Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff has given six-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton his full backing for his passionate condemnation of racial injustice after the death of George Floyd.
Hamilton spoke to millions of followers on social media of his rage and disbelief at the killing of the unarmed black man, who died in Minneapolis after a white US police officer knelt on his neck. Wolff told reporters that his racing driver, Formula One's first black champion, had taught him a lot about racial inequality.
"He has asked me the question once: 'Have you ever had the active thought that you are white?'," said the Austrian.
