Mercedes came to Brazil without their pilot-star, three-time Lewis Hamilton. From the team, alleging personal reasons in the absence of the English, and the brazilian media began to wonder if it would dispute the grand prize or lose it because of health problems. Finally, it was the pilot himself who clarified the situation, and did so by a message in Instagram accompanied by a picture of himself on the plane heading to the penultimate race of the year. Hamilton explained that, in addition to overcome a fever, was involved in a traffic accident, and it was the decision of the doctor and his medical team can delay your trip one more day.
Dear TeamLH team (Lewis Hamilton). I just wanted to let you know why things have been a bit silent on the social networks in the last few days.
I have not been well with a fever, and I also had a traffic accident in Monaco on Monday night.
Although ultimately it is not a matter of anyone, there are people who know my position and try to take advantage of the situation and make a quick buck. There is No problem. No one was hurt, and that is the most important. But the car was obviously damaged and I had a light contact with a parked vehicle.
I Spoke with the team and my doctor, and together we decided that it was better for me to rest at home and leave a day later. I feel better and I am currently on board on the plane to Brazil.
however, let me tell you because I feel that we must all take responsibility for our actions. Mistakes it happens to all of us, but what is important is that we learn from them and we can grow.
I can’t wait for the weekend in Brazil.
Thus, Hamilton is already in Brazil. There want to achieve to win finally, after many attempts. His desire is to dedicate the victory to his idol Senna, to overcome the 21 victories on different circuits that have him and Vettel and the 18 in large different awards, which is now tied with Prost. Neither the fever nor the accident have been with him, and will be the favorite to take the victory on Sunday.
