Furious Lewis Hamilton accuses Formula One bosses of putting money before fans and demands supporters are given a refund following ‘farce’ Belgian Grand Prix… which was curtailed after just two laps after delay of nearly four HOURS

Lewis Hamilton accused Formula One bosses of putting money first and called on them to refund fans who sat drenched through a ‘farcical’ Belgian Grand Prix. The seven-time world champion was furious after the sport staged just the mandatory two laps required for a race to stand after nearly four hours of dithering in the rain. Hamilton, who finished third in the non-event won by his title rival Max Verstappen, said: ‘Today was a farce and the only people to lose out are the fans who have paid good money to watch us race. Two laps behind a safety car where there is no possibility to gain or lose a place is not racing. There is a rule that says for it to be a legal race there has to be a minimum of two laps. I don’t know if us doing those two laps means they don’t.
