F1 drivers make joint statement against racism for Austrian GP

The subject of racism is a much-discussed topic in the royal class of motor racing at the moment. The Formula 1 organization already made a statement by creating the initiative #WeRaceAsOne and now the GPDA is going to make itself heard.

The Grand Prix Drivers' Association, in fact the union of Formula 1 drivers, will 'publicly support' the current situation prior to the Austrian Grand Prix. That is what has been decided after several online meetings.
