Marshal ousted for Gros’ misjudgment over Lewis
An F1 marshal who ‘hoped’ Lewis Hamilton would suffer a violent accident similar to Romain Grosjean has been forced out of the Saudi Arabian GP, written BBEN HUNT.
A dizzying development that will only exacerbate tensions around this race plunged into doubt by a missile attack against a nearby fuel depot.
Posting to Twitter as @Heem4U, he replied to an image of Hamilton and wrote in Arabic: “I hope he has an accident like a Roman (sic) accident in Bahrain.”
Gorsjean suffered a massive 2020 smash in Bahrain where his Haas caught fire and was lucky to be pulled from the wreckage.
SunSport reported the issue to the FIA and organisers, who say the man “has been relieved of his duties”.
Images from the Twitter account showed videos of an AlphaTauri pit stop and a photo of the F1 trophies.
In another Arabic post describing Hamilton’s desire to help change human rights in Saudi Arabia, the same account replies, “Saudi authorities don’t answer dogs.
“If a person had seen him, they would have replied to him.”
He has since apologized to Hamilton and tweeted again in Arabic, announcing he was quitting the race.
