It’s the 24th April and this is F1Minute.
The FIA have launched the “EveryRace” campaign, which appears to be an evolution of the previously announced Racing Against Racism initiative. The campaign took shape after an incident during winter testing that saw some racist behaviour towards Lewis Hamilton, and it aims to highlight the fact that “there is no place for racism in our sport or our society.” Visit everyrace.net for more information.
Hamilton, meanwhile, has said he isn’t anticipating any problems this coming weekend in Spain, says he always gets on well with the Spanish fans and he’s looking forward to a good race.
Elsewhere today, David Coulthard has been giving his opinion on the new rules and regulations, saying that he doesn’t believe reducing downforce and running slick tyres will give the audience the show it wants. He said more needs to be done, such as improving how the cars run through dirty air, before we start to see the increased overtaking that we want. He doesn’t go on to say how this could be achieved, though.
That’s all for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
