Lewis Hamilton will continue to fight for racial equality – despite failing to get universal support from his F1 rivals.

The world champion took a knee and wore a Black Lives Matter T-shirt ahead of the Austrian GP.

He was joined by 14 others, yet six drivers on the grid remained standing.

Hamilton, who has used his social media to push for increased diversity and an end to racism, said: “It is great that Formula One and Mercedes have taken note of the issues we are facing across the world and decided to do something about it.

Lewis Hamilton is uncatchable in this year’s drivers’ world championship, according to his main rivals.

Both Max Verstappen of Red Bull and Charles Leclerc of Ferrari effectively conceded the title on Sunday after the British Grand Prix as the six-time champion claimed his third straight.
