The sport has hooked the Black Lives Matter movement around the world, and one of the most common gestures to show its support is to get down on one knee - something that NFL player Colin Kaepernick was the first to do.

Ahead of the GP competition on Sunday, Formula One drivers will protest against racism, but not everyone is comfortable with squatting. It has been previously reported on and now it is confirmed by world champion Lewis Hamilton who has been active in the matter.

Last Friday the drivers had a meeting about the protests ahead of the competition.

- It is part of a dialogue where people try to understand, because some do not yet understand what is happening and what the cause of these protests is. I try to be a guide and I try to influence as many people as I can, he says according to the BBC.
