Sebastian Vettel erected signs for tolerance and human rights orally and externally at the Hungarian Grand Prix. The fact that he wore a T-shirt with the words “same love” for the Hungarian anthem before the Formula 1 race has consequences. He received a warning from the track, which, along with two more warnings for misconduct on the track, could lead to a fine for the starting point.
In the evening, in Batak on Hungaroring, Racing Director Michael Masi explained that the drivers had the opportunity to show their support for the official Formula 1 campaign “we are competing together” before the start. Masi stressed that drivers should respect the host’s anthem by wearing their racing suits. “It’s been like that in many cases. This is the first time it’s happening now. Sebastian is not alone.”

It was a small sign of support, the cut-off insisted and even initially expected a fine. It’s a shame there’s still a problem with that, he told broadcaster Sky. Like superstar Louis Hamilton, 36, the 34-year-old born in Hephenheim had taken a clear stand just days before the planned referendum on the rights of transgender people (LGBT) in Hungary.
“It’s a disgrace to the country,” Vettel told a news conference Thursday. He could not understand why the government was struggling to live as freely as the people wanted.
The prediction that “we should all leave the planet from time to time” is good, and Vettel discovered the skepticism of his T-shirt campaign on Sunday. (dpa)
