Although the Briton won three out of the opening four races, he trails his Dutch rival by 18 points in the driver’s championship. To make things worse, Mercedes look to have no answers for Red Bull‘s rapid pace at the moment.

While the championship battle continues to intensify, Hamilton took some time out to reach out to his fans. To thank them for their continuous support, the Briton uploaded a collage of various tattoos on Twitter.

While some fans tattooed his signature ‘Still I Rise’ slogan, a few others tattooed the number 44 to show their support. Along with the collage, Hamilton wrote a few words as well.

TOGETHER WE RISE. Team LH forever. Your support means the world to me!”

However, the Silver Arrows provided an encouraging update earlier this week where they mentioned the current car will improve despite their focus towards the 2022 season.

Although these improvements may take time to work their magic, fans could see a more competitive Hamilton on July 4. In a season where the Briton looks to claim a record-breaking eighth championship, the odds seem stacked against him for the first time in a long time.
