F1 drivers to discuss taking a knee at opener
Formula One drivers will discuss taking a knee at the opening race of the delayed season in Austria on Sunday. “Some of the drivers have already been speaking,”
McLaren driver Lando Norris said. “If we are going to do it, we should all do it as a grid. It will be discussed following the drivers' briefing with the Grand Prix Drivers' Association on Friday.” The Black Lives Matter movement has been supported by soccer players in Germany, Italy and England taking a knee before and during games.
“We will do whatever we can to show that we care and respect everyone,” Norris said. “We will do what is right when the time comes.”
