Lewis Hamilton, the five times F1 champion has invited a trouble for him after he called India a poor country. Lewis has left his Indians fans very disappointed and angry after his comment on India.


For your information we should tell you that India has hosted three Grand Prix at the Budh International Circuit since 2011 before parting ways with Formula One.

Lewis Hamilton questioned Formula One’s policy of organising races in new countries like India. He also went ahead and said that he felt incompatible when he visited India for the Indian Grand Prix. He also suggested Formula One to only organise the races in only those countries who have racing culture, rather than experimenting with countries like India.

He said :

I’ve been to India before to a race which was strange because India was such a poor place yet we had this massive, beautiful grand prix track made in the middle of nowhere. I felt very conflicted when I went to that grand prix.”

The Indian fans who were left disappointed took to twitter and slammed the F1 Champion for his remark about India.  Here, have a look at some of the reactions of twitterati on his comment :
