Lewis Hamilton says he is happy to see his former team-mate Valtteri Bottas “feeling more and more a part of himself and knowing where he wants to go”.

Since leaving Mercedes at the end of 2021, Valtteri Bottas seems to have been getting more and more relaxed with his style and the way he carries himself.

When asked about Bottas’ newfound level of comfort, Lewis Hamilton said he is happy to see his former team-mate “flourish”.

“It’s great, I just saw Valtteri in flip flops right now with his tan lines around his socks, his sock line,” Lewis joked.

“It’s great to see him flourish and feeling more and more a part of himself and knowing where he wants to go.

“I think just for everyone, it’s a whole discovery process, isn’t it? Compartmentalising and just making space for happiness away from the track.

“I think probably the same applies to everyone here, all of us work so hard, we’re all travelling so much, we’re all away from our families and friends so much that we’re missing out on a lot of things.

“What are you doing to make time for yourself, and for something that makes you happy?

“I think that’s such an important thing for mental health, to make sure you find something that you love, whether it’s taking a language course or playing an instrument or playing football, whatever it may be.

“It’s cool that he’s got his things that he’s doing, I wish him all the best with it,” Hamilton concluded.
