At the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, fans shared a video on Tate’s Instagram and YouTube. The internet celebrity stood on the edge of the track balcony, eyes fixed on his phone. F1 stars like Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen drive past him, but he deliberately doesn’t look at them.
Many fans in the comments sections of these posts are actually confused as to why someone like him would race in F1 in the first place, especially since he hasn’t shown any interest.

Andrew Tate disrespects Lewis Hamilton being short and vegan
This is not the first time Tate’s behavior in the F1 world has offended fans of the sport. Earlier this year, a video emerged of him at the Yas Marina circuit in which he disrespected Hamilton and crossed several lines in doing so.
Tate and his entourage made fun of Hamilton’s 5ft 8 height and insulted him for being a vegetarian. On top of that, he baffled fans by suggesting that driving an F1 car was “very easy”. He was adamant that it would be easy to beat Hamilton in motorsport, something most fans would find laughable.
“If Lewis Hamilton gets off,” Tristan Tate began. “And I had to fight him over his car, he’s just that tall.”
However, the 36-year-old crossed the line when he made digs at Hamilton’s private life. They mentioned his ex-partner Nicole Scherzinger by name and made jokes about their relationship, with the latter in particular being targeted.
However, Hamilton did not respond to any of these comments from Tate and may have chosen to ignore them.
