Hamilton regularly complained of “hopping” throughout the weekend and was seen clinging to his back after the race, in which he finished a respectable fourth.

There were suggestions that the Mercedes man would have to miss this weekend’s race in Montreal.

But Hamilton has now revealed that physiotherapist Angela Cullen is working tirelessly to get him fit to fight.

The British ace revealed his new daily routine, which includes rounds of acupuncture, cryotherapy and stretching.

Sharing a picture of himself and Cullen’s mid-physio on Instagram, Hamilton wrote, “Forever grateful to have @cullen_angela with me when I travel.

“Without her I would be lost.

“We’ve been working on it every day… stretching, acupuncture, and cryo to help us recover.

“I feel much better and was able to do my first run today.

“Push through.”

Hamilton isn’t the only racer struggling with the porpoise problem as the new era of F1 cars begins.

Teammate George Russell claimed it was only a matter of time before the impact caused an accident as the drivers couldn’t see where they were going.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff even said Hamilton was a question for Sunday’s race in Montreal.

The sport’s governing body, the FIA, responded by saying they will investigate what is causing some of this year’s cars to bounce violently as the cars hit top speed.

The consequence could be bad news for Hamilton and Russell, however, as the FIA ​​may impose strict rules to improve driver safety – which may well be the case SLOW her car.

Mercedes, who have struggled with skipping all season, have tried to lower their car to prevent this.

But that has since triggered another problem as her car now bottoms out when hitting a bump in the road.

There is a feeling that the FIA ​​could limit ride height, which could force Mercedes to increase the height of their car.

That in turn could cause them to lose some of their intended aerodynamic advantage, resulting in lower speeds.

And that’s the last thing Mercedes needs, as it’s already far from the pace of rivals Red Bull and Ferrari.
