Nelson Piquet also plotted against Rosberg: “nonsense” / Formula 1

Three-time Formula 1 champion Nelson Piquet not only made a poor choice of words when talking about Lewis Hamilton, he also made derogatory remarks about the race drivers Keke and Nico Rosberg.

The statements of former Formula 1 star Nelson Piquet still give a lot to talk about here in Silverstone. The British Race Drivers Club (BRDC), the owners of the traditional Silverstone race, have revoked the Brazilian’s honorable membership. The FIA ​​has not confirmed that Piquet received a paddock ban following his derogatory remarks about Lewis Hamilton. That is the issue of Formula 1, not the issue of the World Automotive Sports Association, it said on request. It will be the first time a Formula 1 world champion has been denied access to a paddock.

Lewis Hamilton is not the only driver insulted by 69-year-old Piquet during the November 2021 “Motorsports Talk” episode. In this show, the 23-time GP Piquet winner described his former rival Keke Rosberg as “worthless”, and he went even better: Keke’s son Nico Rosberg has been a Mercedes world champion since 2016 because Hamilton was so bad that season and in practice. he gave her, Nico, a butt – words of homosexual hatred without fault.

Martin Brundle was also shocked by the Brazilian’s statement. From the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, the Englishman drove against Piquet in the first grade. “I have known him for forty years,” says a British Sky GP specialist. “He has always been a good comedian, with sarcastic remarks about Nigel Mansell’s wife or Ayrton Senna.”

At the time, Piquet described his Williams keeper Nigel Mansell as uneducated, his wife as ugly, and also told Enzo Ferrari: “He’s old.”

What Martin Brundle doesn’t understand: “Why would Nelson say that to the world? I am saddened by Nelson’s feeling of the need to express himself. “
