The British pilot of the Mercedes team, Lewis Hamilton, expressed the hope that all Formula 1 riders will stand on one knee at the last start of the season as a sign of the fight against racism.
“I think the organizers need to do more. Before the last race there was a confusion: we got out of the cars, quickly ran across and quickly knelt. They talk about the fight against inequality, but they do not give us the opportunity to do anything, “- quoted by Hamilton RaceFans.
According to him, he spent a lot of effort on convincing some pilots to kneel, he also emphasized that everyone who does this understands the importance of the action.
“I dream that at the last race all the pilots will kneel. This will show unity and it will be a beautiful gesture, ”added Hamilton.
Earlier it was reported that Daniil Kvyat and a number of pilots did not kneel in a sign of the fight against racism before the start of the Hungarian Grand Prix.
