Is Hamilton PR machine helping or hurting

6

The Telegraph’s Kevin Garside has written an interesting article dissecting Lewis’s PR appearances and the reaction to it.Is Lewis doing more damage by being over promoted or is he improving his career?  Is his appearance at everything, endorsements for all things and comments just opportunistic or is he really helping his cause.  Read the story here and let us know your thoughts on the issue.

If you are a fan of Lewis’s or not, this topic should be an interesting one to unpack.

Not that Nelson may ever have to worry about it since Piquet jr. will be in the IRL next year the way everyone is talking.

And for the money he makes, sitting down and talking to Peter Windsor for five minutes should be easy, if not an honor.
