Seven-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton is widely regarded as one of the greatest racing drivers of all time. In a recent Instagram post, the British racing driver shared his personal recovery technique for overcoming mental hurdles and negative thoughts.

Hamilton’s message is clear: negativity isn’t real, and we can all overcome our mental obstacles with the right mindset.

Hamilton, who has over 32 million followers on Instagram, took to the social media platform to share a powerful message about the power of the mind. In his post, he shared photos of himself working out in a gym and relaxing in a hot tub afterwards.

The captions read: “What does it mean to be motivated? For me it means choosing to push myself to be better in all things. In our work, in creativity, in life overall. Motivation means taking care of ourselves, training both mind and body, and working toward progress no matter how small it may seem.” 

“I’m no stranger to tough days. When they come, it feels impossible to push on. That negativity isn’t real, it’s all in the mind and I know you have it in you to overcome it.”

Lewis Hamilton is prepared to challenge for his 8th F1 title

With the Azerbaijan Grand Prix kicking off today, Lewis Hamilton has set his sights on challenging for the Formula One title. Since the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the British racer’s form has deteriorated. His team, Mercedes AMG Petronas, is at fault to some extent for this, because of their car.

Hamilton couldn’t even manage a podium finish since that race until most recently, where he secured third place in the Australian Grand Prix. He was also often outperformed by his teammate, George Russell.

Nevertheless, with the champion mentality that he possesses, we can expect to see Lewis Hamilton bounce back in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
