  1. He is definitely NOT a pay driver. A pay driver would never get podiums or poles. Every driver in F1 is rich. Accusing an Amerindian-Jewish driver of being guilty for the inequality in the world while White driver who are also rich with less deeds (like Norris and Russell) do not receive the same judgement is a proof of racism and antisemitism.
