A New “Hamilton Commission” Will Increase Diversity In Motorsport

Lewis Hamilton has announced plans to set up a commission in his name to increase diversity in motorsport.

The world champion said he wants the Hamilton Commission to make “real, tangible and measurable change”.

“Despite my success in the sport, the institutional barriers that have kept F1 highly exclusive persist,” he said in a column for the Sunday Times.

“It is not enough to point to me, or to a single new black hire, as a meaningful example of progress.”

Hamilton, 35, said his commission would explore how motorsport can be used “to engage more young people from black backgrounds with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects”.
