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.
Hamilton has claimed 92 Grand Prix victories and speaking about what he has been doing outside of his Formula One commitments he said:
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.
Hamilton has been extremely vocal in his support for Black Lives Matter and his support. As for what the future holds for the Mercedes driver, Hamilton says he does not yet know what the future hold as he is yet to sign a contract extension with the Mercedes team as his contract runs out at the end of the 2020 season.
