Lewis Hamilton looked very fatigued and unwell when he got out of his car at the Hungarian Grand Prix, and during the podium celebration. Here are the updates on his condition.

Lewis seemed to be gasping for air at points, and even though he managed to give the post-race interview and be at the podium celebration, he later missed out on the media sessions.

Mercedes has provided an update on his condition via their social media channels.

“[Lewis Hamilton] is currently seeing the team doctor, suffering from fatigue and mild dizziness,” wrote the team.
