English Formula 1 driver lewis hamiltonassures that the already retired Sebastian Vettel told him that “in some teams they spoke racist things” about himand that the German was one of those who "supported" him the most, while he practically ruled out re-forming a couple with the Spanish Fernando Alonso.

The Mercedes driver declared in True Driverprogram about F1 broadcast by the platform DAZN.

We have to get people to empathize, we need empathy. Sometimes I wonder, does anyone else care? Sebastian was one of those who supported me the most. He told me that some teams were talking racist things about me.

He got down on one knee with me in 2020, I have yet to see a rider as brave as him. Laws must be changed so that people live better. We are risking our lives to try to educate others.

On the possibility of winning the eighth title, the English pilot did not hide that it is something that he has in his sights.

I'm completely focused on it and I don't want any distractions. I want to win the eighth title.

Hamilton warned that his title record is not in danger against the Dutchman Max Verstappen and confessed that he has found in Fernando Alonso one of the biggest rivals of his entire career, although he sees it as difficult to form a team as in the turbulent 2007 at McLaren. "If the stars align, yes, but I don't think it will happen," he settled.
