#StyrianGrandPrix: Lewis Hamilton wins Styrian Race, Supports Black Lives Matter Movement

After a dominant win in Sunday’s race – the Mercedes driver’s first of 2020 in the season’s second event – Hamilton clenched his right fist in the air when he got out of the car, and then again on the podium, in a powerful Black Power salute.

With all drivers wearing anti-racism T-shirts for the second race in a row, Hamilton had earlier again taken a knee at the front of the grid alongside 11 other drivers before the race.

Four drivers stood, while four were not present, in pre-race scenes that promoted fresh debate about whether the gathering marked a sufficiently united show of solidarity

Lewis Hamilton wins Styrian

Hamilton dominated Sunday’s race from start to finish for his 85th career win – just six away from Michael Schumacher’s record – a week after finishing a penalised fourth at the same circuit after a disappointing weekend by the six-time champion’s high standards.

He has long been renowned for hitting back straight away after setbacks and when asked how he manages it, Hamilton told Sky F1: “With great difficulty, but where there’s a will there’s a way.

“The last weekend definitely was psychologically challenging to have the penalties and then to be called into the stewards on Sunday morning just before the race. Then [to] get another penalty and then another one in the race.

“It’s never easy, but there’s nothing you can do about the past, all you can do is focus and channel your energy to the future. So, I just made sure I stayed here, trained well, ate well, slept well and worked hard with Bono [Peter Bonnington, Hamilton’s race engineer] and the guys to understand where last weekend went wrong and corrected it this weekend.”
