Mercedes driver George Russell was particularly upset about the whole scenario. He spoke recently about a scene at the Canadian Grand Prix, where a fan cheated on him for no reason.

He said, “You are going to a group of different countries with different cultures. Some fans will offer you grace and some fans will not. I saw Matthew Dillner, he sent a tweet this week. He said, ‘when you buy a ticket, you buy the right to boo’. If you’re a professional car racing driver in an elite series like F1, I don’t know how you can get that way if it bothers you. To me, you’re a bit crazy. ”

According to the Majors, it’s completely normal to be booed by fans. The likes of Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin are used to getting it all the time, and they’ve learned to accept it. The Majors also believe Russell may have shot himself in the foot with this type of intrusion. In other words, if people realize that booing is coming at him, the booing will get worse. The majors declared that the fans were like little kids like bullies. If the driver gives any indication that the booing is bothering them it will get worse, so the trick is to ignore it.

He continued, “they [Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin] there is really no choice. If this guy wants to race, h*ll, I’ll let him walk with Bubba for the drivers intro. He could have some real problems, he could walk out with Denny in Martinsville. It took a career in Martinsville and it went from Denny being happy to Denny being booed by his own people. ”
