“Don’t Feel the Desire to Remain Active in F1”: Lewis Hamilton Makes Big Retirement Statement While Addressing 8th Title Hopes

Lewis Hamilton is inching closer to joining the 40-year-old club as he turned 39 this year in January. Former teammate and rival Fernando Alonso is 42 and yet is performing like he never got older. Yet, the thought of retirement starts creeping into the minds of the fans and the driver himself. And recently, Lewis Hamilton made a big retirement statement as he opened up about his record-breaking, and now mythical-looking 8th championship. 

The 2021 Abu Dhabi GP and what happened at the end is a very controversial topic. Many advise that the 8th title was stolen from Hamilton while others suggest that everyone should accept the official results. Nonetheless, one thing is for sure, Lewis Hamilton isn’t backing out and is still keen on winning the eighth title. This fight was visible in his words while making the announcement of the Mercedes contract extension as he explained that still had unfinished business left. 

However, Mercedes hasn’t been able to provide a competitive car to the Briton in the last 2 years. And with Red Bull starting development of the RB20 much earlier, the hopes are slim for Mercedes in 2024. How long will Hamilton wait for Mercedes to provide him the car to challenge for the title? The Briton isn’t getting any younger. Retirement must be something that will be on his mind. This big question of retirement was put forward to Hamilton in a recent interview.
