‘I may not always get it right in the face of adversity… I am only human’: Lewis Hamilton backtracks after accusing ‘bull****’ FIA of ‘trying to stop’ him with two five-second penalties in Russian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton has taken to social media to seemingly distance himself from his claims that he was being picked on by the FIA after being hit with two five-second penalties at the Russian Grand Prix. Hamilton was raging when he learnt of the sanctions mid-race – he was going for his 91st career victory, which would have equalled Michael Schumacher’s record. and after the race, he said that race officials are ‘trying to stop me’. Lewis Hamilton complained about the officials after the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday. But now, on social media, Hamilton has taken a more considered tone on what happened. Hamilton had been under investigation before the race had even begun after he did two practice starts outside of the designated zone. After the race Hamilton said: ‘I’m pretty sure nobody has got two five second penalties for something so ridiculous before. Sunday’s race director Michael Masi insisted there were no special rules for Hamilton.
