FANS have claimed that Lewis Hamilton was trolled by a brutal graphic during his disappointing outing at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

It was another nightmare display from the Mercedes driver who finished 13th in Sunday's race, which was won by his Red Bull rival Max Verstappen.

After finishing third in the 2022 season opener in Bahrain, he then finished tenth in Saudi Arabia before coming home in fourth in Australia last time out.

His horror show in Imola has left him in seventh place in the F1 standings, with the British legend a whopping 58 points behind leader Charles Leclerc.

To make matters worse worse for Hamilton, he was lapped by Dutch star Verstappen in lap 41.

And prior to letting the 24-year-old pass him, a graphic appeared on Sky Sports F1's broadcast of the race unjustly showing the gap between the two.

Hamilton, who is part of Sir Martin Broughton's consortium to buy Chelsea, was not in contention to pose a threat in the race in lap 39.

Still, F1 decided to show that Verstappen was leading him by over 77 seconds.

Sharing a snap of the visual, one Twitter user posted: "F1 CHOSE VIOLENCE WITH THIS GRAPHIC."

Responding to the tweet, another fan replied: "Yeah that’s kinda rough. really necessary F1?"
