Hamilton gets full support from Mercedes: We stand with you, Lewis

Lewis Hamilton posted a statement online about the tragic death of George Floyd in the United States. The six-time World Champion reached the top of Formula 1 and immediately after that the British driver was supported by several drivers from the pinnacle of motorsport. Mercedes has now also come out with a message.

Hamilton's employer says he's absolutely right. "We stand with you, Lewis. Tolerance is an elementary principle of our team and we are enriched by diversity in all its forms", can be read through the official Mercedes channels.

"We welcome and encourage people from all races, cultures, religions, philosophies and lifestyles, and condemn every form of discrimination as we work together to drive change forward. We are deeply saddened by the recent developments and hope for a de-escalation soon."
