Mexico City: Mexican Formula One driver Sergio “Checo” Perez joined yesterday a campaign by the Mexico Grand Prix opposing US President Donald Trump’s plan to build a border wall.
The racetrack’s Twitter account shows a photo of the Force India driver under a banner that reads “#BridgesNotWalls” at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez speedway along with people holding the Mexican flag.
“It represents many Mexican motorsport fans’ views currently, it’s a call to action inviting fans to build bridges, not barriers,” the Grand Prix organizers said in a statement that does not mention Trump’s name but is clearly directed at his wall plans.
