Lewis Hamilton has introduced a new ‘rainbow’ helmet in Qatar, in support of the LGBTQ+ community, and he says he’ll wear it in next races.

Lewis Hamilton is sporting rainbow colours on his helmet in Qatar, a country where male homosexuality remains illegal.

At the post-qualifying press conference he revealed he will be wearing the helmet in Saudi Arabia and possibly Abu Dhabi.

“I’ll be using the same helmet through probably the last two races after this,” Lewis said.

“Or at least next week also, but I am not aware of anyone commenting on it or any negative feedback.

“On the back it says ‘we stand together’ and ‘love is love’ and it’s important for me to represent that community, I think, here as I know there are several situations which aren’t perfect and need to be highlighted.

“But I hope that someone reaches out and I would love to know what is happening here and what they’re doing to help support that community more, the LGBTQ+ community.

“I wait to hear,” concluded the Briton.
