Lewis Hamilton has lost the 2021 championship to Max Verstappen in controversial fashion, after race director (at the time) Michael Masi changed the rules which govern the use of the Safety Car at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
This caused many of his fans, as well as other F1 viewers, to call for the results of the championship to be reversed.
However, after it has been revealed by the FIA that Red Bull was in breach of the 2021 budget cap, the calls to heavily penalize the team and hand Lewis the 2021 title, became even louder.
Ahead of the United States Grand Prix Lewis was asked to comment on these calls.

“Firstly, I love my fans, I love how passionate they are,” the Briton said.
“I have heard the things that have been said. I am generally looking forwards, I am looking at how I can win another championship.
“I am not… I have my own opinions of what we did as a team and how we did it last year, and I am really proud of that and the belief in what we earned.
“It doesn’t change a huge amount,” Lewis concluded.
