Jeremy Clarkson’s Small Dig At Lewis Hamilton Came True In Latest Formula 1 Race

Previously, Jeremy Clarkson hasn’t exactly been subtle when he’s spoken out against Lewis Hamilton. Last weekend, before the final showdown between Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen and the British champion, The Grand Tour presenter wished both racing drivers well before the race. But he couldn’t resist a slight dig at Hamilton, who he’s interviewed numerous times on Top Gear.

Calling the racing driver “woke”, and often calling out his “right-on” tweets, Jeremy wrote about him in his column for The Sun.

He wrote:

“Tomorrow, after one of the most exciting Formula One seasons ever is over, either Lewis Hamilton or Max Verstappen will be crowned World Champion.

“Both are brilliant drivers and I want to wish them both the best of luck.

He added quickly:

“But I hope the luck Max has is a little bit better than the luck Lewis has.”

In the past, Jeremy has had a lot of respect for Lewis, but more recently he’s often spoken out about how he disagrees with his behaviour off of the race track. Writing in a previous column, he explains why he dislikes the driver:

“The problem is that Lewis has changed,” he penned. “But then he decided to go woke and right-on and more politically correct than a student union AGM.”

Adding that he urges “everyone to be vegetarian”, he says:

“All this might work well on social media but in the real world, where people live, it doesn’t work at all.

“They get Lewis to be a mouthpiece thinking he’ll convert the rest of us.

“But instead, we all just want to throw something at him.”

Max Verstappen took home the glory on Sunday, with Lewis in a controversial second place. There will be more updates to come as Mercedes protests the epic conclusion.
