Toto Wolff describes horrific racism that left “big scars” on Lewis Hamilton.

Last season, LEWIS HAMILTON missed out on a record-tying eighth Formula One championship.

According to Toto Wolff, Lewis Hamilton was “insulted” as a child while racing go-karts because of his skin color.

Hamilton’s childhood racism, according to Mercedes’ CEO, has left an indelible mark on him.

Hamilton finished second in the season-ending Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi in December, missing out on a record eighth Formula One championship.

Before a safety car was deployed after Williams’ Nicholas Latifi collided with a wall, the Briton appeared to be on his way to winning the race.

Max Verstappen took advantage of the opportunity to pit for new tyres, while Hamilton was unable to do so without jeopardizing his position on the track.

Race director Michael Masi allowed five cars sandwiched between Hamilton and his title rival to unlap themselves and move out of the way as the Grand Prix was about to restart.

As the race resumed, Verstappen caught up to the Briton and used his fresh tyres to storm to victory.

Since having his championship snatched away from him, the Mercedes driver has remained silent, and the events in the desert have had a significant impact.

Hamilton has even been rumored to be considering retirement from the sport.

However, Wolff insists that the 37-year-old is mentally resilient, citing Hamilton’s shocking childhood treatment.

Wolff told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, “He was insulted on the go-kart track as a child.”

“White parents forbade their children from interacting with him, which left big scars on him as well.”

“Racing was, and continues to be, the valve for him to show everyone.”

Hamilton was knighted at Windsor Castle just days after his desert disappointment.

At the ceremony, he was accompanied by his mother, Carmen Lockhart, and he was all smiles as he was honored by the Prince of Wales.

Hamilton is only the fourth Grand Prix driver to receive the award, joining Sir Jack Brabham, Sir Stirling Moss, and Sir Jackie Stewart.

The Mercedes driver was the first to be knighted while competing.

Hamilton was knighted for his contributions to motorsport.

Throughout his career, however, he has made a name for himself off the track.
