F1 reporter Jack Plooij made a remarkable statement during an interview with Lando Norris after the Belgian Grand Prix. He called Ocon a "French F...ck" while he wants to introduce a question to Lando Norris about the Frenchman. In the meantime Plooij has offered his apologies.

The pit reporter asked a question to the Mclaren driver, using a term by which he refers to the Frenchman Ocon. Immediately Lando Norris reacts a bit frightened with "Wow" and then looks around in amazement.

The video appears a few days after the Grand Prix at Spa, which was won by Lewis Hamilton. Jack Plooij has apologized via twitter "Both men are top athletes and I never had the intention to hurt or insult them". See the excerpt and the reaction of the Ziggo Sport-pitreporter.
