Lewis Hamilton has called on Formula One and his fellow drivers to stay focused on the sport's anti-racism stance and present a less chaotic image before next Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.

The six-time world champion said after winning Sunday's Styrian Grand Prix that a number of drivers wanted to stop the pre-race anti-racism gestures and that he feels some teams are not doing enough to show solidarity with the movement.

You may not be interested in the movement, but the movement is interested in you!

To Hamilton: Shut up and drive!

You can’t stop racism. Racists exist in every race, unfortunately. It is not a condition specific to the White race. It is a condition of the soul. However, discrimination is fixable. We have anti discrimination laws that must be enforced. There is where the rhetoric should lie. Haven’t we found out that morality cannot not be legislated, by now? And racism is a moral question.

C19fan :" .. a number of drivers wanted to stop the pre-race anti-racism gestures
and that he feels some teams are not doing enough to show solidarity with the movement."

Firstly, the movement isn't pro-racial tolerance, it's a world-wide movement, Soros / Obungler funded social
marxist economic and class warfare movement.
Any accident that it just sorta sprung up everywhere, world-wide,and all at once ?
( Oh yeah, and you still believe in the tooth fairy, right. I forgot !)
Talk is cheap - try walking the walk.
I pulled up a photo of your racing 'pit crew', and there wasn't a dark or brown, or yellow face among them.
Charity begins at home,.. and either walk the walk, or sit down and shut up .

I quit watching F1 after many decades. Hamilton’s a lowlife scumbag, and FIA sucks for caving into that dirtbag mutt.

All these years that Formula x racing has existed, I have yet to see a self-funded (with all the usual car suppory patches from vendors) all Negro race crew. With all the video history available of exemplary automobile handling skills, I believe those to be the main reason as to why not. All those tv ads to support Negro colleges, why hasn’t there one graduate with the drive and interest to design a Formula car??
I remember the Japanese race car.
In America, where Negro women number-crunchers put American astronauts in space, why haven’t they put forward their own Formula team, instead of having everybody else perform an imposed salute?

Up until this latest, I would have disagreed. Not a big fan ... he seems to love the glitterati life ... but in a sport dominated by the hyper-rich I liked his talent and relatively humble beginning.

This year he’s determined to be the useful idiot. He mouths the lefty platitudes just as he, even by his own admission, got them from his celebrity friends. While having not one clue and living the life of the 0.0001%, , he kneels and fist pumps obediently. He’s become the very definition of the virtue signaling dweeb.

I enjoyed Lewis in his rookie year when he was teamed up with that jack-ass Alonso.

Have not liked him since and this just PROVES the point.

Imagine what the F1 antics will be like in 2021 with Alonso returning and Lewis with a 7th (I hope not) title...

Net-worth of Lewis Hamilton is estimated to be around $285 million. Imagine how much money he would have if he were Irish.

Very good driver. Perhaps he should concentrate on his driving.
