F1 drivers to hold talks over Black Lives Matter support ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix
F1 drivers are going to discuss how to support the Black Lives Matter movement
F1 drivers will discuss taking a knee to support the Black Lives Matter movement before the Austrian Grand Prix during the drivers’ briefing on Friday. The drivers are expected to go down on one knee around the Austrian national anthem before the race.
And Lando Norris has revealed talks have already taken place on the show of support and will be firmed up on Friday.
Norris said: "Some of the drivers have already been speaking [about taking a knee]. If we are going to do it, we should all do it.
"It will be discussed following the drivers' briefing with the Grand Prix Drivers' Association on Friday. We will do whatever we can to show that we care and respect everyone. We will do what is right when the time comes."
The F1 season finally gets underway this weekend after the start to the season had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus.
The drivers were preparing to start in Australia back in March before having to put a stop to proceedings.
Now they are set for a shortened season with only eight races scheduled so far. The first two will take place in Austria before a race in Hungary and then a double header at Silverstone in the UK.
