"On the top, this is why the whole reason that the helmet has changed its colour, the suit has and also the car," as Hamilton points to the Black Lives Matter Logo.
"It's supporting equality above all and just really continuing to solidify that important message as we currently have the mic and people are starting to listen so it's an opportunity to push that message and really hold people accountable.
"Brands and teams in Formula 1 and everybody needs to be held accountable, and open to educating themselves and be open to understanding why the Black Lives movement is happening and why around the world we need to be pushing our equality.
"It's not good enough, even if someone says to you 'we've been doing something' or 'we've been trying', they need to try harder because it is still a big issue that the world is fighting 60 years later after Martin Luther King was fighting for it and gave his life."
