I was struck today by the article of Ben Dirs of BBC Sport written shortly after Hamilton secured the 2015 world title. Using this graphic he sought to place hamilton in a league of World Champions based solely on the number of titles won;
Never a wise move !
Worse still he goes on to suggest that there is a view that “F1 is a sport for people who don’t really like sport – in other words, “car people”, people more turned on by engineering than other human beings”.
In my view this couldn’t be further from the truth. As an F1 fan a large part of the enjoyment of F1 is knowing all of the characters involved, the politics and and the rivalries (teams and drivers).
The whole package is actually more of a soap opera enjoyed by many who would actually proclaim they don’t like or watch soap opera’s.
Just a thought by “Matthew Roddan”
