Formula 1 bosses are investigating whether Lewis Hamilton’s T-shirt highlighting the shooting of Breonna Taylor broke rules. Hamilton wore the shirt before and after winning the Tuscan Grand Prix on Sunday.
The FIA are investigating Lewis Hamilton for his T-shirt splashed with the message “arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor”, which he wore before and after his win at the Tuscan Grand Prix on Sunday.
The words “say her name” and a photograph were on the back of Hamilton’s shirt.
Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was killed by police officers who burst into her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky, in March.
One police officer involved was fired by the city’s police department in June. Two other officers have been placed on administrative reassignment. No criminal charges have been filed against any of the three.
“We can’t rest, we can’t… we have to continue to raise awareness with it.”
US Open champion Naomi Osaka wore a face mask with Taylor’s name on it – one of a series of masks she wore on her way to the title.
