Yes, I saw your point and didn’t agree with it at all. Hamilton has nothing to prove.and tbh, this framing just reads a bit insecure to me. He may well join in because if everyone else drops their standards but that’s not the same as doing so because oh no otherwise some quick kid will boss him around.
LH has given MV a wide berth so far .... even driving off the track to stay away from him .. to the point that he looks like a bit of a pussy ... but its not important.
However, there is something about CL that is more insidious than MV .... that makes me think, beyond my better judgment, that payback is necessary ... its probably a guy thing but MV comes across to me like a stand up guy - even if he talks a bit too much and a bit too big sometimes ... but what you see is what you get.
Having started to watch him more closely, I can now understand why some of the people at Ferrari dont like CL at all ... he is a very sneaky bugger.
This is the kind of guy who will take a mile if given an inch ... you have to show him that you are willing to punch him the face, just to be able have a polite conversation with him .... otherwise he turns himself into your boss... or tries to do so.
So logically, in IQ terms, you are right ... but in EQ terms, the answer is different.
