Schumacher hits back at racism criticism

Last week, the Haas rookie flirted with controversy by answering “no comment” when asked by La Stampa newspaper to talk about F1 and Lewis Hamilton’s political activism. “I was recently misinterpreted after an interview on a question surrounding political activism,” the 21-year-old said. Seven time world champion Hamilton said on social media last Friday: “Last year, some of us took a knee in support of equality which I am proud of. At the same time, La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that 45 human rights associations have asked Hamilton to boycott this year’s inaugural Saudi Arabian GP. “You have shown immense courage in your fight,” the human rights groups reportedly told Hamilton in a letter.
