Hamilton mentioned that this was the first time he tried to fly on his back, something he didn’t expect. The 36-year-old didn’t have a great Monaco Grand Prix and he utilised this opportunity to relax before the next competitive race. On his official Instagram handle, Lewis Hamilton wrote, “After this, I went to spend time in the wind tunnel to practice. I’ll post that next to show you my progression.” Hamilton, after his time in the air, will be hoping to focus on the race in Baku. However, Dutch racer Max Verstappen is in the pole position with 105 points and will be hoping to extend the lead on Hamilton in Baku.
