Re: Absolutely Disgusting

And just as bad as the perpetrators themselves, are all those who were happy to sit near to them and allow it to go on.

Sad to think that we're in the 21st century, and people can't even get over such a simple thing as the colour of ones skin.

Re: Absolutely Disgusting

I understand the FIA may strip them of the GP if it is repeated - the Spanish football fans can be very racist also

Re: Absolutely Disgusting

Bit difficult to enforce crowd control at a GP given the people are scattered throughout a large area and can move around (to some extent). I'd say the FIA wants to see some action from the race organisers (eg. use cameras to identify and ban people who hurl abuse).

That's just unbelievable and sickening.

I tried to write something deeper but I don't have the words right now.

Re: Absolutely Disgusting

Rather Pathetic really.......Not that I am a Hamiltion fan, too smug for me, but to use racial taunts is beyond th epale so to speak

'Strangely' Hamilton is at least half white....as his mother is white (not sure if his father has European lineage as well )......Have Always wondered How Lewis Hamilton can be the First 'African' F1 star as he is not exacly an 'African' genetically.
And the Spanish cannot really 'talk' , the concept of Blue blood comes from Spain where the masses were becomiing darker skinned and only Royalty retained their light colour .

Re: Absolutely Disgusting

I reckon nothing will happen. No action will be taken. Just as we've always seen with these Spanish racists before.

What I'd like to see (and it's probably never going to happen) is when these idiots appear, and assuming the teams spot it happening, or are told about it, they should all pull their cars off the track, pack up and go home

(and in the case of football, both teams should walk off the pitch)

Re: Absolutely Disgusting

There is a Solution, there are only 40 Million spanish, so British Migration to Spain an much Larger scale than currently will fix them well and good....This will work well on many Fronts. The British will get a warmer Climate, and The Poles a homeland that will not easily be invaded

All nations could send their homegrown racist scumbags out there, whilst advising the majority of decent Spanish to leave, then everyone would be happy, Spain would be full of [censored] and the rest of the world could go about it's business without having to put up with the childlike rantings of prehistoric man.

Although thinking about it, Portugal might feel a bit cut off.......

Re: Absolutely Disgusting

I just look at them and think: What a bunch of [email protected], they are just showing themselves up.

I think Hamilton's too full of self-love to be bothered that a bunch of redneck Spaniards have painted their faces black in a lame attempt to try and offend him.

Be that as it may, Hamilton has a huge following around the world. There will be kids who revere him seeing this. Kids who ARE offended by it.

There will also be kids who have been brought up by this very kind of ar5ehole, who will feel justified in their own beliefs, it will strengthen their feeling that there's something wrong with anyone with different skin colour.

Adults beliefs are generally too far entrenched to be changed, but kids minds are more fertile, and open to change. Lets not see the same mistakes made over and over again, eh?

It may well be water off a ducks back to one person, but to another it's far from that.

It's wrong, and needs to be stopped.

Re: Absolutely Disgusting

d'you know the best thing about this?

hamilton will no doubt see it and it will just gird him into being an even better driver, to make the gap between him and alonso look like an embarrassment to the spaniard, and go on to be the first black man to win the driver's championship the perfect response to those knuckleheads

i just wish he drove for ferrari

Horrible to see that. Not good for F1 which always seemed to be above the Football racism thing.
