    I ask because Charles gets into fashion (like Hamilton), plays music (like Hamilton), and also goes on social media (I'm told) just like Hamilton.

    Definitely not the same fashion. Lulu is punk rap fashion. And Charles has class. IMO It’s obvious.

    Chuck also has a woman currently whom both seem monogamous.....unlike Hamilton.


    Lewis's "fashion" is the "flavor-of-the-month."

    Charles fashion is classic and timeless and is sponsored by a fashion icon....unlike Hamilton.

    Hamilton wants to be a rapper.....again, that fad has come and gone.

    Charles play the piano....which takes skill and some notion of how to read music.

    Lewis is pushing his so called "diversity" (really meaning more blacks) in F1 and at Ferrari-->I have yet to see a natural born black Italian person in F1 speaking Italian in the history of F1.

    Charles doesn't try to sue Charlie Brown for having his first name unlike Lewis trying to sue a watchmaker by the name of Hamilton that's been making watches since the late 1800's.

    but I digress.....

    If I understand these posts, charisma comes in different shades, and what's OK in Monaco isn't right in Stevenage. :p

    There is also a bit of snobism in some of the comments, IMO.

    BTW, diversity doesn't mean more black, just something more colourful and different.

    Many who subscribe to diversity aren't black at all.

    Well, one tries to attract a level of charisma and the other doesn't in their so called outside endeavors off the track.

    Honestly who cares? Why is it important? I don’t care even slightly. As long as they aren’t engaged in illegal activity, it’s a free world and they can do what they like just like sportsman in most other sports. Do you hear football fans saying Messi and Neymar should be replaced because they have bad taste in body art or unsavoury friends?

    To me, Hamilton easily earns his place on the F1 grid as one of the fastest drivers. He is much more worthy than all the pay drivers and no hopers that drive today.

    No
    I’ve been watching F1 for decades out of passion.
    I have to put up with people I don’t like for professional reasons all year long.
    This is normal part of life.
    When I watch a sport that is supposed to be fun, I have no desire to have to endure the circus and the political hypocrisy of someone who spends his time giving lessons to poor people.
    Can you understand that?

    I would suggest you’re watching the wrong sport if this is a problem. It’s now 2022, not 1982. It’s not hard to tune out the off track stuff and I struggle to understand why it’s an issue.

    It's called elitism; many people suffer from it, and it's contagious too.

    They think they are entitled to enjoy life without having to share anything with other folks they judge inferior.

    Good point, I think Lewis leaving would have a 10% of 1% effect. - so say $4 million. Stil more than Masi is worth to FIA in my humble opinion.

    I think those people would leave anyways if Lewis left under normal circumstances to be honest.

    I could care less what Hamilton does or doesn't do. He is not the center of F1. As for Mercedes, if Lewis decides to not come back, I'd grab Gasly and pair him with with Russell, and move forward. And the same with Max. He won the WDC, now he has to do it all over again. So I'll leave him alone to get on with it. I find Alonzo more interesting, and I think he's happy with Alpine. He is racing in F1, doing well with the car they give him, making nice money, and enjoying his life. I don't see anyone else wanting him at this stage in his career. I look forward to the new cars giving everyone some trouble...drivers and engineers...the aero, the tires/wheels, getting the most out of the engines...and having more fun and less drama. McLaren, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Alpha Tauri, Williams, and poor HAAS and Alfa Romeo...everything is unknown for all of them. Some may even get lucky.

    Please don’t confuse Frankensteinian squared-toed shoes, pearls, sheer dress shirt, and sheer leg curtain with lace trim for charisma. It’s an embarrassing look for a middle-age man, and there’s nothing remotely rakish about it.
