Lewis Hamilton considering F1 “sabbatical” as Brit speaks directly to Max Verstappen

Lewis Hamilton has a contract with Mercedes for two more seasons and it may not be his last deal, but the 39-year-old is still approaching the twilight of his F1 career

Lewis Hamilton is open to working in Formula 1 after he retires from driving – but admits he may need some time away before coming back.

The seven-time world champion has signed up for at least two more seasons with Mercedes. Even by the end of that contract, although he will be almost 41, there is no reason right now to doubt that he will be in a position to continue racing beyond that.

Hamilton harbours dreams of at least another championship success and doesn’t rule out continuing even if he achieves that. But when he does eventually stop racing, the Brit thinks he will likely need a break.

“I never said that an eighth title would be the endpoint. And I don’t know what follows after driving in Formula 1,” he told Formule1.nl. “I don’t necessarily feel the desire to remain active in Formula 1 any longer but, as I said before, ‘never say never’. I can’t imagine not riding anymore and still being in a pit box somewhere.
