Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton kept his cool amid the mayhem caused by an unpredictable circuit, winning a crash-marred Tuscan Grand Prix for the 90th win of his career to move one behind Michael Schumacher’s record.
But Hamilton’s focus was elsewhere as he stood on the podium on Sunday wearing a T-shirt featuring the words: “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.”
Taylor was a Black emergency medical worker fatally shot by police serving a narcotics search warrant in her home in Louisville, Kentucky on March 13. The shooting has sparked months of protests with calls for the officers to be charged over her death and Taylor’s name has spread to protests against racial injustice around the world.
“Justice for Breonna Taylor,” Hamilton said during his interview after winning. (Aljazeera)
