- Lewis Hamilton claimed he was ‘back to being young’ after Canadian Grand Prix
- The 37-year-old finished third despite suffering serious back trouble last week
- Hamilton said being on the podium was ‘overwhelming’ given his ‘battle’ with car
Lewis Hamilton finished third in the Canadian Grand Prix and declared: ‘I am back to being young again!’
A week after struggling to climb out of his Mercedes in Baku after being bounced around in the cockpit, the seven-time champion’s back pain had vanished.
Having finished behind Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, the 37-year-old Briton said: ‘It’s quite overwhelming to get this third place. It’s been such a battle this year with the car, but we continue to stay vigilant, focused and never give up. That’s something I’m proud of.
