“It’s definitely not going to be a long time before I stop”- Lewis Hamilton on his retirement from Formula 1 amidst rising queries about his career end.
Lewis Hamilton is at the end of his Formula 1 career with him not getting any younger and achieving every accolade possible, the Briton driver is nearing an end to his career in the motorsport.
The point has also been validated by Hamilton who claimed that his time in the sport will soon come to an end, though as of now he wishes to drive a little longer.
“In between this time I definitely think about what’s next,” Hamilton told Sky Sports. “I’m working on different projects away from this, nothing that’s really big enough for me to talk about right this second, but I’m working on those other things whilst trying to be the best prepared I can be.
“I don’t think I’m at my peak, I think I’m in a good area for sure and I still want to continue to race but I don’t know how much longer that will be.
“It’s definitely not going to be a long time before I stop, so this is a period of time to slowly work out what the future holds. I can say I plan to still be here next year, so at least you’ve got a bit of time not to worry.” he further said.
Asks for normality
Despite the return of the sport, the stands remained nearly empty for most of the season, but in the recent races, a partial number of fans have been allowed to attend the events.
But with the rising number of cases in the second wave of Coronavirus across Europe, venues are now backtracking from the development. Amidst all of this Hamilton wishes the return of fans into the circuits.
“I hope we can get back into a normal season next year,” Hamilton added. “This one’s been so difficult, so compact and compressed as it had been, and I miss the fans.
“Sport isn’t really anything without the fans. It’s cool and all (in) these cars, but without those fans making this atmosphere that’s electrifying when they’re here, I really have to say that I’ve really missed them and I know that when I stop that’s the thing I’m going to miss the most.”
