Lewis Hamilton has criticised the Formula 1 community for "staying silent" after the death of American George Floyd, with the six-time champion saying he is "one of the only people of colour yet I stand alone".
"I see those of you who are staying silent, some of you [are] the biggest of stars yet you stay silent in the midst of injustice", he posted to Instagram.
Hamilton, the only black driver in F1's 70-year history, called out the "white-dominated" industry Sunday for its silence during the turbulent times.
The death of George Floyd has led to both peaceful and violent protests across America, forcing some regions to impose curfews, with protests also taking place in other countries.
The Mercedes driver warned: "I know who you are and I see you" as he accused his fellow drivers of "staying silent" following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, during his arrest in Minneapolis.
"It is our responsibility to speak out against injustice".

"Seeing the news the last few days has left me saddened", wrote Renault star Daniel Ricciardo.
At this point that only takes the form of words on social media platforms, but Hamilton's comments are hopefully the spark to instigate real change, and F1 should be grateful to have him.
"Racism is toxic and needs to be addressed not with violence or silence but with unity and action", the Australian wrote on Instagram. I'm one of the only people of color there yet I stand alone.
"Now more than ever we need to stand together, unified together".
"We stand with you Lewis", the team said.

Don't be silent. I stand #BlackLivesMatters. And they were not too afraid to speak up and talk to their audience, whether they felt stronger to do so because of Hamilton's original message or not. "I have power through this to lead and inspire so many".
'There can be no peace until our so called leaders make change. "We are not born with racism and hate in our hearts, it is taught by those we look up to".

It's not the first time the White House has not been the first to notify the American people of Trump's calls with Putin. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday Russia will not be included in the G7, disagreeing with Trump.
Considering players countered with scheduling 100 to 114 games, it stands to reason the sides may find middle ground around 80. As ESPN's Buster Olney reported Sunday, there is division among the owners themselves when it comes to whether to play at all.
