Lewis Hamilton has been very vocal about how he reads himself up on the Internet. The Brit has often also gotten into a tussle with media houses regarding their coverage of him on their respective platforms.
Not only that, he also took a dig at the ‘Sky Sports experts’ that cover races, saying they don’t focus on how drivers use their skills to produce results on the race track.
In the past few weeks, Hamilton has called out various news websites for the way they have covered content about Hamilton.
During the Spa weekend, Hamilton had criticised Daily Mail for misconstruing his words on the Ocon situation, after the young Force India driver had secured 3rd place on qualifying day.
In his most recent Instagram story, Hamilton called out Daily Mail, for coming up with a title that didn’t quite bode well with him.
Hamilton came into the Monza paddock on a scooter, a common mode of transport in paddocks.
The article title stated, ‘Lewis Hamilton finally arrives at the Italian Grand Prix… on a kids’ scooter in the pouring rain’.
Hamilton didn’t quite like the title and posted an Instagram story, calling out the writer, saying that the writer wished if he could have that scooter.
Hamilton has always been a little sceptical of how the media has covered him all through his career.
He feels that they have focussed on his personal life a little too much and the way he carries himself off the track. For him, the focus should be how he displays his skills on the racetrack.
Hamilton is gearing up for the all important Italian GP, a weekend that is sure to have a massive influence on the world title race.
Do you think Hamilton is correct in his criticism of the media? Or does he overreact a little?
