Lewis Hamilton to 'take a knee' on Formula One return in Black Lives Matter support

Lewis Hamilton is poised to take a knee when Formula One returns next month in Austria.

The paddock will reconvene at the Red Bull Ring for the first time since the Australian Grand Prix was called off in March.

And sources close to the Mercedes driver claim he wants to make a public show of support for Black Lives Matter, reports the Daily Mail.

The six-time world champion is the only black driver in the sport's history and has been outspoken about the lack of diversity.

He recently said: "I see those of you who are staying silent, some of you the biggest stars yet you stay silent in the midst of injustice. Not a sign from anybody in my industry which of course is a white dominated sport.

"I'm one of the only people of colour there, yet I stand alone."

George Floyd's death in the United States was the catalyst for widespread global protests demanding an end to racism.

Hamilton has shared a series of Instagram posts, one including a picture of Martin Luther King praying on one knee.

He included the caption: "Rules and beliefs that were created hundreds of years ago still exist and poison society. MLK gave his life for the same thing we are fighting for today, and still there is no justice.

"Who's going to lead us today? The leaders we have selected fail us time and time again. We must continue to rage into the night until change happens."

An F1 spokesman also said: "This is a very important issue and we support anyone who wants to show their support in the fight against racism."
