Lewis Hamilton Reveals He’s Quit Alcohol in Bid to Boost F1 Performance

Hamilton Cites Peer Pressure as Reason for Giving Up Alcohol

Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion, has made the decision to give up alcohol in an effort to transform his fortunes in the sport. In a recent interview with Vogue, Hamilton revealed that he has gone sober and has been feeling much better and more clear-headed since making the change. The British racing legend cited the peer pressure to drink within a social setting as one of the reasons behind his decision.

Hamilton's Quest for Improvement

Hamilton's decision to quit alcohol comes as he continues to seek ways to improve his performance on the track. The 38-year-old, who recently launched a non-alcoholic tequila drink, expressed his desire to find that extra one percent and get back to his best following Red Bull's dominance in the past two seasons. Hamilton acknowledged that there is pressure to drink in social settings and admitted that he has felt that pressure himself, even at his age.

Challenges in the Current Season

This season has been a challenging one for Hamilton and his team, Mercedes. Currently lying in third place in the World Championship standings, Hamilton has faced frustration and disappointment. The recent Brazil Grand Prix was a particularly tough race for the Silver Arrows, with Hamilton finishing eighth and his teammate George Russell retiring. In contrast, Red Bull's Max Verstappen has secured the world title with an impressive 17 race wins and a commanding lead of 524 points.

Upcoming Races

The Formula 1 season is nearing its end, with two more races left on the calendar. The penultimate race will take place in Las Vegas on November 18, followed by the season finale in Abu Dhabi on November 26. It remains to be seen how Hamilton's decision to quit alcohol will impact his performance in these final races of the season.
