Lewis Hamilton is very upset with Red Bull and especially with the declarations de Helmut Marko, who made fun of him for implying that he was in bad shape after his accident with Verstappen in Monza and the next day he attended the MET Gala in New York “in a funny outfit”.
Specifically, the always controversial Red Bull adviser said that “the whole incident did not put his life at risk. If Hamilton had had serious neck pain or any problems, he would not have gone to New York the next day in the funny outfit he appeared in. If you get into a seven-hour flight with a neck injury after an accident like that, it shouldn’t have been that bad. “
Today, on his arrival in Sochi, on the eve of the 15th grand prix of the season in Russia, Lewis Hamilton He has assured to be in “perfect physical condition” and has made it clear that he cares little or nothing about what I say Marko: “I do not listen to that individual”, said the British seven-time champion. “It is natural that when a car falls on your head you have some kind of discomfort. As I said then, I felt a little pain after the race and went to get checked. I did not say that I was dying. Of course, I was aware of That in a millisecond anything can happen. And for that I was grateful that I was not hurt badly. We move on. Fortunately I have nothing to show for the incident in Monza. I have worked a lot with my trainer Angela: yoga, massages, acupuncture and also strength training, I’m fine “, has begun Hamilton, which is 5 points behind the leader Max Verstappen.
“It will be exciting this weekend. It will not be so easy now, we have a strong competitor this year who is the same as us, if not stronger. And it could also rain, according to the forecasts,” he summarized Lewis, who has put the pressure on his rival Verstappen: “Obviously, he won’t admit it, and I’m not going to make a guess, but I remember how it was when I had my first title fight and it’s definitely increasing. It was difficult. It was intense. I went through a lot of different emotions, and I didn’t always handle it in the best way, and that’s to be expected. There is a lot of pressure: you are working in a great team. There are a lot of expectations and pressure, because the desire to win is enormous. So I empathize with Max and understand it. But I know we will continue to grow from this. “
Hamilton He is aware that after the fights to the limit in Silverstone and Monza, there may be more battles that end off the track this year. That is why he has issued a warning to Verstappen: “We all have to be smart and know that there is a moment when you are not going to make a corner, and it is about making sure that you live to fight in the next one. And it is really through experience that you find that balance, And you know that not everything is won in a corner. Like I said, I know what it’s like to have your first fight for your first championship, and you win. And you go through a lot of different experiences and emotions during that time. “
