The Briton is known as someone who has always advocated equality, togetherness and promoted love. “I think Lewis opened a lot of doors for all of us and it’s important to say, without him, it would be different these days.
I think the mentality has changed slightly, especially if you look to other sports, NBA in the States it’s very different I think people have a lot more space to express themselves."- Gasly said, as quoted by crash.net!
Pierre Gasly on Hamilton
Gasly is someone who has enormous respect for Hamilton. He told him that many times. Lewis Hamilton is one of the few who, in addition to his F1 career, advocates other things and promotes positive stories on the F1 scene.
Although there are many who are against it, Hamilton does not look back on such things. “I’ve always told him [that I respect him]. Actually I get on very well with Lewis, I often thank him for sticking to his values and to himself all these years because now it’s definitely made the path smoother for us young drivers”.
