Formula 1 managing director Ross Brawn was disappointed to hear booing during the Hungarian Grand Prix which appeared to be predominantly aimed at Lewis Hamilton.
When speaking directly after qualifying and the race, Hamilton was booed by fans which he claims actually fuels him. Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas believe it's not correct for spectators to boo the drivers.
"The Covid challenge has continued longer than any of us anticipated," wrote in his column for F1. "It is something the world hasn’t been through in our lifetime and so we didn’t know how things would evolve.
"In some ways, this year has been as tough and some aspects have been even tougher than last season. It’s great to see fans back at races. It makes a wonderful difference to the event, to have the enthusiasm and noise. I was however disappointed to hear booing – that has no place in our sport."
Brawn feels that F1 should be proud of what it has achieved this year as some events have had capacity crowds for the first time in two years. He paid tribute to everyone in the sport who has helped get F1 back to some normality.
"It has been a very challenging first six months of the season, but everyone involved in F1 has had the discipline, protocol and mindset to make these things work," said Brawn. "So I just want to thank everyone from F1 and the FIA, to the teams and promoters for their commitment to allow us to run safe events around the world.
