Ummmm why does he employ them then ? are they just his US marketing dept?

Maybe he fancies been a rapper instead of a racing driver.

It's a strange setup.

It's not just that he has chosen a "pop star" like PR agency, I worry more what's in his mind when he makes that choice as this surely shows that he thinks he has other major talents outside motorsport or F1.
That means he is defocussing from his prime job....an F1 driver?

What is it with you guys? you tell him how to drive who to go out with and now question him on his choice of management agency...ffs give him some space...let him make his own decisions..

If he wants a rap crew in his side of the garage wtf has it got to do with u?

Well said Norville.

Jose this is Britain, and i'm afraid pomposity is raising its ugly head. F1 has become more accessible to the world but there are some with middle England type mentality who thinks that only certain types of people should be involved in this great and growing sport, so if a person tends to be vocal through a mike at certain octaves below an opera singer and wears a chain around his/her neck then they are regarded in a negative manner even though they contribute to the world economy.

Simon Fuller has acquired signatures of Beckham who has to be the most famous footballer ever, Andy Murray who is surly Britain's best tennis player and Lewis Hamilton who Nicky Louda has described as the best F1 rookie ever. Now all these three sportsmen have signed with this entertainment company but only the boy from Hertfordshire seems gets slated.

ron. andy murray...surly? well, maybe he is. and as for nicky louda? who is he? a loud voiced pop star?

seriously though, fuller signed beckham but certainly did not make beckham play any better. on the contrary, the more becks got involved with glitterati, the worse he became. still made money though. and as for murray, he hasnt progressed in any way, and is known for his henman like utterances "next year is my year..".etc

the question is, does lulu want to be a wdc again, or does he want to be just a name on an aftershave bottle or underwear? if he wants to be wdc, he needs a motivating manager, but if he wants to just be a brand, then go ahead, stick with fuller.
