Lewis Hamilton backs peaceful Just Stop Oil protest at British Grand Prix

Environmental activists are targeting sporting events and are expected to take action at Silverstone and the seven-time world champion, who has expressed sympathy with their cause in the past, believed they had a valid point to make. However, while Hamilton was unequivocal in stating that protesters should not climb on to the track or endanger lives, he did support their right to make a point about the climate emergency. At Silverstone, Hamilton was clear he supported the cause Just Stop Oil were promoting but did emphasise they should make their point without endangering lives by climbing on to the track. If there was to be one [a protest] we hope it is not on track.”.
