After Lewis Hamilton publicly called out Formula 1 for not raising their voice on racial injustice, Mercedes stepped in to support their team-mate.
Since Hamilton publicly blasted the motorsport community for not speaking out on the current racial crisis stemming from the murder of George Floyd, many motorsport personalities began to use their voice to champion racial justice. Now Mercedes also steps in to support their driver.
“We stand with you, Lewis,” read a statement from Mercedes.
“Tolerance is an elementary principle of our team and we are enriched by diversity in all its forms.
“We welcome and encourage people from all races, cultures, religions, philosophies and lifestyles, and condemn every form of discrimination as we work together to drive change forward.
“We are deeply saddened by the recent developments and hope for a de-escalation soon.”
