Seems like you are just reading what you want to read (IE Hamilton saying something nasty). It seems they specifically asked him if he would be racing at 43 like Schumacher and he makes the point that he wouldnt stay in F1 just because he can or is enjoying it and that perhaps there were younger talents who couldnt get into F1 as people were hanging onto seats.Schuttelberg wrote:Read an interview from Lewis where he suggested that Michael was probably hogging a F1 seat while driving for Mercedes. Left a foul taste in my mouth. Really poor form, specially given the medical condition of Michael.
And then trying to link that comment to Michaels current condition is just clutching at straws to try and make Hamilton the bad guy. Pretty low.
I have had the pleasure of being around Michael, he is a genuinly great bloke and his current situation saddens me but his tenure at Merc was at best not very good and there is nothing wrong with saying that.
