‘Not My Choice’ To Race In The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Says Lewis Hamilton
Because of the country’s human rights record, Lewis Hamilton says he will not be racing in Saudi Arabia this weekend.
Saudi Arabia is holding the first race of a long-term deal on a new street circuit in the coastal city of Jeddah.
“Do I feel at ease here?” Hamilton asked. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I do. However, I did not choose to be here. The sport has made a conscious decision to be here.
“And whether it’s right or wrong, while we are here, it’s important we do try to raise awareness.”
