So what did you make of Hamilton's comments?
As Seb has done for him in the past.— Kitty (@KateStudge) October 9, 2018
Shame that a lot of fans (on all sides) can't follow their example!
Although not a Ferrari fan I believe that Seb is a top F1 driver his record speaks for itself I would respect him even more if he held his hand up to some of the incidents that happen clearly a misjudgment on his part but in the heat of battle these things happen— Dave Wyatt (@haveabeermate) October 9, 2018
What exactly did Lewis think was disrespectful? I only read realistic opinions and analysis. Seb makes to many mistakes to be champ, not disrespectful to say that.— Jeroen (@Jimmy_Manna) October 9, 2018
I am really not a fan of Lewis, but this is superb from him. Credit where it's due.— Hope fights back. (@Well_Jaggy) October 9, 2018
Not a fan of him. But respect for him doing this.— Razak Malik (@razzy9) October 9, 2018
Both drivers have now defended each other from the media

I dont know, I think Lewis and Seb have a genuine mutual respect and Seb has stood up for Lewis at times too. Sometimes when he says certain stuff it's to get an advantage over his rival, just like boxers play mind games.— Aaron🇬🇧🇯🇲 (@WhatsDaMATA08) October 9, 2018
Seb defended Lewis in a press conference earlier this year too. Mutual respect from the pair. Everyone loves to hate one or the other but their sportsmanship is to be commended.— Tom Talks Cars (@TomTalksCars) October 9, 2018
I'm a Mercedes man through and through and I agree with this whole heartedly. Respect needs to not only apply to the drivers and media, but the fans as well. None of us could just jump in these cars and do it better that's for sure.— beastwoodfiles (@beastwoodfiles) October 9, 2018
I should also point out my respect to Hamilton for saying this. It's a really amazing response, to see him stick up for his rival <3— Liam Catterson (@LiamCatterson94) October 9, 2018
