Nelson Piquet fined

26 March, 2023

Three-time Formula 1 world champion Nelson Piquet has been ordered to pay five million Brazilian Reals (£780,000) for making racist and homophobic comments about Lewis Hamilton.

The 70-year-old Brazilian used a racially offensive term in referring to Hamilton in an interview in 2021.

Hamilton called for “archaic mindsets” to change after the footage surfaced. (BBC)
