Further, he told that he don't believe in sitting there many more times for such kind of happenings. Since then, Hamilton blocked a large number of sports journalists on social media, reported by Mail Online.

However, Hamilton resolved this issue by conducting body the FIA heading into the Austin weekend, as the presence of six-driver Thursday's journalists seminar is compulsory under the regulations of  the game.

Mercedes driver 's promises are also going to be as it is. The media schedule, which is released by the team Mercedes, Lewis is due to fulfill his written media obligations after qualifying and the race.
