Bri­ton hails or­gan­ised show in racism fight

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport British Grand Prix -

Lewis Hamil­ton praised F1 or­gan­is­ers for giv­ing teams an ex­tra 10 min­utes on the grid ahead of yes­ter­day’s race so that the driv­ers could pledge sup­port for global anti-racism (above). Of­fi­cials had been crit­i­cised for a hap­haz­ard ap­proach at the past two races, but Hamil­ton said the ges­ture en­abled them to present a more uni­fied front. “It felt a lot more or­gan­ised,” Hamil­ton said. Seven driv­ers chose not to take the knee, one more than at the first race of the sea­son, as Kevin Mag­nussen joined the orig­i­nal six.
