Ever since Lewis Hamilton has signed his much-awaited contract with Mercedes, may fans have put their money on the Brit to win another Championship and break the record all for once. Having said that, the wait for Hamilton’s announcement seemed never-ending. In simpler terms, the longer the negotiations went, it looked more and more like he would be without a race seat for 2021.
After the contract was signed, a lot of fanatics suggested that Hamilton was not happy with the terms of the contract extension. But Hamilton broke his silence on February 12 and came infront of his fans on social media. The Mercedes driver also ended his message on an uplifting note, giving his fans something to look forward to.

Hamilton gave an explanation for his brief absence. On Instagram, he said, “Hey guys, sorry I’ve been absent from here for a while, I’ve been focusing and preparing for the season ahead.”
“I consider myself lucky to have had this time to reflect and prepare. I remain positive and excited for the season ahead but want you all to know that I’m thinking of you out there, hoping you are well.
“I miss so many of you and can’t wait to hopefully see you again soon if not in person then online. But one thing is for sure I’ll be racing my heart out for you this year!”
The Briton is already amongst the older drivers on the grid, and he’ll be 37 by the time the 2022 season comes around. Does the last line in this message indicate towards his retirement from the sport after the successful completion of 2021 season?
