Athletistic/Formula-1. ‘Red Bull’ driver Max Verstappen has commented on the racist scandals involving Estonian rider Jüri Vips and Nelson Piquet, who called Lewis Hamilton a ‘neguinho’.

“It’s a general problem that doesn’t just affect Formula 1. I think it’s a mistake to use such words. It all starts at a young age. We have to learn that such words shouldn’t be used in principle. All of us, including Formula 1 and Lewis, are working on it for the future and all the racers will support it,” Verstappen said.

It should be noted that Nelson Piquet is the father of Max Verstappen’s girlfriend.
