Hamilton last month announced the devisal of a commission bearing his name which will investigate why there is a lack of diversity in motorsport and provide more opportunities to a broader array of people.

Hamilton has admitted, though, that $ 1m represents a fraction of the money which needs to be spent on supporting the fight against discrimination.
