Hunt was a hero

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

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
