Several drivers have weighed in on JVâ€™s comments regarding Lewis Hamiltonâ€™s chop block at the beginning of races. Such drivers as Heidfeld, Wurz and Webber have denied that there is any wrong doing with Hamiltonâ€™s tactics. Perhaps Fisi said it best when he explained that JV talks too much.
My perspective? I have no issue with the chop move of Hamiltonâ€™s. However, I do recall the absolute vitriol from darn near all the drivers when Schumacher did it. It was his trademark move at the beginning of a race and the grid was incandescent over the move. Somehow, over the course of 7 months; it has become perfectly fine and excusable as Lewis is just defending his line. Shameless.
