Mercedes welcomes back Lewis Hamilton after absence from social media

Mercedes has welcomed Lewis Hamilton back to the team after an almost two-month absence from social media.

Following weeks of speculation about Lewis Hamilton’s future in Formula 1, Mercedes has welcomed the Briton back to social media, a move that seems to confirm Hamilton’s stay in the sport.

Lewis Hamilton turned off all social media after last year’s season-ending race in Abu Dhabi where he missed out on a seventh championship in controversial circumstances.

According to relevant sources and rumour mills, Hamilton’s departure from F1 could be the outcome of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the end of the 2021 season where the seven-time world champion lost the title to Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Mercedes boss, Toto Wolff acknowledged that Hamilton grew disillusioned after the final result at the Yas Marina circuit and he wasn’t sure if the Mercedes driver would return to action this year. it’s probably understandable why he felt that way.

On Saturday, Hamilton broke his 55-day silence with a simple social media statement that simply stated, ‘I’ve been gone… I’m back!’ featuring an image of himself With the Grand Canyon in the background.

 Lewis Hamilton later jetted back in the UK and he shared a short video of him out on a run with trainer Angela Cullen in London on Tuesday morning, and Mercedes has now responded with its own post expressing their joy that he has returned.

Hamilton is shown beaming in front of a wall of social media comments from supporters, all expressing their joy that he has returned, while wearing his race outfit and clutching his helmet.

A tweet from tennis legend Serena Williams can be seen in the top-right corner, which reads “I love you brother, so much.”

The message from Mercedes was straightforward: ‘Welcome back, @lewishamilton,’ along with an emoji of hands clasped in prayer.

Hamilton’s departure would have been a huge loss for F1, especially in these circumstances, but it appears that there will be no such development for 2022.
