Let’s not accept abuse within the framework of sport, but let’s be the ones who will make a difference for future generations ”Lando Norris On the other hand, Lando Norris has also continued this line and joined the measure. “I support the social media boycott this weekend.

Charles Leclerc The Ferrari driver was not far behind and used his Twitter account to join the blackout. “This weekend, I will join the boycott of social media to support others against the abuse, racism and hate people face online. It’s time to change. Stop online abuse, ”said Charles Leclerc.
