“I haven’t really counted but I can say that the Formula 1 is really multicultural. Just look at the teams and their garages. I think it’s a little crazy that he’s on a Thursday so a point would be a day where you can’t see who the race all to attend and where there are less people around.”

Besides, it is not the first time that Hamilton racism in there brings in the F1. During the GP of Monaco in 2011 was Hamilton twice punished. After the end of the race he expressed a Hamilton firm criticism of the stewards and he asked himself, openly wondering why two times he was punished: “Maybe it’s because I’m black?”
