Lewis Hamilton stands for LGBTQ rights even if that means jail or dead

Lewis Hamilton has celebrated with Mercedes fans the 10 years since his move to Mercedes, with whom he has won as many as six Formula 1 titles.

The 38-year-old discussed about several moments from his long career with the F1 team, including the honour of having another great champion such as Sebastian Vettel next to him when he began competing for the title.

Lewis took the opportunity to stress that despite the F1 restrictions, he will continue to use it as platform in his battle for human rights.

"For me, it is mind blowing that we live in a time still where there are so many countries around the world but particularly there are a lot of human rights issues in the Middle East," Hamilton noted.

"Women's rights, LGBT rights, there are laws that restrict people from being their true selves. I have always been a risk taker. I am going to do this whether or not they throw me in jail, I don't care what they are going to do, I am going to stand for something I believe in even if it kills me."

Thanks Lewis! Proud of you!
