Lewis Hamilton has hit out at Nelson Piquet’s racial remarks towards the seven-time world champion at Silverstone. Three-time world champion Piquet’s racial comments directed at Hamilton were revealed on Monday and the Brit has claimed that there needs to be a platform for younger people to come through and have a voice.
Hamilton told Channel 4: “They come from a different time when there was no inclusivity. Today, why are we giving them the platform? We’ve got to stop bringing in younger people who are more conscious of the environment that we live in, more conscious of the direction we need to go in and create more opportunities for them. That’s what we need to be doing. Creating more of a platform for the younger people to come through and have a voice and be a part of the changes that we’re working towards creating.”
