The reason for the vanishing act
Hamilton was denied his eighth world championship in highly controversial circumstances. The incidents at Yas Marina was an absolute farce, and one that left a bad taste in the mouths of fans.
The 37-year-old’s last message on F1 radio was “This has been manipulated, man,” perfectly summing up the race. Since then, he has been silent regarding the issue, and has not commented anything on his various social media accounts.
F1 reporter Craig Slater stated that the ball was in the FIA’s court, saying, “(Mercedes) believe the onus is on the FIA to deliver on the pledge they made before Christmas to investigate the happenings on that final lap.
“Come up with some findings, they want to see something tangible from that investigation, and they want to see it sooner rather than later.”
