The Knight has his fair share of fans and haters. However, Lewis revealed that the booing does in fact get to him, as he is only human. Nevertheless, he aims to use it as his fuel, and prove the doubters wrong.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Mariana Becker at Jornal da Band, he said, “I definitely didn’t feel safe to speak about it, that’s why I was nervous. Cause each race, today, that I have, there isn’t one I don’t get booed. I’m the only driver that gets booed, every single race.”

“I’m not gonna lie, I mean, I’m only human so of course [it affects me]. Of course I hear it,” Hamilton explained.

The Mercedes driver reflects on the Mexican Grand Prix

Hamilton suffered another defeat this season at the hands of his arch-rival, Max Verstappen. He felt the Red Bulls were the dominant ones at the Mexican GP, and even stated that he pushed himself to the limit.

He said,“Their car was far superior this weekend and there was nothing we really could do about it. I gave it absolutely everything and even obviously a great fight with Sergio at the end, but I’m really grateful I was able to at least get a second.”

“I feel positive in the sense that I had a good race. I did it with the car that I had and the car was not good today,” Hamilton concluded.

Now with the much-awaited Brazilian Grand Prix just days away, Hamilton would be hoping to bounce back and turn the tables in the title race. What are your predictions for the race at Interlagos? Let us know in the comments below.
