Lewis Hamilton has taken his role as leader of the Formula 1 in pursuit of equality that as sporting successes grow, even more so does his voice against what he considers fair: either the fight for the ‘Black Lives Matter’, veganism, the environment or whatever you consider.
So much so that even despite being the rider with the most victories in history, with the most pole positions and with the most podiums, and facing a weekend in which he will in all probability equal Michael sSchumacher with seven World Cups, maintains that his daily struggle is to achieve a better world, through gestures such as kneeling before each Grand Prix.
“The Drivers’ World Cup does not necessarily impact people’s lives. Trying to improve conditions for everyone, equal human rightsThat’s the most important thing for me and it makes me feel much more proud, “he told the media. Although he does admit that he is very satisfied to reach Schumacher, for him the milestones on the track are not enough.
“It’s more the message you send to children and not only to children, but above all to them, that you have to dream bigger than you think you can dream and not let anyone tell you that you can’t do it, “said Hamilton most author of self-help books.

“I want to stay”
Hamilton has also referred to his future, now that in addition you are not guaranteed a contract with Mercedes, since you haven’t signed it … because you want to see some changes.
“I still don’t have all the answers to what I want to do. I am well aware of the idea that I want to continue with Mercedes. I would love to help you in your quest to drive change. They are getting more involved in green cars, electrifying more, and I want to help them on that path, I want to help them push for diversity. There is a lot to discuss and a lot to go through, but it is something that we will do, but after the work is finished at the end of the year, “he warned.
