Lewis is a saint

Motor Sport News - - Interview: Chris Haird -

I am amazed at the let­ters in the re­cent weeks in MN at­tack­ing Lewis Hamil­ton’s con­duct dur­ing the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

I can see noth­ing wrong with the way he tried to back Ros­berg into the fol­low­ing pack as this was the only chance he had to be­come 2016 World cham­pion.

In fact, it made the fi­nal laps of the race more ex­cit­ing than it would other­wise have been. Hamil­ton’s car un­re­li­a­bil­ity and some poor starts lost him the cham­pi­onship so this was the only op­tion left.

I feel that Mercedes had no need to in­struct Hamil­ton to speed up as he ob­vi­ously had it well un­der con­trol in keeping other driv­ers be­hind. Ian Dodd Via email
