Lewis Hamilton admits 'some days I feel like stopping' but quells F1 retirement talk with beach run before Australia GP | The Sun

SIR LEWIS HAMILTON has admitted that he feels like "stopping some days" but urged fans to keep on fighting in an uplifting message.

The F1 legend has struggled over the past year in an uncompetitive Mercedes car after years of dominating the sport.

The 38-year-old has had to watch helplessly while Max Verstappen begins his own era of success in an unstoppable Red Bull car.

Few will be surprised if the Dutchman waltzes to another race win at this weekend's Australian Grand Prix.

But ahead of the third Grand Prix of the season, Hamilton took to Instagram to inspire his fans with a stirring post about not giving up.

The star jogs shirtless across a beach as he tells his fans to "have a good week".

And in the caption he adds: "Some days I feel like stopping. When I start to feel this way I dig deep and remember I’m on a mission. 

"Whether you realise it or not, you’re on a mission too. We’re all chasing something.

"Some dream or goal that will make us better people, make our lives more fulfilling, and make us proud of ourselves.

"Some days it’ll feel impossible to get there, but it’s not. We can get it. We will get it.

"I know you’re with me, I feel the love and support and just know I’m sending it back to you tenfold. We got this."

Hamilton was within a lap of securing a record-breaking eighth F1 title in the final Grand Prix of 2021.

But then one of F1's most controversial moments ever occurred as safety car rules were not followed by former race director Michael Masi and Verstappen overtook the Brit on the final lap of the Abu Dhabi race.

Since then sweeping technical changes has seen Mercedes fail to engineer a car that can keep up with rivals.

Rumours have swept through the paddock in the recent weeks of a potential Hamilton switch to Ferrari or even Verstappen's Red Bull team.
