Lewis Hamilton admits he struggled with his mental health after Abu Dhabi heartbreak in 2021 and believed he was not ‘good enough’ to win in F1 again – before his emotional British Grand Prix victory

Lewis Hamilton bravely opened up on his mental health battle in the wake of his Abu Dhabi title heartbreak in 2021 and admitted he did not feel he would win a Formula One race again after celebrating his sensational British Grand Prix triumph.

An emotional Hamilton ended an agonising 945-day winless streak after winning for a record ninth time at Silverstone on Sunday and broke down in tears as he reflected on his raw, rollercoaster journey back to the winner’s circle.

His victory marked his first since Saudi Arabia in December 2021, the race that preceded his agony in Abu Dhabi, where Max Verstappen denied him an eighth world crown in one of the most contentious races in the history of motorsport.

 

The 39-year-old had fallen victim to a human error by former race director Michael Masi and suffered from personal demons in the wake of the controversy.

‘It is the adversity that we have gone through as a team, and the adversity that I have personally experienced,’ Hamilton told reporters at Silverstone.
