Lewis Hamilton has been trying to drive with the utmost dedication during the races of the US Grand Prix, ensuring each of his steps was meticulously executed to perfection. The same goes for Charles Leclerc, who has been grabbing every opportunity in the GP to ensure his victory once again since the Austrian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc grieve on IG after disqualification

Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc were disqualified in Sunday’s race at the United States GP, due to a violation of the FIA’s Article 3.5.9, Technical Regulations, which clearly states the maximum plank thickness that can be used in the race. The inspection was conducted after the race, which was “unfair” for both drivers as they tried their best on the grid.

The disqualification of the drivers dragged Hamilton and Leclerc to last place. Both of the drivers had an amazing pace throughout the race, with Hamilton almost clinching his first win of the season and Leclerc grabbing the pole position during the previous race. The British driver said that it was “Disappointing to be disqualified” to break the silence after the event.

The whole scenario disappointed the drivers, leaving them disheartened. Hamilton conveyed his dismay by posting on Instagram, which showed their hollow faces during the post-race interviews in Austin. Only one word, “mood,” was written in the caption to express their agony despite performing well at the event.
