After winning his seventh world title last weekend, Lewis Hamilton told everyone that in the future he will call even harder for diversity in the sport, and that it means as much to him as the success he achieves on the track.
“It has motivated me all this year. You can see from my rides that I have a new fire in me. ”
"I won the championship, but there is another big victory waiting for us - but we will all need to participate together."
However, his call for change was ignored by the Formula 1 leadership, which announced that next year we will witness the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, a country that is miles away from the civilization that the West knows. Hamilton did not mention that race specifically, but said:
“A lot of organizations in the world turn their heads to the things that are happening and claim that these are political topics. Human rights are not a political issue. Human rights should be the same for everyone, and yet we are going to all those countries where this is a problem. ”
Saudi Arabia is not the first country where human rights are an awkward topic, given that Formula 1 has already hosted and regularly visits China and Bahrain.
While some are calling for a boycott, Hamilton sees going to those countries as an opportunity to raise awareness of the problems:
"We must not boycott those areas. We need to understand how to become more active, how we can use this platform to drive change. ”
Will you boycott the Saudi Arabian GP?
