But Piquet said he “strongly condemns” suggestions he racially abused Hamilton. “I would never use the word I have been accused of in some translations. Hamilton, 37, wrote on social media in response to Piquet’s vile slur: “It’s more than language. Piquet is said to have been discussing a collision at Silverstone in 2021 between Hamilton and Max Verstappen, who dates Piquet’s daughter, Kelly.
