Having initially said it would look into the matter, the FIA ​​will instead refine its recommendations on what will be allowed for drivers and teams both before and after the race.

“I want you to know that I won’t stop, I won’t give up, I won’t stop using this platform to shed light on what I think is right,” Hamilton wrote on Instagram.

“I want to thank those of you who continue to support me and show love, I am so grateful.

“But this is a journey for all of us to come together and challenge the world on all levels of injustice, not just racial.

“We can help make this place a better place for our children and future generations.”

Taylor was fatally shot at her Louisville home in March when three plainclothes police officers complied with a knocking order.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is investigating into the incident, and the FBI is investigating whether Taylor’s civil rights were violated. Taylor’s mother has filed a civil lawsuit against three officers involved in her daughter’s death.
No officer has been charged with a crime. Two officers remain in force, and the third was dismissed and asks for his job back.

“It has been 6 months since Breonna Taylor was killed by police in her own home. So far, justice has not been done. We will not be silent,” Hamilton tweeted on Sunday, along with photos of himself in a T-shirt.

He also added in a post-race conference: “It took me a long time to get this jersey and I wanted to put it on and draw attention to the fact that there are people who have been killed on the street and there are people who have been killed in own house.

“We have to keep raising awareness … I think we just need to keep pushing this issue.”

The 35-year-old was a powerful voice during the Black Lives Matter movement. calling on motorsport to do more to fight racism as well as participating in the BLM protest in London earlier this year.

He also announced plans to set up a commission in his own name to increase diversity in motorsport.
