Kimi Räikkönen has had it with all the questions about the anti-racism discussions in Formula 1. When asked a question about kneeling against racism during the press conference at Silverstone he reacts irritated: "Why do we have to justify ourselves again?"
The fact that drivers are against racism has little to do with whether or not they kneel for a Grand Prix. The Finnish driver has had it with all the questions about the discussion: "We are all against racism, but we are here, primarily, for the sport itself."
Both Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi did not kneel at the anti-racism moment. The Alfa Romeo rider shares the opinion of his Italian teammate: "I don't think anyone has to explain why he's kneeling or not, it's his own choice. I share his opinion." (Photo: Alfa Romeo Racing)
