I don't particularly take offence at LH piping in the wind.He‘s giving his opinion. Everyone does it, he just happens to have a significant media profile.
You can take offence to it, but that’s just your opinion.
I do take offence at the privileged sportsman banging his drum saying that I need to be aware of and apologise for something that hasn't been part of my life ever or part of the F1 scene.
Anyway, that's just my opinion as you say. Surely it's as valid as his?
