Sir Lewis Hamilton backs move for drivers to STOP taking the knee before each race – as new guidelines are agreed with F1 chief Stefano Domenicali to support ‘WeRaceAsOne’ initiative instead

Formula One bosses have issued new guidelines that do not require drivers to take a knee before each race — a move backed by Sir Lewis Hamilton. The seven-time world champion campaigned for the grid to make the symbolic anti-racism gesture unanimous last year, only for several drivers to remain standing. Last season’s ‘End Racism’ slogan will be done away with as the sport seeks to broaden its diversity message. An F1 insider has confirmed that drivers can kneel or stand or bow their heads as they stand collectively behind the ‘WeRaceAsOne’ banner. ‘We will see how we can work together so the sport takes more of a lead.’.
