The salty messages aimed at Lewis can only be for 2 reasons. Either because he's British or he's black. I hope it's the first and not the other. What really gets me is these Brits who are having a go. I remember Wimbledon a few years ago when Brits in the crowd were supporting the likes of Sampras when he was playing against Tim Henman.
I suspect the former in the vast majority of cases. Personally, I don’t particularly like Lewis in terms of his personality, I’ve never warmed to him - but all I see is a (very talented) racing driver, whether he’s black, white, brown, green, or whatever. He’s actually mixed race, but it doesn’t matter.

I never liked Schumey either in the same way, he was white. Potentially we might be heading into a situation where if you aren’t a fan of someone who is black you get called racist even if it has nothing to do with it.

He is a truly exceptional driver, credit where it’s due though.

I hate Tiger Woods, with a passion, and get accused of being racist for doing so. Actually, it's because no other golfer gets any coverage when he's playing, not his skin colour, but some people are very binary.
