Six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton recently came into the spotlight again as he spoke out not only against the race discrimination in the United States which turned into widespread protests, but also the silence from the F1 paddock as well.

Sharing it in his Instagram Story, he wrote:

“I see those of you who are staying silent, some of you the biggest stars yet you stay silent in the midst of injustice. Not a sign from anybody in my industry which of course is a white dominated sport. I’m one of the only people of colour there yet I stand alone.

“I would have thought by now you would see why this happens and say something about it but you can’t stand alongside us. Just know I know who you are and I see you.”

It did not take long for his call to be answered as soon after, he was joined by other names like Daniel Ricciardo, Charles LeClerc and Lando Norris.

George Floyd was the latest victim of police brutality in the United States where he succumbed to his injuries during an arrest. The case immediately went wildfire and his death has sparked massive, widespread protests across the US.
