I gave Lewis Hamilton some support in my own mind for everything that has happened to him up to now.
I could have forgiven him the lie if he owned up to it and was contrite.
But saying that he was following orders from a member of his own team. To try to re-direct the blame onto someone else is dishonourable.
The FIA may well be to blame for the mess up, and may be victimising Hamilton and the Maclaren team, they may even be punishing inconsistently, but that does not mean that Hamilton is not responsible for his own actions. And it doesn't mean that he can dump his responsibility onto a team member, even if it is true.
