Sebastian Vettel wearing a pride t-shirt and facemask at the Hungarian Grand Prix over the weekend.

Wasn't just him either. Carlos Sainz, Lance Stroll and Valteri Bottas (who is the other half of Australian Cyclist, Tiffany Cromwell), also took a stance.

Fair fucking play

F1 drivers though.

Living in the most exclusive circles on earth, advertising either oil or cars during a climate breakdown every weekend.

great they got rainbow t-shirts i suppose, F1 must be totally sound.

I was highlighting the pinkwashing side of it, i mean the t-shirts were literally printed and distrubuted by F1 to show people that they were sustainable and ethical. The stance came from F1:

'We Race As One' is a platform launched by Formula One last year that counts diversity, inclusivity and sustainability as its core principles.

Drivers are free to wear apparel with a message that is supportive of the initiative's principles

Also sorry scutter for wading in and trashing your thread. I'm sorta working background with this kinda thing these days and very tuned to it.

I'm not totally ruling out sebastial vettel being possibly sound.

my question was somewhat rhetorical. Of course its ok. And it doesn't need to be justified with 'yeah, because.....'

I hope we never get to a point where we have to have suffered something to be permitted to be actively against it.

here - its not sound that female track athletes are pretty much running round in their bra and knickers while their mail equivalents are wearing shorts and vests.

I met a sound woman yesterday out walking her dogs. She lives on a boat, which I'd noticed knocking around the place looking lived on.

It's mad the way some people just smile at you and walk up to you and start talking, and I think very sound.

I'd be a bit leery of that kind of thing. I'd basically never just stroll up to a woman and strike up conversations. Actually no, if there's lads building a stone wall, or doing some trade and they're killing it, I'll tell them their work looks lovely.

But I don't think I'd smile and chat to strangers, especially not females because it would a bit much. But I'm quite happy when people do that to me. Around here a fair number of people just start chats with me, I like it.
