Lewis Hamilton admits he’s ‘not comfortable’ ahead of first Saudi Arabia GP amid country’s horrific human rights record

LEWIS HAMILTON says he is not comfortable being in Saudi Arabia for the country’s first ever F1 race due to their poor human rights record. He also wore a distinctive helmet with the Pride Flag in support of the LGBT community, who have extremely limited rights in some Middle Eastern countries. He said: “I feel the sport, and we are duty-bound, to ensure we try and raise awareness for certain issues, especially human rights in the countries we are going to. I wouldn’t say I do, but it is not my choice to be here. There is a lot of change that needs to happen and our sport needs to do more.”.
