LEWIS HAMILTON has vowed to “come back stronger” after a disappointing start to the 2022 season.

Hamilton, 37, is currently 58 points adrift of championship leader Charles Leclerc after a slow start to the campaign.

He has been heavily criticised, and some fans have even been left wondering if he will make it to the end of the year without retiring.

However, the seven-time world champion has since responded to his doubters, insisting that he uses the harsh words as “fuel”.

He said: “People always love you when you’re up, and love to kick you when you’re down – and that’s a part of life.

“We are going to come back stronger as a team.

“Four, five, six, seven, ten bad races are not going to stop me doing what I love doing. They’re not going to stop me in my tracks.

Hamilton has been at the centre of attention heading into this weekend’s Miami GP.

He has been very clear in his disapproval of the FIA’s new ban on jewellery and even threatened to pull out of the upcoming race due to irremovable piercings.

The Mercedes driver also shocked F1 fans when he compared the Miami circuit to a B&Q car park.

After Friday’s practice rounds, he said: “The track’s quite nice to drive except for the chicane.

“It reminds me of being in a B&Q car park when I was six years old/seven years old, in a go kart, going in between cars.

“It’s a corner where maybe in future they can remove that one and it will improve the track.”
