So over the weekend, Lewis Hamilton took time to brush off the criticism about his lifestyle.

His lifestyle has become something of its own topic in recent months, particularly owing to how much Hamilton is sharing with the world via his Snapchat and other social media accounts.

He’s entering the Chinese Grand Prix his week after some time spent in New York City, where he had his first ever subway experience, and also met up with “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah. He’d spent time in the city in February as well, for a couple galas and premieres.

He was also profiled by The New York Times in its fashion section.

Here’s some of the social posts as Hamilton took on the Big Apple before heading to China. And if he loses to Nico Rosberg again, I guess we blame New York?
