Hamilton still has Saudi concerns
Lewis Hamilton has reiterated that he still has concerns about racing in Saudi Arabia and has called for changes in the country.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s Jeddah Grand Prix, the F1 ace believes drivers have “a duty” to raise awareness of Saudi Arabia’s human rights record.
The Englishman previously said he was “not comfortable” with racing in the country and is now competing there just weeks after the Saudi regime executed 81 people in a single day.
Ahead of the first practice session, Hamilton said: “We don’t decide where we go and I think we have an obligation to try and do what we can.
“It’s not necessarily our responsibility that we’re brought here, but we try and do what we can and I think it’s important that we just try to educate ourselves.
“Ultimately it is the responsibility of those in power to really make changes and we are not seeing any real ones. So we need to see more.”
