I always got this feeling that a lot of the hate towards Lewis Hamilton borderlined on internalised racism by him just being black and successful and other drivers white faves losing out because he happens to be a better driver (like a lot of nico fans) but I never said anything. Today after seeing the reaction to Vettel PURPOSEFULLY driving into his car to cause him damage/harm, I can’t stay quiet anymore. Yes Lewis braked and we might not know why he did it, but it was nowhere near as bad as what Vettel did. That could have been fatal, yet all these Vettel stans are cursing on LEWIS acting like HE was the one who almost caused someone a serious accident on purpose?! He doesn’t deserve to be in that race anymore. Vettel in not some young guy or inexperienced driver. He is a professional who has won so much and has experience in these situations and has seen how bad these things can be. You don’t have to like Lewis. Just stop defending Vettel and unnecessarily hating on Lewis for every small thing because of your internalised racism.
i just hate how everything gets so tense on here about everything. in one corner there's harries automatically go on the defensive, and in the other there's ot4 stans making a bunch of posts nitpicking at quotes and trying to make someone the bad guy. and then louis' article gets pushed aside and all of the other very lovely things he said are ignored for some inflammatory bullshit that doesn't even matter.
