Lewis Hamilton target of more racist abuse
Lewis Hamilton has been unfazed by the taunts
Offensive messages have been posted on Spanish sport sites 20 Minutos and Marca.
The abuse was triggered by reports that the Formula 1 champion is planning a trip into space with girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger, 30, and 3 family members.
Lewis, 23, is said to have forked out £625,000 to secure seats on Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic airline, reports Metro.
The racing driver was subjected to racist chants as he tested his car in Barcelona in February and website Burst Hamilton’s Tyres was launched before the Brazilian Grand Prix in November.
