Lewis Hamilton Breonna Taylor after claiming Sunday’s trophy.
Formula1 racing authority FIA is investigating whether driver Lewis Hamilton broke F1 rules when he wore a T-shirt in support of Breonna Taylor at Sunday’s Tuscan Grand Prix, an FIA spokesperson told the BBC.
Taylor, a Black emergency technician was shot and killed in her Louisville home by police executing a no-knock warrant on March 13. Calling to arrest the officers involved in the shooting has become a popular rallying cry of the Black Lives Matter movement.
F1 has previously allowed drivers to support both political movements and anti-racism. In July, F1 created the #WeRaceAsOne initiative to address inequality and racism. All 20 drivers work Black Lives Matter shirts, including Hamilton, who continued to wear the shirt before every race.
