Latifi recounts her ordeal after losing the World Cup to Lewis Hamilton

Nicholas Latifi was, unintentionally, the great protagonist of the last race of the Formula 1 World Championship. The Canadian suffered an accident seven laps from the end that changed the outcome of the championship by raising Max Verstappen as champion and Lewis Hamilton as second when it seemed impossible before its collision with the wall.

I’m going to speak my mind in the hope that this sparks another conversation about online bullying and the drastic consequences it can have on people. Using social networks as a channel to attack someone with messages of hate, abuse and threats of violence is shocking, and something that I am denouncing, “he settled.
