Lewis Hamilton has pledged to take a season-long stance in his fight against racism after the second race in Austria.
A victorious Hamilton performed a black power salute on the winner’s podium after having taken a knee for the second successive race with some of his fellow drivers.
But the new championship leader said he and Formula 1 needed to do more for the remainder of the 2020 season.
“What we do moving forwards I really don’t know,” he said. “But what I can say is that this is not it. Us taking a knee at the start of the race and having a black car doesn’t solve the problem.
“It helps continue to raise awareness but we have a whole season, a whole year and it’s a constant fight that we all have to do. We can all chip in and do our part and have a positive impact in our environments.
“We together need to set a great example for the world that is watching in fighting the injustice and inequality. I’ll get there. I won’t give up.”
F1 chairman Chase Carey has pledged $1million (£783,000) to improve diversity in the sport, while motorsport governing body the FIA has put forward £900,000.
But Hamilton called on the authorities to back up their financial contribution with firmer action: “Although it is great to see Chase being so kind to donate the million dollars, and it has been great to see the FIA step up, if you don’t know the problem you don’t fix it and a million dollars doesn’t go that far.
“A lot of work needs to go on in F1 and the FIA really needs to be a part of it – and the drivers too.”
Hamilton’s stance was backed by his entire Mercedes team, who also took a knee before the national anthems at Sunday’s race, which Hamilton won comfortably in a dominant performance for a team one-two ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas.
And Mercedes boss Toto Wolff admitted he, the rest of the team and wider F1 needed to do more.
He added: “We need to respect everyone’s point of view. What we know though is not being racist but being silent is not enough.”
