'Nelson Piquet Sr disgusts me' - F1 reacts to Lewis Hamilton slur

The F1 world has reacted with a mixture of shock and disgust to the racist slur used by Nelson Piquet to describe Lewis Hamilton.

Reports emerged early on Tuesday of the slur, used by Piquet in an extensive interview with a Brazilian media outlet in late 2021.

Piquet used the slur when giving his opinion on the seven-time world champion's clash with title rival Max Verstappen during the 2021 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Reaction to the comments was swift and strong as prominent F1 names and organisations responded in horror, while the hashtag #WeStandWithLewisHamilton was soon trending on Twitter.
