He wrote: "Never thought that a few body weight squats would make me happy. Body recovering well from the impact. Hopefully same about the burns on my hands."

"I told him try to get better and we will speak on Sunday or Monday and see how he feels and if it is doable.

"We will cross that bridge when we come to it. I'm not in a hurry to decide what to do, or what is needed because it depends on his health.

"He is just trying to get better to be in the car in Abu Dhabi. That is his aim, and that shows that he wants to keep on doing it."
