As noticed, the lack of any mention of sexuality in their statement while adopting a rainbow is a bit eyebrow raising. I'm sure they know it, and know how bad many of the countries F1 visits are. I hope they do more in the future once we start racing again, and don't just keep it as a supportive statement while the world is focused on these issues.
And yet they use the rainbow as a symbol, which everybody understands as Symbol for LGBT.
But you are right, they should include that in their written texts as well.
Have everyone here got issues with basic comprehension??? Do you really need everything explicitly spelt out for you because you can't wrap your heads around the phrase "any form of discrimination"? Or are you just that desperate to find something else to be offended by?
Do you have anything of substance to discuss regarding the actual initiative or are you just going to stay hung up on the wording of a press release?
Jean Todt, President of the FIA, said:
The “New Deal” I propose for motor sport in the context of COVID-19 pandemic means laying the foundations for the recovery and a sustainable future for Formula 1 and other disciplines. It includes new rules to reduce costs as well as initiatives to increase the popularity and accessibility of motor sport. Importantly, it shall also harness the positive contribution motor sport brings to society, covering all sectors from health, safety, economy, environment, education, inclusion and diversity. This is the intention of the #PurposeDriven Movement we launched last Thursday, and I am very pleased to welcome the #WeRaceAsOne initiative as part of this collective effort. With Formula 1, we have already been committed for many years to helping to protect the environment with, for example, hybrid engines and the signing of the United Nations Sports for Climate Action Framework. The FIA is guided by the Fundamental Principles of its Statutes, including the fight against any form of discrimination and notably on account of skin colour, gender, religion, ethnic or social origin. We must promote diversity in motor sport.”
