Lewis Hamilton returns to running as he steps up his recovery for Canadian Grand Prix after back trouble in Azerbaijan… with ‘stretching, acupuncture and cryo each day’

Lewis Hamilton has revealed the grueling recovery and training regime he is working through in order to be fit for the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend. According to Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff, there had been doubts of whether the 37-year-old would be fit to race in Canada, but Hamilton has shared his new routine, which includes rounds of acupuncture, cryotherapy and stretching – as well as jogging in the rain. After Sunday’s race in Baku, where the problem was clearer than ever, the FIA stepped in in an attempt to eliminate porpoising, which other teams have struggled with too. And whilst Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate George Russell was welcoming the comments from the governing body, Hamilton was stepping up his recovery. After finishing fourth in Azerbaijan, Hamilton said:  ‘There were a lot of moments when I didn’t know whether I was going to make it and if I was going to be able to keep the car on track,’ Hamilton said after finishing fourth.
