Lewis Hamilton pledges to ‘keep pushing’ in fight against racism

World champion Lewis Hamilton has pledged to “keep pushing” in the fight against racism this year. Hamilton, who led Formula 1’s pre-race demonstrations promoting equality last year, said it was important “to hold ourselves and others accountable.”. Hamilton said he was “proud” of the fact the majority of drivers had taken the knee before races last year. All drivers showed their support for anti-racism, but while Hamilton led 13 in taking the knee, seven chose to remain standing. Hamilton, writing in a post on social media, said: “Change is still needed. We have to keep striving for equality for all, in order to continue to see true and lasting change in our world. Hamilton last year set up his own commission to look into the causes of the lack of diversity within the motorsport industry.
