Lewis Hamilton Hits out at Criticisms after German GP

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton was unhappy to find that some F1 pundits undermined his ability behind the wheel.

The 4-time world champion posted a message on his Instagram account accusing them of negativity. However, he later deleted the post mere hours after his victory in the German Grand Prix. His main grouse was against the commentators working for Sky Sports.

Sky Sports usually broadcasts the F1 races in the UK and in Australia. Hamilton had issues with the channel’s presenters. These included ex-F1 drivers Damon Hill, Martin Brundle and Nico Rosberg.

He wrote: “I never get to watch the races but just got home and watching Sky. I find it amusing listening to ex-drivers commentating, not a single one of them could find a good word to say.

“Whatever the reason is, it’s OK I forgive you. Positivity and love wins always no matter what words you use to try and undermine me, I started 14th today and finished 1st. God is good all the time.”

Incidentally, Rosberg posted a video on his own profile coming out in support of his former teammate after his sensational drive.

According to Rosberg’s video message, Ferrari star Sebastian Vettel’s crash at Hockenheim has left him going through “one of the darkest moments of his career”.

Furthermore, he advised Vettel to never underestimate Hamilton. Rosberg dubbed Lewis the king of the comebacks.

Rosberg said: “It was surely one of the darkest moments in Sebastian’s whole career.

“What an unbelievably dark day for him. It is his home race and he had the chance in his hands to win it and take a big lead in the championship, but he chucked it away in the wall.

“That is so, so bad and it is going to be very tough for him. But it was phenomenal from Lewis and Mercedes. They nailed it.

“Fighting back. Never write off Lewis. He always comes back and that’s a fact. He showed it again by taking home the win.”
