Oct.31 (GMM) F1's governing body, and the McLaren team, have condemned a new wave of racism against championship challenger Lewis Hamilton.
A Spanish website, whose name will not receive publicity in this news item, included a game inviting visitors to leave virtual nails and hazards on a mock-up of the Interlagos circuit, scene of Sunday's title showdown.Thousands of visitors to the site left vile and racist messages for the 23-year-old Briton, who earlier this year was subject to taunts and abuse at a test in Barcelona."The FIA's position is very clear," a spokesman for the Paris based body said in response."Discrimination and prejudice can have no place in sport or society. Everyone in our sport will join us in condemning these abusive and hateful comments."A McLaren spokesman added: "We've seen today's statement from an FIA spokesman, and we can only echo it."
