Lewis Hamilton has message for former rival Sebastian Vettel after F1 return confirmed


Lewis Hamilton has welcomed back Sebastian Vettel to the F1 grid ahead of his return to racing at next weekend’s Australian Grand Prix. Hamilton posted a message to Aston Martin’s lead driver on his Instagram story as he recovers from coronavirus.




Hamilton said: “Covid is no joke, welcome back.” The message also included a prayer emoticon and a picture of Vettel shared by Aston Martin.




Yesterday, Aston Martin confirmed Vettel will race in Melbourne after missing the first two races of the season with Covid.




A Twitter statement said: “We are pleased to confirm that Sebastian Vettel is now fit to race and will therefore line up alongside @lance_stroll in Melbourne to kick off his 2022 @F1 season at the @ausgrandprix.”




Ahead of the race in Jeddah, Aston Martin has earmarked Melbourne as the date of Vettel’s return to the team. Vettel took part in the pre-season test in Bahrain but tested positive days before the first race.



Despite feeling better, he was also unable to race in Saudi Arabia.
