Toto Wolff: Hamilton was further motivated by racist insults
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff revealed that the racist moderation that Lewis Hamilton enjoyed during his career only motivated the Briton.
Lewis Hamilton made his Formula One debut 2007, and the current World Champion became the first black racer in the fastest circus. His boss Toto Wolff revealed before the race in Mexico that Hamilton has been plagued with numerous abuses since his childhood because of his skin color.
“When Lewis was younger he was always the only black racer and I know he was a victim of racial abuse. When things like that 10 happen to a year old baby, it causes scars for their entire lives. Today, Lewis is a well-formed personality with strong character, but certain scars remain. I know this further motivated Lewis and made him make all these remarkable results he achieved in Formula One. ”
