Lewis Hamilton crash has come and go, the champion is alive and well. His car is not sharing the feelings, though. The Formula 1 leader’s road incident took place in Monaco.
News about the accident broke out after the champion himself detailed why he arrived a day later for this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix on his personal (official) Instagram account. “I’ve not been well with a fever but I also had a road accident in Monaco on Monday night,” Hamilton explained.
“Nobody was hurt, which is the most important thing. But the car was obviously damaged and I made very light contact with a stationary vehicle. Talking with the team and my doctor, we decided together that it was best for me to rest at home and leave a day later.”
“I feel good, I’m on an up slope, so a lot closer to 100%. I’m excited to be here. I’m definitely cherishing the moments I’m in the car,” the Formula 1 champion told the media gathered at the Interlagos track.
The champion’s sincerity was overwhelming after what must be one of the most candid testimony of late. “I am informing you because I feel we all must take responsibility for our actions. Mistakes happen to us all but what’s important is that we learn from them and grow.”
Lewis Hamilton already claimed the 2015 Formula 1 Champioship title three races before the end of the season, at the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
