In an interview with The Telegraph former Scottish F1 driver David Coulthard expressed his opinion on what ahead for his fellow Britt Lewis Hamilton. He said Lewis Hamilton will be bored about people saying he was robbed in Abu Dhabi. Etc.

I think he (Lewis Hamilton) will be bored with everyone saying to him, ‘You were robbed, Lewis!’ or ‘You’re the people’s champion, Lewis’! He’ll be avoiding even having those conversations,” David Coulthard said.

David Coulthard went on to say that he has a lot of thinks to deal with in 2022 like getting over the pain from Abu Dhabi, the need for FIA assurance of fairness, his ambitious new teammate George Russell and a Max Verstappen who will be full on confidence for 2022 adding that it will be big job for Lewis Hamilton to deal with.  

That’s the other thing Hamilton has to deal with. He has to get over the pain of Abu Dhabi, and he needs to be reassured by the FIA that everything is going to be fair. And then he needs to deal with a hotshot new teammate, and deal with Max Verstappen, who’s going to be high on confidence of course. It’s such a big job for Hamilton,” David Coulthard added.
