As racing resumes in Belgium, Lewis Hamilton delivers an update on his condition.
Lewis Hamilton has issued an update on his health ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix, after seeming obviously concerned on the podium in Hungary four weeks ago.
After experiencing dizzy during the spectacular Hungarian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton has said he is no longer concerned about his health. The Brit was spotted shaking from side to side on the podium as Esteban Ocon and Sebastian Vettel celebrated after climbing from the rear to finish a very respectable P3.
The German was later disqualified, allowing Hamilton to claim second place in the official classification despite his obvious distress.
This weekend, Formula One returns from its four-week summer holiday, with drivers competing in the Belgian Grand Prix.
Hamilton is focused on retaining his Drivers’ Championship lead after his trip to Spa-Francorchamps.
Hamilton told reporters, “I’ve invested time over this period of time just trying to make sure I’m in the ideal shape.”
“I do feel like I’m in better form as the season progresses, and it’s not a concern for me.
“We are still in the midst of this pandemic around the world, and I continue to emphasize the necessity of people being safe. Naturally, as you wander around, you’ll notice more and more individuals relaxing, but the infection is still around.
“We’ll stay in our bubble, and I’ll continue to focus on my health and making sure I keep getting stronger over the rest of the year.”
Max Verstappen, who assumed control of the title battle early in the season, is now eight points behind Hamilton in the Drivers’ Championship, while Red Bull is 12 points behind Mercedes in the Constructors’ Championship.
The Dutchman crashed out of the British Grand Prix and finished eighth at the Hungaroring, giving Hamilton the opportunity to reclaim the championship lead.
Hamilton acknowledged that his team had to overcome challenges and setbacks early in the season, and he was looking forward to the summer vacation to get some much-needed relaxation.
The seven-time world champion, on the other hand, is eager to go back behind the wheel of his Mercedes.
The 36-year-old continued, “The break was undoubtedly much needed, but it felt too long at the end.”
“I was definitely looking forward to getting back to work and missing working with the guys and being in the car.
“I was clearly very interested in being quiet.” Brinkwire Summary News”.
