Lando Norris has said he cannot accept doing ‘nothing’ on racial injustice after Formula One announced it would be moving on from taking the knee. McLaren driver Norris joined Sebastian Vettel in hoping racers can come together to find an alternative as they feel action is still required. 

“The [knee] gesture was important for the ones that believed that was an important gesture, because we need to respect everyone,” F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali told Sky Sports. 

“But now is the time to move on and take some other action. The action is the focus on the diversity of our community, and this is the first step. 

“We are committed to increasing diversity and opportunity within this incredible sport.” 

But some drivers have feared not doing anything could be counter-productive. Aston Martin’s Vettel has expressed ‘surprise’ at the decision.

He said: “No, they just changed. I was a bit surprised. I think the issues that we’re tackling are not going to be gone within two years. And therefore I was a bit surprised. 

“I hope that as drivers, we find a way to get together and find a slot of still expressing topics that are important to us. 

“Probably not all the drivers care, but I think there’s some that really do care. And it’ll be great to get together. But probably it was getting a bit too strong and individual for the business side of things.” 

And now, Norris says he hopes drivers can come together to decide how to take a stand against discrimination. 

“I think there are other ways to go about those means and stand up for whatever matter it is, to inspire kids, to raise awareness for issues and different matters. 

“I think it doesn’t have to be that but I’m not too sure yet. It is something that we will speak about as drivers, something we will speak about with Formula One and I’m sure it is something they are thinking of, you would hope anyway, as Formula One with the audience we have. 

“I’m sure that they haven’t done it for nothing so we’ll see. We will speak about it and we’ll make sure there are things in place because I definitely still support Sebastian on the side if it’s worth doing things. 

“Whether it’s just before the race or it’s another time at the start of the weekend or inviting people to the weekends, we will wait and see. But I can’t accept doing nothing.”

Ruud van Nistelrooy makes next job decision as Man Utd plan coaching appointment

That decision failed to pay off, however, with the Red Devils sacking Moyes after just 10 months in charge.

After the current West Ham boss came Van Gaal, who arrived with big things expected due to his past success at the likes of Barcelona and Ajax.

Giggs was hoping to get the Red Devils job himself, which was why he stayed, but both ended up leaving nearly six years ago.

When Jose Mourinho took over, he opted to maintain his close relationship with Rui Faria – who had previously worked under him at clubs such as Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Fair departed in the summer of 2018, though, with Michael Carrick then given a place on Mourinho’s bench.

Carrick stayed to work under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the Norwegian also regularly picking up the thoughts of Phelan and Kieran McKenna throughout his spell in the dugout.
