JONATHAN McEVOY: Sneering Nelson Piquet will think his racist slur towards Lewis Hamilton is funny… that sums up the Brazilian, whose previous form for the personal insult is well-developed

The cleverest man in the room and the most cutting and pleased to be so. And if there is any consolation for Hamilton as he feels gratuitously abused, it is that there was not a word of support for Piquet from the motor racing world, just condemnation. ‘I remember some years ago I got on an aeroplane and Nelson saw me and said, ‘I didn’t know you were still alive’. Piquet was around a bit more when his son, Nelson Jnr, was writing his own chapter of infamy. Piquet Jnr, fearing for his future at the team a year later, spilled the beans. Secondly, I have not heard any language used or views expressed that would chime with the Piquet view in the last 10 years.
