Lewis Hamilton reveals career has been ‘quite a lonely journey’ as Mercedes legend demands more representation in F1

LEWIS HAMILTON described his incredible Formula One career as “quite a lonely journey” due to the lack of diverse representation in the sport. Hamilton led the drivers in taking the knee and regularly spoke up asking for more inclusion in the sport for black people. After noticing the stark reality once again in 2019 after winning the title, Hamilton helped set up the Hamilton Commission to “address the underrepresentation of Black people in UK motorsport”. The Stevenage star added on GMA: “And when I asked the question there was no real great feedback answer to that question, so I put together the Hamilton Commission because it starts with education and understanding. “With the Hamilton Commission, we’ve now started ‘Mission 44’ which I’ve funded myself to try and create more representation, support and empowerment for these young under-served groups.”.
