British Racer Lewis Hamilton has called for anti racism approach in Formula One and maintain on the stance of equality.

According to the details, the statement of the six-time world champion came after winning Sunday’s Styrian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton said  that a number of drivers in Formula One wanted to stop the pre-race anti-racism gestures and that he feels some teams not doing enough to show solidarity with the black lives movement that took heat after the killing of African American George Floyd by white police official.

Hamilton added that “I just had to encourage them that racism is here, going to be here and probably be here longer than our time here and people of colour, who are subject to racism, don’t have time to take a moment to protest and that be it.”

“We’ve really got to think, as a sport, what we can do because those are nice signs, but passion is needed.”

“F1 has come forward and said they are supporting ending racism and it is amazing to see Mercedes is also doing that, but no other team has done a single thing,” said Hamilton.

On Monday, British racing driver Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton won his first race of the season  ‘Styrian Grand Prix’ in Austria.

The British racer converted his stunning qualifying performance into his first race win of the season.

Lewis Hamilton was happy to get the win after his fourth-place finish last weekend.

Hamilton has taken his 85th career win.  He’s now just six wins behind Schumacher’s all-time record of 91.

Furthermore, Hamilton was 1.2 seconds faster than second-placed starter Max Verstappen in Q3 and left the Red Bull driver for dead.

Verstappen left with no option but to hold off the other Mercedes Valtteri Bottas.

But Finn took second place with four laps to spare as Verstappen’s Red Bull ran out of steam.
