LANDO NORRIS says Formula One drivers have discussed taking a knee against racism at the first race of the season on Sunday.
Six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has been vocal in his support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and his Mercedes team announced on Monday that they will adopt a symbolic black livery on their cars this year.
Following similar actions in the Premier League, Norris said: “Some of the drivers have already been speaking [about taking a knee].”
“If we are going to do it, we should all do it as a grid.”
Saying the decision will be made on Friday, the British driver added: “We will do whatever we can to show that we care and respect everyone. We will do what is right when the time comes.”
Like Hamilton, Norris will carry the End Racism message on his car this season. The 20-year old McLaren driver recently encouraged people to sign petitions following Hamilton’s criticism of his peers for staying silent on the matter.
“This sport reaches millions of people and the more we can do as drivers, teams, and as a community in Formula One, the bigger impact we can have,” Norris said.
