Hamilton, who was knighted in the New Year’s Honours, has been a big advocate of supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and has spoken about how passionate he is with changing perceptions and fighting for equality.
“In the past it was about winning championships. Last year there was a lot of talk about equality and this year it is all about pushing for diversity and making sure that action is taken,” he said.
“But, of course, we exist to win and that’s what all these guys and girls [in the factory] are working towards. And it’s my goal to deliver that.”
Formula 1 launched the #WeRaceAsOne initiative in June last year as a way to support and highlight big issues facing motorsport and beyond.
