F1 driver Lewis Hamilton after the criticism: “I’m the one who decides when it’s ready”
Lewis Hamilton has reacted in his own way to the criticism of his person after the last race at Imola.
In Italy, the seven-time world champion only finished thirteenth. Not only was Mercedes teammate George Russell fourth, Hamilton was also put on a lap by winner Max Verstappen.
It caused some criticism of Hamilton and his performance also led to laughter. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff spoke up for the British driver and said he must drive a car that is virtually uncontrollable. Mercedes also supported Hamilton on social media on Wednesday with the text: Legend is built over time.
Hamilton himself wrote on Instagram: “Working on my masterpiece, I’ll be the one to decide when it’s finished.” Loosely translated, Hamilton says he is working on his masterpiece and only he can determine when it will be finished.
Red Bull’s top adviser said with a quip that after the Imola race, the thought might have crossed Hamilton’s mind that he should have stopped after last year. Sir Lewis remained silent for a long time during the winter, after he lost the world title fight to Verstappen in Abu Dhabi. He decided to continue and has a contract until 2023.
