‘If you think what you saw at the end of last year was my best, wait until you see this year’: Lewis Hamilton comes out fighting as he admits he ‘lost faith’ in F1 after Abu Dhabi drama… but never really considered retirement

Lewis Hamilton finally opened up on the anguish he has concealed from the world since he slipped unnoticed out of a bulb-lit Abu Dhabi paddock two months ago after controversially losing out on the championship to Max Verstappen. It took time to digest what happened and it is still difficult to fully understand everything, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. ‘I didn’t watch the race back,’ said Hamilton, who appeared relaxed throughout his media duties on Friday. Now, I don’t want to go backwards and see it — I want to go forwards. ‘We cannot change the past, and nothing will ever change how it felt at the time. We need to see action and it will take time but I am not focused on that area at the moment. ‘I am just putting every ounce of my energy and time into making sure I am the best you have ever seen.’.
