In an Instagram post, seven-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton said anybody who is struggling mentally should realise that they are not alone and there should be a brighter future.
The British star wrote: “It’s been such a tough year already with everything that is happening around us.
“Hard some days to stay positive. I have struggled mentally and emotionally for a long time, to keep going is a constant effort but we have to keep fighting, we have so much to do and to achieve.
“I’m writing to tell you it’s ok to feel the way you do, just know that you are not alone and that we are gonna get through this!
“A friend reminded me today, you are so powerful and you can do anything you put your mind to! We can do anything we put our mind to.
“Let’s remember to live in gratitude for another day to rise. Sending you love and light.”
The 37 year old did not explicitly mention the circumstances that have left him low-spirited, but world events have impacted all walks of life, including Formula One in 2022.
Formula One’s Russian Grand Prix has been cancelled this season due to the military invasion of Ukraine, and conflict struck close to the heart of motorsport, just as the Covid 19 restrictions is being relaxed.
