Hamilton ‘disgusted’ amid reports of racist, homophobic and abusive conduct at Austrian Grand Prix

The
Purple
Bull
Ring
plays
host
to
Formula
A single
this
weekend,
but
the
conduct
of
supporters
has
by now
been
continuously
in
the
spotlight.

Mercedes
driver
Hamilton
questioned
the
group
after
numerous
cheered
a
crash
involving
the
7-time
world
winner
on
Friday.

The
37-yr-old
labelled
the
response
of
supporters
as
“thoughts-blowing”,
with
several
supporting
property
favorite
Max
Verstappen,
who
was
jeered
by
sections
of
the
group
at
the
British
Grand
Prix
very last
weekend.

The
race
weekend
at
Spielberg
has
also
seen
stories
of
sexist
and
homophobic
abuse,
and
the
F1
introduced
a
statement
indicating
they
had been
investigating
the
issues
on
Sunday.

Hamilton
has
due to the fact
taken
to
Instagram
to
condemn
the
conduct
in
Austria,
where
the
abuse,
as
properly
as
harassment,
has
clouded
the
11th
race
of
the
time.

“Disgusted
and
unhappy
to
hear
that
some
followers
are
experiencing
racist,
homophobic
and
commonly
abusive
behaviour
at
the
circuit
this
weekend,”
Hamilton
posted.

“Attending
the
Austrian
Grand
Prix
or
any
GP
should
never
be
a
resource
of
panic
and
soreness
for
supporters
and
anything
ought to
be
accomplished
to
be certain
that
races
are
harmless
spaces
for
all.

“Make sure you,
if
you
see
this
going on,
report
it
to
circuit
security
and
to
@f1,
we
can not
sit
again
and
permit
this
to
continue.”

Hamilton,
looking for
his
initial
victory
of
the
2022
marketing campaign,
will
commence
the
race
in
eighth,
with
Verstappen
in
pole
immediately after
triumphing
in
the
dash
on
Saturday.
