“Read some of the stories/reports of my comments on Seb,” Lewis wrote. “Feel the need to clarify my thoughts. Seb is great champion!!
“Not only that, he is a great human being who is funny and humble. Deserves all the success he is having!
“I admire his dedication & ability to consistently perform without mistakes. This is the mark of a true champion.
“Regardless of what you & I may think about his car, at the end of the day he’s doing the perfect job.
“I’m just grateful I get to drive in an era with so many great drivers like him. God Bless & have an amazing day!”
