He is a athlete so that means he has to be a puppet and say what he is told to. It is what is best for the brand of the team and sponsors. The Media are the same. Its all about the brand image and what is PC.Why does someone in the free world have to apologise for stating the exact truth about Hamilton success, then have to publicly apologise for, well telling the truth.
Lando has to be careful what he says about Hamilton as he will be labeled a racist. Given the cars and people around him he is destined for success."After the race on Sunday, Norris was asked what he made of Hamilton breaking Michael Schumacher's all-time record of wins.
"I'm just happy for him, nothing more," the Briton replied. "It doesn't mean anything to me, really. He's in a car which should win every race, basically.

Yes, everyone has the right to their own opinion. They just don't have the right for everyone to like their opinion and shut up.

Athletes who are highly paid by teams and sponsors do not. They should of course, but they don't. That's why most F1 drivers sounds like corporate robots when interviewed, with no personality and never saying anything remotely interesting or controversial. They all tow the line because they're paid to tow the line, and if they don't they risk losing their highly paid job.Yes, everyone has the right to their own opinion.
