The Austrian implied the German RTL that Hamilton seemed to be exaggerating the pain in his neck after the recent crash at Monza, as a day later he was already present in New York at the MET Gala.
“But I don’t pay much attention to people’s statements,” Hamilton said. “It’s very logical that you have some discomfort if a car hits your head … I was in some pain, but immediately after the race and throughout the week I had the necessary treatments and acupuncture and I also did a lot of yoga. I didn’t say I was dying, no. I was very grateful to have gotten out of the car without any serious injuries. “

Hamilton hopes that this year there will be no more incidents between him and Max Verstappen. “I think we will be stronger and we will learn from that. We are both professionals. I know what it’s like to fight for your first title and the pressure it brings. We all have to be smart and compete hard but fair. ”
