FIA launches "Racing Against Racism" campaign

Following the recent racist incident targeting Lewis Hamilton at an F1 test session in Spain, the FIA has announced the creation of a new anti-racism campaign. Called "Racing Against Racism", the effort will launch, appropriately, at the upcoming Spanish Grand Prix, sending local motorsport organizers as well as observers around the world an even clearer message than before that intolerance will not be tolerated in F1.

Although it remains unclear at this point what the campaign will entail, the FIA has opened the doors to F1's "stakeholders" – including drivers, teams, circuits and motorsport associations – to sign on to the effort. McLaren, whose driver was the target of the incident that started it all, was the first to pledge its support. The FIA is also anticipating the launch of "Rallying Against Racing", a parallel program in the World Rally Championship.
