Oh yes, Christian 'The biggest crybaby in F1' Horner, trying to cause as much trouble for Mercedes as he possibly can.

This is going to be like 2012 with the title decided by an undeserved crash
I'm just angry and needed to say that somewhere

The trouble is he's making it personal against Hamilton, rather than Mercedes, which is why Hamilton was booed at the weekend. He's a big boy and he can take it but unless Horner drops this and moves on I do foresee more unpleasantness and, potentially, disruption.

Yeah, the return of booing has not been welcome, and reminds me of the dark days of 2014-15 where every Merc race winner got booed louder than they were cheered week-in week-out.

It does come across as a very deliberate tactic to target him as much as possible, and I am likewise concerned about the reaction that Red Bull are going to cause.

There has already been a fairly sharp spike in racist abuse being directed at Hamilton in particular and at Mercedes as a whole, and quite a few Max fans have been openly saying that they are ramping up the hostility because they think they have been wronged and that anything goes now.

Worse still is that there have been those wanting to stir conspiracy theories and to keep the Max fans in a fevered state of fury. I am worried that some are trying to create a mentality that is closer to that of football hooligans and that it might end up with that anger spilling over into fighting in the stands, with the continued prodding and stirring from Horner and others being used as justification for their acts.

Yeah, it's an unusual approach. My opinion is that he's observed the way the world's turned and he's taking the opportunity to be the racist prick he's probably always been.

Fans who boo drivers shouldn't be welcome at the track, I didn't like it when Vettel was being booed, and I don't like it now, it isn't a football match, these guys risk their lives for our entertainment, show some appreciation even if you're not keen on a particular driver.

If I were a Verstappen fan I’d take the opportunity this weekend to not leave myself open to being accused of being a racist prick. I really hope nobody does anything stupid that makes headlines.
