Two F1 figures slam political speech ban

Two leading Formula 1 figures have hit out at the FIA’s ban on political speech. The spokesman said that is “in alignment with the political neutrality of sport”. “What I love is racing, but politics is part of today’s society. I think we should have a say in things if we want to. Former McLaren driver David Coulthard, said he can understand why the FIA wants to clamp down on the use of the Formula 1 platform for often-divisive politics. “If everyone uses the opportunity to make a political statement, there is no issue that is not important to someone. He said the clampdown on political speech in F1 is “clearly wrong”.
