Formula 1: Hamilton demands consistent adherence to Human Rights Laws from host countries

In the wake of 30 Members of Parliament in the UK raising concerns over human rights violations linked to last Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton has said Formula 1 “needs to do more” to solve the issue in some of its host countries.

The Briton revealed his knowledge had been drawn to the issue by rights groups in arrival in Bahrain, hence, he would “take some time to digest them.

“It is very important for all sports to use the platform they have to push for change,” the seven-time champion said.

“The human rights issue in so many of the places we go to is a massive problem.

“We are one of the few sports that go to so many different countries and I do believe as a sport we need to do more.

“We have taken a step in the right direction but we can always do more.

“They have put some steps in place for the places we go to but it is important to make sure they are implemented in the right way and that we see some action taken.

“That is going to take some work but it’s all in the background.”

Human rights groups have continuously raised concerns about F1‘s host countries, which Bahrain happens to be a part of.

Others include Saudi Arabia – which is set to debut on the 2021 calendar, China, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Turkey as well as Azerbaijan.
