Lewis HamiltonThe racial abuse suffered by Lewis Hamilton during the latest testing session at Barcelona’s Circuit last week, wasn’t an isolated incident. This is what Lewis Hamilton’s father, Anthony, reported to the authorities, who said that his son was abused by Spanish supporters who traveled to support Fernando Alonso at the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai last October.

Max Mosley, FIA’s President, told to the Sunday Times: “Anthony Hamilton told me that there were some people in China who were also appallingly abusive; not Chinese fans, but people who had travelled from Spain. If they went to Australia and did something like that, they could get arrested and we would know their names, and passport numbers, and they wouldn’t get into another country. We will do everything we can to stamp this out, we will do whatever it takes. If, as appears to be the case, only a very small number of people are involved, it ought to be possible to stop it immediately. If it isn’t, then we have sanctions and we could pull the Grand Prix.”
