Famous Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton revealed on Thursday that he was involved in a car accident earlier this week.
According to reports, he was driving around Monaco in his $2 million Pagani Zonda in the wee hours of Tuesday morning when he hit a stationary vehicle. Yikes!
But before you worry, the 30-year-old is fine!
Though Lewis did admit the cause of his accident was due to too much partying:
“It was a result of heavy partying and not much rest for 10 days. I am a bit run down. I have been non-stop and trying to fit training in at the same time and not getting a lot of sleep.”
When cops responded to the scene of the accident, he was given a breathalyzer, which he reportedly passed.
We’re just glad he’s okay and no one else was injured.
Hamilton also took to Instagram to clear the air for his fans, posting:
Dear TeamLH, just wanted to let you know why things have been quiet on social media the past few days. I├óΓé¼Γäóve not been well with a fever but I also had a road accident in Monaco on Monday night. Whilst ultimately, it is nobody’s business, there are people knowing my position that will try to take advantage of the situation and make a quick buck. NO problem. Nobody was hurt, which is the most important thing. But the car was obviously damaged and I made very light contact with a stationary vehicle. Talking with the team and my doctor, we decided together that it was best for me to rest at home and leave a day later. But i am feeling better and am currently boarding the plane to Brazil. However, I am informing you because I feel we all must take responsibility for our actions. Mistakes happen to us all but what’s important is that we learn from them and grow. Can’t wait for the weekend Brazil├░┼╕Γäó┼Æ├░┼╕┬Å┬╛ Bless LewisA photo posted by Lewis Hamilton (@lewishamilton) on Nov 11, 2015 at 2:50pm PST
Take care of yourself, Lewis.
