After Red Bull recently suspended Juri Vips for using the N-word during a livestream, a new racism incident has now surfaced in Formula 1. Nelson Piquet has made a racist statement about Lewis Hamilton.

In a recent interview, Nelson Piquet talked about the controversial crash between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton at last year’s British GP. In the interview, which dates back to last year, Piquet made a racist statement about Lewis Hamilton. Nelson Piquet is said to have used the infamous N-word during his analysis of the incident.

F1, the FIA ​​and Mercedes have already reacted to the statements of the three-time world champion who is the father of Kelly Piquet, Max Verstappen’s girlfriend.


“Discriminating or racist language in any form is unacceptable and has no place in this society,” said a Formula 1 statement. “Lewis is an incredible ambassador for our sport and deserves respect. His tireless efforts to increase diversity and inclusivity are a lesson to many and something we are committed to at F1.”

“We condemn in the strongest terms any use of racist or discriminatory language of any kind,” said Mercedes. “Lewis has been at the forefront of our sport’s efforts to fight racism, and he is a true champion of diversity on and off the track. Together we share a vision for a diverse and inclusive motorsport, and this incident underlines the fundamental importance of continuing to strive for a better future.”
