RaceFans Round-up: F1 making ‘positive adjustments’ to ‘WeRaceAsOne’ diversity campaign


In the round-up: Lewis Hamilton says he is pleased by what he heard from new Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali on the sport’s plans to improve diversity in the sport.

What they say

Hamilton was asked what came out of the discussion Domenicali had with drivers ahead of the Bahrain test about their plans for the ‘WeRaceAsOne’ campaign following its launch last year.

It was a really good meeting. I think it’s a really great first step that Stefano’s taking the time to sit with us all and be open in terms of having this discussion of how we can work together to improve the sport.

We didn’t necessarily have much of a discussion about it. They explained to us their sort of plans and we can go back to them. There wasn’t anything that had to be done there on the spot. They are making some adjustments which I think are positive.

I think last year we had the slogan, obviously, ‘WeRaceAsOne’. But action is needed this year. That was something that was expressed to us. And I think that’s really what we better make sure, that we continue to have that conversation, continue to make sure that action is taken this year as we continue to push for diversity and inclusion within this sport. And I think they’re aligned, I think they’re all aligned with that goal of achieving that together.
