Hamilton battled mental “demons” during tough 2019 F1 season

Hamilton said his sixth title, a fifth in six seasons with Mercedes, came after the “hardest year” for the team that put it on an “emotional rollercoaster” ranging from Lauda’s death in the week of the Monaco Grand Prix, to contesting the Mexico weekend without his regular race engineer Peter Bonnington.
Hamilton admitted the loss of the “crucial” Lauda hit him more than he thought it would and said that Hubert’s death, which he saw happen on television just after F1’s qualifying session had finished at Spa, was also complicated to deal with emotionally.
