Max Verstappen was left in complete disbelief after seeing the shocking video of fans showing Lewis Hamilton’s merchandise being burned during the Hungarian Grand Prix.

On Friday, a video went viral on social media in which a certain Max Verstappen fan was seen burning a Mercedes cap in the stands and the 2021 world champion didn’t take it well.

The shocking moment was caught on camera and while Verstappen dismissed the actions, he said: “This is of course unacceptable.”

I mean, these people… No, I definitely don’t agree with that because it’s just gross.”

But overall I think the majority of the fans who cheered a lot too, I think throughout the race and also on the podium for every rider, I think that’s the way it should be.

And yes, I find these videos or videos of burning merch disgusting.”

The Hungary incident is just one of many that have transpired this season and no one can forget the disturbing scenes that were witnessed during Red Bull’s home Grand Prix in Austria.

In light of the behavior shown by some fans this season, F1 recently came up with the Drive it Out campaign to show their displeasure at all forms of abuse.

F1 has released a video message featuring all 20 drivers as well as F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali and FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.

In addition, F1 has said in a public statement: “We are all sending a clear message that this is unacceptable and must end – and those who continue to spread abuse and offensive comments are not welcome in our sport.”

Just like most sane fans of the sport, F1 drivers are not happy with the situation and have asked the FIA ​​to impose lifetime bans on spectators who seek to spread abuse.

Sergio Perez said while speaking about it: “They don’t represent us as a sport, they don’t share our values ​​and they’re not welcome here. As simple as that.”

Toto Wolff also vented his displeasure and asked the offending fans to fuck off.

All we have to do is target these guys and pick them out and say “you.” That’s what Formula 1 said and we said that if possible you have to report to security.”

And whoever reads my sentence: stay away, we don’t want you if you belong to this group.”

In addition, Sebastian Vettel said: “Whoever these people are, they should be ashamed and banned from racing events for life.”

I think there should be zero tolerance. If people are having fun and drinking too much, that’s fine, but it doesn’t justify or excuse wrongdoing. We ride as a unit, so the fans are a part of it.”

Formula 1 has become extremely toxic since last year’s nail-biting battle between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen as hatred among fans reached levels never before seen in the sport in 2021.

After looking at what has happened so far this season, it seems that fans have become more and more heedless of people’s feelings and the way things are happening. It will continue unless F1 takes definitive steps that would force fans to think twice before doing something that is unethical.
