Shame on the Monza GP, Verstappen fans harassed by two Italians: “Here only Ferrari”

The ‘fault’ of that portion of spectators is rooting for the Red Bull driver. Just take a look at a video shared on social media: the accompanying images and words describe that scene so absurd and unacceptable.

On the stands of the Monza racetrack fans of Max Verstappen are harassed by some supporters of Ferrari. Because? They wear a cap dedicated to the Dutch Red Bull driver.

Monza. The wait for the Grand Prix rises. There Ferrari starts in pole position with Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz is at the end of the grid for that ugly mess of penalties that involved 9 riders including Max Verstappen (seventh, in the fourth row). Now or never, this could be the day (finally) to be dyed red in the centenary of the racetrack that has put on the right suit for the occasion. The public has been in the stands since the morning.

The green light turns on at 3 pm but the people of Maranello are already there, filling the seats, enjoying that count-down in the hope that Sunday will be a triumphal one for the Cavallino. At least there. At least on that historical track. At least today. Erasing the ugliness and distortions of the past few weeks. There is no need to go back in time… what happened in Belgium (due to the disaster that occurred in the pits during the tire change operations) is a fresh wound. To heal her (and soothe her pain) a perfect race would be enough, with a victory and (maybe) a sensational and exciting comeback from the Spaniard.

To heal some people from the disease of stupidity, however, it seems that the best cure has not yet been found. A blameworthy episode marred the long morning towards the Grand Prix. An act of intolerance that a user shared on social networks even calling into question the leaders of the Monza racetrack. What happened that was so bad that it was called an “act of bullying?”.

Just take a look at the video posted through the Twitter account. The accompanying images and words describe that scene so absurd, out of this world, unacceptable and shameful. A sad script, one of those that are played off the cuff in Italian stadiums where a child who cheers for a team other than the home team – as happened in Florence, on the occasion of the match between Viola and Napoli – to feel comfortable ” “is forced to wear the shirt of his favorite team inside out.

“We do not accept bullies in our sport – reads the user comment -. These men harass / mistreat anyone who wears Max Verstappen hats until they decide to take it off. There is not even an official / agent around. security to report it to. Send them away now. “

The ‘fault’ of that portion of spectators is rooting for the Red Bull driver. A ‘fault’ that a couple of people feel they have to punish by abandoning their post, taking the trouble to approach and order them to lay down anything that refers to the Dutchman who has the World title in hand. In the clip you can see how they first glimpse Verstappen fans in the distance and then go in front of them to invite them to respect ‘their law’. “Here only Ferrari”, intimidate while on the stands there are also those who insult the driver with offensive chants targeting his mother and family. This also happens: “Bad behavior of some fans in Monza. This is not Formula 1”exclaims another user. For better or for worse, the whole world is a country.
