Hamilton in "road accident"

NEWS STORY
12/11/2015

Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he was involved in a "road accident" on Monday night.

Following days of inactivity on social media, and in the wake of media claims that he would miss the Brazilian Grand Prix, the Briton took to Instagram to give his side of the story to his fans.

"Just wanted to let you know why things have been quiet on social media the past few days," he wrote. "I've not been well with a fever but I also had a road accident in Monaco on Monday night.

"Whilst ultimately, it is nobody's business, there are people knowing my position that will try to take advantage of the situation and make a quick buck. NO problem.

"Nobody was hurt," he added, "which is the most important thing. But the car was obviously damaged and I made very light contact with a stationary vehicle.

"Talking with the team and my doctor, we decided together that it was best for me to rest at home and leave a day later.

"I am feeling better and am currently boarding the plane to Brazil. I am informing you because I feel we all must take responsibility for our actions. Mistakes happen to us all but what's important is that we learn from them and grow. Can't wait for the weekend Brazil."

Earlier today, in response to claims in the Brazilian media, a Mercedes spokesperson dismissed the media speculation, claiming that Hamilton was "feeling unwell" and had been advised to cancel an earlier flight which led to him missing a press conference in Sao Paulo.
