British F1 driver Lewis Hamilton gave an update on the back injury he suffered during the Baku GP in Azerbaijan because of the proposing of his car. Hamilton struggled to get off his car after the feature race on Sunday. The Mercedes racer won the driver of the day award for his performance as he finished fourth after starting seventh on the grid. 

The Brit posted a story on his Instagram account where he thanked his fans for their support. His story said, "I cannot express the pain you experience, especially on the straight here. In the end, you are just praying for it to end. We are in such a good position still in 3rd and 4th. It is a great result and the team did well with the strategy. Once we fix this bouncing we will be right in the race because we are losing for sure a second just with bouncing."

“On the way to my team to work with them on improving”

“[My] back is a little sore and bruised but nothing serious thankfully,” Lewis Hamilton said. I’ve had acupuncture and physio with Ang [Angela Cullen, his physio] and am on the way to my team to work with them on improving. We have to keep fighting. No time like the present to pull together and we will. I’ll be there this weekend, wouldn’t miss it for the world. Wishing everybody an amazing day and week,” he continued. 

“I'll be honest it looks terrible and feels 100 times worse”

"Seeing online that a lot of people are concerned about me with how awful it looked out there today. It means so much that so many of you are sending love," he wrote on social media.

"I'll be honest it looks terrible and feels 100 times worse. Definitely, some recovering and hard work with the team to do before Montreal to overcome this hurdle. Feeling better already, though, and motivated my to keep pushing. See you next week."
