Why Did Lewis Hamilton Made an Extended Public Appearance?
Lewis was delusional about his comeback, according to a few major sources. He had given up hope and had lost faith in the Formula One governing organization. The FIA’s decision to suspend Michael Masi is a beacon of hope and faith for him.
Lewis didn’t give any interviews before declaring on social media that he has come back and he will be fighting for the eighth world championship title. He made an extended public appearance, raising questions about whether or not he will return after the 2021 season.
When he was asked about his long break he stated that he was taking one day at a time. Lewis was not happy with the results he admitted it took him a hard time accepting that he lost his fair chance to win a world record.
“I’ve come back to battle for that eighth (champion), that’s what I’m here for,” Hamilton, who had a two-month break from social media before returning in February. Many people believe he has a good chance of winning this year because he has so much to make up for.
According to the 37-year-old driver, he was born and raised by his mother until he was 12 years old. He feels that, just as both parents go to great lengths to raise their children, they both have a right to the child. It’s unjust to simply carry on your father’s name.
