lAvis Hamilton appeared on stage to show his distaste for Racist comment by Nelson Piquet.
picket использовал португальский термин «neginho» («маленький ниггер») для уничижительного обозначения семикратного чемпиона при анализе встречи между Hamilton as well as Max Verstappen at Silverstone last season.
Alarm bells sounded in sports, with F1 and Mercedes issuance of statements and Hamiltonthrough social networks, and then on this issue.
“Let’s focus on changing the mentality,” he said in one tweet, written in Portuguese.
He then tweeted in more detail in English and, instead of addressing picket directly and create a public argument, Hamilton talked about how he was surrounded by these events all his life.
“It’s more than a language,” he said.
“These archaic views need to change and they have no place in our sport.
“These views surrounded me and I have been aiming for them all my life.
“We had enough time to learn. It’s time to act.”
Formula 1 is a sport that has fought for black representation throughout its history, and Hamilton is still the only black driver on the grid. This is a topic that he has spoken about at length many times.
