Lewis Hamilton says British fans shouldn’t boo Max Verstappen, but “maybe some of them are still feeling the pain from last year”.
After Max Verstappen was loudly booed by the fans at Silverstone, Lewis Hamilton was asked to give his thoughts on the crowd’s reaction.
While Lewis says it could be a reaction to the unjust way he lost the 2021 championship to Verstappen at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the Briton says booing is not the right way of dealing with this.
“I think we’re better than that,” Hamilton said.
“So I would say we don’t need to do booing. But we’ve such great fans, and our sporting fans, they feel emotion up and down.

“I definitely don’t agree with booing, we don’t need to do that. We should be here pushing everybody.
“It doesn’t make a difference when you boo someone, they’ve already made the mistake, or whatever it is.
“But I really do appreciate the support I have here, and maybe some of them are still feeling the pain from last year.
“So either way I appreciate it,” the Briton concluded.
