F1, Hamilton crash: controversy over fans’ cheering
British media harshly criticized the roar of joy that came from the stands of the Red Bull Ring
The booing of Lewis Hamilton at the Red Bull Ring was expected after the controversy and challenges to Verstappen at Silverstone, minus the roar of joy that came from the stands after the seven-time world champion’s crash during qualifying for the sprint race of the Austrian Grand Prix.
The Anglocaribbean driver was the protagonist of a frightening crash in Turn 7 at over 200 kilometers per hour, and the roar of joy that came from the stands was deafening. The British media harshly criticized the behavior of Verstappen and Red Bull supporters, also very harshly Toto Wolff: “We have to talk more to the fans and make them understand that they are wrong when they cheer for a rival driver’s crash, or that they boo during interviews. Nobody has to do that we have to work with F1 and the media to educate people.”
