Hamilton ready to fight once again!

It's 32 days until the lights go out in Melbourne and the start of the 2019 season, but Lewis Hamilton is already honing his fighting spirit.

To sharpen his combative psyche, the five-time world champion has added Muay Thai to his physical preparation, a combat sport that uses stand-up striking that relies on fists, elbows, knees and shins, with gloves as the only protection.

Beware all Hamilton rivals, for once again there will be no holding back!
