Hamilton won’t quit F1 for activism

Lewis Hamilton says he will not quit Formula 1 simply because he advocates for political causes including environmentalism. The seven time world champion admitted he wants to be remembered as one of the world’s “change-makers”, but admitted that he sometimes needs to be more diplomatic. “At the beginning of the year I was very outspoken and calling out the sport,” he told Wired UK magazine. “At the time that was the right thing for me, but I discovered that there’s times where you have to be very diplomatic, where there’s more you can do by discussions in the background, rather than embarrassing people.”.
