F1 has ‘massive’ problem to address over human rights, says Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton has insisted that Formula One has a “consistent and massive” problem it must address with human rights abuses in countries it visits. He said he would be considering their content in detail in the forthcoming days but was unequivocal that F1 had to make steps to address human rights abuses in the countries it visits. “The human rights issue in so many of the places we go to is a consistent and massive problem,” he said. F1 adopted a commitment to respecting human rights in its operations globally in 2015 and have reiterated they follow its protocols. “We take violence, abuse of human rights and repression very seriously,” a spokesperson said. The Bahrain government has denied that hosting the race is sportswashing and firmly rejected claims of human rights abuses.
