“I don’t feel like I’m at the end”- Lewis Hamilton on his end of days in Formula 1, as others speculate his motivation to continue may die.
With his seven world titles, Lewis Hamilton has achieved the pantheon of Formula 1, but this season, he may extend the peak of the statistical perfection by another mile.
Many interject that his time in F1 may come to an end, as he may stop finding motivation in what he does after winning his 8th world title, and it would take years for someone to achieve the same.
“In the current position I’m in, I don’t feel like this is the end,” he said during Thursday’s press conference. “Of course, we’ve got these changes that are happening next year, which are exciting,” he said.

“I think this looks like it could be the most exciting season yet,” Hamilton added. “We’ve got new teams, we’ve got new formats, and it’s closer.
“I don’t feel like I’m at the end. But in the next eight months, I’ll find out whether I’m ready to stop or not. I don’t think I will, personally, but you never know.”
We will be at a disadvantage on Sunday- Lewis Hamilton
Since the pre-season testing, Mercedes has been allegedly projecting Red Bull as the favourites and vice versa. But Hamilton confesses that his team will be at a disadvantage on Sunday.
“Each year, it’s a little bit of an unknown, but of course, more often, we have a better feeling of what’s happening with our car; it’s massively exciting for us as a team.”
“We are currently not the fastest. And how are we going to work together, how are we going to unite to get to where we want to be?” he added.
“For me, I’m super excited for that challenge. Seeing some of the other teams close, I think it’s going to be great for fans. But I love that collaboration with the men and women in my team and trying to get to a common goal.”
