- British driver says FIA should drive public backing from teams
- ‘It should be from the top that calls teams out, not me’
Lewis Hamilton has extended his criticism of Formula One’s stance against racism with a broadside against teams that have made no effort to address the matter. The British driver believes the teams should be compelled to act by F1’s management and the governing body, the FIA.
Hamilton won the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday and now leads the world championship. Afterwards, however, he berated F1 and fellow drivers for the disorganised way the pre-race gesture against racism had been handled in Budapest. Some drivers did not attend, some were late, others did not wear the “End Racism” T-shirts and the moment was rushed and shambolic.
