Mercedes have already won the Constructor’s Championship at Imola and Lewis Hamilton is an arm’s length away from clinching the Drivers’ Championship.
Lewis often receives praise for being humble and generous on the grid. His kind nature and soft heart win fans off the track. However, his sense of humor is also that of a champion.
Several pages on social media post a gallon of memes and trolls on every celebrity. Earlier Lewis reposted one of those memes as his Instagram story, taking a dig at teammate Valtteri Bottas.
Hamilton tagged the post as “This is so good”. on his story and it ruffled some feathers. Although many of his fans feel this was a nasty joke, we are sure Lewis meant no harm by it. It was all good humor.
Bottas is, according to numbers, the second-best F1 racer in the world at this point. As a matter of fact, he is the only racer on the grid that can still challenge Lewis Hamilton from time to time.
The Finn has raced extremely well this year. Although Max Verstappen often outsmarted him, he has held the Dutchman at bay, mostly. Bottas has led races several times this year, and he was in the lead at Imola as well before his pit stop.
Lewis Hamilton usually stays very conscious about his social media handles and his online presence. This might be the first time that he has mocked another racer on the grid. Therefore, the fans should not lose any sleep over his shenanigans.
The Stevenage man swooped to George Russell’s aid when the latter took to social media in a bid to issue an apology following a completely avoidable mistake.
The champion had consoled his compatriot, saying that these minor mistakes will happen and Russell should not lose heart over them.
Jokes and leg-pulling are very common among teammates. If the jokes are healthy and not insulting, the fans should avoid complicating matters.
