Lewis Hamilton fears he has Long Covid after struggling with dizziness, fatigue and blurred vision at both Silverstone and the Hungarian GP as he arrives late for his press conference due to attention from a team doctor

Lewis Hamilton has revealed he is still suffering the effects of Covid-19, eight months on from first testing positive for the virus. Hamilton, who finished third in Budapest following a thrilling 70-lap Hungarian Grand Prix, showed the first sign of concern when he needed assistance to step on to the podium. Asked if his fatigue issue is related to the Covid-19 diagnosis which ruled him out of last season’s Sakhir Grand Prix, Hamilton said: ‘I haven’t spoken to anyone about Long Covid but I think it is lingering there. ‘I was having real dizziness and everything got a bit blurry on the podium,’ Hamilton said, when asked to recount the moments on the podium. Hamilton, who himself spoke out this week against ‘cowardly’ anti-LGBTQ+ laws in Hungary, defended Vettel.
