Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton launches an appeal on this revolution in F1!
In 2022, there will no longer be a pre-race ceremony which allowed drivers to convey the message of their choice. Formula 1 wants to move from gesture to action, which explains this change. For his part, Lewis Hamilton hopes that this will grow over time.
For the coming season, the leaders of the Formula 1 decided to change the pre-race protocol. As a result, the ceremony which allowed pilots to convey the message of their choice, such as the fight against racism, has been removed. Stefano DomenicaliCEO of the F1clarified that it was done with the aim of passing the championship “ from gesture to action, in order to improve diversity and inclusion in the discipline. Lewis Hamilton, a staunch anti-racism advocate, hopes it will gain momentum over the years.
“We should be able to send messages at any time”
» Stefano Domenicali’s comments? They make sense. (…) It needs to get bigger now, so I can’t wait to see [cette évolution] over time. Last year, I had a nice exchange with all the teams on inclusion, so that each team tries to promote diversity. Rather than just talking about these things and doing these gestures, I actually think it takes effort. I don’t know if we need this time [pour passer un message avant le Grand Prix]. We should be able to do this at any time. But I think with the overall tagline from last year, with all the different things compiled into one, we can do more and be more impactful in some way. But for now, I don’t know what it will be “confided the pilot of mercedes in comments reported by Motorsport.com.
