Amid Nelson Piquet’s current racist controversy, a new video has emerged in which he uses disgusting racial and homophobic slurs against Lewis Hamilton.
As if things couldn’t get worse, after a video of three-time champion Nelson Piquet using a racial slur against Lewis Hamilton came out, a new video now emerged of the Brazilian using a racial and a homophobic slur when referring to the Briton in a different interview.
A video of Piquet talking on the ‘Motorsport Talks’ YouTube channel in November 2021 has emerged, and in it he was discussing his rivalry with 1982 F1 champion Keke Rosberg.

After he dismissed Rosberg as being “s*it”, he started berating his son, 2016 F1 champion Nico, by saying he thinks in 2016 “the ‘neguinho’ [Hamilton] was giving more his a** at that time, he was kind of bad”.
As already explained ‘neguinho’ is a Brazilian equivalent to the “N-word”, and according to native speakers, when used in a derogatory way, the term is considered to be racist.
The boyfriend of Piquet’s daughter, Max Verstappen, has recently defended the Brazilian by saying he was “definitely not a racist”, but it appears to be harder and harder to argue in his favour.
You can watch the video below.
