LEWIS HAMILTON’S brother has spoken out after the star unfollowed everybody on Instagram.
The Brit was controversially beaten to the F1 title on the final lap in Abu Dhabi by Max Verstappen.
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff later admitted Hamilton will NEVER get over being 'robbed' of the world title by FIA race director, Michael Masi.

Nicolas said: “I think he is just having a bit of a social media break, which I don't blame him for.
