Hamilton insists, however, he’ll be in touch with F1’s power brokers in a bid to again “raise awareness” of the battle against racism and discrimination.
“It’s a shame that’s what’s needed over there to get a reaction,” said Hamilton. “But that is in America and I don’t know if really me doing anything here will particularly have any effect.
“We’re in Belgium, we’re not in the United States. I haven’t spoken to anyone about it but I am really proud with so many out there and I do stand unified with them.
“Trying to do what I can over here, I don’t really know how us not doing the race, it will still go on, is a thing.
“But I will try to speak to Formula 1 to see what else we can do to continue to raise awareness. Naturally as a sport, I think we all need to be aligned, supportive of each other, even though it’s a different sport.”
