Lewis Hamilton stepped back into the paddock of the Formula 1 after a week. The Briton recovered from his coronavirus infection (COVID-19) and this Thursday he was allowed to fly quickly to the Yas Marina circuit to be able to be in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. After missing the last test, Hamilton spoke of the sensations of being active again.
The free practice sessions weren’t bad for Hamilton, considering he went a week without training. In the first part of Friday he had it a bit off, since he finished in fifth position, although not far from Max Verstappen. On the other hand, in the second round he recovered again and was two tenths behind his partner, Valtteri Bottas.
After the practice sessions, Hamilton approached the press to give his feelings on the track. “It felt like a first day back to school. It definitely took me a minute to get used to the first session, and then in the second I think I was still guiding myself, but it wasn’t such a bad thing, ”said the seven-time champion.
On the other hand, the Briton commented that he does not set goals for this weekend, in which the 2020 Formula 1 championship ends. “I just wanted to come here and enjoy this weekend and what I do. A lot of work has been done in the factory by everyone, and it has been a privilege to run with them this year, ”he added.
Finally, the current champion congratulated the work he did George Russell In his replacement and highlighted the week without activity was something to highlight in his life. “I think George did an amazing job, and everyone knows it. In my 27-year career, I have never missed a competition. So yeah, one day, I’ll write a book about it. But like I said, I’m grateful to be back, “he said.
