Lewis Hamilton has already indicated he will not back down from his statements on human rights. Despite being banned from these statements by the FIA. Former McLaren head of communications Matt Bishop is calling on the other Formula 1 drivers to also raise their voices in support of social equality. Hamilton has been unwavering and unparalleled in his willingness to raise human rights issues, particularly on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community. Bishop, who previously worked with Hamilton at Mercedes, helped establish Racing Pride in support of the LGBTQ+ community in motorsport. Vettel and Hamilton "Obviously I don't know what it's like to be a Black man, but I am a gay man and both of those things are extremely rare in Formula 1." Bishop said in an interview with Sky Sports. He thinks the struggle with equality is waning as Sebastian Vettel has left Formula 1. "Anybody who thinks it's a good idea to try to prevent the most successful driver in the history of Formula 1 and it's only Black driver from speaking out in favour of human rights, good luck with that". Thus Bishop. The FIA's rule to ensure that drivers do not make political, religious or social statements hardly seems to be taken seriously by drivers. The rule states that in future, drivers must be allowed to make such statements.
