LEWIS HAMILTON was loudly booed by fans at the Hungarian Grand Prix after clinching pole position.
los British driver led a Mercedes 1-2 with title rival Max Verstappen back in third.
Pero F1 fans in attendance were in no mood to congratulate the seven-time world champ.
As he stepped up to conduct his post-qualifying interview, deafening boos rang out from the fans.
The interviewer called on them to stop.
He pleaded: “Whoa, whoa, whoa people, enough of that. Enough of that.”
Pero Hamilton shrugged them off, saying they ‘fuelled’ él.
The 36-year-old said: “I’ve never actually felt so great with the booing. If anything, it just fuels me. I don’t really mind it.”
It was unclear exactly why those in attendance booed.
During the top 10 tiroteo, Hamilton slowed on the outlap to such an extent that only three drivers were able to have a final shot at securing a faster lap, a tactic that may have irked those hoping to witness a thrilling finish.
It was clear there was a large Verstappen fan base in attendance, with many wearing orange in support of the Dutchman.

“I hope the weather is good for everyone, enjoy the sun and stay safe.”
