Lewis: Critics wrong to doubt my preparation

From ESPN - July 16, 2017

Lewis Hamilton reckons his dominant performance at the British Grand Prix shows there is no reason to question his lifestyle choices or preparations in Formula One.

Having claimed a commanding pole position on Saturday, Hamilton stormed to a record-equalling fifth British Grand Prix win and his fourth consecutive victory at Silverstone in imperious style, leading every lap and setting the fastest lap of the race to seal his fifth career grand slam.

The Briton faced criticism last week as he decided to miss an F1 demo run in London in favour of flying to Greece for a two-day holiday. He received a media backlash for his no-show at the event but was backed by Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, who labelled the criticism as an "insult".

"There's no reason to question my preparations," Hamilton insisted after the race. "I have more poles than most, I am obviously building up the wins. My performance is second to none, so if you do not know now that my preparation is mainly on point then I guess you never will. I will be training hard next week in different locations. I train myself and know what I needed to do to get myself ready. I think I am very fortunate as I know what is right for me and right to get myself ready.
