Lewis Hamilton has been at it again with the whining. This time he is “fuming” over the fact that Fernando Alonso had the audacity to try and have a motor race with him. In the middle of a Grand Prix as well! Whatever will happen next!
It is true that Hamilton was forced onto the run-off area by Alonso’s aggressive move. But you see such a thing happen probably about a dozen times a year. It is just part of motor racing. Indeed, Hamilton himself came very close to doing the same thing to Felipe Massa at Monza last week.
It was an immensely exciting start. The possibility of fireworks between Alonso and Hamilton is real and mouthwatering. We almost got that at Spa with the battle at the first corner. What’s more, Hamilton got a good run out of La Source and ended up going side-by-side with Alonso into the entry to the intimidating Eau Rouge corner.
This is what motor racing is about. If Hamilton doesn’t like it, he ought to go fishing instead.
