Avto, your opinion is just as valid as anyone's, no matter how many posts or their personal history in racing. There's always the first day when a person becomes interested in racing and becomes a fan. We were all newbies at one time, and that's no reason to disrespect another person.
This is an English-speaking web site, and thus a lot of Lewis Hamilton fans find there way here. That's cool because Hamilton is a great talent, hopefully one I can enjoy watching for many years to come.
Sadly, there has to be an imbalance because other drivers are not so well-represented as Lewis Hamilton. I'm sure most Spanish-speaking fans follow Alonso, and Germans follow Schumacher or Vettel, etc. So please be aware of the large percentage of Lewis Hamilton fans. Almost all of them are great people, but some get a little aggressive at times......
But as we all now know, whenever anything controversial occurs, fans get emotional. And that's cool too, because in F1T, we keep the facts and emotions separate. If you want to talk about the technical aspects of a car, you won't find opinions or emotions in there. But in this forum topic, a lot of post-race emotions are expressed. That's OK by me, I believe in freedom of speech.
What I do have a problem with, is lack of respect towards drivers, teams, and fellow forum members.
Racing should be decided on the track, not the court room.
