Grenfell Tower: Hamilton says F1 deal with firm nothing to do with him

Lewis Hamilton has said a partnership deal between his Formula 1 team Mercedes and Kingspan – an insulation firm linked to Grenfell Tower – is “nothing to do” with him. Kingspan’s logo appeared on Hamilton’s car for the first time on Saturday. Survivors of the fire, which killed 72 people, and Housing Secretary Michael Gove criticised Mercedes for the deal. He said: “It is really nothing to do with me and I know Toto (Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff) is sorting it.”. Grenfell United, a group of survivors and bereaved families from the fire, this week called the sponsorship “truly shocking” and urged Mercedes to end the deal immediately. Kingspan’s K15 insulation was one of the products installed on Grenfell Tower during its refurbishment.
