Formula 1 legend Hamilton shows support to #EndSARS campaign


Six-times Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton donned a T-shirt protesting against police brutality in Nigeria for a pre-race television interview at the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday.

Hamilton took to his Twitter account with 5.9 million followers to help raise awareness for the campaign and seek justice for victims of said brutality.
Speaking later, Hamilton described the recent happenings as a ‘human rights crisis.

“I’ve got to show this,” Hamilton, Formula One’s only Black driver, told Sky Sports as he revealed a green T-shirt with #EndSARS written on it at the end of the off-grid interview.

Interestingly, the Briton set a record 92 Formula 1 race wins, after sealing victory at the Portuguese Grand Prix, upstaging German great, Micheal Schumacher on Sunday.

However, he reverted to his usual ‘Black Lives Matter’ T-shirt for the officially-sanctioned pre-race anti-racism gesture on the starting grid.
