Lewis Hamilton blasted as Bernie Ecclestone tells F1 star to ignore skin colour in rant

Ecclestone also said he once stepped in after seeing a black person attacked by a white driver and was “semi-arrested” by police as a consequence.

“As for my feelings for our black society, I pulled F1 out of South Africa after a white South African killed a black journalist because of his comments,” said Ecclestone.

“At a race weekend, I was given a car and a driver to use. I was in the car with Jochen Rindt, the F1 driver, on the way to the race track. A black person was walking in the road and the white driver opened the car window and, with a cane, hit the black person and made him walk on the side of the road.

“I shouted to the driver to stop the car. Jochen and I pulled the driver out and put the black person in the car and drove to where it was OK for our new passenger to get out safely. I was semi-arrested by the police. I explained the facts of life to them, which they didn’t want to understand. That is how it was. I had many other incidents like this. Life isn’t fair. We need to educate a younger generation.”
