After the disastrous start to the new Formula 1 (F1) season, you would think that Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone and FIA president Max Mosley would be doing everything within their power to right the boat.
You would be wrong! The greatest scandal this season has been ‘Liegate’ where defending champion Lewis Hamilton lied to the race stewards (twice) on a racing incident in Australia. The punishment for lying is a 3 race suspended ban for McLaren. The punishment is a 3 race ban but the ban is suspended. In case you are wondering what that means; it means that nothing will happen to McLaren!
Now McLaren’s sporting director Dave Ryan and boss Ron Dennis has both fell on their swords for the team but what about Hamilton? He was the one who lied to the stewards and that is clearly something you cannot do. Hamilton has been screaming that it’s all McLaren’s fault and he was just following orders. That’s total bull! He’s been racing for years and don’t know you can’t lied to the race stewards (twice)? It just proved that not only is he dishonest, he is a lair; he’s a dishonest lair who can do so with a straight face in front of the cameras.
I’ll love it if Hamilton managed to win the F1 title this year, just to see the egg on the face Bernie Ecclestone and Max Mosley. Seeing those two trying to defend this idiotic decision now is great; just imagine how it would be at the end of the season if Hamilton wins the title!
Go, Go, Hamilton!
