劉易斯-漢密爾頓:應拒絕 "年長的聲音 "發表冒犯性言論的平台

劉易斯-漢密爾頓呼籲拒絕為具有攻擊性觀點的 "年長聲音 "提供發表評論的平台。

梅賽德斯車手漢密爾頓說。"歧視不是我們應該給予一個平台的東西。

"我們需要人們將人們聚集在一起"。

他補充說:"我們都是一樣的,我們看到的評論是沒有幫助的。"

漢密爾頓的這番話是在三屆世界冠軍皮奎特在本周出現的播客中使用種族攻擊性詞語來指稱七屆冠軍的背景下說的。

周四上午,前F1老闆伯尼-埃克爾斯通在接受ITV《早安英國》的採訪時,表示支持俄羅斯總統和他在烏克蘭的行動。

漢密爾頓說:"需要有一些責任感,"。"你知道你會得到什麼[與埃克爾斯通]。

"我不知道他們(廣播公司)的目標是什麼。從一個最終相信戰爭、數百萬人流離失所和成千上萬人被殺的人那裡聽到;那個人正在做這些,他們支持他。而我無法相信這就是我今天聽到的內容。

"這將使我們倒退幾十年,但我們還沒有看到真正的痛苦,我們不需要再支持這些了。外面有很多人想要積極向上。如果他們不想積極,就不要給他們空間。

"我們不能再放大這些製造分裂的聲音了"。

漢密爾頓還提到了另一位三屆冠軍傑基-斯圖爾特接受的採訪,他上周說,他認為漢密爾頓應該退休。

長期以來,漢密爾頓一直對他所認為的斯圖爾特對他的消極態度感到沮喪,他說。"在過去的兩個星期里,我認為沒有一天不被這些人說些負面的東西或試圖把我打倒。

"但我仍然在這裡。口頭服務是不夠的,我們需要推動行動。

"我一直試圖採取高姿態,尊重他人。為什麼我們要給這些人一個平台?

"他們顯然不願意改變,在今天的世界上,這些歧視和微觀侵略的底色是沒有幫助的,它正在製造更多的分裂。我喜歡米歇爾-奧巴馬說:'當他們走低時,我走高',這就是我努力做的。"

在賽車運動中關於種族主義的令人沮喪的一周,紅牛也解僱了他們的後備車手朱里-維普斯,因為他在一個在線遊戲流中說了一句冒犯性的話。

當被問及他是否認為F1存在種族主義問題時,漢密爾頓說。"我們生活在這個世界上,世界各地仍然存在着歧視,你在周圍都能看到它,。這些微不足道的攻擊出現了,夠了,沒有人應該刷掉種族主義,也不應該由我來刷掉它。我們需要大的組織來表明立場。

皮奎特是馬克斯-維斯塔潘的搭檔凱利-皮奎特的父親。直到周四,漢密爾頓2021年的冠軍對手或他的團隊都沒有對此事發表評論。

在英國大獎賽周末的第一天,維斯塔潘在銀石賽道說。"所使用的詞語絕對是不正確的。我堅決反對種族主義,這不僅與劉易斯和F1有關,而且與一般情況有關。

"對我來說,每個人都是平等的,這是我成長的方式。一般來說,年輕一代的很多事情已經在朝着正確的方向發展了。你必須明白有些話不能再使用了。這就是我們必須努力的地方。"


Lewis Hamilton has called for "older voices" with offensive views to be refused a platform on which to make comments.

Mercedes driver Hamilton said: "Discrimination is not something we should be giving a platform.

"We need people to be bringing people together."

He added: "We are all the same and the comments we are seeing are not helpful."

Hamilton's remarks come in the context of triple world champion Piquet using a racially offensive term to refer to the seven-time champion in a podcast that emerged this week.

And on Thursday morning ex-F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, in an interview on ITV's Good Morning Britain, voiced his support for the Russian President and his actions in Ukraine.

"There needs to be some accountability," said Hamilton. "You know what you're going to get [with Ecclestone].

"I don't know what their [the broadcaster's] goal is. To hear from someone that ultimately believes in the war, displacement of millions of people and the killing of thousands of people; the person who's doing that, they support him. And I can't believe that's what I heard today.

"This is going to put us back decades, but we have yet to see the real brunt of the pain, We don't ned to be supporting that any more. There are plenty of people out there who want to be positive. If they don't want to be positive, don't give them the space.

"No more can we be amplifying these voices that are creating that divide."

Hamilton was also referring to an interview given by another three-time champion, Jackie Stewart, who said last week that he thought Hamilton should retire.

Hamilton, who has long been frustrated by what he sees as Stewart's negative attitude towards him, said: "These past two weeks I don't think a day has gone by without one of these people saying negative things or trying to bring me down.

"But I'm still here. Lip service is not good enough, we need to push for action.

"I've always tried to take the high road and be respectful. Why do we give these guys a platform?

"They are clearly not willing to change and these undertones of discrimination and micro-aggressions in today's world are not helpful, it is creating more division. I love when Michelle Obama says: 'When they go low, I go high,' and that's what I try to do."

In a dispiriting week for motorsport with regard to racism, Red Bull have also sacked their reserve driver Juri Vips after he made an offensive remark on an online gaming stream.

Asked if he believed F1 had a racism problem, Hamilton said: "We are living in the world and there is still discrimination all around the world, you see it all around you,. These micro-aggressions come out., enough is enough, no-one should have to brush off racism and it shouldn't be for me to have to brush it off. We need big organisations to take a stand."

Piquet is the father of Max Verstappen's partner Kelly Piquet. Until Thursday, neither Hamilton's 2021 title rival or his team had commented on the matter.

On the first day of the British Grand Prix weekend, Verstappen said at Silverstone: "The words used are definitely not correct. I am firmly against racism, and that has nothing to do only with Lewis and F1 but in general.

"For me, everyone is equal and that's how I grew up. A lot is already heading in the right direction in general with the younger generation. And you just have to understand some words cannot be used any more. That's what we have to work on."
