See Lewis Hamilton Message To FANS As He Returns To Social Media With A New HAIRCUT

LEWIS HAMILTON missed out on landing a record eighth F1 title last season.

Lewis Hamilton has featured in a Mercedes video to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The 37-year-old can be seen donning a new haircut alongside new team-mate George Russell in the video which has been posted on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Hamilton has kept a low profile since seeing his dreams of landing a record eighth F1 title go up in smoke in December.

The Briton appeared set to win the final Grand Prix of the season in Abu Dhabi and win the title before the race descended into chaos.

Williams’ Nicholas Latifi crashed into a wall in the latter stages of the season finale and a safety car was deployed.

Hamilton stayed on the track during the delay to keep his lead but his title rival Max Verstappen pitted for fresh tyres.

Lewis Hamilton has featured in a Mercedes video to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The 37-year-old can be seen donning a new haircut alongside new team-mate George Russell in the video which has been posted on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Williams’ Nicholas Latifi crashed into a wall in the latter stages of the season finale and a safety car was deployed.

Hamilton stayed on the track during the delay to keep his lead but his title rival Max Verstappen pitted for fresh tyres.

Race director Michael Masi then allowed five cars which had come between the two protagonists to overtake and move out of the way.

Verstappen was then bizarrely given permission to pull level with Hamilton for a one-lap shootout as the race restarted.

And the Dutch driver took full advantage of his fresh tyres to finish first and win his maiden F1 championship.

Hamilton and Mercedes were outraged by the events in the desert, with the Stevenage-born superstar then opting to swerve the FIA gala in Paris at the end of the season.

Rumours began to circulate that Hamilton would turn his back on the sport and announce his retirement before the new season.
