Lewis Hamilton has posted an inspirational message ahead of the upcoming Formula One season.
The 35-year-old, who is gearing up ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, posted the message along with a topless photo of himself.
The message, which went out to 5.6 million of his Twitter followers and 14.5 million of his Instagram followers, read: "Every year I try to find the right balance between being the fittest athlete I can be, a good businessman and deliver on all platforms.
"It is far from easy but I give it my all. I listen to my body, fuel it to the best of my knowledge.
"This year, I've managed to push further and be fitter and stronger than the years before which I'm so happy about. I feel more ready than ever as I embark on my journey to the first race of the season.
He continued: "I just want to encourage you all out there, your body and mind are one. Take care of it, feed your body and your mind with the right ingredients. Health is wealth!
"If you believe you can't do something that is just the wrong attitude because you can do anything you put your mind to. You need to develop a positive frame of mind and working out will help you do that and feel better about yourself. I know you can do it, now you need to know it too!! #teamlh #youcandoit #believeinyourself"
Like other sports, coronavirus has meant that some races have been postponed.
The Chinese Grand Prix was postponed last month amid the virus outbreak – while the Vietnam GP is set to commence on April 5th, even though the Hanoi track is just 100 miles from the Chinese border.
Bahrain Grand Prix will go ahead – but behind closed doors, amid fears that the virus could spread further.
The Bahrain International Circuit released a statement on Sunday which read: "In consultation with our international partners and the Kingdom’s national health Taskforce, Bahrain has made the decision to hold this year’s Bahrain Grand Prix as a participants-only event.
"As an F1 host nation, balancing the welfare of supporters and race goers is a tremendous responsibility. Given the continued spread of Covid-19 globally, convening a major sporting event, which is open to the public and allows thousands of international travellers and local fans to interact in close proximity would not be the right thing to do at the present time.
"But to ensure that neither the sport, nor its global supporter base, is unduly impacted, the race weekend itself will still go ahead as a televised event."
