When it comes to Formula1, it’s Lewis who pops up in every racing fan’s mind. But it sent shock waves when he shared a heartbreaking post on Tuesday in Instagram of retiring from his racing.
He started saying that he is tired of everything and it’s still under confusion whether he is hinting on his recent fall in F1. Lewis wrote saying: “Honestly, I feel like giving up on everything. Shut down completely,” and “Why bother when the world is such a mess and people don’t seem to care. “I’m going to take a moment away to gather my thoughts. “Thank you to those of you who do give a damn about the world.”
Adding to this he said that: “Extinction of our race is becoming more and more likely as we overuse our resources. “Agriculture farming is the largest pollutant we currently have by over 50 percent, far more than our travel industry combined. “I’m sad to see so many people, even close friends, ignore what is happening daily. “We were taught that eating animal products was good for us, but we’ve been lied to for hundreds of years. “I want my life to mean something, and honestly up until now my life has had no meaning.”
Besides, the racer is still on the deal with Mercedes which is till the end of 2020 but this statement has raised brows. Later the same day he removed the post but the fans couldn’t get over this.
Lewis usually motivates his followers with positive quotes especially regarding veganism. Earlier before 2 days, the champ had brought home the 6th successive cup from the Japanese Grand Prix. Apart from this, he has his participation in the 6th drivers’ Championship which is to be held at Mexico the following week.
