MPs want F1 to look into links between races and human rights violations

Human rights groups accuse regimes in countries such as Saudi Arabia of using global sporting events to distract from their record of abuses and lend them an air of legitimacy. “F1 must establish an independent and impartial inquiry to examine the role of their races in human rights violations, and the FIA must adopt a human rights policy consistent with UN principles.
