Osaka this week attracted strong criticism for her decision to withdraw – criticism Hamilton has now condemned, saying he especially condemned the actions by officials from a position of understanding what it’s like to compete internationally at such a young age.
Hamilton said the backlash suffered by Osaka was ridiculous and that people should taking into account that she’s a human being and that she’s simply not well enough to do what organisers were expecting of her. He added that the 23-year-old is an exceptional athlete and human being and that her activism all throughout the unsavoury situation has had a massive impact on the sporting world.
The F1 champion blasted officials for having fined someone for talking about their state of mental health and well-being, saying that this was unacceptable behaviour on their part.
Roland Garros Grand Slam officials have since big backlash made a promise to bring about the necessary changes regarding how players experience the media.
