Lewis Hamilton, five times world champion of Formula 1, he had to clarify this Thursday the comments that you made about how you felt when it took the Indian GP after the criticisms received. The Mercedes driver had said this week, speaking about new places such as Vietnam for tests of F1, that you wish there were more great prizes in places with "real history" automotive industries as Europe and the united States.

"I've been in Vietnam before and it is beautiful," said Hamilton to the BBC. "I was previously in India in a career that was strange, because India is a place very poor but we had this great track for a Great Prize in the middle of nowhere. I felt very upset when I went to that Grand Prix," added the respect.

The british, 33 years old, qualified on Thursday via their social networks, these comments having been criticized. "My reference was that a Grand Prix there, it was strange to leave people homeless and coming to a great venue where the money was not a problem," she explained on Instagram and Twitter. "They spent hundreds of millions on that track which now is never used. That money could have been spent on schools or homes for the needy," said Hamilton about it.

India, the second most populous nation in the world after China, hosted between 2011 and 2013, three major awards in the circuit Buddh International, Greater Noida, south of the capital New Delhi. And the three races were won by the German pilot Sebastian Vettel.
