Does Nicolas Hamilton also get some hate like Lewis Hamilton?

Hamilton Jr also confessed that he also gets some hate, and some people ‘have a go at him’. However, he believes that that is just how the world is. In other words, it doesn’t matter how successful they are, because people will always try and put them down.

He also advised that Lewis Hamilton simply needs to stay true to himself and acknowledge that he is not perfect. However, it is impossible to achieve perfection, especially in the Formula One world. He said, “Everything he does when he walks out of the front door, he can be criticised for it. But he’s learned how to deal with that, he’s become very strong in knowing what is right and what is wrong. I trust and believe in him so much”

“I’m not worried about it, and if people want to put him down for it, that’s their choice. We know who we are and all these guys who wanted to bring negativity on us and our family as a whole. My answer is that they don’t know where we’ve come from to be where we are today, that’s all we need to hear.”

Nic Hamilton concluded, saying that Lewis is racing for himself and wasn’t expecting the fame. That is the price of fame and it comes with the territory.
