Lewis Hamilton narrated in his account of Instagram that the delay of your arrival to Brazil was due to health problems and a traffic accident suffered in Monaco. In the words of the pilot, we tried “a light contact with a parked vehicle“. The Palace of Justice in Monaco reported that the british resbalaron the feet of the pedals, brake and clutch and hit three parked cars, although he said that he was not under the influence of alcohol: “Passed an alcohol test with negative results”. Despite the fact that Mercedes recommended that the three-time not to talk about what happened in the streets of the Principality, on his arrival at Interlagos were many who wanted to know, in the words of the protagonist, what had happened to impact your Pagani Zonda with parked vehicles.
In statements to the british media, which collects Autosport, Hamilton explained the causes of the accident: “Was the result of a great feast after a week and a half of little rest. I don’t feel as good as it looks, but honestly I feel already much better”. A calendar loaded with publicity events and trainings, joined the celebration of the 60th birthday of his mother was the cause of the discomfort of Lewis and the forgetfulness of the accident. “I’m a little clueless. I’ve been non-stop and trying to train at the same time and not spending a lot of time in sleep”, acknowledged the Mercedes, and yet rested: “The last two days I have slept too much. I could not believe how much I slept. I slept on the plane for the trip also. Normally I sleep four or five hours, but when you train you need more than that”.
The difference of only a few days between the Grand Prix of the united States and Mexico meant that the drivers and teams had to work without rest for several days in a row, but in the case of English, furthermore, had to stay in Mexico for different acts: “Usually I am a very energetic, but with the work week after Mexico and too much drink at the party I felt really bad”. Despite the information that came from Brazil, however, was never absent from the penultimate round of the championship: “I Never considered not coming. I have never considered ever not run for my entire life. In 22 years of experience, I have not missed any race”. Almost fully recovered and more eager than ever, Hamilton maintains, therefore, its status of favorite to victory at Interlagos.
