Six-time World Driving Champion Lewis Hamilton won Sunday at the Tuscan Grand Prix in Italy. Post race he wore a t-shirt supporting Breonna Taylor while he talked with media.
Hamilton’s anti-racism efforts have been strong. This week he showed another interest launching X44, a team that will compete in the all-electric Extreme E off-road series.
It’s Hamilton’s first adventure into team ownership. He said this is a step towards raising awareness of global environmental issues.
Chip Ganassi Racing and Andretti Autosport have announced teams as well. Hamilton says he will not be part of the X44 driver lineup and he won’t take a direct operational role in team.
Extreme E will race electric vehicles in five remote locations that are already damaged or severely threatened by melting ice caps and deforestation among other things damaging the planet.
The series is scheduled to begin in Senegal in January.
