Lewis Hamilton And Co Kneel at the start of British GP, Hamilton who has fought to raise awareness of racism in
Formula One, was joined by fellow Brit Lando Norris.
It is not mandatory to kneel, some F1 stars decided not to Kneel and stood instead.
Hamilton, 35, insists he doesn’t want his rivals to “feel forced” to kneel. After last month’s Austrian GP,
when six drivers stayed standing, he said: “I don’t want it to be a case of people feeling forced.
I want people to be excited to be a part of the change.
“I want people to think that while they are fortunate not to have experienced racism, they can try to understand
what it feels like and that they don’t want people to feel,
that way and want to be part of change so in the future our kids can lead a better quality of life.”
“Whether we do take the knee or we don’t take the knee, that is not the question.
I don’t think that needs to be the reason why people judge some of us to be in support of it or not. We all support it.
