Lewis Hamilton Shows His Support For The Black Lives Matter Movement During His Styrian Grand Prix Victory

Lewis Hamilton secured his first win of the season and the 85th of his career as Mercedes delivered a one-two finish in Sunday’s Styrian Grand Prix. Before and after the race, Hamilton made a more definitive statement by kneeling ahead of the anthem and raising his fist on the winner’s podium. The scene is reminiscent of the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, when Tommie Smith & John Carlos performed a Black Power salute while being presented with their medals.
