An interactive summary of The Hamilton Commission’s report on Black people in UK motorsport

Lewis Hamilton recently launched The Hamilton Commission to examine the Black underrepresentation within UK motorsport. But rather than just display the findings from the report, he also wants to find ways to improve recruitment and working conditions for Black drivers.

This research-led report explores the barriers and challenges facing Black people on their journey through education – focussing specifically on STEM subjects and engineering – and ultimately into UK motorsport.

The Commission set out to develop a set of practical, actionable recommendations that would improve the representation of Black people in UK motorsport.

I like the interactivity of the report summary, as things like this can often become verbose and difficult for the general public to absorb (see any UK government report on racism). I also commend the proactivity and hope to see the improvements Hamilton and his team have laid out.
