Hunt was a hero
I watched Sky Sports F1’s piece marking the 40th anniversary of James Hunt’s World Championship. How times have changed; when asked how he felt about being stripped of his British Grand Prix win, live on camera, Hunt replied: “That’s the way it is, I’ve just got to knuckle down and get on with it.”
At around the same time I heard that Lewis Hamilton feels disrespected by his team, and that he is pleading with Mercedes not to switch engineers between himself and whoever his team-mate is.
It would be fascinating to know Hunt’s opinion of his fellow Brit; probably something along the lines of: “Pull yourself together, grow up and get on with it!” John Russell
