In Formula 1, the circuit will kick off its’ delayed season in little more than a week with the Austrian Grand Prix.
Formula 1 is also launching is a new initiative in trying to improve inclusion and equality, led by black driver Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton is the 3-time Formula 1 World Drivers’ champion. This is a project, you would think everyone could get behind, but former Formula 1 Chief Executive Bernie Ecclestone seems to have some different takes on issues involving race. It’s something that is not sitting well with Lewis, he says Ecclestone is ignorant and uneducated..
Ecclestone said, “I don’t think he’s going to do anything bad or good for Formula 1. It’ll just make people think which is more important. I think that’s the same for everybody. People ought to think a little bit and say, what the hell somebody is not the same, same as white people that black and the black people should think the same thing about white people, because in lots of cases, black people are more racist than white people.”
