I don't think anyone claimed he did get where he is due to his colour.When you rub yourself against a donkey, hairs are bound to rub off. The reality was the Hamilton was promoted by Schumacher, there was no BLM then. Race had nothing to do with his ability, having said that comparing Schumacher and Hamilton with the Legendary Fangio, Moss, Stewart, they simply don’t compare. I doubt he’d cope without modern technology. He’s just a very lucky man who just happens to be black. He didn’t get there because of his colour.
He got there because his family could afford racing lessons when he was younger.
