Lewis Hamilton Responds To Controversial Statement On Beliefs From FIA Presidet

“I only heard about it this morning. I’ve not read it, so I don’t really know what has been said.

“I’m also aware that sometimes things I’ve said have been taken out of context, so maybe that has happened. But I heard he has clarified things on social media which is positive.

“And it continues to be an important platform for us to use our voices, every single one of us here within the industry, within our companies, to do more, to speak out more on things and to spark more conversations.

“I’m really pride with what we are doing at Mercedes with our pride month star on the car, which is the first time I’ve seen that during my time at Mercedes.

“We have over 100,000 people within Mercedes-Benz and creating a more inclusive environment is so important. Creating better diversity within our organisation but also it’s so important within our sport.

“It’s moving at a very slow pace and we need more people to utilise that platform, so I encourage all the drivers to be more outspoken in future and speak out on things they care about.

“I’m proud of what Seb does and to be an ally of his.”
