Formula one seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton said he was  “disgusted and disappointed” by reports of abusive behavior among fans at the Austrian Grand Prix last Sunday.

Lewis Hamilton and other drivers urged Formula One officials to take action to back up their “We Race as One” initiative.

Fans were sexist catcalling, hurling homophobic abuse and there were multiple reports of “inappropriate touching of female fans” as well as the use of the n-word.

“Someone sitting in a crowd supporting someone and receiving abuse — it’s crazy to think we are experiencing those things still in 2022 so we have to continue to do more,” said Hamilton, still the only black driver in the elite sport.

“It just highlights it’s an issue all over and it comes down to education and, of course, ignorance. We all have to work together with our platforms to spread that positive word. …

“People should come here, should feel safe, should feel included and should be able to follow who ever it is you want to follow. It shouldn’t matter … your gender, your sexuality, the color of your skin. It should just be everyone here to have a good time.”

Formula One officials acknowledged that some fans were “subject to completely unacceptable comments by others at the event” in a statement issued Sunday. “We have raised this with the promoter and security and will be speaking to those who have reported these incidents and are taking this very seriously.
