Hamilton criticizes former F1 boss
Formula One champion
Lewis Hamilton has criticized “ignorant and uneducated” comments by former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone.
Hamilton, a six-time world champion and the only Black driver in F1, was shocked by Ecclestone’s claim during an interview with broadcaster CNN on Friday that “in lots of cases, Black people are more racist” than white people. “Damn, I just don’t even know where to start on this one ... so sad and disappointing to read these comments,” Hamilton posted on Instagram. “This is exactly what is wrong — ignorant and uneducated comments which show us how far we as a society need to go before real equality can happen.”
