FIA takes step away from political speech ban

F1’s governing body says it is only interested in limiting drivers’ political gestures and speech “during key moments”. Hamilton, 38, said he also appreciated the backing of F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali, who stepped in to reassure the drivers that their freedom of speech will be protected. “The support from Stefano has been amazing,” said the Mercedes driver. “All of the drivers have been very much aligned on freedom of speech.”. However, the FIA has now issued a ‘guidance note’ to clarify misunderstandings about the regulations changes. However, the restrictions will apply “during FIA press conferences” and the pre-race “drivers’ parade”. “I hope and believe that enough drivers have said things now to make a bit of a u-turn.”.
