F1 VIP clears air with Hamilton

Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone says he has cleared the air with Lewis Hamilton after seeming to make light of racist abuse aimed at the Briton."What happened in Spain because of those four guys, I'm sorry, but it hardly represents a nation of racists."I've seen some people having a pop at Bernie for trying to play it down, but what would you expect him to do? He is the ringmaster, the guy that has created this amazing foundation of business success that enables all of us to earn our pennies."We're all talking about Lewis being the first billion dollar sportsman, well that is on the foundations of what Bernie has created. To turn round and try to get Bernie to offer an apology to Lewis is just ridiculous."F1 may have many failings, but it does not come close to the racism you see in people's first love, and that's football."
