Saudi Arabian Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton and other F1 drivers uncomfortable returning to Jeddah

Haas driver Kevin Magnussen said: “Last year was pretty, erm, special. Hamilton was the last to answer in the official news conference on matters of safety and human rights, and initially said that he believed “the opposite to everything they said”. Pressed on whether he was referring to human rights or safety, he said: “I don’t want to get into either.”. “I still feel that as a sport going to places with human rights issues such as this one, the sport is duty bound to raise awareness and try to leave a positive impact. Its director Maya Foa said that there had been at least 13 executions in Saudi Arabia in the last two weeks. The sport’s human rights problem has never been more glaring.”.
