</strong>GOOD MORNING FORMULA ONE FANS</strong></p>n

Lewis Hamilton has had his say on Bernie Ecclestone’s controversial views on the Black Lives Matter movement.</p>n

He said: “Bernie is out of the sport and a different generation but this is exactly what is wrong – ignorant and uneducated comments which show us how far we as a society need to go before real equality can happen.</p>n

“It makes complete sense to me now that nothing was said or done to make our sport more diverse or to address the racial abuse I received throughout my career.</p>n

“If someone who has run the sport for decades has such a lack of understanding of the deep routed issues we as black people deal with every day, how can we expect all the people who work under him to understand. It starts at the top.</p>n

“Now the time has come for change. I will not stop pushing to create an inclusive future for our sport with equal opportunity for all.</p>n

“To create a world that provides equal opportunity for minorities. I will continue to use my voice to represent those who don’t have one, and to speak for those who are underrepresented to provide an opportunity to have a chance in our sport.”</p>n

Formula 1 have also issued a statement distancing themselves from their former CEO’s comments on racism and equality.</p>n

It read: “At a time when unity is needed to tackle racism and inequality, we completely disagree with Bernie Ecclestone’s comments that have no place in Formula 1 or society.</p>n

“Mr Ecclestone has played no role in Formula 1 since he left our organisation in 2017, his title Chairman Emeritus, being honorific, expired in January 2020.”</p>n”,”raw”:”
