What did Max Verstappen say about Nelson Piquet’s racism storm?

After details emerged that Nelson Piquet used a racial slur against Lewis Hamilton following the Mercedes driver’s crash with Verstappen at the 2021 British Grand Prix, he has been banned from the paddock for this year’s Silverstone GP.

However, Verstappen criticized the decision to ban him, saying he didn’t think Piquet Sr. was a racist.

He commented: “Everyone is against racism and I think that’s very direct. The wording used was incorrect.

“But I’ve spent a little bit of time with Nelson, more than average, and he’s definitely not a racist. He’s actually a really nice, laid-back guy.

“It’s not about the N-word, it’s about the use of offensive language in general. But he doesn’t need me to tell him what’s right and what’s not. He said in his statement that he used the wrong words.

“It can be interpreted in two ways, people pick up on the bad side, and then of course it gets really exaggerated.

“It’s better to open a conversation than block it. If you block people, you’re not even helping the situation.

“You do not speak. You have to communicate and communication is really important. You’re trying to enlighten people, so it’s better to have a chat and these things can be easily resolved.

“If you’re arguing and insulting someone, talk, apologize. It’s exactly the same with that.

“Things can easily be forgotten – as long as you learn from your mistakes and the word you used. I don’t think you should be banned from the paddock. Especially not as a three-time world champion.”
