After the Monaco Grand Prix various media outlets reported that Lewis Hamilton blasted the FIA for deciding to delay the start of the race “for safety reasons in consideration that there has been no wet running this weekend”.
When relayed this reason, Lewis reportedly said: “We’re Formula 1 drivers, that’s definitely not a good reason.”
However, Lewis has now said that he did not criticise the FIA and asked the media not to use him to create controversy.

“So the media are saying I criticised the FIA for the last race but it’s absolute rubbish,” the Briton wrote on social media.
“I thought they did a great job at the weekend. Could we have started the race when it was meant to start, probably, but then they would have had to stop it soon after.
“We raced when it was safe and that’s what’s most important. Please don’t use me to create a negative narrative,” Hamilton concluded.
