I really don't understand why Lewis is not overwhelmingly liked by the British, let alone having so many haters in his own country. Since I'm not British, I never had any reason to cheer for him, in fact he had fought against drivers that I cheered for before and during F1, so I would be one to really "hate" him. I'm also not a fan of hip hop, tattoos, etc., so I'm not a big fan of his personal style either. However, I recognize that he can easily be considered one of the all-time greats of F1, together with Senna and Schumacher. I would love to see him driving for the Scuderia before retiring too. Because I don't follow British celebrities and gossip, I have no clue why he is not put on a pedestal in the UK like Senna and Schumacher were in their respective countries. Yes, he might be a primadonna sometimes, but thanks to him the UK became again the country with the most F1 championships after being overtaken by Brazil in the 90's and by Germany in the 2000's. So what are the reasons for that? It's a sincere question, I apologize if it should be obvious.
