Lewis Hamilton’s pole position on Black Lives Matter and the Amazon rainforest has seen him trade in parties and red carpets to shed the ‘playboy’ image that shaped his early F1 career… now he truly is a champion both on and off the track

Seeing Lewis Hamilton leading the way is nothing new if you are a Formula One fan. Hamilton has been deeply affected by the riots following the death of George Floyd by white police officers in the United States back in May, and since the F1 campaign restarted in July he has led the way in the sport promoting anti-racism. Hamilton has had Roscoe for seven years as they celebrate his win in Portugal. Hamilton has used his global image to protest causes, stepping on to the Tuscan Grand Prix podium after winning in September to call for justice after the killing of Breonna Taylor. Hamilton also protested in support of Breonna Taylor before the race at Mugello. We all know the lifestyle that he has or that I have, that Formula One drivers who take 200 planes a year have. Alonso has a point but it should not detract away from the messages Hamilton is trying to promote. Awareness is the key component for Hamilton who continues to be a champion on and off the circuit.
