Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, who accused stewards of seeking to stop him winning at last weekend’s Russian Grand Prix, says he is “only human” and will continue to learn.
In what read like a veiled apology, but did not refer directly to the race in Sochi or the stewards, the Mercedes driver posted a message on Instagram thanking his fans for their support.
He writes: “I may not always get it right in the face of adversity.
“I may not always react the way you want me to when tensions are high, but I am only human after all and I am passionate about what I do.
“I’m learning and growing every day, and I’ll take my lessons and keep fighting on to the next one. Thank you to those who continue to support and are right there fighting with me.”
