Ahead of the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton said he “couldn’t say that I necessarily wanted to be here”, but then he focused on something “that is so, so important”.

During his interview with Channel 4, ahead of the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was asked if he felt any anxiety when he returned to the Yas Marina Circuit, after what had happened there last year.

“It didn’t feel great walking in here,” Lewis said.

“I don’t know, I couldn’t say that I necessarily wanted to be here. If I’m really honest, since I’ve been in my room, I’ve been getting my head down into preparation.

“I’ve generally been really focused in this past week [ahead of the 2022 Abu Dhabi GP], and most days anyways this year, [on] just trying to make sure [I remember something] that is so, so important, I think, for everybody.

“We get caught up in all these different things that we’re experiencing, and [we’re] forgetting just to be living in gratitude.

“That’s something you’ve really got to remember, because there are so many people that are having a difficult time, way, way worse times. There’s so many people that are struggling.

“It could be so, so much worse, and it’s just [important to] always remember to live, be grateful for a new day, a new chance to be better, a new chance to challenge yourself and shape the future.

“That’s what I’m focused on right now so, again, whatever negative feeling I have, I try to take it, brush it aside and move forward,” Hamilton concluded.
