Will Buxton has blasted Lewis Hamilton critics after his historic Russian GP win.
Hamilton became the first centurion in F1 history on his 281st F1 start, when he crossed the finish line for the 100th time in his career. The seven-time champion created history yet again, and there is little doubt as to who the greatest of all time is based on many aspects.
However, some fans too to social media to criticise and hate on Hamilton. Buxton blasted those Lewis Hamilton critics on his own social media.
Buxton tweeted, “As I said on the post-race show yesterday, 100 race wins is a staggering achievement and figure.
“Seems incredible there remain those who don’t or won’t appreciate the genius in his craft and the brilliance of his talent. We’re lucky to live in the era of @LewisHamilton.”

Buxton sent out another tweet moments later, saying, “It’s funny how those who trot out the “best car” argument conveniently overlook the role Lewis played in the development and creation of the cars that have become the dominant force in the sport.”
Many fans hailed the F1 journalist for his comments. There were also those who continued to criticise Hamilton, and they just directed that hatred towards Buxton.
Hamilton took victory at the Russian GP in dramatic fashion, with rain and a clever gamble aiding his climb from P4 to P1.
The final six laps of the race saw Hamilton take the lead from McLaren’s Lando Norris, who himself made a gamble that failed. Hamilton’s decision to switch to intermediates paid off big time, while Norris spun having stayed on his slicks.
Hamilton retook the lead in the WDC standings, and now leads title rival Max Verstappen by two points.
