‘I’m back!’: Lewis Hamilton FINALLY breaks his social media silence having not posted since he controversially lost the Formula 1 world championship to Max Verstappen in the final race of the 2021 season

Lewis Hamilton has broken an eight-week social media silence as rumours about his future in Formula 1 continue to swirl. Verstappen, on fresh tyres, easily overtook a defending Hamilton to achieve race victory and with it, his maiden Drivers World Championship. Mercedes and their team principal Toto Wolff were left furious by the result and it was Wolff who first cast doubt on the likelihood of Hamilton returning to the sport. The 50-year-old Austrian said he and the team’s star driver were ‘disillusioned’ with the sport following the controversial safety car that led to Hamilton’s defeat. Wolff also did not confirm whether Hamilton would be back in the Mercedes seat for 2022 despite having a contract with the team until the end of 2023.
