Lewis Hamilton F1 rebuke Nelson Piquet

Nelson Piquet, a three-time Formula One world champion, has come under fire from Lewis 

Hamilton for referring to him in an interview in a racial manner. After last year's British Grand Prix, 

when championship rivals Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen crashed on the opening 

lap at Silverstone, the 69-year-old Brazilian used the pejorative word in a podcast recorded in 

Portuguese. Piquet, the father of Verstappen's girlfriend Kelly, used a racial slur when 

criticizing Hamilton for how he handled the first corner of the race. 

Hamilton was "fortunate" to stay in the race, Piquet continued.
