“I would like to act one day”– Lewis Hamilton is reaching the twilight of his career, and he got some fun plans after his retirement.
Lewis Hamilton has achieved everything possible in Formula 1, and by the end of this year, he will most probably win another title in his name to take his total tally to eight.
After it, maybe the Briton will choose to retire, and Hamilton has started to contemplate his life after F1. For him, an acting career seems to be attractive, and he wants to learn the craft.
“I would like to act one day. I want to be the best, in everything I do, I want to be the best, to do the best I can,” he told DAZN F1. “So, if I’m going to do a film, I’ll go to classes, I’ll study and make sure I express the emotions as I should.
“I don’t have the time right now, so I guess it’s something I’ll do when I retire.”
No Hollywood movie till 2021 at least
Talking about his retirement, Hamilton wants to be on the grid in 2022, but his contract will run out at the end of this year. So, he will be renegotiating soon.
“I plan to be here next year, and I want to be a part of that; I want to help Pirelli,” he said. “It’s something that drivers, all of us, I think, have wished for – [higher] performance tyres – moving forward.
“So it was important for me to see, to gauge where the starting point is and what differences I can help [with]. So that, first of all, from a drivers’ point of view, we have more grip, more mechanical grip in our tyres, less degradation.”
“It was a good test and obviously it was the first step with the tyres. But it definitely wasn’t a bad place to start.”
