British Grand Prix: Formula 1 drivers to continue anti-racism demonstrations

Leading Formula 1 drivers say they believe they should continue with their pre-race anti-racism demonstrations throughout the year. In the first three races of the season, the majority of drivers have taken the knee alongside Hamilton, while a minority chose to remain standing. Verstappen said: “Everybody has their own way of expressing it but we are all united in fighting racism and trying to end it. Hamilton said he had spoken to FIA president Jean Todt, and F1 boss Chase Carey and managing director Ross Brawn, “to make sure they know we’re all on the same team here”. Hamilton and Grosjean spoke on the phone after the last race in Hungary, where the world champion had singled out the Frenchman as one of a minority of drivers who had wished to discontinue the demonstrations. Hamilton said: “We learned we have more in common than we perhaps think and he’s clearly a caring person.
