Hamilton calls his hometown a slum.
Nice one Lewis. Way to go.
Instead of bashing and insulting the residents of your hometown why not help them if they need it by using some of your vast untaxed fortune. Setting up a scholarship or a training center wouldn't be that hard to do.https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-bed ... s-46610279
Hamilton called Stevenage a slum on national TV at the SPOTY awards presentations.
During the awards, Hamilton said: "It really was a dream for us all as a family to do something different. For us to get out of the slums."
The remark sparked a backlash and prompted the leader of Stevenage Borough Council to say it was "disappointing" and that people felt "very offended".
Five-time F1 world champion Hamilton took to Instagram to "send a message to the people back in the UK but also to the people of Stevenage".
"I'm super-proud of where I've come from and I hope that you know that I represent in the best way that I can always and nobody's perfect," he said.
