(CNN)It was another turbulent week in F1.
Returning to the circuit, preparing for this year's British Grand Prix on Sunday was former F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso, but questions about the race had to sit in the backseat.
F1, Hamilton's Team Mercedes, and the FIA, the governing body of motorsport, accused Pique of using racist terms on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Hamilton, who won the most races in F1 history, said that racism was "the time for action" and commented on Pique in a series of Twitter posts. In response, he wrote as follows. Vamos focar em mudaramentalidade "-" Focus on changing your mind "in Portuguese.
He states: It was a synonym for "man" or "person" and was not intended to be offensive.
"We never use the words criticized in some translations. Alonso told CNN Sport that he and his Alpine team were" standing with Lewis. " In recent years, his team has undergone "major changes" to make it more comprehensive.
"I agree with what the FIA or FOM does, but I think it needs to be done. There are some actions. In another episode, there are no actions. I don't think it's enough. I think we need to stay away from these people. This is a perfect example. "
The 21-year-old Estonian was released from the obligations of all teams on June 21, and after the incident, Vips apologized and acknowledged the language used. His personal Instagram account post was "totally unacceptable".
Alonso told CNN that there have been many positive changes in sport during the 21 years in the paddock.
"Many women currently working on the team, many talented designers and mechanics, and we have all sorts of people who love to have them," he says. I did.
"We love to share teams with them, and this is, as I said, a sport that should set an example for our world."
"I think I'm a little more competitive this year, so I'm more confident," said the Spaniards.
Alonso started in the front row for the first time in 10 years and then finished 9th at the Canadian Grand Prix last week.
He told CNN that he was "feeling good." "It was a very special moment because after returning to Formula One, we don't have to prove things, but it's a lot of dedication and sacrifice to go back to Formula and shape it again. At the age of 40. And when you get good results, it's somehow [a] reassurance and proof that you're working very hard to get those results. "
Almost Alonso doesn't like to lose, like his athlete, but he's the second stint of sports that changed his perspective between him.
"Over time, I realize that I need a package to win in F1. One day, I'm not just getting some weird inspiration and delivering some magic." He said.
"In F1, there isn't much magic. You need the right car and the right day to do it, so I'm trying to build that car that can win that package in Alpine. Yes, but I enjoy the process of doing it. That's not the frustration that's why you can't win.
"I can't win. Yeah, sure. But lucky. Especially, this time I took a break in Formula One and tried various categories such as Le Mans 24-hour race, Indy Car, Dakar, Daytona etc. with durability. I felt victory again in all these categories. I was on the podium, and I think that was enough to reset these winning needs.}
