given that hamilton has got into a season-long rivalry with every one of his teammates except button you can probably infer what a nice guy button must be
Well, that’s not quite true, it was pretty dicey between them the whole time, even though British media preferred to portray it otherwise. There was the ‘unfollow’ incident, the telemetry tweeting, the ‘I’ll find who’s responsible for the wrong tyre strategy’ moment…okay, well, it was mostly Lewis slowly unraveling over not being able to consistently beat JB as he became increasingly convinced Mclaren were defecting to JB’s corner, hence eventually leaving the team. JB just basically got increasingly dismissive and borderline derisive till he reached the point where he outright stopped answering questions about Lewis. Since Lewis left the team with JB having won the long game (beaten him on points over the course of being teammates) though, I’m sure it’s easy for JB to let bygones be bygones at this point.
(But, yes, as mentioned by others, Heikki was definitely the teammate that Lewis got along with best, likely by virtue of no competition, though it was a little sad when Heikki got to the point near the end of his Mclaren career where he was increasingly outspoken about the team’s preferential treatment, but that’s a given both ways.)
2007, though. 2007.

#i've been in this sport too long #tbh jb is probably the best in the business at insuring his position through force of personality #if you watch the joint interviews for jb and lewis and then nico and lewis #it's jb making the alpha male borderline-homophobic jibes putting lewis on the backfoot in the first #and lewis doing it to nico in the second #formula 1 eh
"Hamilton: If you sit in their car and drive a race, there is no longer a friend, but only a teammate. And you want to, you must conquer. That’s obvious.
Rosberg: Aha, I’ve just learned something. I always thought there would be something like respect between us. But now I realise that I have to approach the matter differently from now on!"

Once upon a time you whispered softly in my ear loving words and fairy tales that I longed to hear
Lewis is right, of course, and I despair that Nico was ever stupid enough to believe you should treat ‘friends’ any differently on track, but it’s fairly interesting to see the long unraveling. Remember when people used to heap on him for being too soft and gutless and never being able to amount to anything? Aww, feels like just last year!
Princess I know you’re new to this but when you happen to ruin your teammate’s race you’re not supposed to then ruin your own too ffs

Really quick sketch right after Hungary that I’d missed the window for. There comes a period of time every season where I end up doing nothing but sketches of Princess sporting varying negative emotions, and I rather suspect that period has come upon us this year.
It looks a bit like the lines were colourised after the fact, but that is actually my default sketching colour - that’s how well I’m trained. Q_Q

Speaking of, how ecstatic must he be that this German team has finally gone and done it, huh?

Happy Birthday to our one and only! We’ve been horrifically busy lately, but we couldn’t miss our precious princess’ birthday after all. Feat. Rocky
and reused art assets *cough*. He’s given us far more joy this year than we could’ve hoped for…and we can only pray there will be more.
All the best, princess, with all our love,
