Mercedes confirms illness but Hamilton will race Brazilian GP

Mercedes on Wednesday dismissed rumours Lewis Hamilton could sit out this weekend’s Brazilian grand prix.

The new triple world champion cancelled a scheduled press conference at a hotel in the south of Sao Paulo on Wednesday, citing following unhealthy condition.

Subsequent reports indicated Hamilton is not well, and Mercedes confirmed that it had to “switch some sponsor activities around” because of his late arrival.

“Hamilton is not going to miss the race,” a Mercedes spokesman said. “He’s going to be a day late… the doctor advised him to cancel the earlier flight so he missed a press conference today.”

But as for the suggestion the Briton might miss the Interlagos race, the team said that is “Not true”.

“Lewis is arriving a little later than planned,” Mercedes said on Twitter, “but (it’s) nothing more than that.”

In eight exertions Hamilton has never won the Brazilian Grand Prix, the home of his legendry F1 hero Ayrton Senna.
