I'm included. I sure like to see beautiful women. But... that's a reason for ...10 minutes, then if they are bad at what they do that reason will fade and we will concentrate in the racing qualities and we will admire the best ones no matter what. Anna Kournikova sure was great but it caused big sensation for that for about a year or so. Then people just went for Hingis, Williams sisters, Henin, Graff again. Why? Because the true tennis fans admire great players. Kournikova faded really fast and got into other things. It's normal for human beings to be atracted for the phisical characteristics first. It's evolutive and natural. But after that first impact all that matters it's the qualities: human or professional.
It's a bit the same with Hamilton. In 2007 people were all about "oh he's black! the first black, it's diferent, media attention, bla bla bla" Then, he started to show his quality and sudently formula 1 fans don't care if he's black, white, tall, short. He's Lewis Hamilton the great champion.
Ten Thumbs Up on this post.
Edit: Great discussion, people. And a note for your consideration...
Is it possible we think women show more flaunt than men because we aren't exactly looking at a mag that might show Lewis in his scanties?
Only me and the Universe knows I never saw that photo, nor the Horner Horror. ;-)
