Five times Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has clarified comments about how he had felt torn to be racing in ‘poor’ India during the years when the country hosted a grand prix.
The Mercedes driver had said this week, in discussing new venues like Vietnam, that he would like more grands prix in places with ‘real racing history’ such as Europe and the United States.
“I’ve been to Vietnam before and it is beautiful,” he had told the BBC.
“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 33-year-old Briton took to social media on Thursday, saying he had noticed some people had been upset by his comments.
