THE BALL – Hamilton and four other drivers did not want the Saudi Arabian GP (Formula 1) to take place

Despite the statement issued yesterday by the Formula 1 drivers’ association, confirming the qualification and the race of the Saudi Arabian GP, ​​some had another idea in mind. Lewis Hamilton was one of them…

After the missile attack on a refinery just 18 kilometers from the Jeddah circuit as free practice took place on Friday, the Mercedes man suggested a four-hour boycott of the test at the drivers’ meeting . The Englishman’s position was shared by Fernando Alonso (Alpine), George Russell (Mercedes), Pierre Gasly and Lance Stroll.

Thus, the action of a Saudi delegation was fundamental, which tried to convince this quintet that all the security conditions for the competition were met. The exchange of arguments was long, but the holding of the Saudi Arabian GP ended up being confirmed.
