Dutch former Formula 1 driver Robert Doornbos says if “someone drives a beautiful race – like Hamilton in Budapest” he should be applauded and no booed.

This coming weekend Formula 1 moves to the Netherlands for Max Verstappen’s home grand prix. Robert Doornbos says he hopes the Dutch crowd will be respectful toward Lewis Hamilton.

“I can only hope for a positive reception for Hamilton at Zandvoort,” Doornbos said.
