F1 Marshal REMOVED From Saudi GP Over Vile Tweet 'Hoping' Lewis Hamilton Suffered Fireball Crash

An F1 marshal has been REMOVED from his post after he 'hoped' Lewis Hamilton would suffer a fireball crash at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

This weekend's race has already been under scrutiny due to the security concerns following a missile attack near the Jeddah track.

The Saudi Arabian GP has now LOST a marshal following a sick taunt aimed at Hamilton on social media.

According to The Sun, Twitter user @Heem4U replied to an image of the British racer and wrote in Arabic: "I hope he has an accident like Roman (sic) accident in Bahrain."

Romain Grosjean suffered a scary crash at the Bahrain Grand Prix in 2020 in an incident that sent shockwaves through the track and through F1 fans across the world.

The Sun raised the social media post to the FIA, with organisers 'removing' the man from his post.

Images from the account showed videos of an AlphaTauri pitstop and a photo of the F1 trophies.

The same account also slammed Hamilton's desire to help change the country's human rights issues.

In another message in Arabic, he wrote: "The Saudi authorities do not respond to dogs.

"If a person saw him, they would have responded to him."

He has since apologised to the Mercedes driver and announced he was leaving the race.

"I offer my apologies to the Saudi Motorsports and Motorcycle Federation," he wrote. "And for driver Lewis Hamilton.

"On my previous tweet, I announced (sic) my withdrawal from the ring [race]."
