Lewis Hamilton has spoken to the press regarding the racial slurs and banners at the recent test. He is understandably saddened at the response.
My only concern is this:
â€œThe only thing that I have done is to try to give the best of myself and try to win the championship.
“At no point have I tried to deliberately prejudice Fernando but the fight has been very tough and my image in Spain has been severely damaged.”
When he said this:
“Well, he thought he was at the beginning. But I don’t think that should be the case, we should be a team. It should be equal.
“He (Alonso) showed me just how not to behave as an F1 driver.”
These are the type of things that seem easily avoidable from a PR standpoint. I can’t imagine why Spanish fans feel Lewis has been having a go at Fernando lately when these types of comments serve no purpose.
