Therefore refused the Formula 1 stars to kneel

With the exception of Lewis Hamilton bar all the Formula 1 drivers in the same t-shirt prior to Sunday's special forces arrive in Austria.

'End racism' stood there, with a clear reference to the fight against racism that really is in the time the world over as a result of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the resulting civil unrest and demonstrations the world over.

The remaining six were standing. It was Max Verstappen, Antonio Giovinazzi, Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz, Daniil Kvyat and Kimi Räikkönen.

They stood behind and participated in the support. But down they would not.

It had both Leclerc and Verstappen explained on Twitter, after that Friday had been a virtual kørermøde, where the subject was discussed.

the Conclusion was now rather easy to have to do. All drivers and their teams agree with and fight for a more equal world regardless of skin color. But the consensus about the way of expressing himself was not present. As Charles Leclerc formulated itself:

- All 20 drivers to stand together with their teams against racism and prejudices and embraces at the same time diversity, equality and inclusion. We are supporting the Formula 1's and the FIA's battle.

- I believe that the facts and behavior in everyday life it is, it's about the above formal actions, which in some countries can be seen as controversial.

I kneel not, but it does not mean that I am not as dedicated as others in the fight against racism.

He has not since elaborated on what he believes in, that acts as in certain countries, can be controversial. Maybe it's a reference to the Colin Kaepernicks of the situation in the UNITED states, where NFL players protest several years ago cost him several years of his career.

Max Verstappen wrote:

- I am very interested in equality and the fight against racism. But I also believe that everyone has the right to express themselves at a time and in a way that suits them best.

I kneel not in the day, but I respect and support personal choices, and all drivers take.

the Teams have let it be completely up to the riders themselves to decide how they would act in the situation, while the FIA, the international bilsportsunion, has stressed that the upper body has not wanted to instruct drivers to make decisions, which can be seen as being political.
