Hamilton: “do Not owe anything to the Formula 1”


the start of the season 2016, has not been the desired for a Lewis Hamilton that, up to the moment, do not know the victory after suffering various problems, to the point of having surrendered 36 points, with Nico Rosberg. Faced with this situation, many of their detractors have pointed out its peculiar style of life as the main cause of their worst results, and several authoritative voices say you should best represent the sport and exercise a leadership role. Hamilton, however, does not seem to matter too much these criticisms.

This week, Hamilton gave an interview in the chain of television of american news on CNN, and made clear its stance on the role as ambassador of the Formula 1 and about the power that the pilots should have in the decision making.

RetendrĂ­amos some things, but in the end it is those people who sits in a chair, grab a pen, pays the cheques and makes the money who make the decisions. I don’t think there is a problem.

It is a corporate business; money is power, and money rules the world, and the people that owns the sport and makes the decisions.” “What if I would like to have more power? In reality, not. Makes no difference”.
