Lewis Hamilton is having a remarkable impact in Formula One. He's shattering records on the track - and setting new benchmarks once thought impossible - but also becoming a loud voice for social justice away from the sport.

Hamilton is a seven-time world champion pushing for an eighth title this year. He is also the only Black driver in the history of F1's world championship, which started in 1950.

F1 has allowed a small portion of time ahead of every race since 2020 giving drivers the chance to make any statements they would like to make. Hamilton has knelt ahead of every race since the opening race of 2020's season, which occurred just weeks after the death of George Floyd.

Hamilton has also used this opportunity to wear t-shirts carrying slogans on them. These have been poignant, creative and thought-provoking in equal measure.
