not... etc.)
fuck it all up, but he hasnt! scary stuff
and the ITV production team are doing my head in now. They'd do Hamilton a massive favour by just shutting up about him.
It's slightly awkward knowing that in say, five races time if he hasn't won, there's going to be a backlash. The ITV team have been stupid about the whole thing.
He went to my school. Apparently he turned up two days a week and was shit at everything.
I could easily live with being shit at everything on a 500k p/a wage.
he may well get a little more than that.
<potentially untrue story I was told>
I know someone who grew up with him, and she told me that about 3 days after his GP debut The Sun showed up on her doorstep and offered her a huge sum to "dish the dirt" on him. She turned them away 1) because he is a friend and 2) there genuinely isn't any dirt on him, apparently.
the reason he'll have been shit at school is the same reason he's famous with no dirt: he'll have been taught racing all his life and taught how to avoid 'dirt'.
