Vettel showed his support for the 'BLM' movement 

In 2020, many African American athletes joined the worldwide movement ‘Black Lives Matter’. As the only African American driver in F1, Hamilton also took a knee and joined the movement. During that time, Vettel showed great support for Hamilton and supported the movement along with Hamilton. Vettel did not have a social media account. Hence, he used the hashtag of the movement on his helmet.

Hamilton further said, “He (Vettel) told me that some teams were talking racist things about me. He got down on one knee with me in 2020, I have yet to see a driver as brave as him. Laws must be changed so that people live better. We are risking our lives to try to educate others.”
