Lewis Hamilton has “great respect” for Tyson Fury, despite tax comments – Motorsports

Lewis Hamilton praised Tyson Fury for defeating Deontay Wilder and said he respected fellow Brit “no matter what he said about me.”

Fury held the WBC Heavyweight Championship against Wilder on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Fury is one of Britain’s most famous active athletes, but was not on Queen Elizabeth II’s New Year’s honor list last year.

His official title was Sir Lewis Hamilton MBE, including Hamilton, who won his seventh championship and surpassed Michael Schumacher’s 91 race win record last year.

Fury was critical of his dropout and swiped Hamilton’s Knights in an interview with Email Online.

“Unlike Lewis Hamilton, I live and pay £ 9 million in taxes last year,” Fury said in an interview.

On Monday, Fury’s favorite Hamilton spoke out about the importance of mental health awareness. On his Instagram, “Fury cannot be denied.

“He has overcome all the lows to stay on top. Whatever he says about me, I have great respect for his work and commitment and the sacrifice needed to be number one. I have.

“Congratulations, congratulations to you and your family. Enjoy this time, you have won it.”

Hamilton’s tax status has been a source of long-standing controversy and scrutiny in the United Kingdom. The seven-time world champion lives in tax havens Monaco.

Hamilton told The Sunday Times in 2014: “What people aren’t aware of is that I’m paying taxes here. [in the UK], But I don’t make all the money here.

“I’m racing in 19 countries, so I make money in 20 countries and pay taxes in several places. Again, I’m paying a lot.

“I’m contributing to the country and not only helping to keep hiring a team of over 1,000 people.”
