Over the last few years Hamilton has been slated for doing his own thing between races and accused of not concentrating on the championship, the one time he decides to skip a promo event so he can focus on the coming race he gets slated. Ridiculous.
i think you miss the point.
All drivers were requested to attend. All drivers except one did attend. This event was a promotion for the British Grand Prix and Formula 1 as a whole in Lewis Hamiltons country of birth. Of course by winning the grand prix Lewis has managed to come out largely unscathed but the new followers generated, and especially the younger fans who were there in London will more likely be VER/RIC/VET/ALO fans than HAM.
The crowd at Silverstone were much more supportive of Lewis (not me, Kimi is my guy
) and rightly so, he represents Britains best chance of winning the race
I also should point out the british media is the most toxic bunch of scum and its getting worse. Not at all shocked he got panned over here and its disgusting the way the press use stories such as this to sell papers / get website clicks
I genuinely hope F1 Live is brought to more cities around the world, we had Mclaren running in Manchester the other year. To see Jenson Button blasting up and down Deansgate in F1 machinery was quite the sight
