Hamilton suffered Monaco car accident

Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has revealed that part of the reason for his delayed arrival in Brazil ahead of this weekend’s race is that he was involved in a minor car accident on Monday.

The Brit delayed his flight to Sao Paulo for the Brazilian Grand Prix by a day this week, with his Mercedes team saying he was unwell.

However, Hamilton has taken to Instagram to explain the full reasons for his delayed departure for Brazil.

A picture of Hamilton on his private jet appeared alongside the post. The 30-year-old is expected to arrive in Brazil on Thursday.

Dear TeamLH, just wanted to let you know why things have been quiet on social media the past few days. 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, 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. But i am feeling better and am currently boarding the plane to Brazil. However, 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?? Bless Lewis

“But I am feeling better and am currently boarding the plane to Brazil,” he added.
