Re: F1, Racism & BlackLivesMatter

I don't know what happened to my other post, but the T-Shirt... *in a podium ceremony* is definitely a political statement.

I am actually warm to Hamilton. I know he absolutely means well. But this is a misguided move by him. Very distasteful.

Hamilton is overdoing it with the politics

I can take the BLM writing on the helmet, I can take the activism... but the political slogan at a podium ceremony is not activism. It is a stunt. It's boneheaded. And I am not a white male. *edit* not white at all. Can we please, please, leave the overt politics out of at least the podium ceremonies?

So this was the tip of the iceberg for a very dodgy penalty. The problem is that the way the rule is applied encourages drivers and teams to "gamble".

Well, happy to just hear that Ricciardo was promoted a place due to Grosean's penalty (nothing against Grosean, but he does flirt with penalties more than Dan does). Despite being angry at Renault's decision... it is possible Dan would have ended up not too far ahead of 9th anyway, if at all.
