Lewis Hamilton it is a sounding board of considerable size, and a statement from it has the potential to change the agenda not only of Formula 1 but also of other fields. He is a universal character, and if he exposes himself to social issues, politics raises its antennas and responds to him. The seven-time world champion spoke in Hungary, an illiberal democracy that has entered the war with the European Union over civil rights. An anti-LGBTQ law openly contested by Brussels is in force in the Hungarian country, so Prime Minister Viktor Orban has called for a referendum to seek the support of his people regarding the rule. Hamilton encouraged the Magyars to vote against their premier, and Justice Minister Judit Varga accused him of meddling in Hungarian politics.
“It is sad to see that Hamilton is also joining the camp of international fake news producers by attacking our child protection law“, That’s what Hungarian propaganda called it. “Our law does nothing but give parents the power to protect their children from LGBT indoctrination. I suggest Hamilton to read the Hungarian Child Protection Act. And then, just as the shoemaker should limit himself to making shoes, a Formula 1 driver should just drive“.
