Piquet, “I Have Being Banned Nothing More To Loose”… Continue New Racist And Homophobic Comments Against Hamilton

Published

on

Nelson Piquet has landed himself in even more hot water after additional footage of racist and homophobic slurs against Lewis Hamilton has emerged. On Monday, an interview from a 2021 podcast was released in which the three-time World Champion used a racial slur to describe Hamilton. Now, new video from the same podcast has emerged and shows Piquet repeating the racist epithet and adding a homophobic slur while discussing former rival Keke Rosberg, along with his son Nico and Hamilton.

 

 

Piquet has been widely condemned by F1, drivers, teams and the FIA and even Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who is dating his daughter, Kelly Piquet. A few days ago Piquet apologised for his language, but stated he had been misunderstood. “I would like to clear the stories circulating in the media about a comment I made in an interview last year,” Piquet said.

 

 

“What I said was ill thought out, and I make no defence for it, but I will clarify that the term used is one that has widely and historically been used in Brazilian Portuguese for a synonym for ‘guy’ or ‘person’ and was never intended to offend. I would never use the word I have been accused of in some translations.

 

 

“I strongly condemn any suggestion that the word was used by me with the aim of belittling a driver because of his skin colour. I apologise wholeheartedly to anyone that was affected, including Lewis, who is an incredible driver, but the translation in some media that is now circulating on social media is not correct. Discrimination has no place in F1 or society and I am happy to clarify my thoughts in that respect.”

 

 

The topic of racism has been front and centre at the Formula 1 press conference ahead of the British Grand Prix. After Nelson Piquet was slammed for his choice of words in describing Lewis Hamilton, it was all everyone could talk about on Thursday. While all eyes were on the seven-time World Champion and his comments, there was also interest in hearing from Max Verstappen.

 

 

That’s because Verstappen’s girlfriend, model Kelly Piquet, is the daughter of the three-time World Champion. The Dutchman made it clear he was on Hamilton’s side, while also stating Piquet isn’t a racist. “I think the wording which was used, even though of course with different kinds of cultures and things probably they said when they were little and younger, was not correct,” Verstappen told Sky Sports. “Let it be a lesson for the future not to use that word because it’s very offensive and especially nowadays it gains even more traction.”

 

 

Verstappen made it clear that there is unity amongst the F1 grid in their fight against racial discrimination. “That’s what we are working on in F1, together with Lewis,” he said. “We are working on that for the future and all the drivers agree on that. We all support that.” However, Verstappen added that the Brazilian legend isn’t a racist. “I’ve spent a bit of time with Nelson, I think more than the average person in general, and he is definitely not a racist,” said Verstappen. “He’s actually a really nice and relaxed guy. “I’m pretty sure also, in the statement he released, I think you can see the word in two ways. But I think it’s still just better not to use it.
