Charles Leclerc the Ferrari Formula One driver has come out in support of Lewis Hamilton and has urged the FIA to do something about the racist comment that was directed towards the Brit by Nelson Piquet Sr.
Charles Leclerc has huge respect for Lewis Hamilton and after looking at the racial slur of Piquet, the Monegasque driver has taken to social media to express his displeasure against the actions of the 69 year old.
Leclerc via his TWITTER handle has written, “Knowing Lewis since I arrived in Formula 1, he has always been extremely respectful to me and everyone he meets.”
“Those values should be the standard towards anybody around the world. The comments made toward Lewis should not be tolerated, and we should continue to push for a more diverse and inclusive sport. We need to remove discriminatory behavior and racist language in any form from not just our sport, but society as well.”
Charles Leclerc has summed up the whole situation nicely and it can be said that Leclerc like many other people is someone who looks up to Lewis as an inspiration and thus has asked the FIA to take solid action against Piquet.
Charles Leclerc has been admiring Lewis Hamilton since 2018
Charles Leclerc made his F1 debut in 2018 and it was at that time Leclerc was able to get close to Hamilton to understand his way of thinking since then the 24-year-old has nothing but respect for the Brit.
Leclerc believes that Hamilton is one of the nicest people going around in Formula One and someone who greets everyone with respect.
The Ferrari driver wants to carry forward the values that the 37-year-old has shown in the sport and sees it as his and the younger generations’ duty to continue with the values that the Brit has given during his tenure of more than 15 years in the sport.
The current era is full of racist and discriminatory people like Nelson Piquet and Leclerc has asked people not only in F1 but in general to become more considerate towards such sensitive topics and do their bit in making the world a better place to live and prosper in.
