Lewis Hamilton was seized with vertigo before fainting on Sunday August 1, 2021, after the Hungarian Grand Prix where he won third place. While the race was very intense, he was very tired on the podium. Once he saw the doctor, he still went to a press conference and reassured the journalists. “I’m fine. Yes. I had real dizziness and everything got a bit blurry on the podium,” he responded, with a weak voice. “I fought all year to stay healthy after what happened at the end of last year, it’s a real battle,” continued the 36-year-old Briton. Indeed, Lewis Hamilton contracted the coronavirus in November 2020. He then assured to have lived one of the hardest weeks of his life.

Is it a form of long Covid? The Formula 1 champion does not yet know. “I haven’t told anyone in particular about it, but I think it’s persistent,” he said all the same. “I remember the effects back then. The training has been different since then, and the fatigue levels are different. I just keep trying to train and prepare in the best possible way.”

Has Lewis Hamilton already contracted the coronavirus?

At the same time, Lewis Hamilton revealed that he had already felt these sensations a few weeks ago at the end of a race. But this time around, the effects were bigger. “Who knows what it is today. Maybe it’s a hydration issue, I don’t know, but I’ve certainly never had this experience before. I’ve had something similar. at Silverstone (two weeks ago), but this was much worse. ” There is no doubt that he will be followed and that he should undergo further examinations.
