Lewis Hamilton says it was ‘awkward’ being booed at Mexico GP amid Red Bull cost cap breach – but is defended by Perez

LEWIS HAMILTON has admitted that it was “awkward” being booed at the Mexican Grand Prix. He was defended by home hero Sergio Perez who tried desperately to urge his countrymen and women to stop booing. Max Verstappen and Perez found themselves on the receiving end of boos at the US Grand Prix last week. “I was so close [to Verstappen] in that first stint but I think the Red Bull was clearly too fast and ultimately they had the better tyre strategy. “I’m not sure the hard tyre was the right tyre at the end. After weeks of tension, Red Bull were punished for breaching F1’s cost cap which has reignited unease over Verstappen’s title win last season.
