Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has conveyed an emotional message to his fans after the disappointment of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix where he was only able to end P10.
The Stevenage-born driver spoke about his mental health in recent times in a heartfelt message on social media.
“It’s been such a tough year already with everything that is happening around us,” Hamilton wrote.
“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 let you know it’s ok to feel the way you do, just know that you are not alone and we are going to 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

“Be bold, be strong, be you, you are beautiful in every way, let’s be great together. Hope our paths cross someday, in this life or the next. I’m sending you love and light and positivity for your weekend.
