Lewis Hamilton says he misses racing every day and has become “big dysfunctional” in his life by not being able to start his quest to win the seventh Formula One World title.
There have been no F-1s this year due to the coronavirus epidemic and the French Grand Prix scheduled for the end of June was the last competition to close on Monday.
F1 chief executive Chase Kerry is confident that the season could start with the Austrian Grand Prix in July and hopefully 18 races will be possible.
Hamilton, who is again the champion with Michael Schumacher’s record tail title, is itching to get behind the wheel of his Mercedes.
And the British hope that once the COVID-19 crisis is over, people will have a different outlook on life.
I miss racing every day. For the first time since I was 8 years old I haven’t started a season. When you live and breathe something you like, when it leaves there must be a large void. But from these times should always be positive. In this moment, we all have time to reflect on life, our decisions, our goals, the people around us, our careers. Today, we see clear skies all over the world, less and less animals are being slaughtered for our pleasure because our needs are much less and everyone stays in it. Let’s not go back the way we came back in this difficult time, let’s come out with a better understanding of our world, changing our personal preferences and habits. Let us publish it as a new, a new resurrected you, fitter, healthier and more focused but above all, kind, more generous and compassionate and caring for our world and its people. I hope we all do #Wikandothis #together #eworld #neuwandelweisolator together
