Unemployed Lewis Hamilton reveals ‘lots going on’ as £40m Mercedes contract talks rumble on and F1 season gets nearer

LEWIS HAMILTON has delivered an update on his health since recovering from Covid-19 – but is saying nothing about his Mercedes contract.

The unemployed star is out of contract and has yet to sign new terms with the Silver Arrows.

He’s currently away – presumably at his home in Colorado – where he gave an update on his winter training ahead of the new F1 season.

The 36 year-old was and was forced to miss the Sakhir GP, while his weight dropped four kilos.

However, he is now upping his training regime in the mountains after revealing the details on his Instagram.

Hamilton said: “Hey World, I haven’t been on here for a while. I’m in the mountains training every day, getting my mind and body right.

“I’m hiking to the top of the mountain every morning. 3 of those hikes I cross country ski once I get to the top which is at 3400m – killer!

“I love altitude training, there is less oxygen high up so working out is much harder than at sea level, just walking up the stairs you feel it at 2000m.

“Normally when I finish training here and return to sea level running is such a breeze.

“I’m trying to find the right balance in cardio and strength building. On top of that, lots of work is ongoing in the background.

“Many moving parts but just checking in to let you know I’m doing good, I’m healthy and mentally strong right now in my bubble.

“I hope you are staying as positive as you can with all that is still going on. Keep your head up. I can’t wait to see you all again at some stage soon. Sending you love and light.”

Mercedes say they have no concerns that the seven-time world champion will not commit to the team.

But this is an unusual position to be in given contracts are normally resolved around August.
