Six time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton says that he is prouder of the work that he is doing to help the push for equality in motor racing compared to him to him equaling Michael Schumacher’s championship record. Hamilton can win his seventh Formula One world championship in Turkey on Sunday if he finishes the race with eight points or more than team mate Valtteri Bottas.
Speaking to the media ahead of this weekend’s Turkish Grand Prix, Hamilton commented saying:
Winning a world championship is very much a personal thing … and that doesn’t necessarily impact people’s lives,“Something I’m much prouder of (is) trying to improve conditions for people around the world. That’s the most important thing for me.
What’s important is the journey this year has been combined with the fight for equality and a real growing process of learning what’s happening around the world and being more aware of surroundings and starting to see progress with that.
