Lewis Hamilton is gearing up for the new Formula One season after sharing a video of his morning run through the streets of London on Instagram.

 

 

After losing out on last year’s championship to Max Verstappen in controversial circumstances in Abu Dhabi, Hamilton’s social media silence sparked rumours that the Mercedes driver was set to retire.

However, he 37-year-old returned to social media on Saturday and his most Instagram story suggests he isn’t ready to quit anytime soon.

Hamilton looked just moments away from winning what would have been a record breaking eighth drivers’ championship in Abu Dhabi when a safety car was brought out late in the race.

Race director Michael Masi made the controversial call to let the drivers between Hamilton and Verstappen only to unlap themselves and get the race going with one lap to go.

Hamilton could do little to stop Verstappen who had a clear run at the Mercedes driver and on much fresher tyres, as the Dutchman soared past to take his first drivers’ championship.

Hamilton looks like he has spent time in the United States since the end of last season, posting images of him at the Grand Canyon and also a shot of New York.

His run in London comes after he was given the green light by planners to build a bigger front boundary wall to boost security at his £18million London mansion.

The seven-time world champion wants to replace railings with a taller, solid barrier at the front of his six-bedroom pad with new entrance gates.

He was given the go-ahead by officials at Kensington and Chelsea Council after no objections from neighbours.

Hamilton previously sparked a row with residents over plans for a new summerhouse which they said would block out natural daylight.
