“The Formula 1 has done a much better job after many discussions, a lot of the discussions last week on how we could come together and make it better . What you have been able to see, it is much more professional,” he replied. But he also took the opportunity to throw a jab at pilots who do not kneel , centering especially on the Russian Kvyat and Spanish carlos Sainz.

“I’m Not going to say what is my opinion on what each one needs it or not, but if you look at other sports, look at basketball, football and Spanish teams, Italian and from all over the world, regardless of the nationality or the mixtures that you have, so do all states.

There are players from Russia and Spain that make it , ” he said.

When the reason for not doing so is how you think you will feel or how it would be perceived in your country , all you have to do is to look at the other sports because they are doing it. I hope that we can gradually come together more and more,” he concluded.
