Lewis Hamilton U-turns over Covid mask decision with 'a lot of people getting sick'
July 12, 2022 - Lewis Hamilton has performed a COVID-19 U-turn by deciding to once again wear a mask. The Briton, who has won a joint-record seven F1 world titles, was seen sporting the face covering last weekend at the Austrian Grand Prix and has since stated “a lot of people are getting sick.”
“I noticed a lot of people around me are getting sick and I definitely don’t want to get sick again”
“No one’s wearing a mask so I’m definitely wearing my mask. I urge people to do what they want to do. It’s your health at the end of the day - but I want to go home healthy. I want to be able to get up and train and do the things I love doing. I try, if I can, to keep the people that I love around me also safe when I can, when I’m around them.”
