Lewis Hamilton revealed that he’s “missing racing every day” before pushing a more positive message in a lengthy Twitter post.
Unlike many drivers, the Mercedes man has largely stayed out of the public eye since the Formula 1 season was postponed, steering clear of Esports.
He has however continued to be active on social media, creating headlines with an Instagram story he later deleted last week.
He’s also maintained his presence on Twitter, and, in his latest post to the site, he revealed his current state of mind regarding the coronavirus pandemic and its effect on racing.

“I miss racing every day. ” Hamilton said.
“This is the first time since I was eight that I haven’t started a season. When you live and breathe something you love, there’s definitely a big void.”
However, his post then took a more positive turn as he listed the benefits of the current situation before encouraging his followers to come out of it better.
“Right now, we all have time in the world to reflect on our life, our decisions, our goals, the people we have around us, our careers,” he added.
“Today, we see clearer skies all over the world, less animals being slaughtered for our pleasure simply because our demands are much lower and everyone staying in.
“Let’s come out of this as a new us, a new reinvigorated you, fitter, healthier and more focused but above all, kinder, more generous and gracious and caring for our world and the people in it. I hope we all do.”
