The British GP winner Lewis Hamilton was a victim of racial abuse via social media after the race.

Sunday’s British GP got another big upheaval- the race winner Lewis Hamilton received racially abusive comments on social media following the race. Mercedes and Formula 1 have released a statement regarding the incident.

“During, and after, yesterday’s British Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was subjected to multiple instances of racist abuse on social media following an in-race collision,” mentioned in the statement.

“Formula 1, the FIA, and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team condemn this behavior in the strongest possible terms. These people have no place in our sport and we urge that those responsible should be held accountable for their actions.

“Formula 1, the FIA, the drivers, and the teams are working to build a more diverse and inclusive sport, and such unacceptable instances of online abuse must be highlighted and eliminated.”

ASN Motorsports supports the statement and never tolerates any racist comments, behavior, and discrimination of any kind.
