Nelson Piquet apologises for Lewis Hamilton comments but denies racist intent

It’s no surprise that fans of Lewis Hamilton have raced in to support him on Twitter. They’re upset over the latest racial abuse directed at him.

On Monday, a video emerged of fomer F1 driver Nelson Piquet referring to the seven-time champion using the Brazilian slang for the N-word.

Piquet used the slur while discussing last year’s British Grand Prix, where the Mercedes driver and Max Verstappen were involved in a crash.
Most Twitter users noted Hamilton has constantly been a victim of racism during his career. Only a select few believe that enough is being done about racism in the sport.
