Who Is Rodrigo Piquet?

Rodrigo Piquet becomes the target of criticism for showing support for his relative's racist language. The whole F1 community, except for Red Bull, stood up to denounce the reportedly racist remarks made by Nelson Piquet toward Lewis Hamilton.

After the British driver collided with Max Verstappen at Silverstone last year, the former F1 champion allegedly referred to the driver as "a little black guy." 

Although he said so during an interview in November, the issue came to light recently. Hamilton himself tweeted about how it was not a matter of language but mindset. He also noted that this kind of mindset needed to be changed.

According to AutoSport.com, Hamilton has been one of those drivers on the frontline to bring about change in the world of motorsport. He is the only Black driver competing in F1 and the only Black world champion.

Even when the death of George Floyd in 2020 became a global issue, Hamilton was a prominent figure in F1, promoting an anti-racism message and taking initiatives to increase diversity and inclusion in the sport.

The Hamilton Commission was founded by Hamilton, and it released a report on the representation of Black people in motorsport. It was discovered that only 1% of F1 staff were of Black descent.
