    I still wish i was there to help save that driver from burning those men who just stood there are THE FULL EMBODIMENT OF COWARDS THE 3-4 OF THEM COULD HAVE SAVED THAT MANS LIFE

    To make it and STAY in formula 1, I think you need to be a GENTLEMAN. Hence why Nikita Mazespin is going to be out of a seat next season

    I probably do have an unpopular opinion here... but for me is sportsmanship something else than saving other people's life. If I would see a scene were a people is about to die I would immediately try everything to safe him. It doesn't matter if it is in sports or in life. There is absolutely no question that these were great moments of some drivers but in this regard it isn't sportsmanship (my opinion) it's more something like humanity 🤷‍♂️

    We live in a world when giving back a place to someone who gave it to you is considered “sportsmanship”. No it’s called not being an absolute scumbag u don’t get a medal for that.

    • Giri_shiva

      @Moobeus true,not that many are having sportsmanship like the old ones

    • Moobeus

      @Giri_shiva I understand that, that’s why I’m saying it isn’t really a reflection of Hamilton being a sportsman, but really just shows how unsportsmanlike most drivers are that this is considered an unexpected and sportsmanlike move.

    • Giri_shiva

      @Moobeus most of the drivers won't do that.even schumi gave barricbello the first place only after bagging his fifth title already.also giving back ur position when ur the first driver and are standing second in championship standings is definitely sportsmanship.sportsmanship doesn't need to be always abt heroism.sometimes showing respect to ur rival is also considered sportsmanship

    • Giri_shiva

      @Moobeus valterri was a second driver.and in the start of 2017 Ferraro were leading.merc were devouring for a win so badly.if Lewis had overtook kimi,he could get closer to seb.but sadly,Lewis couldn't.hence,he gave back as promised

    • Moobeus

      @Giri_shiva sportsman ship is going above the line of duty to do something respectable, not literally fulfilling the terms of something you agreed to. Valterri let him pass on the condition that he would give it back if he couldn’t gain anymore places, so he gave it back. That is just expected it’s not sportsmanship.

    David Purley not being able to rescue Roger Williamson is horrible. Especially because he felt they could have saved him.

    If you did cry to the Senna and comas story, you arent human

  • AriefPlayz

    I had a feeling Niki Lauda was going to be in this one. I just didn’t know which number.

  • Inkysquid4

    This just shows that us humans are more than selfish people. That is what makes us special. Every single story in this is what people need to look at today, whether they like F1 or not, as the drivers in here- victims and heroes- show us what it is to be human. Rest In Peace all the drivers who were killed or have since passed on.

    I was sitting in my hall while watching this video. But I moved to my room when it reached top 2. Not because there's something inappropriate for family in this video, but because I know that tears would be inevitable

    The Schumacher-Barichello incident was a BS moment. How is that sportsmanship? Schumacher made Barichello stand on the top step coz the crowd was booing at him and Ferrari. At Indy, they tried to do a synchronous crossing of the line, with the intention of Schumacher winning and Barichello coming in second. When that didn't happen, he acted as if he planned it all along! True sportsmanship were those incidents where fellow drivers ran in to save their trapped comrade, without fear for their lives! Senna, Peterson and Williamson incidents were the most painful and sad to watch.

    honestly, the team that asks a driver to let go of his position for his teammate is a team that lacks integrity. Let the drivers race for the position, isn't that the point of the whole sport!

    Didier Pironi, considered a villain in the 1982 San Marino Grand Prix, somehow blamed for Villeneuve's death at the next race.....but at the Canadian Grand Prix that year, he ran out of his car and tried to save Riccardo Paletti.

    No.10 Hamilton’s wasn’t sportsmanship. It was team orders. He would have been Vettel multi 21 with Webber had he not given the place back. So settle down on the ‘sportsmanship’ status

    ¨Let Michael pass to the champiomship¨ and all the work Rubens done till that moment, just go to trash? If was senna on the cockpit he just turned the radio off and go more faster to victory, bacause he know it who he was and what the team was without him.
