Lewis Hamilton claims he has ‘found purpose’ by promoting anti-racism and pushing for diversity in F1

Lewis Hamilton believes his off-track drive for social awareness and inclusion has given him the fuel to continue competing at his best in Formula One.

The seven-time world champion is currently in an exciting championship fight with Red Bull star Max Verstappen in pursuit of a record eighth title, with just five races to go by the end of the season.

But in combination with a desire to overshadow Michael Schumacher’s seven titles, Hamilton also claims that his goals outside of F1, including raising awareness of racism and highlighting cases of social injustice, are helping motivate him towards success in the world. Big prize.

The 36-year-old still doesn’t think enough is being done in motorsports to promote diversity and stay abreast of the Black Lives Matter message.

She performed amid the movement when she wore a T-shirt that read ‘arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor’ at the 2020 Tuscany Grand Prix.

“This year I have not built on past experiences, but on feeding myself with this energy to do this positive work.” he told Sky Sports. ‘I realized that last year and it was part of it last year. Getting on the podium to be able to give that voice to Breonna was a huge boost for me.

‘So now it’s the work that I’m doing in the background and then I show up and I’m enjoying this work.

‘Are you helping me run? I think so. It’s like my new album and I feel like it’s giving me more longevity because it’s a lot of work we have to do. I feel like it also gives my life real purpose. Running is not a purpose, it’s something you do. ‘

Part of Hamilton’s goals have included founding Mission 44, in reference to the race number in your car, which is a foundation that supports children from underrepresented groups. It has invested £ 20 million in the project with the aim of financing career paths in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as well as in Formula One.

The 36-year-old has admitted that he has ‘tough days where he doesn’t want to train’ and that his outside projects keep him motivated now and for when he decides to leave Formula One.

There have definitely been times where I’m like, I don’t know if I can go on, or maybe there’s something else I want to do. But I don’t think I found my purpose until last year. ”

“Now I feel like I have a mission in life and it’s not just about winning championships and races, that’s great, but being able to have an impact to help young people get ahead.”

Hamilton recently surprised elementary school pupils, all aspiring engineers, on a visit to the F1 Mercedes headquarters in Brackley, Northamptonshire.

Pointing to his car, he said: ‘This Lewis car. Nobody touches this car. ‘

Then the seven-time world champion took off his costume to the surprise and delight of the students and said, ‘Well, you know, the reason they let me play that is because I’m Lewis.’

He told them: ‘Education, I know, is key for all children. There are many young people who do not realize that being an engineer, for example, is a way they can go, “he added.

The British star, meanwhile, has admitted to being ‘frustrated and saddened’ when he reflected on an image of his team celebrating their sixth world championship, realizing that he was still the only black man.

“ I expanded them from the F1 Instagram, ” he told the WSJ. ‘I’ve been here 15 years, 14 years, how has it not changed? I was really sad about it. I was frustrated and sad. ”

The seven-time world champion remains the only black driver in the sport and he couldn’t help but ask why.

‘I `m 36 years old; I’ve been wondering, “Why me?” He said.

‘Why am I the only black driver who has made it to Formula One, and not only that, I am in the front? There has to be a more important reason for me to be here. ‘

Hamilton partnered with the Royal Academy of Engineering, which released a report in July that revealed that less than one percent of the people who work in Formula One are black.
