Lewis Hamilton put together an admirable performance at Hockenheim, winning from 14th place on the grid in conditions that were challenging and tricky.
Hamilton was lost for words after the race and was extremely emotional as he had put in a lot of his heart and soul into winning from that back in the grid.
However, Hamilton wasn’t quite impressed with the media coverage he received, especially from the Sky Sports pundits, who he felt weren’t pointing out the things that Lewis was doing differently in order to move up and stay up during the rain.
He had put up an Instagram post about the pundits not able to find anything good to say about Lewis after his heroic comeback win.
Now, Rosberg too is on the Sky Sports punditry team and it is quite apparent that Hamilton and Rosberg don’t quite share a good relationship, especially after Rosberg’s title winning season in 2016, which sparked a lot of controversies and heated moments.
So much so that, it was reported that Hamilton had gotten Rosberg off post-race duties for the German GP.
Hamilton reinstated his anger towards the pundits before the Hungarian GP and it seemed as if a lot of it might be directed towards Rosberg.
“I had just re-watched a race that felt so great in my heart, but there were certain things that weren’t perceived that way, certain things that were missed,” Hamilton said.
“It wasn’t being explained properly, the difference I was making, the different lines that I would choose.
“As we had former racing drivers commentating, I would have thought that they’d pick those things out, but they didn’t.” Hamilton said.
Hamilton then went onto highlight the mental stress about being in a championship battle and staying in that zone for 9 months in a year.
“You don’t see us away from the track, and that is the most demanding thing, keeping your mind in the game from March to November, arriving every weekend 100 per cent,” Hamilton said.
“I can honestly say that I haven’t been able to do that every time.
“I do take a lot of pride in being a perfectionist and not making mistakes.
“This year, it is swinging more in Ferrari’s direction.
“The pressure to extract every last millimetre is greater than ever if I want to be No 1 at the end.” he added.
