F1 drivers defend anti-oil protesters

Top Formula 1 drivers on Sunday defended anti-oil protesters who disrupted the British GP by sitting down on the racing line on lap one of the race at Silverstone. Chief inspector Tom Thompson, who had warned of the potential of a track invasion ahead of time, said he was “very disappointed” that the protesters “ignored our warnings” to go ahead with their “incredibly dangerous” action. “People can show their opinion responsibly,” F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said, “but to run onto the track and put drivers, track officials and themselves at risk is incredibly stupid and unforgivable.”. “How many more young people have to step up before the government will listen?”.
