F1 champion Lewis Hamilton sparks concern over his wellbeing with ‘giving up’ post
Lewis Hamilton has raised fears among the Formula One fraternity after posting a cryptic social media message in which he says he is ready to “give up” on the world.
The British superstar, who is on the brink of clinching his sixth F1 world title, missed out on victory at the Japanese Grand Prix last weekend.
It is unclear what Hamilton’s worrying post is referring to, although the 34-year-old has recently been vocal on Instagram over his attempts to avoid damaging the planet.
Hamilton, who turned vegan in his bid to improve his lifestyle, wrote on Instagram: “Honestly, I feel like giving up on everything. Shut down completely. Why bother when the world is such a mess and people don’t seem to care.
“I’m going to take a moment away to gather my thoughts. Thank you to those of you who do give a damn about the world.”
Hamilton immediately received support from his fans with one posting: “I hope you’re okay Lewis. I just saw your Insta story. We’re all here for you. Love you.”
The Mercedes driver recently urged his fans to boycott shows featuring marine animals and called on them to educate themselves about the “horrible” things that happen to animals in captivity.
He wrote: “So I’m back in Japan, one of my favourite places in the world. One of the most beautiful, peaceful wonderful places,” he wrote.
