As long as he Poop-Scoops who cares.
We all have choices to make.

Maybe the FIA could add a new regulation to appease all the people that find Lewis Hamiltons pet so offensive.

I think more concerns and comments should be leaning to this tyre fiasco.

otoh. I don't think that anyone finds lulus mascot, offensive. but it smacks a bit of cruelty, bringing a dog into the pits and experiencing the noise etc. do you bring your pet to work?

then of course, they could use him for a bit of extra tyre data....put shoes on roscoe, with the latest compound in them, and point him in the direction of the nearest cat............

invaluable info for merc..........

I'm sure this is under extremely close scrutiny of "animal protection societies".
Did Lewis not says somewhere that Roscoe is kept away at busy times!!

I reckon a "spy-cam" on the collar would be useful, and let the dog roam free.

How unexpected to see all the usual Hamilton hating suspects drawn to this story like flies to... UV lighting.

On a serious note, Canada has always been one of Hamilton's specialist tracks, so if he doesn't beat Rosberg here, he need to take a good look at things.

Unlike some I think the gulf at Monaco has been greatly exaggerated. Less than a tenth in quali, almost got past at the start (but for Monaco's tinyness) and only really one mistake to speak of, which cost one place at most and possibly not even that (would have been tight with Webber if he'd queued it right up). Not good but not what some have been making out.

Only people who failed to rate Rosberg (and Schumacher) are surprised by the situation.

I don't care for opinions by former drivers on the whole but the point Watson is making is sound. Lewis has beaten to pole by Nico three races running now, which is not what the top brass at Mercedes thought they were getting when they shelled out all that money. If it goes on like this then Hamilton's 'blip' will be seen as much more than that.

It's nice to see the lulu fanboys squirming over this, especially considering how much hate they dump on other drivers and how they were crowing about Lewis' 'greatness' only a few races ago!

The fact that he brings his dog into the paddock illustrates how oblivious he is to the needs of his 'best friend.' A dogs hearing is much more sensitive to loud noises that ours. Why doesn't he just shoot guns off next to the poor animals head. Well, maybe he does that at home. Lewis is a slave to his image, and he has no idea how tarnished that image really is.

the dog is fine... most college mascots are animals and they sit among 50-60 thousand screaming fans. LSU has a Tiger and it seems fine dealing with 90 thousand fans.
