Nelson Piquet in a racist attack against Lewis Hamilton

Nelson Piquet was furious at Lewis Hamilton after Formula 1 at Silverstone.

As a result, the hero three times racially expressed himself in an interview – something like now He is now condemned by both Mercedes and Formula 1.

The incident behind the racist manifesto took place during Formula 1 at Silverstone 2021. At that time, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen fought an intense battle, which ended in forcing Verstappen to crash and Hamilton finally won his eighth victory in the UK Grand Prix. You can read more about the violent incident here.

Verstappen, who spent the afternoon in hospital, was really angry, but fans and other experts have also repeatedly discussed the severe incident.

One of them is Nelson Piquet, a three-time world champion. He talked about it on the Motorsport Talk, in an interview that was conducted in November but released this week.

There he expressed himself racist against the seven-time world champion in Formula 1.

– Little n…. , he tuned the car so that there was no chance that the width of two cars would be at this turn. It’s a joke – it’s humor. In Portuguese, Pique told journalist Ricardo Oliveira in Motorsport Talk that it was lucky for him that only one driver (Verstappen) had a bad crash.

In the same statement he uses the n-word and adds that the other driver “got f**ked”. Before the UK Grand Prix, the statement took a turn around the world’s media, including German RTLAnd the CNN Brasilia and CNN wrote about it.

Pique, who is the father of Max Verstappen’s girlfriend Kelly Pique, did not comment on his statement further.

Formula 1 also condemns Pique’s statement by tweeting, among other things, that “Discrimination or racist language is unacceptable in all its forms and not part of society. Lewis is a wonderful ambassador for our sport and deserves respect”

Hamilton’s team, Mercedes, also posted a clear statement on social media.
