Hamilton takes to social media amid Marko comments

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has seemingly responded to questions about his F1 future with a determined social media post.

Lewis Hamilton has taken to social media to share a post that appears to be a response to comments and questions over his future in F1. Hamilton and Mercedes endured a particularly tough Emilia Romagna Grand Prix weekend, with both cars dropping out in Q2 in qualifying and the seven-time World Champion failing to score in either the Sprint or the main race. Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko subsequently remarked that Hamilton might be thinking "he should have stopped last year", a comment branded as a "cheap shot" by ex-F1 driver Johnny Herbert.

Hamilton: I'll decide when my masterpiece is finished

While he made no reference to any specific comments, Hamilton took to social media on Wednesday night with a purposeful message. "Working on my masterpiece. I'll be the one to decide when it's finished," Hamilton wrote on his Instagram account. In addition to a flood of positive comments from fans, Hamilton's Mercedes team responded with a crown emoji.

Hamilton had already hit back at "silly" comments

Earlier in the Imola weekend, Hamilton brushed off "silly" and "nonsense" comments about his future at Mercedes. Again not dropping names, Hamilton appeared to be referring to Mika Hakkinen's suggestion that he would be looking to switch teams amid Mercedes' struggles and is likely to be "sulking" behind the scenes . Hamilton took the moment to insist he is "100 per cent committed" to Mercedes and that "there's nowhere else that I want to be".
