Lewis Hamilton was outraged in his Instagram post by posting that the organizers and management of the Belgian Grand Prix should have stopped the race and refunded people’s money for the safety of the Formula 1 drivers.
He said that there was no moment that Formula 1 drivers would have been able to race properly. Although he agreed to the conditions to hold the race, he sees no point in resending the cars from racing because the weather condition has not improved. At the same time, it would be difficult for F1 drivers to race in a high-speed track with poor visibility.
Even after his complaints, FIA rejected his claims, telling him that drivers can still race despite the weather condition. Michael Masi, the race director, had spoken that they have sent out the cars for the last time to check what the conditions were like.
Hamilton reminisces the Australian Grand Prix’s cancellation due to the coronavirus pandemic. Hours before the AGP got canceled, he expressed his sentiment on social media that AGP was still holding the race. When curious fans asked why, he only replied, “Cash is King.”
Hamilton is concerned about the fans’ money, that the Belgian Grand Prix should have refunded them instead of giving them a bad show during a bad weather condition. Zak Brown, the CEO of McLaren Racing, said that F1 should review the situation, as they should create a better solution for the sport.
